Conducted Weekend Retreats For Women and Men (Regional Retreats)
On a few weekends throughout the year, SRF monastics lead specially conducted retreats, which are tailored for men and women who are students of the Self-Realization Fellowship Lessons. During these weekends, retreatants take part in a more concentrated retreat program that includes longer periods of meditation, review and practice of the SRF meditation techniques, and classes on various aspects of Paramahansaji’s How-to-Live teachings. During periods of free time, retreatants can enjoy a 10-acre area of the forested retreat, beautifully landscaped with meditation areas, flower gardens, walking paths, and ponds. Conducted weekend retreats begin at 7:30 p.m. on Friday and conclude on Sunday at 12:30 p.m. Because of the many requests we receive, reservations for conducted weekend retreats must be made in advance. To make a reservation, or to request information, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org, or call 540-635-5066. Please provide us with your name, phone, city or town you are coming from, and whether or not you are an SRF lessons student (and if so, please let us know if you are also a Kriyaban.) Lodging and meals are not available for the conducted weekend retreats. There are also a variety of restaurants in town, three miles away. On Saturdays, participants are invited to bring their own meals to enjoy in the various seating areas on the grounds during the one-hour lunch and two-hour dinner breaks.
