Retreat with Center Residents, Gita Pathshala Co-ordinators and Right Hands of Centres - 9-16 October, Shantivan

28 May 2018


Dear Centre Co-ordinators,




Om shanti. The RCs are inviting all Centre Residents, Gita Pathshala coordinators and Right hands of Centres to a retreat in Shantivan with the theme of RIGHT HAND INSTRUMENTS FOR BABA.


The RCs felt that just as the NCs and CCs have a special annual retreat, that we should have a special retreat for all those living in centres, those coordinating Gita Pathshalas or Class Locations and those Brothers and Sisters that are very involved in service (and any Centre Coordinator who cannot attend the NC/CC Retreat next February 2019).


We want the retreat to fulfil your needs, so, even if you are not coming to the retreat, but you fit in the above criteria, please fill the survey you will find on the website https://goo.gl/forms/Hqw9LpfKy3W4li3E2


Many of the seniors will be present to give quality time to create an atmosphere of sustenance and learning.


This is just a diary note and as soon as we have a registration link we will send another message.


Please forward this information to all the residents of your centre, the Gita Pathshala's in connection with you and those who are your right hands in service. The Right Hands are those souls who do not live at the centre or Gita Pathshala but are there daily giving full and regular support to the centre activities.


In Baba’s yaad,

22nd Peace of Mind, Mount Abu Meditation Experience, October 1-8, 2018

5 March 2018


Dear Centre Coordinators,

It is with great pleasure and enthusiasm that we inform you of the dates for the 2018 Peace of Mind, Mount Abu Meditation Experience.

The program title was inspired by one of Mama’s Murlis when she spoke the words ‘Peace of Mind’ in English. For over 20 years, the program inspired by Mama and Dadi Prakashmaniji, has served to open the hearts and minds of thousands of friends from around the world by exposing them to the ‘heart’ of the Yagya.

The Peace of Mind program is coordinated by a group of dedicated BKs from several countries. This very successful service program continues to have the blessing of Dadi Janki and all Seniors.

The Peace of Mind program includes an increased focus on:

-  the meditation experience with new experiential sessions

-  ways to sustain effective spiritual practices in everyday life after guests return home

-  active engagement of companions as mentors and friends during the retreat

-  a visit to the Solar One thermal power facility at Shantivan during the program for those interested.

Peace of Mind is designed for people who would like to study a full program of Baba’s knowledge and experience the depths of meditation in the atmosphere of Madhuban, including:

-  Professionals and Community Leaders who have an interest or are genuinely engaged in some spiritual endeavour, and

-  Family and Friends who are connected with the Brahma Kumaris and/or are likely to appreciate our philosophy and practices.

The program is not for students or contact souls who currently attend the centre on a regular basis, or murli students who do not otherwise qualify to go to Madhuban. It is also not open to residents of India.

Participation is by invitation only. Madhuban do their very best to ensure that we can offer comfortable accommodation and the best possible learning environment.  This is why the numbers are limited.  If you would like to invite a guest, please first contact your NC or RC. 


Please ensure your guest has a companion who is willing to actively engage in their care and learning during the retreat. Ensure that your guests arrive on October 1 and depart on October 8.

Please note the new website www.peaceofmindretreat.org to send to potential guests.

In Baba’s yaad,

The Peace of Mind Co-ordinating Team

Invitation to the Spirit of Care Retreat 7-9 March 2018, Gyan Sarovar, "Healing the Self - Becoming Whole Again"

26 February 2018


Om Shanti. 


We are delighted to share with you details of the seventh Spirit of Care Retreat to be held in Gyan Sarovar.  This is a warm and open invitation to each member of our Brahmin Family.


We believe the Confluence Age is the Age of Healing; a time when Baba helps and guides us back to the original self. This spiritual journey is one of healing the soul.  We are learning to rediscover and reconnect to our unique greatness and become whole again.  When we have restored ourselves, we can then assist Baba to heal humanity and nature. 


Baba says he is the ‘Surgeon’ … so if we let him, and work with him, he becomes our greatest Healer. We are always learning how to use Gyan, Yoga and Baba’s energy to return to our true nature, that of the eternal self, so we too can become ‘healers’.


We have learnt so many things but still need to experience a sense of wholeness, and to let go of that which no longer sustains us.  So, how can learn to reconnect and live with, the sense of deep inner power and peace that comes from a feeling of being complete?


This 3-day retreat invites you to explore how you can heal unresolved parts of the self and feel deeply connected to your authentic and original self. We will also investigate how to mend relationships with others: including those you live with, are close to and with whom you share service. Mother-Nature and all the souls of this world will be uplifted through this transformation.

Madhuban forms and travel details are to be submitted in the usual way, via the local centres.


If you do not speak English fluently, please check with your national coordination teams that there will be someone in Madhuban who can translate for you during the retreat. If you have any questions please contact valerianebernard@gmail.com. 


Spirit of Care Retreat March 2018:

6 March          4 - 5:30 pm:  Registrations 

7 March          Starts at 4.00 pm:  Healing the self

8 March          Starts 9.30 am:  Healing Relationships – How God comes to heal us

9 March          Up to 9.30 pm:   Healing the World
