Dear Brothers & Sisters,
Loving Sai Ram to everyone
Wishing you a holy Guru Purnima day.
With the Divine Blessings of Bhagawan Sri Sathya Sai Baba, it gives me immense pleasure to announce details of our National Sai Retreat 2012. This much anticipated event promises to be a spiritually uplifting and thrilling experience, given the natural beauty of its location and the high calibre of the Guest Speakers attending.
Llandudno, the picturesque coastal town in North Wales facing the Irish Sea, will be the location for our Retreat from the evening of Friday 17th to Sunday 19th August 2012. Christened as ‘Divine Light’, the Retreat will be in line with the theme of the year: ‘Year of Illumination’.
We are delighted and blessed to have with us Prof Anilkumar Kamaraju from Prasanthi Nilayam as our Chief Guest. Professor Anil Kumar requires no introduction for the majority of our devotees in the UK, for he is best known as Swami’s personal translator. He will indeed spread the Divine Light by sharing his innumerable personal experiences with our Divine Master.
Since the physical departure of Bhagawan, it has been our collective experience as devotees and office bearers in the UK that such events have enabled us to gather in unity and love as one large Sai family, and strengthen our faith and resolve in the Divine Message and Mission of Love of our dearest Bhagawan. Listening to inspirational speakers (Sravanam), and recollecting His Glory (Mananam) at these events helps maintain our focus upon Him (Nidhidhyaasanam), and thereby feel spiritually rejuvenated and recharged. This is the primary objective of this Retreat.
The programme will consist of talks, interactive workshops, music, concerts, prayers, meditation and walks on the beach.
Accommodation (shared) will be provided at the Regency Royal Hotel located at the seafront, with Retreat proceedings taking place at the prestigious Cymru Conference Centre, located close by which also faces the sea.
The venue will accommodate 200 Residential Delegates with additional 200 Day Delegates (non-residential). Costs for Residential Delegates is 80 (to cover two nights accommodation, venue and meals). Costs for Day Delegates is 15 Per Day (to cover costs for venue and meals). Children will be on half board (Under 12). More details of payment will be available on registration.
Llandudno has good motorway links and has direct train links from major cities such as London, Birmingham, Manchester and others.
Registration will commence online from Thursday the 5th of July. Please visit the web link below and register at the earliest -
We look forward to seeing you during the weekend of the National Retreat.
