Spiritual Retreat in Vancouver, Canada
On his first stop outside Europe in this year's World Peace Tour, Vishwaguruji landed in Vancouver, Canada, on 6 September - eagerly awaited and warmly welcomed by the Canadian bhaktas. For the topic in his first evening lecture at the Vancouver Yoga in Daily Life Center, Vishwaguruji spoke about "Yoga - Awakening the Fire Within".
The satsang in Vancouver was followed by a 5-day Spiritual Retreat. Bhaktas from Vancouver and North America travelled to Xenia Retreat Center, a 38-acre sanctuary on Bowen Island near Vancouver, British Columbia, to enjoy satsangs and lectures on "Chakras, Kundalini and the Manipur Chakra".
Bowen Island is an idyllic destination in the middle of Howe Sound, just a 20-minute ferry ride from Horseshoe Bay in West Vancouver. Quiet and alluring, a short distance from Vancouver, it’s a welcome escape from the stresses of city life.
Admist tall trees, a meadow with horses, and surrounded by pure air, Vishwaguruji illuminated the hearts of all present with the blessings of Sri Alakhpuriji Siddha Peeth Parampara.
Bhaktas and Yoga in Daily Life students of all ages and cultures, participated in a daily program of prayer, meditation, asanas, pranayam, and satsang, and felt uplifted by the eternal wisdom of Sat Sanatan Dharma.
