Italy: Pilgrimage to Assisi & Integral Yoga European Reunion 2011

| 03-12, 2011

Perugia – Assisi, Umbria | 27 May to 31 May, 2011

Reverend Padma Priya will be guiding the 5 days retreat “In The Footsteps Of The Saints– A Heart Of Living Yoga Retreat in Ananda Ashram near Assisi. It will be followed by the Integral Yoga Euro Reunion, near to Genoa.

Participants will be staying at the beautiful Ananda Ashram near Assisi which was founded by Paramahansa Yogananda and visiting the places where St. Francis and St. Clare lived and meditated, and also where Sri Gurudev Satchidananda experienced transformation … so you will see why the retreat has been called “Following in the Footsteps of the Saints”.

As guests staying in the peaceful Ashram of Paramahansa Yogananda in Perugia, near Assisi in Italy, participants will be following their own retreat programme led by Rev. Padma Priya, with early morning meditation followed by Integral Hatha Yoga from the heart and a silent evening meditation.

The retreat includes visits to the holy places of St. Francis and St. Clare and the place of transformation for our own beloved Sri Gurudev Satchidananda.

The accommodation is in twin rooms with ensuite bathrooms and delicious vegetarian meals are provided. Visits to holy places have kindly been organised for us by Ananda Ashram and transport there and back by minibus. There will also be ample free time if you want to explore the area.
