Why an Ashram Retreat?

Throughout the world today there is a growing awareness that life as we are living it is unsustainable, both personally and globally. As a result, vast numbers of people are seeking something deeper and more meaningful than the acquisition of things and fleeting experiences.

This trend has made ashrams the new go-to place; beautiful, contemplative settings where you can discover a sense of inner peace and contentment that will follow you home, to your family, your workplace and your community.
