Bhakti Yoga Retreat with MD & VA College Students!

We had loads of fun hosting 35 vibrant, enlivening College Students from MD and VA 2 weekends ago.  What started of as a day trip for 5 students turned into a full on Retreat of 35, with comfortable overnight stay; delicious meals; an exciting tractor ride tour of our Farm; a humorous cooking class on how to make Agnihotra's Peach Cobbler; a deep and creative slide presentation of themes of the Bhagavad Gita by Visakha devi dasi; sweet kirtans with Syam Kisore, Haripriya, Saci, Sivam, Ramdas and others; connecting with the earth by transplanting seedlings alongside our Organic Growers; and starting with Phase 1 of the landscaping around our up and coming Wellness Center!  We even had a great turn-out at our first spiritual gathering of the day at 4:30am!

A huge thank you to each of our newfound friends for an enriching time, and special thanks to Devaprastha, Padma-malini, Sankirtan Yagna and Danielle for bringing the students out to GNYF!
