The Retreat is yet another exclusive program endeavoured by Akhil Bhaktiyoga Foundation which is being organized every year consecutively from the year 2000. Retreat is a distinctive approach towards the spirituality which gives the recipient the edge and the perception to look beyond the normal and see beyond the ordinary exploring the divine secrets of the human life.
In this rat race of present day materialism we often tend to forget to connect with the divine to attain that peace and tranquillity which everyone so richly deserves and aspires for. In the world so marked by high pace of life, conflicts and stress we often feel of being overstressed at work or at home, having lost touch with oneself and our cultural roots, having lost peace of mind and losing the direction or being confused by more questions than answers and negative thoughts.
We surely empathise with you and understand how much you need to rejuvenate your life and give it a fresh launch and that is what retreat provides you. Gurudev Acharya Shri Akhil Ji Maharaj has healed thousands of individuals here in America by the age old time tested methods from the treasures of Shrimad Bhagwat, Bhagwat Gita and Ramayana. The ambrosial discourses of Maharaj Ji have reverberating effect on the listeners who discover a new facet of life which was never experienced before.
This workshop which includes integrated Yoga and Pranayam sessions, guided meditation, intensive and thought stimulating discourses on the Vedic Scriptures and other literature and doubt clearing sessions on the grey areas of life are the core curriculum of the program. Few of the deeper subjects are stupendously discussed here in retreat such as the Karmic influence on the present life and how the Karmas are recorded, and what role does the Dharma have in the daily life conducts and also on how the each individual is uniquely created and designed by the supreme lord and many more. Not only this, you also get the chance to observe the various Poojans at the serene ambience of the three rivers at California which stands nothing less than the holy sangam of Prayag with Ganga, Yamuna and Saraswati.
Unlike others where you become the small part of the large crowd, the retreat treats you individually in the small group of like minded people. For five days you disconnect from all the distractions and gradually mould yourself into a natural discipline and undergo a spiritual transformation. Held at the banks of the Kaweah River, in the quiet and serene foothills of the Sierra Nevada Mountains and at the gateway of Sequoia National Park, this is the closest you can get with the nature and find peace, inner healing and personal integration on the way to intimacy with the God.
