Five Day Meditation Retreats
Swami Chetanananda usually offers two five-day spiritual practice retreats in Portland each year, one in late July and the other between Christmas and New Year's. In 2013, an additional retreat was held to commemorate the 40th anniversary of Swami Rudrananda's mahasamadhi.
The 5 day retreat programs provide an opportunity for focused practice, spending time with our extended community, deepening our understanding through daily satsang with Swamiji, and helping to maintain our facility and operations. Here is a sample retreat schedule.
The typical retreat program includes morning and evening meditation with Swamiji, talks by Swamiji each morning, and a darshan with Swamiji. In addition, there are hatha yoga and qigong classes and seva projects. Three meals a day are included. Accommodations are available at the Movement Center, but the number of rooms available is limited.
