Kiirtana Retreat at Ananda Kanan, August 8 – 14, 2021

Summer is now at hand, and we would like to use the opportunity to meet with you, enjoy the beautiful natural environment at Ananda Kanan, and enjoy singing Kiirtana and doing meditation together.  

The Ananda Marga online programs have enabled us to enjoy Satsaunga and many interesting classes, Katha Kiirtana, RAWA Programs, etc., from our homes. The online programs have also helped connecting talents and speakers that would otherwise have been difficult to bring together in one program. We have learned a lot from those programs and will probably continue to utilize this platform for our programs. However, nothing compares to enjoying Kiirtana and nature together in an in-person retreat.

Ananda Kanan is waiting for you to enjoy a Kiirtana Retreat this summer! We want to bring maximum positive energy and attract positive microvita by singing Akhanda Kiirtana every day for seven days at Ananda Kanan. The Kiirtan Retreat will combine lots of Kiirtana, plenty of outdoor activities, classes, cooking, and sharing meals together.

Program Highlights:

  • Daily Akhanda Kiirtana
  • Outing to the River
  • Walking the Ananda Kanan Trails 
  • Classes and Workshops
  • Cooking and sharing meals together
  • RAWA Cultural Evenings
  • Prabhata Samgiita Class
  • Daily Yoga Classes
