VASA’s Annual Retreat: 5 days of Amazing Learning with Master teacher & Vedic Scholar Jeffrey Armstrong

Once a year, Jeffrey Armstrong shares the best secrets of #YOGAWisdom & Longevity. This year we’ve booked a fabulous private estate in Mexico 60 miles from Cancun.  We would be most honored if you can join us for this auspicious event and celebration!  (Private message from Jeffrey at the bottom of this page)

Be inspired, rejuvenated, renewed, ignite your passion with #YOGICWISDOM tools that will serve you for your entire life. Yoga retreats are more than just a vacation; they nurture you on many levels. Devoting time to rest, rejuvenating and connecting with our true self creates a powerful opportunity for inner transformation, connection to our divine nature and higher purpose.

This is a special MASTER CLASS RETREAT bringing together a select group of friends, VASA students, and yoga teachers who are avidly interested in fast-tracking their life and yoga practice. Jeffrey Armstrong shares the best YOGA PHILOSOPHY & wisdom he’s learned over the years. Be prepared to be deeply inspired and transformed… EACH year has a theme and covers many topics: relationships, longevity, health, yoga philosophy, tantra, mantra, yantra, up to the highest conversations on Vedanta.  This will be an amazing, yet intimate gathering of  yogic thought leaders, writers, poets, artists, conscious entrepreneurs and speakers. It would take you years to learn what he will offer you in this 5 day retreat.

Come share an unforgettable experience!!

A personal Message from Jeffrey…

Dear Esteemed Friend & Student, Namaste, These past years, many of you have contributed your time and energy to VASA – thank you. One of the things we really appreciate is your steady creative input into the many global projects on which we are working and your commitment to traveling to distant lands to participate in these advanced learning retreats. Your presence and enthusiastic dedication inspires me to be the best teacher I can be, and through your personal progress you inspire others who may be new to the path of Vedic philosophy from which I teach.

Jeffrey teaches from the Brahma-Saraswati-Madhva-Gaudia-Vaishnava-Sampradaya lineage or more simply put: Inconceivably, Simultaneously, One & Different: The Distinctivist Path of Vedanta.

This REUNION is a time for you to “really lock-in” your spiritual practice and to give you the opportunity to go deep into your Vedic meditations. It is my only wish that before I leave the planet, my students will learn the Vedic knowledge as best as they can, and that you pass it forward as accurately as possible, and be shining beacons for the next generation.

We are all a divine work in progress. I am requesting your attendance so that I may pass on some of the deepest wisdom to my dedicated senior students and so that you may ask some of your most profound questions in the company of like-minded friends. It is said in the Niti-Shastra of Chanakya Pandit, that we learn in four ways: 25% from the teacher, 25% from the knowledge in the books, 25% from other students and 25% over the course of time. Please consider your attendance at this retreat/reunion as guru dakshina and a gift to yourself and your spiritual upliftment.

May our vision of bringing the healing tonic of Vedic knowledge to the world inspire you, and may the Divine Couple guide and bless your life always. Jai Sri Krishna, Kavindra Rishi
