Escape to the heart of rural Mississippi and join us for a unique glamping retreat at The Lodge at Sweetwater Studios, just a two-hour drive from the vibrant city of New Orleans. Surrounded by the enchanting beauty of towering trees and endless skies, this retreat is a harmonious blend of self-discovery and the delicate balance between effort and surrender.

This is an intimate retreat and space is very limited.

Retreat Highlights:

🧘 Mindful Exploration: Experience, meditation, yoga asana, and engaging talks centered on the core principles of Kriya Yoga: cultivating passion and discipline for leading a skillful and joyful life, achieving self-realization through study to transcend the ego, and surrendering one’s efforts to discover blissful alignment with a higher purpose.

🌿 Nature’s Embrace: Sweetwater’s picturesque setting offers the perfect backdrop for your journey. Connect with the earth, find serenity beneath the open sky, and allow nature to nurture your soul.

🌅 Free Time for Self-Care: Embrace the freedom to relax, read, stroll through nature’s wonders, and bask in solitude during your free time. This retreat is your opportunity to reset and rejuvenate at your own pace.

🤫 Noble Silence: After a warm welcome and orientation on Friday evening, we’ll observe noble silence until Sunday morning. This silence allows for deeper self-reflection and enhances the retreat’s transformative power.
