Please join us for Sadhu Sanga Kirtan Retreat 2017 featuring ecstatic kirtans, inspiring classes and delicious prasadam in the amazing association of exalted devotees of Sri Sri Radha and Krishna in Boone, North Carolina, which is just a 2-hour scenic drive from Charlotte airport (CLT) or a 3-hour drive from Raliegh-Durham airport (RDU).
Due to unprecedented enthusiasm from devotees all over the country, all the 1000 beds in our onsite accommodation were sold out within the first 1 hour of opening our registration. So we have booked most of the hotels, lodges, cottages, cabins that are available nearby to accommodate another 1000 devotees.
These offsite accommodation places are at a 15-20 minute scenic drive from the retreat center and vary widely in amenities ranging from standard king/queen/double beds with private bath all the way to bunk beds with shared bathroom.
We’ll allocate rooms/beds based on the size of the registered group (e.g. four persons registering together will be given preference for a room with two queen beds, while individuals will be accommodated in bunk beds) and on a first-come first-served basis. As we have negotiated discounted group rates due to bulk booking, we’re able to offer the entire retreat for an offsite registration fee of just $210 per person. This includes accommodation for 3 nights, 9 meals of prasadam (sanctified food), access to all the kirtans and classes on all 4 days and parking. Kids aged five or less can attend free of charge as long as they share a bed with one of their parents.
Registration is mandatory for every attendee. Currently we only have offsite accommodation located at a 15-min drive from the retreat center. Free shuttles will be running every hour between the retreat center and the offsite locations. By registering, you will receive 3 days of offsite accommodation, 9 meals of prasadam (sanctified food), access to all the kirtans and classes — all these at a subsidized fee of just $210 per person.
Last year, we ran out of all onsite and offsite spots. So, please register immediately to guarantee your spot for this wonderful opportunity to immerse yourself in the nectar of the holy names!
It was a wonderful opportunity to set aside time for hearing and chanting the Holy Name. And to reconnect with friends from far away and long ago.
Every day was like a festival . While participating in Keertan I experienced,I didn’t have to put much efforts from my side to absorb in Holy Names .Collective consciousness was quite powerful. There was no question of mind wandering away from Holy Names . It is like Bombay Train Platform. I heard in Bombay,during busy hours ,all you have to do is simply stand on platform , people will push and in minutes you are inside train . So attending Sadhu Sanga retreat felt like that. Just by being there one’s mind is taken to full absorption in Holy Names .
I am a new devotee and had never been to an event like this. My mind was completely blown. I have never experienced anything like it: such wonderful, kind, helpful people with amazing faith and devotion. The amazing atmosphere pervaded everything. Transcendental Krishna consciousness is totally real and achievable and Prabhupada gave us the process for achieving blissful association with Krishna. A house the whole world can live in.
My most important relationship is with Krishna in the form of the holy name. It was a rare privilege to chant with outstanding kirtaniyas in the association with so many devotees to place that deepest relationship in the center of my life for a three days. It was a powerful experience that has left me hankering for more.
