College of Vedic Studies Retreat 2017


Details about the Retreat


From 8th – 12th October 2017, the College of Vedic Studies is happy to announce that we will be having our long awaited annual retreat. This is a great opportunity to associate with like minded spiritual people and learn about how to go deeper into spiritual life. This is why we have entitled the retreat ‘The Inside Job’


Life can get busy with work, family and friends. The sad reality is that the first thing to suffer is that which is most important in the ultimate sense, our spiritual life. We all need some time to simply absorb ourselves in the process of Krishna consciousness. To this end, the College of Vedic Studies aims to bring spiritual retreats to allow devotees to get away from everything else and simply reconnect with Krishna. The retreat will be packed with kirtans, life changing seminars, sanga and prasadam – providing an  immersive, transformational and ultimately devotional experience for all. There will also be plenty of time to make new friends, or just relax by the fireplace and enjoy your well deserved break.


We can now confirm His Holiness Candramauli Swami and His Grace Sutapa Prabhu will be leading a number of the life changing seminars we have lined up!
