Winter Retreat

Join us for a winter weekend of satsang with one of Amma's senior monastic disciples, Br. Dayamrita Chaitanya. Enjoy devotional singing, youth programs, meditation, yoga and beach walks.
This year, we are pleased to invite you Whidbey Island. Camp Casey Conference Center's location is one of its best assets. Situated on the Salish Sea and facing west toward the Olympic Mountains, Camp Casey offers a wealth of beachcombing, kite flying, field activities, and a scenic space for exploring.

Interested in sharing an offering at this year's event?
If you attended last year's retreat, then you know what a treat it can be to participate in the various offerings at these events. Once again, this year's retreat will feature a gong healing by Gargi. What a blessing!
Do you have an activity you would like to offer at this year's event? The planning committee is in the process of putting together the agenda for this February's winter retreat and is currently soliciting ideas from other devotees. If you are interested in facilitating an activity, please let Bhagavati know before December 31, 2018. Please email her at before the end of the year.
We are all looking forward to connecting with you on Whidbey Island in February!
Jai Ma!
Auction Donation Request
Namaste PNW Regional Satsangs,
The winter retreat is coming AND so is the annual regional action!
This year we are trying something new by featuring fewer items that are of a higher quality. Please contemplate bringing one high quality item and/or service donation to the winter retreat for this year's auction. Some examples: harmonium, vacation home weekend getaway, home items, massages, gift certificates for dinner, fancy and/or prasad alter items, etc... If each one of us contributes just one item, we will have all we need!
Much Love and gratitude to you from your auction committee.
For questions, please reach out to Visala Hohlbein by email at
And Just For Fun...
It has been quiet for a few weeks at the Maltby property while many of Amma's children joined Her in California and Michigan for Her fall programs. However, Yasas, featured below (can you spot him!?), did rally enough amazing sevites to create this beautiful wood pile! May all of you have a warm, safe and wonderful winter!
"The spirit of Christmas is sharing and caring. Let us not just be focused on our lives alone. Let us look around a little and see the needs of others as well. Even if you are able to help just one person, then you have made a difference. If my children can do this, that would be the real Christmas celebration."
- Amma
