Fall Retreat 2011 (Sankhya copy)

Hidden Lake Lodge

SRV’s Autumn Retreat, October 6th – October 9th
Sankhya of Kapila Revisited

The October retreat, to convene during the holy days around Navaratri, will give all SRV devotees and students a rare opportunity to center in on that earliest and most important element of India’s multifaceted philosophical perspective – the Sankhya Yoga of Lord Kapila.  Early on in SRV’s history a few of my students received these teachings, and they also appeared along the way, wrapped up so integrally in the darshanas of Yoga, Vedanta, and Buddhism.  Now we get the chance to revisit Sankhya and its scriptures, though many of them were lost over time.  The Tattva Samasa Sutras, the one authentic remaining Sankhya scripture, will be the main focus, and the profound teachings found therein. Teachings on the twin principles of Purusha and Prakriti will head the list, in conjunction to both their relationship and their distinctions, and several new charts will be presented for additional interest and elucidation.

Hidden Lake YurtLocation/Setting: Serenely situated in the Cascade hills, Hidden Lake Retreat center, with its tall fir trees, and woodsy gardens and pathways just inviting quiet, solitary reflection, will be site of this year’s Autumn Retreat.   Eagle Creek is only 45 minutes from Portland, Oregon.  Hidden Lake offers several kinds of accommodations and pricings from beautiful rooms to covered porches to camping.  The weather at this time of year is often some of the most beautiful.  Nights are cooler, days can be warm.  But it is also possible that we will have rain.  So please be prepared for a variety of possibilities.

Arrival: Thursday, October 6 after 3pm and by 6:00pm for dinner
