Not scheduled at this time.

with Dhyan Garcia-Davis and Shyama Garcia Davis

Take Your Relationship to a Higher Level

Relationships play a key role on your spiritual journey. With your partner, you can learn to expand your heart’s natural love and feel connected to your own divine reality within. The more consciously you draw on this inner divine presence, the greater the harmony, connection, and joy you will experience with your partner, and in all life.

"Marriage should not be approached as a beautiful, but motionless, painting. Rather, it should be viewed as an opportunity for ever-further growth and development. Couples should seek fresh ways every day to express their love for one another, and to bring out the best in each other, and in themselves."  —from Self Expansion Through Marriage, by Swami Kriyananda

Self Expansion Through Marriage Book
You will receive, as part of your weekend program, the book: Self Expansion Through Marriage, by Swami Kriyananda

Retreat Leaders 
Dhyan and Shyama are ideally suited to lead this retreat. They are both Ananda teachers who radiate loving kindness and joy. Happily married, they have shared their enthusiasm for meditation and the spiritual life with people from around the world. With a playful and engaging spirit, they assist couples in experiencing a depth of love that goes beyond the ordinary.


A common comment made by guests after completing this program is that they wished it were longer. We recommend that you stay on an extra day as Personal Retreat guests to further absorb your experience and spend another great day with your partner.

With introspection exercises, discussion, guided visualizations and meditations, you will begin to change from the inside out. Guided exercises will inspire you, and you'll gain tools to use regularly at home for personal transformation.

As has often been said, “If you want to change the world, first change yourself!”
