Start the new year with a commitment and offering of peace and respectful understanding towards yourself and others with mantra kirtan chanting and reflecting upon the sacred sounds of peace mantras and the divine names of consciousness.  The ancient practice of havan for purification and transformation commences at 12 midnight on New Years Eve. 

During the retreat create self-spaciousness to reflect on the year that has passed, respecting what you have learned and what you have practised in 2022, but not discounting the so-called setbacks as these are the very fabric of life and potential for positive change.

The most precious gift we can give to ourselves and others is peace and deep respect. Set a conscious resolve for peace, to overcome the obstacles that may stand in the way of fulfilling ones resolve. 

A sankalpa is like a constant light on the other shore beckoning you to move in that direction aligning both your inner and outer aspirations.

If you do not find peace within, you will not find it anywhere else. The Goal of Life is the attainment of Peace and not the achievement of power, name, fame and wealth. Sw. Sivananda

Join us and others for this auspicious celebration to commence the new year with the lighting of a peace sankalpa candle.  Many candles of sincere intent illuminate the path of peace, meaningfulness and actions valuable for yourself and others.
