Vows Retreat

July 7-11 2018

Downingtown Yoga & Meditation Center, Downingtown PA

Svaroopa® Vidya Ashram is an Ashram, which means it is a monastery.  Our residential facility is home to yogis who have taken vows of deep practice within our tradition, yet others live the same yogic lifestyle and have the same commitment to their own spiritual upliftment.  Swamiji is creating an opportunity for yogis to formalize their commitment, regardless of where they live and what their life circumstances.  

Click here for more information about the different levels of vows for yogis' differing situations. Those who want to take vows must complete an application, with some levels also including an interview.  Our Vows Preparation course, is a prerequisite for some levels, which is a phone course designed to help you clarify your commitment and your goal.  

Those who qualify will be invited to take vows in this retreat with Swamiji.  The retreat will not be required, as vows can be administered more informally as well as from a distance, but this in-person Vows Retreat will make the process deeper, richer and more understandable.  As well as shared with other who are comitting themselves in the same wy.

Join Swami for a Free Introductory Call on October 8th to learn more.
