Posted June 7, 2006

Dear Vaishnavis: The Fourth Annual Vaishnavi Retreat in New Vrindaban takes place on Oct. 6t, 7th, and 8 th (Columbus Day Weekend) this year. It is a spiritually exciting event set in the Appalachian foothills during the delightful early fall season....the climate is lovely and the scenery is spectacular. The association is fantastic and the seminars and workshops inspire ladies of all ages.

We are looking for presenters, those generous souls who would like to share their knowledge and experience with others along the path. We cover a wide array of topics and are open to suggestions.....please consider yourself or send me names & contact information of others who you feel could add to this unique event-- for women, by women.

I am also looking for Ladies who may wish to spend a little time in New Vrindaban and would be willing to come early and assist with the unlimited details of getting the Retreat together, up and running. Useful skills would include command of English, ability to communicate harmoniously with people from various cultural and linguistic backgrounds, computer awareness, ability to drive along with a valid license is a big plus, artistic skills, cooking and cleaning, and most important, a general willingness to learn and go with the rapidly flowing current of an exciting Festival as it unfolds. Big Smile! Big Heart!

Last but not least, we welcome any generous souls who may wish to assist via financial sponsorship. Donations are tax-extempt.

I can be contacted at or 304-845-9591 (office)

your servant,
Malati dasi
