Summer Retreat & Intensive

With Swami Shankarananda
& Devi Ma

Saturday January 8th to
Sunday the 16th 2022

Real strength comes from being centred in the divine

Retreats are a wonderful way to nourish your personal sadhana, as well as receive authentic lineage teachings from a modern meditation master. The Ashram is a living expression of the tradition of Kashmir Shaivism, dedicated to helping seekers make contact with the infinite source of love and wisdom contained within. 


Join us for our Ganeshpuri-style Summer Retreat at The Ashram January 8-16, 2022. The Summer retreat is one of the highlights of the ashram calendar year. This celebratory coming together of the community includes satsang with Swamiji and Devi Ma, talks from senior ashram teachers, chanting of the Guru Gita and Shiva Mahimna Stotram, seva (selfless service), Shiva Process Self-inquiry, and personal pujas, as well as daily morning meditation and arati to Bhagavan Nityananda.


The retreat culminates in the Meditation Intensive with Shaktipat on January 16.

Meditation Intensive with Shaktipat Awakening with Swami Shankarananda at The Ashram Mount Eliza

Shaktipat - Kundalini Awakening

In 1976, Swamiji’s Guru Baba Muktananda instructed him to ‘awaken people just as he did’. Baba was referring to Shaktipat, or Kundalini awakening. Shaktipat is the awakening of divine awareness in the seeker by a Guru who has been given that power from his own teacher. Shaktipat leads to deeper, more alive meditations, and can make reaching states of meditation much easier. 

The guidance of a master is essential when receiving Shaktipat and doing sadhana. Swamiji has awakened thousands of people and guides seekers with love, compassion, humility and grace. 


All ashram retreats culminate in the Intensive program.
