Reinforce your spiritual foundation

This retreat is designed to help practising devotees to dive deep into the sweet ocean of Krsna consciousness. It will take place during the Easter Holidays and in the beautiful blossoming spring season. The Bhakti immersion retreat will help participants to strengthen their philosophical understanding, obtain tips and skills for their own practice of bhakti yoga and to become attracted to the sweetness and beauty of the Divine couple.

H.H. Sacinandana Swami, H.H. Svayam Bhagvan Keshava Swami and H.G. Hari Prasad Prabhu will be our main teachers.

 

H.H.Sacinandana Swami is well known for his enthusiasm in sharing Srila Prabhupada´s teachings and in helping practicing devotees to reach deeper levels of Krsna consciousness

 

H.H. S.B. Keshava Swami is a spiritual author, community mentor, dynamic teacher and worldwide traveller. In 2002, after graduating from UCL with a BSc in Information Management, he adopted full-time monastic life to expand his knowledge, deepen his spirituality, and share these timeless principles with the wider society.

 

For over twenty years, Keshava Swami was a resident monk at the Bhaktivedanta Manor, the largest Radha Krishna Temple in the UK (purchased by George Harrison). There he pioneered the School of Bhakti, led the monastic training programme and drove forward national outreach projects. He has designed numerous courses on Vedic theology, lifestyle management, and spiritual self-development, and also authored ten books which bring the ancient wisdom into the modern context. In 2022, Keshava Swami accepted vows of lifetime renunciation and became a renounced travelling teacher of Krishna Consciousness.

 

This event is organised in collaboration with the Swiss yatra who will support the retreat with heart-warming bhajans and delicious Prasadam. It will also be an opportunity for deep reflections and association with like-minded devotees.

 

H.G. Hari Parsad Prabhu is a disciple of H.H. Radha Govinda Swami Maharaj, and joined ISKCON in 2002. Prabhuji is a very learned Sanskrit scholar and gives deep lectures on shastra, especially the writings of the Six Goswamis of Vrindavan. He has been a member of the Shastric Advisory Council since 2016.
