We have 3 articles with photos on the 2014 Yoga Youth and Children’s Retreat in this newsletter! Enjoy!

Swami Veda writes, “On last day of the children’s retreat the children all gathered around me and asked that we do it every year.  I told them it will be so. I did DO some hasya yoga with children. But not much, for lack of physical strength.”

The 2015 Yoga Youth and Children’s Retreat will be 22nd – 31st December 2015 at Swami Rama Sadhaka Grama (SRSG) in Rishikesh.  Contact: childrensretreat@gmail.com  Plan now so you and your family can benefit from this precious opportunity.

At SRSG in March, there will a teacher training retreat, a Navaratra Devi-Puja, and a Silence, Shavasana Practices, and Yoga Nidra Retreat. Check out our Upcoming Events for these and other events!

We invite you to watch Utak csöndekbe (Roads into Silence) - India | 2014, a Pető Szabolcs film, in Hungarian and English. Click on the title to watch. Swami Ritavan Bharati comments, “Creatively produced, with inspiring video, and commentary on a spiritual journey as INDIA-2014.”

Sikkim Adventure

It's not too late to join Swami Ma Radha and other sadhakas for a pilgrimage to Sikkim April 5-11, 2015, after TTP ends. See Sikkim Adventure Registration for more information.

We invite you to share what is happening in their centers and your experiences, insights, and questions. With such sharing, we can learn more about one another and strengthen one another in our sadhana, becoming a true “sangha”.  We welcome your articles. You can write to ahymsin@ahymsin.org
