To create a small retreat - A place in nature where people can come to enjoy some peace, tranquility and explore their psyche to understand it better. Dialogues will be one of the main ways this exploration will happen, apart from the physical conditioning that may aid this exploration. Folks can come for overnight stays or for a few days at a stretch.
As a starting point, we will start conducting retreats at a rented location. These one and two day retreats will hopefully bring together a small group of people who are concerned with the human condition and with the transformation of the human consciousness.


The vedanta retreat at Olema is a possibility. Jyotindra to find out if they will allow us to conduct a retreat there.

Advantage: It offers vast spaces - a perfect place for reflection

Disadvantage: Access by car is the only viable means of transportation (carpool is possibe, if it can be worked out).

Size of group

No more than 8 people in each retreat event. This will ensure that effective dialogue can ensue and meals can be cooked by the participants as a group. The small size will also allow for bonding among participants.


The meals will be cooked by the participants themselves as a group. This will be the case except for two times: Friday evening dinner (people checking in at different times) and Sunday morning Breakfast (tired from Yoga?).

All produce needed will be provided by us. All the produce will be organic and procured locally to ensure that it is fresh.


The event will happen over a weekend. Participants will come to the retreat Friday evening.
