Join Swami Shankarananda (Swamiji or Guruji) and Devi Ma for 4 day 5 night meditation retreat this June 30th – July 4th. Due to covid restrictions, this retreat has been shortened from 8 to 4 days, and is now only available online.
Retreats at The Ashram are dedicated to sadhana, or spiritual practice. Swamiji says that ‘the Self’ is within everyone, and can also be described as the ‘Clear Space of Good Feeling’. Athletes describe this state of consciousness as being ‘in the zone’, or an artist might say they are ‘in the flow’.
The yogic practices that occur at The Ashram are all ancient techniques, which are tried and time tested to bring peace, happiness, insight and understanding to the seeker. They can aid in unblocking your inner world, and also your outer world. They provide a doorway to higher Consciousness, while simultaneously honouring and working with the practical or mundane aspects of life.
Learn Self-inquiry meditation through the Shiva Process Method.
Experience the divine energy, Shakti, as your own Self in the company of meditation masters.
The non-dual tantric philosophy of Consciousness.
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.
