The Arjuna weekend Retreat at New Acropolis was a wonderful opportunity to experience ‘Philosophy in Action‘ !
Through practical sessions of reflection, exercises and group dialogues the participants explored themes, Identity, Inner Freedom and Self- expression. The binding thread that ran through the retreat was a shared search to understand more deeply the ‘Soul of India‘ in its deepest essence. All in all the retreat was a true meeting of fraternity!
As part of the experimental weekend retreat, volunteer activities were included for all participants, including a home visit for girls and young women from difficult backgrounds.
The program started with a play called ‘Mahabharata Express’, that presented the main teaching of the Bhagwad Gita, in a modern setting of a bus journey! Next, the children enjoyed simple music-exercises to practice rhythm and singing together. The final part involved the children joining the volunteers to prepare delicious snacks, concluding the session over delicious cupcakes and nutritious crunchy salad!
