Retreat Overview A TWO-DAY RETREAT
The Zero Point:
A New Kind of Human Consciousness
In actuality, the calamity everyone fears has already
The "old order" is already dead.
Nevertheless, this need not be the darkest moment in
human history. On the contrary, this moment in historical
time could (and, indeed, must) be the historic moment
in which the Intrinsic Pattern of Reality Itself is established
as the universal basis for human life.
these challenging times, Adi Da Samraj, spiritual teacher, philosopher
and artist, has given us profound wisdom and action-tools that
inspire and urge us to take responsibility —
all seven billion of us,
for the earth and all of humanity—
as a single system. This
wisdom and these action-tools, described in Adi Da's book Not-Two
Is Peace, will be presented and deeply explored during
this two-day retreat.
Join us for this special and timely event and take part in
a life-transforming consideration that speaks to the place in
us far beyond the mind. Carolyn Lee and Leo Burke, from the
organization, have been immersed for many years in the Revelations
of The World-Friend, Adi Da, as expressed in His book, Not-Two
Is Peace. Both are
excellent presenters and facilitators. They will provide an
in-depth basis for "Zero-Point Education", which is
urgently needed now in this world.
This retreat will celebrate Bhagavan Adi Da Samraj's Unique
"Avataric" Appearance and His Divine Calling to all
of humankind to embrace Prior Unity as the Intrinsic
Power to righten conditions in the world.
Tangibly feel and receive Adi Da’s Spiritual Presence and Blessing-Transmission
as it is powerfully communicated in many ways:
Sacred Sightings of Adi Da — Rare
videos of Adi Da granting His Silent Spiritual Blessing
to all and speaking about the True Condition of all beings,
which is Prior Unity, Perfect Freedom, and Divine Happiness.

Da's Blessing in Europe. The Danda is a former monastery —
a quiet place, and a place where Adi Da twice resided. It houses
The Adi Da Museum of Art, the largest

Testimonials from participants in recent retreats at the European
All kind of things happened to me and one in particular:
I am completely happy.
I felt so much resistance during this weekend. But suddenly,
as if struck by lightning, it all became completely clear.
This is SO incredible, so much joy and relaxation.
It's not that nothing matters to me anymore, but I feel
relieved of this fear, of a certain pressure. I don't have
to search for anything, I can just completely surrender
and BE. . . .
[I feel] a fiery sensation, from deep within me, a knowing,
a realization. I can contact it and feel I can surrender into
this knowing I can't describe how this feels, the relaxation
— it's indescribable.
It's amazing how this process occurs and how I feel carried
in it by Adi Da (and I can really feel this).
Beloved Adi Da,
I’m very thankful for the retreat in the Danda. It is a
very special place, has Big Energy and has touched my heart
deeply. I would like to say thank You for coming and staying
here, for allowing me to see and feel all the devotees that
You Love. I will go with strong energy and love and I try
ever and ever to give it back to You.
