We can only keep what we have by giving it away…

We now provide past participants the opportunity to serve an upcoming Silent Meditation Retreat. Having experienced a profound transformation and opening of the heart as a retreat participant, we invite you to deepen your practice by supporting the journey of a new group of participants.

People willing to perform approximately 4 hours of service per day in the retreat can attend any meditation, yoga, satsang and Q&A sessions that do not conflict with their work schedule. Participants in this service program are required to take a vow of noble silence, only speaking where it relates to the working tasks they are assigned. They do not have to pay for the retreat, but food is not included. Service positions are only available for the 5-Day & 9-Day retreats.
