Description

Join us for a ten-week, journey to living bhakti. Over these ten weeks, you will strive to live bhakti in each day with the ongoing support and connection of your teachers and other Atma Kriya Yogis in attendance. By the end of our online retreat, you’ll have a new experience of your daily sadhana and lasting connections with other Atma Kriya Yogis all around the world.

Each week will be dedicated to one of the nine bhaktis, its Atma Kriya Yoga technique, and how it applies to your sadhana, your spiritual path, and everyday life. 

Saturday evening gatherings will focus on developing the knowledge, practical tools and skills, and having a short, guided experience of the bhakti. Each Saturday will end with creating an intention for the week.

Tuesday evenings we will share a ‘sadhana lounge.’ It will be a semi-structured time to be together, discuss how our practice is going, and share an advanced, guided group practice.  

As SPN begins to re-open, we understand many people internationally still seek methods of remaining close to SPN and their greater Bhakti Marga community. For this reason, the retreat will be held online.

What you can expect

Each Saturday and Tuesday during the retreat, a team of dedicated teachers will meet with you via Zoom. Each week will be dedicated to one of the nine bhaktis (plus a special tenth week to wrap it all up). 

  • Gain in-depth information on the bhaktis
  • Opportunity to ask questions, share experiences, and be in community with other Atma Kriya Yogis
  • Guided meditation or other experience to give you a taste of living bhakti
  • Opportunity to set intentions for the week 
  • Receive support from your peers and teachers in living bhakti everyday
  • Advanced, guided group practice 

Is the Living Bhakti Retreat Right for me?

  • The Living Bhakti Online Retreat is open to initiated Atma Kriya Yogis.
  • Participants should be committed to attending all scheduled events.

Place

Bhakti Marga has its headquarters at Shree Peetha Nilaya, meaning ‘Abode of the Maha Lakshmi’, the Divine Mother. It is located in the beautiful German countryside near Wiesbaden. Residents and guests come together every day to participate in special events, prayers, meditation, singing, seva, and to share their love of the Divine with one another.

Shree Peetha Nilaya - Bhakti Marga

In ancient times, yogis would receive Divine Inspiration through the connection to God in Nature. Shree Peetha Nilaya is such a place.

Paramahamsa Sri Swami Vishwananda
