Everybody wants to be happy, but how do you actually "do" happiness? Please join us to find out more about true happiness in the free two day retreats that we offer in many locations around the world.
The retreats are based on, and inspired by, the Wisdom of Adi Da Samraj. They include guided meditations, yoga lessons, video presentations, group considerations, personal stories, contemplative walks, and delicious vegetarian meals.
The retreats are hosted by a team of experienced and long time practitioners of Avatar Adi Da’s Teachings who guide the retreat program in an inspiring fashion.
The complete weekend program (including workbook and materials) is offered for free. You only pay a contribution for food, drinks and your possible lodging during the weekend. Costs can differ depending on the location.

Come on retreat at the Mountain Of Attention! Retreat at the Mountain Of Attention is a unique opportunity to drop out of one's regular life and obligations, and devote a period of time exclusively to reinvigorating and intensifying one's practice of the Way of Adidam. And there is no better place to go on retreat than one of the Empowered Sanctuaries of Adidam, that are everywhere filled with Adi Da's Blessing-Power.

In this video, longtime devotee and Adidam educator, Carolyn Lee, introduces "The Zero Point", a retreat taking place at the European Danda, April 28 - 30, 2017.
Read or watch the daily news these days and you will find it filled with identity politics and the fear and anxiety that such politics engenders. Identity politics is a major threat to the world. In this retreat, we explore the root of identity politics: the presumption of difference and separateness. We also study and consider Adi Da's Wisdom on understanding, un-learning, and transcending the illusion of separateness and the act of separation, and Realizing Prior Unity, Non-Separateness, and unlimited relatedness to everything and everyone.
The "Zero Point" is the place where we can drop all the limited and superficial points of view, and find the profound depth of Reality Itself. This has the potential for initiating a Reality-informed and Reality-transformed personal process and a collective activism in the contemporary world.
A report in June, 2016 on the state of Naitauba, three months after the devastating destruction wrought by Cyclone Winston on February 20, 2016.
Interviews with Michiel Vos (Samrajya Administrator), Grace Evans (retreatant from California), Carol Smith (resident), Susie Bagshaw (Taveuni Support and Fijian Advocacy), Naamleela Free Jones (daughter of Adi Da Samraj), Joy Harland (resident), Andrew Savio (retreatant from Melbourne, Australia), Nicholas Wagner (public guest from Cape Town, South Africa), Da-vid Forsythe (resident), Ruchiradama Nadikanta (Ruchira Sannyasin Order), Jeff Hughes (retreatant from Taveuni, Fiji), and Ryan Bass (retreatant from Cape Town, South Africa).
While much has been done to restore Naitauba since the damage of Cyclone Winston (some of it reported in this video), much more recovery and restoration work and work aimed at minimizing the damage from future cyclones is still needed. You can find out more here.

A brief glimpse of the October, 2014 Adidam Australia retreat at Gunnabah, Northern New South Wales, hosted by longtime devotee, James Steinberg, and focused on the theme, "The Ancient Walk-About Way", and taking place over three days.
Sacred Camel Gardens Director Stuart Camps writes: "With a great love for nature and all non-humans, Adi Da has a particular fondness for camels. We don't train the camels with conventional methods. Instead, we build relationships with them, similar to the relationships they build with each other. We also hold retreats and seminars for others to visit and experience being around such friendly camels up close. This video is a simple celebration of Adi Da's wish for these camels to become a major aspect of the sacred culture developing around His Spiritual Presence."
Adi Da: "I have always envisioned The Mountain Of Attention Sanctuary being characterized by camels. I want to have the camels be a major aspect of The Mountain Of Attention Sanctuary, one of its special characteristics. I want camels pervading the Sanctuary."
"In November 2010, a group of musicians traveled to the sacred hermitage island of Adi Da Samrajashram (Naitauba, Fiji) for spiritual retreat. We played daily at many of the holy sites on the island. We particularly fell into a blissful mood when playing on the veranda of our Guru's house."
"There, in the open air, with fresh breezes blowing, gentle waves washing, and birds chirping, we fell into deep devotion as we played. The music on this recording was spontaneously created on these occasions." —John Wubbenhorst

Every year in late October and early November, devotees, friends, and supporters of Adi Da Samraj gather to enjoy an extended weekend of Celebration and Spiritual Retreat focused on the Life, Teachings, and Avataric Work of Adi Da Samraj. The occasion is the birthday anniversary of Adi Da, during which we joyously acknowledge that this Supremely Realized Spiritual Master has appeared in the world to Awaken all beings to Radiant Love, Perfect Freedom, and Indestructible Light. This year’s Celebration is also based on the new book, The Gift Of Truth Itself, and like all Adidam Events, is founded on the acknowledgment that Adi Da Samraj uniquely bestows the ultimate Gift of Divine Truth or “Reality Itself” to the human heart.
We invite you to participate in a profound transformation at the depth of life and consciousness — a transformation made possible by the Divine Appearance and Self-Revelation of Adi Da Samraj. Come and experience His Blessing-Transmission, His Avataric Teachings, and His Divine Image-Art. Feel and receive Adi Da’s Spiritual Presence, which is powerfully communicated via Sacred Sightings of Him (recorded during His physical Lifetime). Enjoy the live Sacred Offerings of gifted devotee musicians who serve the process of retreat with keen sensitivity and feeling.
