Ardfert, Kriya Hiking Retreat in Kerry – Mon 29th June- Friday 4th July 2020

Join Swami Managalananda on a 6-day retreat in County Kerry which will include walks and hikes along superb sandy beaches, rugged cliffs above the expansive Atlantic Ocean, enchanting forests, holy wells, and scenic mountain peaks. Many of the walks will follow the course of the Kerry Camino which is the ancient pilgrim path of St. Brendan the Navigator. This area is also known for its unusually high number of pre-Christian archaeological sites. The retreat will offer a golden opportunity to deepen your Kriya practice with fellow Kriyavans under the guidance of Swami Mangalananda. The location will be at the newly renovated Ardfert Retreat Centre and accommodations include private rooms. The Retreat Centre is near the ancient Ardfert Monastery that served as a beacon of light during the Dark Ages of Europe. The Centre is also a short 4 km walk to Banna Beach which was awarded a Blue Flag in 2018. Ardfert is an ideal location to explore the enchanting Dingle Peninsula, which is well known for its rugged beauty in a remote corner of Ireland’s south western coast. Nearby are world class walks and hikes like Mt. Brandon, Slea Head, Connor Pass, Kerry Head and Mount Eagle. This location is also within range of Ballyseedy Woods, Ballybunion Cliffs and Killarney National Park.
