VEDANTA RETREAT WITH SHARADA DEVI
Röstånga Friday – Sunday, September 15-17, 2017.

We are happy to inform you that Sharada Devi will unfold the Vedanta teachings for us who feels inspired and are devoted – such a warm blessing! We will gather in Röstånga and stay imbedded by the magical nature of the National park ”Söderåsens nationalpark” in Skåne, south of Sweden.

Welcome to join us for a long weekend where we will be guided lovingly into the heart of Vedanta. Sharada will give classes/talks, satsangs and guide us in meditation, puja and vedic chanting and ceremonies. If the weather allows, Kasza will offer morning yoga classes outdoor. She guides gentle asana and pranayama practice, waking up the body and breath – getting physically ready for a full day of dedicated studying. And whatever weather, we will be nourished by the magical nature surrounding us and the togetherness we create. To keep the cost down, we’ll all help out with sevas (practical duties).

This is a special and rare opportunity to spend time in the teachings of Vedanta, being guided through Meditation, introduced to Vedic Chanting and participate in Puja, which is a beautiful ceremony with offerings.

Sharada has been devoted to study this sacred knowledge that frees our hearts from suffering and she has learned the practices that help one to grow and overcome obstacles in life.

For those who are new to Vedanta, this will be a wonderful opportunity to be introduced step by step into a tradition that has been passed on from teacher to disciple. For those who already have been exposed to the teaching, it will be a nice time to deepen and assimilate their understanding of Vedanta. As it is a lifetime contemplation on the nature of I, that is essentially free from all limitations, one can always gain more clarity.
A mirror in words that says that I am everything I want to be already, that I am complete, full and whole, always was, always will be.
This a vision that is dear, attractive and desired by all people at all time and at all places. Therefore it is a timeless teaching.

Her revered teachers Swami Dayananda, Swami Vagishananda and Shree Radhaji have blessed Sharada to pass on Vedanta and all the beautiful devotional practices. She teaches with all heart and her love, patience, compassion and clarity help one to see what Vedanta is saying in a seemingly effortless way.

Join us for this long weekend with same-hearted people, who have a deep value for spirituality, integrity, devotion and truth.
