Fall Retreat 2013

kalidurgaKali Durga Navaratri Retreat

October 10 – 14th, 2013 <> Windwood, near Stevenson, WA
In celebration of SRV’s 20th Anniversary 

Closing my eyes, I perceive the Wisdom Mother dancing in the lotus of my heart.  She wears a garland of skulls, emblem of Her Freedom from Birth and death.  Gazing upon Her radiant Nakedness, Mundane concepts and conventions vanish

For Babaji’s retreat on Mother Kali, the tradition continues with esoteric Tantric teachings, the presentation of Kali Sangeet (bhajans/songs to Divine Mother), and fresh wisdom charts for viewing.  Perfect for initiates and lovers of Mother Reality, transformation in Kali’s own atmosphere is the result.

Mother dwells at the center of my being, forever delightfully at play.  Whatever conditions of consciousness arise, I hear the music of Her Holy Names – Om Tara, Om Durga, Om Kali.

This is SRV’s second retreat to take place on the peaceful properties of Windwood Waters along the Columbia Gorge.  The main lodge where classes will be held is situated in the forest above the Wind River.   The lodge has been remodeled from its earlier homestead days — natural wood beams and columns, plentiful windows, and the sunken fireplace area all make for a unique, rustic and comfortable setting – a perfect forest ashram for our four days of rare and sacred teachings in the beautiful wooded acres of tall Douglas firs and Evergreens.
