Thursday 25 to Sunday 28 September, 2014
This Retreat will be presented by His Holiness Sacinandana Swami. Learn how to weave together the facets of sadhana, seva and community to create balance, harmony and fulfilment in your spiritual life.

Sacinandana swami says: “The Tree of Life is a comprehensive program for spiritual development, a system based on a balanced, sattvic life and the teachings of Srila Prabhupada and the sacred texts of our Gaudiya sampradaya. I have been developing this program for over fifteen years, working with a talented team of fifty devotees. The Tree of Life program is important because it recognizes and fulfills our needs in a way that fully supports spiritual growth.”
