Format: The Gayatri Gathering will be held in an intimate retreat-style format limited to 72 participants.

The Gayatri Mantra is a prayer to the sun, and in this spirit we have created the Gayatri Gathering – a call to join in sacred circle in celebration of light – shining within us and throughout our ecstatic chant community.

During the Gayatri Gathering we immerse ourselves in chant sessions filled with mantra, sacred song and a deep celebration of the heart. In this healing environment, we bathe in a joyful, inspirational, and loving rejuvenation of the spirit.

This is the key to the Gayatri: it nourishes the soul, giving us the strength and inspiration to go forward into our lives with a deeper sense of awareness, more compassion, more humor, more love.

Our Gayatri sun will shine brightly and support us as we move through life’s challenges. We all know how easy it is to sometimes lose touch with our light of love, so the Gayatri Gathering is here for us all, to replenish, to re-charge, and to re-new our sacred connection with the Great Spirit – our true Buddha Nature.

“If ever there was a time to come together in sacred union, that time is now. Bring your voices, your open hearts, your laughter, your tears – All is Welcome Here!” – Deva & Miten
