7th Annual Sadhu Sanga Kirtan Retreat 2018

Welcome to Sadhu Sanga Kirtan Retreat 2018. To serve you better, we require that every attendee registers – including infants. Please join us for Sadhu Sanga Kirtan Retreat 2018 featuring ecstatic kirtans, inspiring classes and delicious prasadam in the amazing association of exalted devotees of Sri Sri Radha and Krishna in Boone, North Carolina, which is just a 2-hour scenic drive from Charlotte airport (CLT) or a 3-hour drive from Raliegh-Durham airport (RDU).

OFFSITE ACCOMMODATION
Due to unprecedented enthusiasm from devotees all over the country, all the 1000 beds in our onsite accommodation were sold out within the first 1 hour of opening our registration. So we have booked most of the hotels, lodges, cottages, cabins that are available nearby to accommodate another 1000 devotees.

These offsite accommodation places are at a 15-20 minute scenic drive from the retreat center and vary widely in amenities ranging from standard king/queen/double beds with private bath all the way to bunk beds with shared bathroom.

We’ll allocate rooms/beds based on the size of the registered group (e.g. four persons registering together will be given preference for a room with two queen beds, while individuals will be accommodated in bunk beds) and on a first-come first-served basis.  As we have negotiated discounted group rates due to bulk booking, we’re able to offer the entire retreat for an offsite registration fee of just $210 per person. This includes accommodation for 3 nights, 9 meals of prasadam (sanctified food), access to all the kirtans and classes on all 4 days and parking. Kids aged five or less can attend free of charge as long as they share a bed with one of their parents.

OFFSITE REGISTRATION
Registration is mandatory for every attendee. Currently we only have offsite accommodation located at a 15-min drive from the retreat center. By registering, you will receive 3 days of offsite accommodation, 9 meals of prasadam (sanctified food), access to all the kirtans and classes — all these at a subsidized fee of just $210 per person. Last year, we ran out of all onsite and offsite spots. So, please register immediately to guarantee your spot for this wonderful opportunity to immerse yourself in the nectar of the holy names!
