2018 Retreats

Babaji speaks about self-care:


“At the start of each year we have an opportunity to revisit and reset our priorities to live with good health and happiness and meaningful engagement in society. At the ashram, we set a tone for the year by choosing a word to focus on.

Let the focus this year be "self-care". A firm commitment to our radiant physical, emotional and spiritual health requires letting go of some past fascinations that don't serve our higher aspirations. The time and energy we free up by doing this can be redirected to serve a renewed commitment to our health and well-being.

Only with a healthy body and mind can we engage in the world in a meaningful way. It is by giving the gift of self-care to ourselves that we truly begin to live in such a way that our life becomes a gift to our loved ones, our communities and our society.

Let us promise ourselves to live fully with awareness and fearlessness. My prayers and blessings are with you in the year ahead.”

– Baba Harihar Ramji (Babaji)
