This year, we're offering a five-day Internship for Affiliates.
This is an ideal way for Affiliates to end the July Weeklong Retreat and build a spiritual household with fellow Affiliates. Affiliate interns stay in the retreat house with about 10 other participants, spending the mornings doing volunteer work at Ramagiri Ashram, and taking free time in the afternoons for group activities or personal retreat time.
The volunteer work is done in teams and includes work such as gardening, and working on the land. Please note that this is an active work program requiring up to 3 hours of physical work each day. If a physical work program isn’t right for you, as an alternative to this program you might want to find other ways to spend more time with us like coming to an additional retreat.
By the end of the program, you’ll have had the opportunity to:
- Create a satsang household based on the eight points. For example, you’ll be meditating together, cooking and sharing meals, organizing your own recreation, and planning your household schedule.
- Experience a balanced lifestyle at a slowed-down pace to help you absorb the weeklong retreat.
- Learn more about the BMCM.
- Participate in Ramagiri Ashram daily life.
