After a long period of the Pandemic, we finally had on March 18 – 20, 2022, a very successful in-person retreat organized by Didi Ananda Acira and Didi Ananda Hitaprabha, attended by around 20 people, including children. We had many different activities where everyone really enjoyed and was inspired. We had a lot of spiritual practices with very joyous and vibrated Kiirtan led by brothers Nityananda and Mayank. Didi Ananda Acira gave a spiritual class on Kos’as where everyone experienced the different layers of the mind through activities.
We had karma yoga where the margiis did different duties, such as tree planting, clearing up some trash, and fixing the house’s equipment (table, electricity, etc.)
A very delicious sentient food was served with the help of margiis led by Didi Ananda Hitaprabha. We also had some fun activities such as treasure hunt and face painting, which everyone enjoyed, especially the families. We ended our retreat by celebrating the Holi festival with colors. Everyone was very inspired in the retreat and looking forwards to the next retreat.
