We will host SRF monastics Brother Ritananda and Brother Nikhilananda for this year’s Seabeck Retreat June 8-10. Please visit the Seabeck Retreat menu on our Center’s website for further information and to register online.  There are also printed registration forms in the Social Room for those who are unable to register online.  We ask that registrations be submitted by May 31.

On Saturday evening during the Seabeck Retreat, the monastics will give a satsanga (answers to spiritual questions).  They have requested that we provide our questions ahead of time if possible. If you have spiritual questions that may be beneficial to the group, please submit them to the box in the social room, or through the Contact Us form on our Center’s website.

Preceding the Seabeck Retreat, the monastics will lead the Thursday Inspirational Service on June 7 at 7:30 pm here at the Center.  Prior to the Inspirational Service, Bro. Nikhilananda will conduct a Memorial Service at 6:30 pm for Ron Reedy, husband of our member Bridget Reedy.  Ron passed away January 20 this year. All are invited to attend the memorial service and send our united love and friendship to Ron.

For those attending this year’s SRF Convocation, all are welcome to attend the annual Center Representatives’ Conference (CRC) on Thursday, August 9 from 12:30 – 2:00 pm in the California Ballroom. The conference will provide an opportunity to become more familiar with our Guru’s spiritual ideals for Self-Realization Fellowship centers and meditation groups. No advanced registration is required this year, and donations can be made at the event or in the Center Department room at Convocation.
