Thank-you Hawaii Retreat 2016

Sandi here… We just got home from an incredible VASA 7-day retreat in Hawaii. Jeffrey unpacked – repacked and got on a plane for India within 48 hours – for another 35 hour flight!  He’s the guest speaker at the WAVES conference in Delhi and at the Ramayan Conference in Jabalpur. He'll be back in Vancouver after Christmas. 

We wish everyone a healthy and joyous season with friends and loved ones.

It's been a whirlwind travel year for us and yet, Jeffrey had been writing steady on his "Bhagavad Gita Comes Alive" translation. Hopefully this is the year it's finished! We're doing a "test run" on the NEW terminology in the book for Vancouver students in 8 classes thru Jan - March. See below.

For those of you interested in next years retreat I suggest you sign up early. It not only ensures you have the best room, but it enables us to put our deposit on the venue. We are not 100% sure we will use the same dates or venue yet – there were many advantages to this estate -- but the weather was unusually wet this year – not that that detracted from the quality of the classes! We will make our final decisions soon. You can put your deposits down here:

What else is NEW???

We posted some NEW ARTICLES and Jeffrey has a NEW e-book "The Possibility of Eternal Relationship", The Three Fold Nature of Endless Beauty.  DOWNLOAD HERE

Hope you enjoy them...  chat in the New Year!

Namaste Sandi

 Presented by Best-selling Author and Relationship Expert

Jeffrey Armstrong

Learn the Logic of Love & The Art of Compatibility:

Whether you are in a partnership now or looking for one – this course will provide you with the skills to select the right partner, handle day to day conflicts, increase intimacy and offer you a spiritual component that is missing in so many of today’s relationship models. Jeffrey links modern science, psychology, and male/female health with the Vedic sciences of Yoga, Ayurveda, and Jyotish including the initiations into many mantras, yantras and tantras.

This is an advanced relationship course – there are no “process” situations where you will have to divulge “old relationship patterns.” Your time will be spent learning a NEW paradigm that will enhance all of your relationships — for the rest of your life.
