Retreat with Swami Veda Bharati

“Transitions and Speaking in Silence”

1st – 22nd July 2012

Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA

Please join Swami Veda Bharati in Minneapolis 2012.  The 1st-21st July 2012 retreat period will encompass several events that tie into Swami Veda’s themed message of “Transitions and Speaking in Silence”.

Swami Veda's only US Public Appearance in 2012

This will be Swami Veda's only US public appearance in 2012 and his last "Speaking/Silence" series in North America before he enters a 5-7 year vow of silence in March 2013 in Rishikesh.

As you know, Swamiji's Spirit is ever bright, but his physical body is challenged.  Speaking (lecturing, meeting/appointment requests) is  the most draining on the physical body and the doctors are advising he speak less, and/or intermingle with periods of silence as well as travel less and rest more.  This year it took 1.5 days to recover after 1 hour of lecturing, as well as 3-4 hours of meditation in preparation before an event.  In one year's time, he does not know what it will require. In light of that advice and need, next year Minneapolis 2012 will be Swami Veda's only US public appearance and his last ‘Speaking/Silence’ series before he enters 5-7 year vow of silence in March 2013.

He has much to share in preparing and transitioning students to receive the teachings internally through the Grace of the Lineage.

Plan for the time away “Now” and set it aside for when further details arise. Specific dates and retreat information will be sent as soon as possible.

For now, here is what is known…The retreat with Swami Veda - "Transitions and Speaking in Silence" will include:
