Meditation Sri Nityananda Ashram Mount Eliza


The Ashram offers a variety of programs where you can begin or re-discover your own meditation practice. You can also deepen your existing practice. The ancient yogis believe that meditation is the single most important asset a person can develop. Additionally, a healthy mind thinks positive thoughts, or as Swamiji says, lives in the ‘Clear Space of Good Feeling’. Meditation is the doorway to that space.

Mount Eliza Ashram Satsang 2018 Meditation Intensive

Weekly Live-stream Satsang

Swami Shankarananda (Swamiji), has been holding satsang weekly for over 20 years. The event is dedicated to the wisdom teachings of great beings and realised masters from different traditions around the world. It offers an opportunity to meditate in the company of fellow seekers, and to open to a higher possibility in our often busy and mundane lives.


Kundalini Awakening

The essence of meditation and yoga is not technique but the dynamic energy that is generated – the process of Shaktipat. Once awakened, the divine Kundalini energy transforms and revloutionises meditation and spiritual life. Experience the power of Shaktipat from a living meditation master, empowered in an authentic yogic lineage.

Swami Shankarananda’s long-awaited spiritual autobiography, Ganeshpuri Days: Memoirs of a Western Yogi is now available! Order yours as a Kindle, Hardcover, or Paperback.
