October 20 – 22, 2017

Ananda Marga Ashram, Farm and Learning Center, Vig

As the days get shorter and the nights get longer nature invites us to spend more time in meditation and exploring the inner world of art, music and creative expression. This retreat blends a daily routine of chanting, meditation and yoga with experiential workshops on spirituality, nature poetry, improvisation, choral singing, and circle dancing
