No matter where you go, always do your duty as you see it, and know that I will be there inside you, guiding you every step of the way. In the years to come, you will experience me in many different manifestations of my form. You are my own, dearer than dear to me. I will protect you as the eyelids protect the eyes.

Why a retreat?

Following the period of limited contact and activity during COVID with much of our programs being conducted online, a spiritual retreat seems a perfect way to reconnect with our fellow devotees throughout Australia and reflect on and strengthen our connection with our beloved Sai. This retreat is for all ages and all wings of the SSSIO in Australia and aims to nourish our spiritual life through fun and loving togetherness.

The theme of the retreat is “Omnipresent and Indwelling Sai” a reminder of His promise that He is in us, around us, behind us, above us, and besides us and guiding us throughout the journey of our life.

We trust that the retreat will lead us to a greater awareness of His eternal presence within us in our inner-most Heart and about us in all the myriad different forms in this creation by experiencing the all-pervading feeling of Oneness with all.

The weekend will have devotional programs enabling participants to connect with their inner being, inspiring talks, enlightening workshops, rejuvenating games, and engaging young adults and children’s programs. Leading up to the retreat there is an optional ‘sadhana’ plan available for participants. To participate in the sadhana plan please visit this link: Feel free to contact the National Retreat 2022 Sadhana Plan Team if you have any questions ➡️

Perhaps the greatest outcome of any retreat is to come away feeling the great waves of love and inspiration that the Satsang and fellowship enjoyed over the period leads to.
