About us

“You are not given the light by anyone—not even by a spiritual teacher. You are that light.” — Swami Satchidananda

In a world of many distractions and difficulties, where do you look for guidance? The serenity of silence and the practices of Integral Yoga will help you to realize the guiding light already within you.

Join us for the New Year’s Silent Retreat to gather the spiritual wisdom and strength needed to face the day-to-day surprises in life with the guidance of your own inner light. Offering support to handle all of life’s challenges, this retreat provides:

  • Silence to experience inner and outer peace and tranquility
  • Instruction in pranayama (yogic breathing techniques), meditation, and Hatha Yoga for focus and rejuvenation
  • Delicious, vegetarian meals for optimal health and well-being
  • Opportunities to absorb the teachings through talks given by Integral Yoga senior practitioners, ministers, and swamis (monastics)

Remember, these days away from the demands of daily life are intended to invite deep reflection. This guidance will help you to make inspiring goals for 2019!

Take this retreat hOMe with Sri Swami Satchidananda’s teachings.
