Banyan Grove's First Meditation Retreat

Jun 14, 2018, 1 comments, 17 smiles Banyan Grove has begun to offer space for short meditation retreats! Here's a share from a recent participant of a retreat offered to those dedicating their life to the welfare of animals- During just seven days, I learned to breathe again, how to effectively manage stress by responding rather than reacting, to better communicate, appreciate the little things and become more disciplined in my self-care – physical, emotional and spiritual.

We ate exquisite fresh local vegan fare and slept in comfort in the warm, cozy home nestled in the trees.

It is one the most important pilgrim sites for the Sikh community, where hundred thousand people walk in everyday -- and everyone is fed freely as well. Trupti had written: Looking at the untiring minds and hearts of the volunteers in this place, I was awe-struck. Just walking in, volunteers stood with folded hands, requesting our footwear as if we were handing them a bundle of roses. Some offered water, others cleaned the floor, some prayeed. Everyone serves in their own capacity. As we helped chop veggies in the kitchen, we saw how someone would refill our empty baskets, someone would take our chopped veggies, took our waste and delivered it to the cows. It was as if there no space of measuring the "I", and it ... Read Full Story
