You will learn how to maintain Nithya Anushtana - daily practice.

You will be staying and practicing with Parvathy Maa to bring back your daily sadhana.

 

This retreat is suitable especially if you are suffering from irregularity in your practice; it will encourage you to return to it and maintain it.

Together with Parvathy Maa, there will be yoga, meditation, singing and dancing. We will also have satsangs with Parvathy Maa where you can ask questions directly.

Sri Krishna Dhārana

4 - 8 January 2023
at Sanatan Siddhashram

Ishta Dhyāna is an immersive sadhana initiative, where participants will be guided to learn certain basic steps of worshipping one's Ishta Devata, i.e the deity with whom one intends to build a deeper connection.

 

As part of this initiative we will be holding a five day immersive sadhana retreat titled Sri Krishna Dhārana, wherein through the means of mantra japa, sankirtan (songs in praise of Sri Krishna) and reflective conversations, we enable meditation of the participants on Sri Krishna tattva. 

 

This will be lead by Parvathy Baul, Rajarshi Nandy and Ramachandra Roddam at Sanatan Siddhashram.

Women Baul Master Weekend Immersion

 

28 - 29 January 2023
at Sanatan Siddhashram & online

In this retreat we have opportunity to immerse ourselves in the wisdom of women Baul Sadhikas (practitioners). 

For centuries, women Sadhikas have been holding and nurturing the tradition. Yet, we often don't hear their voices.

As Parvathy Mā has shared, "I have heard my Guru Shri Sanatan Das Baul saying that though he was initiated by Sri Badalchand Goshai, it actually was Badalchand Goshai's Gurubon (Guru sister), Sri Bishakha Dashi, teaching Sanatan Baba all the practical lessons about Sadhana."

Baul women masters are often addressed as Mā / Guru Mā / Goshai Mā / Sadhonsongini / Sebadashi. They are great examples of devotion, unconditional love and acceptance.

 

Let us sit at their feet humbly and absorb their wisdom with great attention in Gopi Bhāv Darpan held at Sanatan Siddhashram.

It is a fully immersive retreat, with full-time sessions with Parvathy Maa and the other Baul Masters each day.

You will learn songs and their meaning, practice dance and movement, and other guided practices. There will also be satsang each evening.

Mā Durga Dhārana

 

10 - 14 March 2023
at Sanatan Siddhashram

Ishta Dhyāna is an immersive sadhana initiative, where participants will be guided to learn certain basic steps of worshipping one's Ishta Devata, i.e the deity with whom one intends to build a deeper connection.

Mā Durga Dhārana enables the participant to undertake basic sadhana of Mā Durga under the guidance of senior sadhaks. Though Dhārana is very practice oriented, it will allow ample scope for interaction with the senior sadhaks to understand various nuances of Sadhana.

Details of Sadhaks facilitating Sadhana: 

Sri Rajarshi Nandy

is an sadhaka whose path is associated with tantric upasana of The Divine Mother. He is also a author and columnist on several topics related to Indian religious and spiritual thought.

He has helped co-author a paper exploring the links between Tantra and Modern Neuroscience which was published in Neurology India.

He manages a popular Facebook page on Hindu spirituality named Adhyatmikta.

Sri Ramachandra Roddam

is an Sadhaka of the Divine Mother. He is an invited faculty who teaches on Indian Spirituality, Yoga and Sadhana.

He is the author of the book Devi Bhakti Tarangini, which is a devotional offering of English poems to the Supreme Goddess.

Currently he is rendering Seva at Sanatan Siddhashram, a traditional Gurukul for the ancient Baul tradition located in Birbhum district, West Bengal.

 

Bhāv Triveni

16. - 19. March 2023
at Sanatan Siddhashram & online

We will be immersing in the three different Bhakti traditions which invoke deep unconditional love for the Divine:

Baul (Bengal), Vaishnava Padavali (Bengal) and Abhang (Maharashtra)

 

All these traditions have something in common: in addition to Nama Sankirtana, they allow us to immerse ourselves through poetry, music and storytelling. What is most fascinating is the moment in each tradition, when the worship becomes a wave of movement of sound, breath and body. Here - one arrives at the true meaning of "Bhakti".

We will travel deep into these traditions through listening and learning. We will give ourselves another tool to experience total true surrender within, only to find our inner freedom.
