This free retreat gives you the time and space to find more depth – something which is often difficult to do in the midst of the busyness of daily life.

We are offering a unique opportunity to participate in a free weekend retreat at one of our retreat centers around the world. The two-day retreat is centered around the question Where and what is happiness? The retreat is based on and inspired by the Wisdom and Teachings of the spiritual teacher Avatar Adi Da Samraj. We hope that this weekend will be very meaningful and inspiring for you.

The schedule includes

  • Guided meditations
  • Yoga / Tai Chi classes
  • Video presentations
  • Group considerations
  • Sharing personal stories
  • Contemplative walks in the serene grounds
  • Fresh vegetarian meals, made from produce grown locally

Maximum number of participants: between 12 and 18 depending on the location.

Experienced hosts
The retreats are hosted by a team of experienced and longtime practitioners of Avatar Adi Da’s teachings who guide the retreat program in an inspiring fashion.
All service to these retreats is offered on a volunteer basis. We are happy that – through these retreats – we make this essential wisdom available to a large audience, contributing to the wellbeing, peace, tolerance and enlightenment of all beings on this planet.

Each retreat has proven to be inspiring and thought provoking, and for some even life changing.

From Saturday morning till Sunday end of the afternoon.
