Mediterranean Retreat with Krishna Das

Retreat @ Zen Rocks
From 1150€

Mediterranean Retreat with Krishna Das

We’re getting ready for another magical retreat with Krishna Das in 2024, where the light and memory of Maharaja will uplift us during the THRIVE Festival @ Zen Rocks. Let’s  meet again to consider how spiritual practice may translate in our daily life and inform our action every step, every breath of the way.

Our gathering with Krishna Das and friends, is a celebratory reunion.  In the circle of community with KD’s powerful personal stories and heart opening Kirtan, surging waves of bliss will uplift all, breaking through the barriers of individual existence, opening up realms of a more cohesive united world.

Join our satsang and enjoy:

  • Uplifting, heart opening Kirtans led by Krishna Das and his musicians.
  • Yoga asana practice sessions with a choice of restorative/meditate and dynamic practice.
  • Morning talks by KD where an interviewer and the participants get to answer questions regarding themes of interbeing and the connection of:   Spirituality, Activism, and Sustainability.
  • Delectable, vegetarian/vegan meals in a festive and communal atmosphere at the Café.
  • Free time to enjoy the fabulous Mediterranean Sea, the many interesting paths, trails, beaches and sights of the Mani peninsula, and the area around Kalamata.
  • Or relax, chill in the relaxing beauty of our Zen Rocks pool ☺.
  • Friendship, Community, Healing, Support, Transformation.

Meet your Teachers

Krishna Das

Few figures in modern spirituality, particularly in the West, have impacted the hearts and minds of contemporary seekers as Krishna Das has. A devotee of the North Indian Saint, Neem Karoli Baba (Maharajji), Krishna Das has played an enormous role in popularizing the traditional practice of kirtan in the West, taking the call-and-response chanting out of yoga centers and temples and into concert halls, becoming a worldwide icon and the best-selling western chant artist of all time. In a career spanning more than two decades, KD has released 16 acclaimed full-length albums, his music serving as an easily approachable gateway to the devotional traditions of the East.

Along the way, he has evolved into an accessible if somewhat reluctant teacher, and a spiritual friend to many. He travels the world sharing his kirtan practice and stories of his life on the Path, of Maharajiji, and advocates for bringing regular spiritual practice into our lives through retreats and workshops. During COVID times he has chanted online every week for the worldwide satsang.

Arjun Bruggeman

Arjun Bruggeman, world percussionist, drummer, composer and session recording artist, is highly acclaimed for his unique hybrid of East-meets-West rhythms.

At the age of 9 Arjun started playing guitar, bass and drums. By the age of 14 he embarked on a touring career playing drums with punk rock bands. His interest in early progressive, metal and jazz rhythms led him into a creative journey and later found himself enthralled by world percussion. Simultaneously, Arjun practiced many forms of Eastern spirituality. Through these explorations he merged the inner quest with the exterior expressions of sound and found himself supporting spoken word with Coleman Barks and David Darling.

Arjun recalls, “I wanted to go deeper. I wanted to support something that was bigger than me.” This profound experience led Arjun to meet Krishna Das and a connection with Neem Karoli Baba.
