This retreat will include:

  • 24-hour access to the “Crystal Cave,” at the site of our old monastery, for silent meditations. (This cave stays cool and comfortable no matter how hot it gets outside!)

  • Relaxed time in a quiet, natural environment, with several nearby nature trails for long walks.

For those who’ve never yet secluded before, we recommend taking the related retreat: The Art of Spending Quality Time with God before participating in this, or at least reading though our many articles on seclusion. Although this retreat is offered from Sunday-Friday, your length of stay is up to you. For those who would like to stay beyond Friday, many of these things are offered every day at this retreat centre.

About the Acharyas

Acharya Dharana served in Ananda Palo Alto (USA), Ananda Assisi (Italy) and Ananda India, before becoming the sole resident Acharya at Ananda Kriya Yogashram in 2015. He first began teaching in Italy, where Swami Kriyananda made him a minister, and has offered numerous classes in Italy and India. Dharana views and presents the eternal truths of yoga from a scientific perspective, due to his education and successful career as a silicon valley engineer. Dharana has had several very enjoyable and memorable one week seclusions, and many of a shorter length.
