Dates: March 23-25, 2018

This program is designed as a weekend seminar for people to explore the rich and profound philosophy of living and being as explained by Swami Rama. Though the method is simple and direct, the teachings are deep and profound. Swami Rama succinctly puts forth the principles in simple language, so that the participant may gain direct experience.

The video lecture, “Inner Peace in a Troubled World” by Swami Rama, will be covered over the weekend, along with discussions on the main points and practicums on the related techniques.

Three vegetarian meals are provided daily. Accommodation is double occupancy unless otherwise specified. Single accommodation will be given when space is available.

The program begins with orientation at 6:00 p.m. on Friday, and ends Sunday at noon.
