Inspiration Retreat', which is based on the five most powerful processes of
bhakti-yoga: chanting the Holy Names, hearing Srimad Bhagavatam, associating
with devotees, worshiping the Deity, and living in a holy place like
Mathura. This retreat will be held in New Vrajamandala, Spain, on 15th, 16th
and 17th August, 2010.

that besides exploring the philosophical truths of Krishna consciousness, we
will immediately apply what we learn through practical exercises. Thus we

attends it will have deep Krishna conscious experiences that will stay with
them for a long time.

* learning how to make a tangible and lasting connection with the Lord

bhajan and kirtan.

* highly experiential classes, aiming at providing all participants
with breakthrough experiences and a deep transformation at all levels.
