“Be Still and Know that I am God.” A very simple command, yet challenging to achieve in a busy world.

Overwhelming peace is one of the first sensations to greet you when you arrive at the Meditation Retreat. It is a palpable energy that washes over you, and makes inner quiet, calmness, and healing possible at last.

These retreats are designed to support you in an a profound experience of inner peace. Start with a weekend retreat if silent retreats are new for you. Discover that sharing silence and meditation with others can give you clear understanding of the words, “When two or more are gathered in My name, (in Spirit), there am I.”

Kriyaban Retreat
May 30- 31

This guided seclusion is only for Ananda Kriyabans, so it is a rare opportunity to go deep into the practice of Kriya Yoga and meditation. The seclusion will include:

  •  long meditations
  •  a guided practice of Kriya
  •  a class on deepening your practice of Kriya
  •  listening to archival talks of Swami Kriyananda leading Kriya initiations

Participants will be in silence during the retreat. The guided kriyaban seclusions have been very, very helpful for those who want a deeper experience of Kriya and meditation.
