Be A Monk Challenge

What is the BE A MONK 7- day challenge?

Spend 7 days at the magnificent Bhaktivedanta Manor – a spiritual sanctuary located in the Hertfordshire countryside, and take an expeditious quest into the realm of spirituality – uncovering the mysteries of the spirit soul, the thought-provoking concept of karma, the mind-blowing experiences of reincarnation and much more. No amount of space travel can compare to the flight of your very own experience of your inner self.

What will it do for me?

The Be a monk challenge will give you an opportunity to cut yourself off from everyday distractions and focus fully on spiritual practices. You will get to know yourself better spiritually, strengthen your mind and determination, and most of all – have an amazing time with like-minded individuals!

What do I learn as part of the challenge?

Every day in the challenge will take you one step closer to something you’ll discover as part of the 7-day quest. Here is something you will do:

Engage in meditation, singing and dancing every morning as part of the spiritual sessions.
Later on in the morning you’ll take part in various activities like spending time on the organic farm, learning to work with cows and oxen, distributing food on our ‘Food for all’ campaign, and many other activities around the temple.
In the afternoons you will learn topics of philosophy like the soul, karma, reincarnation and practical applications of ancient philosophy
Evenings will be free to spend some time for yourself, reflect, and relax.
There will also be sessions on Jujitsu, Yoga and music
Delicious vegetarian meals – 3 times a day
Opportunity to speak to the monks and share experiences.

Hang on, where will I sleep overnight?
You’ll be staying in the guest quarters at the Bhaktivedanta Manor, an ancient historical mock-Tudor mansion in the company of fellow ‘7-day monks’ and mentors to give you guidance and advice. Here, check this video out. That’s the place…

Will it cost me anything?

Hmm, just a little bit. £50 for the 7-day challenge, but that’s peanuts for the rewards you get! And it all goes to charity.
