From residential retreats, to one-day workshops, to seminars, symposia, debates, and competitions, CHYKs around the world have continued to think outside the box and organize unique, creative events, with catchy themes, relevant topics, and intriguing activities, to help exploit and unfurl all of one’s personality layers: physical, mental, intellectual, and spiritual.

While CHYK events differ enormously in style and content, the purpose and result of positive and uplifting energy that characterizes every CHYK activity pervades each event organizer, participant, and spectator alike. All CHYK special events are planned and organized under the auspices of Chinmaya Mission’s host of Acharyas, who constantly motivate, guide, channelize, and strengthen CHYKs on their journey of inner purity and evolution.

Upcoming Events


Hari Om!

Join Chinmaya Mission DC’s Young Adult wing, CHYK DC, this summer, from July 21st – 23rd, for Finding the Fundamental: Peace in a Restless World – a special dual Acharya retreat featuring Mukhya Swami Swaroopananda and Acharya Vivekji.

Campers will study the most fundamental mantra, the Gayatri Mantra, and essays of different faiths from the Mananam book Peace in a Restless World. In a time when the world—perhaps—needs it most, we will explore together how Vedanta reasons, concludes and guides one to experience unconditional, infinite peace centered in one’s own being.

Participants should be rising high school seniors through age 35. Campers will be housed by families of local area attendees and have the option to stay at a local hotel (at extra cost). All meals will be catered.

The retreat is open to all young adults, irrespective of Chinmaya Mission membership. All backgrounds and beliefs are welcome!

The early registration fee is $139 until June 12th.
The regular registration fee is $164 and ends on July 12th.
