Visit Yogaville

April 26, 2019 - April 27, 2019

Washington County Interfaith Coalition invites you to visit the first interfaith shrine & museum April 26th -27th, 2019.

Yogaville was founded by Sri Swami Satchidananda, an esteemed spiritual leader whose message of peace has been heard around the globe. Honored with the Albert Schweitzer Humanitarian Award, Sri Gurudev dedicated his life to the cause of peace—both individual and universal—and to religious harmony among all people. The LOTUS (Light Of Truth Universal Shrine-see picture below) is perhaps the crowning glory of Swami Satchidananda’s interfaith work– an interfaith shrine and museum built in Yogaville, VA in 1986. LOTUS celebrates the unity behind the diversity of the world religions. Open to people of all faiths to meditate and pray, this shrine uses the universal symbol of light as the symbol of the Divine. It is the first shrine ever built to house altars for every major faith and also faiths less well-known and contains many artifacts and information on them.
Leave 4/26 8 a.m. carpool to Yogaville, VA.

Arrive in time for lunch of farm fresh food at the cafeteria, then spend the afternoon exploring the many altars of faith in the LOTUS and on the grounds, stopping to reflect, meditate, pray or just sit and enjoy.  Drive to 600 acre horse farm for dinner and community building and overnight stay.  Leave 4/27 a.m. back to Hagerstown.

COST- $85/includes meals. Spaces limited-make check payable to Washington Co. Interfaith Coalition & mail to Sandy Boyer, 10811 Bower Ave, Williamsport MD 21795.
