Boston Region Spring Retreat 2022


Dear Brothers and Sisters, Namaskar!

It is a great pleasure to invite and welcome you on the occasion of the Spring Retreat & Ánanda Purn’ima (Baba’s Birthday) Celebration on May 13 – 16, 2022, at our new Master Unit, Ananda Kalpataru in Connecticut, Boston Region, New York Sector. Since the Master Unit is new, this is the first spring we can plan a retreat centered around developing the Master Unit and our rural community in the Boston region. The retreat will be a hybrid program, in-person and virtual.

We will have several practical workshops and classes on various steps to develop a master unit, including organic farming, composting, establishing a fruit orchard, beekeeping, our vision for Ananda Kalpataru, as well as RAWA programs and spiritual practices such as Dharma Cakra, Akhanda Kiirtan, Katha Kiirtan.
Ananda Kalpataru has a beautiful forest and natural environment, and children and families can enjoy exciting excursions and other in-person programs. At this time, we are planning to provide accommodation nearby the master unit for convenient access to activities.
