We are happy to announce the Sadhana Retreat, the first of its kind.

Dear Prabhus,

Hare Krishna. Please accept my obeisances. All glories to Srila Prabhupada.

We are happy to announce the Sadhana Retreat, the first of its kind.

It will be held on Easter Weekend, April 22 to April 24, at the Luther Springs Retreat Center in Hawthorne, Florida, one hour from Alachua and forty-five minutes from Gainesville.

The retreat is being facilitated by Mahatma, Laxmimoni, Sesa and Badahari Prabhus and coordinated through Bhakti Life.

Here’s a little about it:

The Sadhana Retreat is a transcendental vacation in which you live with devotees and focus on improving your Krishna consciousness for an entire weekend. The retreat fosters greater bonding with devotees as you hear from them and also share your challenges and realizations. The Sadhana Retreat is a powerful way to experience the special purification and upliftment that comes from supportive devotee association.

At the retreat center we create a temple environment by having a regular morning and evening program. During the day interactive classes and workshops are held, and in the afternoon there is free time for extra chanting, study, journaling, and associating with devotees. And, of course, there is plenty of wonderful prasadam and kirtana.

Dedicating an entire weekend to improving your spiritual life is a wonderful gift to offer yourself. The retreat is like a transcendental vacation in which you become renewed and inspired in your Krishna consciousness.

We encourage you and the devotees in your community to take advantage of this wonderful opportunity.

When is the next retreat?

I got "tricked" at this Sadhana retreat. Now I am chanting 16 rounds a day instead of wasting my life.
I sure hope you will have another retreat soon. I am so looking forward to other people getting "tricked" like I was. It was a blast!!! Thanks so much!!!
