30 Yuvati Mandal karyakars came together from across the UK for a National Karyakar Retreat at Cardigan Bay, Wales from 13 to 15 April 2012. The aim of the retreat was to strengthen the bond and unity among the karyakars in a relaxed and enjoyable environment.
Through goshti sessions and interactive activities, yuvatis discussed the importance of understanding the true greatness of Bhagwan Swaminarayan and the Satpurush and how to earn their happiness.
Yuvatis shared their experiences on keeping Satsang at the forefront of their lives even while diligently fulfilling their other responsibilities. These exercises helped develop a finer understanding and appreciation of each karyakar, while also providing inspiring insights of the seva performed by fellow karyakars in their respective centres.
The weekend also provided an opportunity for outdoor recreational activities, such as walks around the picturesque Cardigan Bay, and evenings of light entertainment.
Each karyakar departed with a renewed sense of team spirit and self-confidence, and an enhanced understanding of their essential seva role for both their local and National Yuvati Mandal.
