Peace Village Learning and Retreat Center

Weekend meditation retreats teaching simple techniques of contemplation, restoring inner peace.

Peace Village Learning and Retreat Center Some have expressed surprise at the complete shift in awareness that can take place in just one weekend, and many choose to return again and again. For some, it is the opportunity for solitude, for walks through the 300 acre property, and sunrise meditations. Others are seeking answers to questions about spiritual knowledge, spiritual power and the experience of meditation. But for all, to retreat is--before anything else--a unique meeting with the self on the path of purpose and meaning. 

Peace Village is a spiritual community of practicing yogis. Some live and work at Peace Village, while others volunteer for a weekend or longer. Each experiences, on a daily basis, the profound benefits that meditation and spiritual insight can have on one's life. They maintain the physical campus and -- most importantly -- build the atmosphere of safety, serenity, and simplicity.  The aim is to provide a place of refuge, renewal and spiritual education.     The Brahma Kumaris World Spiritual Organization (BKWSO) created Peace Village in 1999 to be a place where people of all backgrounds can come and explore their spirituality, Established in 1937, the BKWSO is now comprised of individuals of all ages and backgrounds who regularly attend classes at more than 8,500 meditation centers located in 110 countries. We teach a practical method of meditation that helps individuals understand their inner strengths and values. Acknowledging the challenges of rapid global change, we support the well being of individuals of all walks of life by promoting spiritual understanding, leadership with integrity, and elevated actions towards a better world.

Brahma Kumaris Raja Yoga is at the core of what we teach. It is an ancient spiritual discipline that engages the mind in a loving link with the Divine. It can be used to relax, refresh, and renew the spirit, and heart, leading to a deeper experience of peace and positivity.   • Study practical aspects of spirituality through classes and workshops • Discover new methods to handle life's challenges • Enhance or begin a meditation practice • Appreciate time spent in silence and solitude in beautiful surroundings • Enjoy the rejuvenating effects of a pure, serene and spiritual setting • with vegetarian meals. • Meet like minded people on a similar journey • Relax in comfortable rooms with private bath.
