Manifesting Full Potential Week, based on the epic Ramayanawith Swami Gangananda

Monday, June 10 @ 2:00 pm - Friday, June 14 @ 12:00 pm EDT

Tuition: Accommodation only


The Ramayana of Valmiki is perhaps the most ancient and glorious epic in the world. It is known as the Adikavyam,–the first poem. It exercises a great molding power on the life of every spiritual aspirant. It contains valuable lessons for husbands and wives, parents and children, brothers and sisters, friends and enemies. The Ramayana reflects the essence of all Vedas and all sacred scriptures. It is a treasure for humanity.


Join us to hear and be delighted in the story-telling, with its hidden meaning, lots of chanting, and the best medicine for the soul: Good Company. Retreat from the stressors and distractions of everyday life and discover a healthier, happier you. This Yoga Vacation Week was designed to ensure complete relaxation and rejuvenation for the body, mind, and soul. Daily yoga classes work in conjunction with the ashram schedule to help your body reconnect with the natural rhythms of nature so that your mind can become more restful and present.


We encourage you to stay for a minimum of three nights (ideally the 5 nights) to fully get the benefits of the program and to settle into the schedule. The minimum requirement is set for two nights. The biggest risk is that you won’t want to leave 🙂


The ashram is all-inclusive and offers you a wonderful retreat in nature, delicious food, 2 daily yoga classes, 2 daily satsangs (communal events with joyous chanting, meditation, and spiritual lectures), and daily workshops about different weekly topics.
