Spiritual Acceleration Weekend

A weekend of seminars on some very practical and relevant topics… not to be missed!

Srila Prabhupada has gifted us with the most potent of processes. His teachings lay out a spiritual program which will gradually remove everything unwanted in our hearts and establish pure loving service as an irrevocable fact. The process is simple and sublime.

However, simple does not mean easy. In fact, practitioners find that obstacles and difficulties abound. Nothing good in life comes easily, and bhakti is no different. But how can we negotiate the difficulties that any bhakti-yogi goes through, and even use them to propel us forward?

Furthermore, problems or no problems, how can we act to empower ourselves in our spiritual pursuit? What insights do the acaryas provide us that we can practically apply to help us to move forward with strength and confidence on our march back to Godhead?

This weekend will take you to depths of life and Krishna consciousness that you may not have known existed. These sessions are relevant for newcomers as well as seasoned devotees.
