Regional Weekend Retreat, May 16 - 18, 2014
Garrison Institute, Garrison, NY
We are pleased to announce this year’s Regional Weekend Retreat conducted by Self Realization Fellowship monks from May 16 through May 18, 2014 at Garrison Institute, Garrison, New York.
The conducted retreat will include classes on Paramahansa Yogananda’s teachings and provide opportunities for group meditations and satsanga (informal talks). The retreat is open to SRF members and friends.
Garrison Institute is a beautifully renovated former Capuchin monastery located on a bluff overlooking the Hudson River surrounded by forest and fields. It is about fifty miles north of New York City. The serene ambience of the Institute, its picturesque surroundings and the various trails, ponds, meadows, and scenic overlooks on its grounds are conducive to deep meditation and silent spiritual retreat.
The retreat begins on Friday evening and concludes on Sunday afternoon. Because of the number of requests received, it is important that reservations be made well in advance.
