Hansacharaņam Retreat

with His Holiness Swami Vidyadhishananda

Join our Hansavedas Sangha for a memorable and divine retreat experience over the auspicious full moon weekend of 31st July 2015. This annual Guru Purnimā celebration is an immensely rich Vedic tradition to honour the lineages of teachers. Prepare for a rare blissful experience, especially from the divine blessings conferred by our sat-guru Swami Vidyadhishananda at the Guru Purnimā blessing line. This gathering is a time-honoured traditional fellowship where devotees make offerings from their hearts and the choicest blessings are bestowed by the lineage of spiritual masters.

This year the retreat includes a Children’s Camp for children aged 3 to 12 years, so we encourage and welcome you to bring your family. The teaching will also cover yoga-stretches for seniors or those who are less flexible. In addition to full moon meditation, prānāyāma and yoga-vinyāsa, other salient features of the teachings include:

  • Blissful Guru Purnimā blessing line
  • Family values to inspire children
  • Creating blessed feelings at home
  • Values that build virtues and inner strength
  • How mindful actions can make us feel divinity
  • Understanding merits and demerits of action
  • Healthful living for wellness and wellbeing
  • Contemplative lifestyle to nurture a daily meditation practice

Check-in: Thursday, 30th July from 2:00pm – 5:00pm
Check-out: Sunday, 2nd August from 8:00am – 11:00am

Meals & Lodging

Your retreat includes three nights of accommodation plus three meals per day. Vegetarian meals, which are gluten-free and mostly vegan, will be lovingly prepared according to sattwic Ayurvedic principles. The lodging is apartment style. Each apartment has 4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a living room and a kitchen. Two of the bedrooms are double rooms and two of the bedrooms are single rooms. Individuals will be assigned to shared same-sex apartments. Married couples are welcome to stay together in a double room. Kindly note that the two beds in the double rooms are lofted and are accessed via a step ladder.

Family Lodging
Families are welcome to book any combination of doubles and singles and will be assigned to shared apartments. Families who wish to reserve an entire private apartment should sign up for 2 people in singles and 4 people in doubles. If you are a family with children, please do not hesitate to call us at 909-543-6003 if you have any questions about registration and lodging.

Children’s Camp
Children aged 3-12 years who are accompanied by an adult are welcome to join the Hansacharanam Children’s Camp. This camp will be divided into two sections by age group and will feature the theme of Guru Tattwa
our first teacher is our mother, the second is our father, third are our teachers (teachers in education, spiritual teachers); and then it encompasses our guests, the surrounding community and nature. The essence of the “teacher” is everywhere, in everything and in everyone. To support the theme of reverence towards our teachers, the Children’s Camp will include activities such as: arts & crafts, reading, creative writing, song & kirtan, yoga & dance, games and other activities. The Children’s Camp sessions will coincide with class sessions for adults on the schedule, but children will eat all meals and snacks with their parents and will stay with their parents in the apartments. A separate Children’s Camp schedule will be available denoting when children are expected to be with their parents and when they will be engaged in separate Children’s Camp activities.
