Sadhana Camp 2018

Dates of Discourses: July 20th -July 25th, 2018

Conducted by: Pujya Mukhya Swami Swaroopanandaji

Texts for Study: Jnana Sara and Sri Rama Gita by Pujya Guruji Swami Tejomayananda

The well-balanced daily schedule allows ample time for study, reflection, service, and solitude, so that each student achieves internal integration and external harmony through the confluence of karma yoga, jnana yoga, and bhakti yoga. The secluded and serene ashram surroundings, in the midst of majestic redwood trees and rolling hills, is a perfect and beautiful haven for sincere spiritual seekers.

This camp is for adults only, and is not a family camp.

Please plan your trip using these dates. The camp will start on Friday July 20th morning and end after lunch on Wednesday, July 25th.
