August 18-20, 2017, 5th Annual Retreat, New Camaldoli Hermitage

Sangha Shantivanam was well-represented at last weekend's New Camaldoli gathering at St. Francis Retreat Center. 

Our facilitator/leader, Ziggy Rendler-Bregman, helped plan and prepare the weekend, and members Elbina Rafizadeh, Sarojani Rohan and others also participated. 

Sarojani's Celtic Music group, Innisfree, presented a concert with Fr. Cyprian on Friday night.  As Ziggy reports, "Innisfree played a combo of Irish ballads, folk and original songs which reached deeply to the heart of compassion, empathy and hope. It was the perfect opening for the retreat."
