 Vegan delights weekend

"I just wanted to thank you so much for a fantastic weekend. I came back completely rejuvenated and energised. It was great from start to finish. And as for the food - wow, I thought I'd lose weight only eating vegetarian food for the weekend, but it was so good we all went back for second helpings.

I'm still dreaming about Carmen's chickpea stew - if the recipe isn't a state secret, I'd really love to get it so my husband can finally taste what I've been raving about!!


Again thank you and all the Community for a wonderful time,




"Hi Tim 

Thank you for a wonderful weekend . That was my third weekend retreat this year and I have to say it far surpassed the other two. They were not even in the same league. I have been telling all my friends about it and I wish I had taken more leaflets as I have already given away the few I did take. I will definitely be back next year for the vegetarian cookery course as I have been converted and in the meantime Emma is going to give me some recipes...I was very impressed by the kindness and gentleness of everybody in the Hare Krishna community.  


"I am writing to say thank you so much for a very relaxing weekend that I needed for a long time but never made the time to fit in. A number of weeks have passed now and the effects are still there. I feel I have changed for the better thanks to all of you and Hilda, and I am very grateful. Hope you are all keeping well, My very best wishes,

The hospitality was superb. I thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of it. Nothing was an effort and everybody made sure we were all well looked after at all times. Food was amazing,

I found my retreat to be thoroughly relaxing and beneficial - exactly what I needed to calm the mind. The atmosphere in the house and temple was very special



I didn't know what to expect, but was open to 'going with the flow'! The 'flow' was wonderful, and I was very impressed by the kindness and warmth shown to me, and by the tolerance and patience my endless questions were received with. I hope to return next year for another retreat, and to avail of more courses. I would like to see more DVDs, and do more chanting,



Thank you Tim for such a lovely weekend. I haven't gotten around to putting the photos into the computer yet but when I do I'll forward on the group photo. I hope you all had a lovely day yesterday.

Please pass on my regards to Elizabeth, Sukhada, Ani, Gertie, and Bhagavata Dasi whom it was lovely to see again on Sunday. And of course you Tim for looking after us so well - eventhough you ate all the homemade jam on us! :-)

I hope to come back for a return journey sometime, hopefully soon. Wishing you all the very best, Hare Krishna
