Retreat Overview

We are delighted to invite you to our Adidam Australia Retreat, a live-in weekend retreat in the beautiful mountains just outside Healesville in Victoria.

Take this opportunity to explore further the Spiritual Wisdom of Adi Da Samraj, or simply come and Bathe in His "Bright" Divine Light.

There will also be plenty of time for chanting, meditation, Sacred Sightings of Adi Da from our video archives, listening to and study of His Divine Words of instruction, and breath and energy practices.

In order to make fullest use of this weekend, previous attendance at an introductory evening or course is recommended.

This retreat is the perfect occasion for deepening your relationship to the Divine!

Retreat Location: Maitripa Centre

The retreat will be held at the Maitripa Centre in the heart of the beautiful Upper Yarra Valley. The Centre's 53 acres of forest and gardens are an ideal venue for contemplative retreats. The grounds are home to wombats, wallabies, deer, and beautiful red and green king parrots.

Maitripa Centre is an hour and a quarter easy drive from Melbourne CBD.
