Gita Nagari, New Vrindavana, New York – USA Summer Retreat 2017

Pandava Sena’s Senagetaway have been organising Summer Retreats to popular Krishna Conscious centres all around Europe for over 15 years, taking inquisitive students to experience the extraordinary pleasures of dynamic spiritual life. Over the past 50 years, we have established over 600 centres, farm communities and vegetarian restaurants worldwide, all focused on deep spiritual growth. Senagetaway have been holding life changing retreats annually to many locations such as Spain, Italy, Germany, Belgium and France. Now after many years of staying within Europe, we have arranged to take you to the other side of the pond. We would be honoured to have your presence on this year’s trip: Awaken – The best dreams happen when you’re awake.

This year you will be able to join us for an amazing 2 weeks in beautiful places such as Gita Nagari and New Vrindavan. Senagetaway is inviting 50 lucky souls from the UK to reunite with 50 fortunate devotees from America to inspire, learn and share with each other. Together, we will visit New York to uncover the hidden stories of the beginnings of Krishna Consciousness and empowered with this knowledge, we will collaborate on new and innovative projects across the seas. Many more surprises, better than ever before, fill the days of this trip and we encourage you not to hesitate and apply while spaces are available. 

Famous for knowing the art of chanting Hare Krishna, HH Sacinandana Swami has travelled the world preaching the mercy of Kirtan and how to connect with the Holy Names: we will be following him deep into the pastimes of the Lord. We will also be joined by HH Candramauli Swami who is renowned for his sweet nature. He will be leading us through his inspiring contribution to Srila Prabhupada’s movement and how this can be applied in our lives to initiate big projects and take up preaching spirit.

We are also very fortunate to be joined by HG Gaur Gopal Prabhu who is famous for his humorous seminars and down-to-earth life lessons. His ecstatic kirtans and dancing beats will travel with us throughout the trip. If all this doesn’t entice you, we will be visiting a variety of spiritually nourishing places and hosting huge kirtan festivals with devotees such as Agnidev Prabhu, Acyuta Gopi and many other kirtaniyas. 

Make sure that you don’t miss out on this once in a lifetime opportunity and book your place now by following the simple application below. Senagetaway are looking for devotees practising Krishna Consciousness and serving under Pandava Sena or PS Alumni with the condition of being above 18 as of 1st August 2017.
