Join us for an all-day retreat with Nayaswami Pranaba in the serene surroundings of the Springhill Retreat Center in Richardson, Texas. The day will include two classes, sadhana, two meals and a wonderful evening kirtan.

Saturday morning class: Making the Most of Our Spiritual Journey

As we get inspired by our spiritual awakening, it can happen sometimes that we also face various challenges, and we can get discouraged, or perhaps frustrated along the way.  With all that is going on in the world around us during these times, it is sometimes the case that we feel that we are being drawn into negative currents. But this doesn’t have to be true. We can actually at this time be more dynamic instruments for positive qualities. Each of us can open up to our own individual growth, but also be more clear channels for those around us, and for the world at large. We’ll explore together how to deepen and refine our spiritual journey.

Saturday afternoon class: Offering ourselves to the Divine

For deeper aspects of our spiritual growth it’s important for us to tune into offering who we are into the Divine, and not just feel that we are controlling everything. What does that actually mean in our daily lives? We’ll share ways to make this inspiring and practical.
