Annual Ladies Retreat with Swami Shrikarananda – Choose your Power
August 17, 2018 @ 8:00 pm - August 18, 2018 @ 6:00 pm
About the Topic
Every mind is unique and extra ordinary. Its abilities and possibilities are infinite and unimaginable. However, its blossoming depends on its will – Sankalpa. We can ‘will’ ourselves to enlightened heights or plunge ourselves into ignoble darkness.
Shiva Sankalpa Suktam is a praise of this extraordinary mind and a prayer for divinising its thoughts.
Join us on this special journey with Swamiji and like minded Ladies.
Why should you come to the retreat?
