Moved by Love Retreats


Every month, MovedByLove volunteers host a 3-day experiential service retreat on the outskirts of Ahmedabad, Gujarat. To deepen the participant's experience of generosity, build community amongst each other, and reflect on subtle values embedded in our acts of giving, we will engage in various activities of "head, heart and hands". It could include volunteering in a village, doing random acts of kindness, meeting local everyday heroes, discussing edges of practicing selflesness and more. Ultimately, by amplifying the inner transformation element of the service process, our hope is to cultivate a shift from consumption to contribution, transaction to trust, isolation to community, and scarcity to abundance.

To attend our next retreat and join this collective journey of growing in generosity, please click on the registration link below and fill out the application form. To facilitate deeper connections, we limit most of our retreats to 30 participants.
