This year our Path of Bliss Summer Retreat will focus on

Spiritual Activism: Sadhana and Socio-Economic Transformation

 Spiritual sadhana (meditation) is the path of realizing the unity of Self, the Supreme, and the Creation. 

It is about elevating ourselves and transforming the universe.

In these turbulent times, spirituality and human dignity are being threatened by growing social and economic injustices which cause tremendous suffering, breed disunity and inequalities, and undermine the foundation of society.

At this coming Summer Sectorial Retreat in Kansas City, Missouri we will explore spiritual activism through the lens of our ideology—Tantra, Neohumanism, and PROUT—which empowers us to help bring about systemic changes in the spiritual, social, and economic spheres.

It will be an opportunity to learn, to share, to debate, to engage, and to strengthen our individual and collective spiritual force, from our home to our communities, throughout the nation, the sector and across the globe.

--The Summer Bliss Organizing Committee
