Topic: “A Reality Check” based on Bhaja Govindam
Bhaja Govindam has great appeal even to this day as it gives useful instructions on life.
Like a parent to a child, Adi Shankaracharyaji in these verses of Bhaja Govindam admonishes us to shake us out of our slumber and thoughtlessness, urging us to get over our obsession with mundane daily lives and to begin our search for diviner living which will lead us to greater success, complete fulfilment and permanent happiness while we live.
We will also learn techniques to handle life’s day to day situations including parenting. We will have interactive sessions with our children so that parents and children can learn about each other from each other and create special bonds. A camp not to be missed.
Join us and learn the techniques on how to live happily.
Topic: Dashavatar “Lord Matsya & Lord Kurma”
While the Children will learn about the first two avatars of Lord Vishnu as Lord Matsya and Lord Kurma. Know how the Lord comes to protect his devotees and inspires us to be good and dharmic.
As part of these sessions, we will learn tips and tools on how to deal with life in a positive, productive and joyful way and not get overwhelmed with situations around us. The secrets of how to invoke the lord’s protection, grace and inspiration.
This is a weekend just for you, your family and friends, to spend in reflection and work on your own peace and happiness and readjustments and fine tuning of your daily life.
The daily program includes the following: Morning & evening prayers, bhajans, stories, study of scriptures, workshops, nature walks, games, videos, yoga, meditation, discussions and exciting group activities.
We will also serve delicious vegetarian food and snacks.
The family retreat will bond families together with love, happiness and harmony. Not only will all family members grow together, but each will learn about themselves and each other in a safe and nurturing environment. It is a wonderful opportunity to be in association with like-minded seekers and develop life-long friendships.
