Sam Bhavan Retreat CenterThis seven-day healing intensive program explores both Vedic Astrology and Ayurveda, helping the student cross-reference and use both disciplines together for healing and counseling purposes.

Because the program is integrated with daily yoga and meditation practices, participants will experience the richness of a yogic lifestyle and ayurvedic prepared meals, combined with profound knowledge of the Vedic sciences.
The Ayurvedic Astrology Healing Intensive will be held at the beautiful Sam Bhavan Kauai Retreat from May 24th through May 31st. Beginning and Intermediate / Advanced Learning Tracks will be offered.
We are pleased to announce that Dr. Tanmay Goswami, an ayurvedic doctor and jyotishi from Kerala, India will be joining the retreat faculty.

Sam Bhavan Praise
By Charlotte Benson, ACVA Executive Director

Sam Bhavan Retreat CenterWell, we went there, stepping into the unknown to check out your brand new retreat center prior to the Kauai retreat in May 09 and in a word Fantastic!

Your ACVA advance team found ourselves delighted and extremely impressed by what we experienced at the Sam Bhavan Retreat Center on the cosmic island of Kauai in February.

Everyone could feel it. -- the land, the people, and the building itself are just suffused with a sort of magical energy.
First of all, the vast Sam Bhavan estate grounds are surrounded by tropical jungle and bamboo forest. A long driveway lined with 150-year-old Cook Island pines leads to a most amazing modern/ancient structure.
We entered through an antique doorway into the most surprising open courtyard, enclosed on all sides by enormous rooms with fabulous teak and stone floors, and filled with antique Indian furniture. The upper floor consists of nine bedrooms, with the heavenly marble baths, and gorgeous, comfortable preserved antique furnishings. A breeze flows through the open courtyard, distributing the cleanest, oxygen and prana-imbued air to every room in Sam Bhavan. All hotels should have this kind of atmosphere!

We can hardly wait to go back in May and we hope you will take the opportunity to give yourself a break from your busy and hectic lives to join us in what truly is Paradise.
