You will stay at Shri Yoga Mandir Ashram, a Ganga river view guest house and ashram for yoga practices. The ashram is clean, quiet, has a beautiful garden, lots of light and air flowing through, and near to Assi Ghat. The ashram is owned and run by a local Brahim family. The modest accommodation is available in single or double occupancies with air conditioner and en-suite bathrooms.

Immersing yourself in this inspiring experience will intensify your inner process of awakening and more firmly establish you in your true love and wisdom. Every day, you will have the opportunity to participate in yoga, guided meditation, and the skills of HeartSourcing.

Varanasi is extraordinary in its spiritual depth, its stirring aliveness, and the grace and blessings that can be received here. Even more extraordinary is the vast expanse of the core of your own being, the inner source of your love, the radiant self in the cave of the heart. In this HeartSourcing retreat, you will experience both.

What is a HeartSourcing immersion?

  • Drinking deeply from the source of love
  • ‘The Work of Byron Katie,’ to clear the mind and help it to rest in inner peace
  • Open attention, to heal emotional edges and to nurture your entire being
  • Integrating the inner and outer known and secret sources of yoga and consciousness
  • Entering the world of the Gods, the living, and awe-inspiring aspects of your enlightened mind
  • Training heart and mind to encompass new joyful dimensions of being
  • Giving you the critically important skills you need to establish yourself in a higher and happier dimension of being

Your experience in the city of the Gods Varanasi can unfold on many levels.

Physical level

On the physical level, you will experience the adventure of staying in the city that has for millennia held the central position in the most ancient spiritual country on earth and visiting its most important vortexes of spiritual power.

Social level

On the social level, you can enjoy the exhilarating spiritual intimacy of satsang, connecting in community, kirtan, and celebration with a new part of your sacred family. And you move among the Indian people who are much more transparent to the presence of soul than we are in the west.

Mental level

Mentally, you can learn many things, among them the practice of ‘the work’ to free your mind of stressful thoughts. You will also discover many secrets of the Gods in the Indian pantheon, and how to evoke these aspects of your own enlightened mind so grace can awaken in you.

Emotional level

Emotionally, you can discover how to bring yourself into harmony with open attention and experience the practical use of the unlimited power of love to heal and nurture you.

Spiritual level

Spiritually, you can enjoy the unique ambiance of the sacred Ganga and the city of light. You can open to the experience of the deities as windows into higher reality or mirrors of the true self. In this way, the divine world becomes a portal into the absolute, beyond birth and death, the liberation into the timeless space of the fully awakened heart.

This is an adventure for yogis and spiritual seekers, not a tourist vacation. The goal is to go deep and have you bring home truly transforming experiences, a new admiration and shining love for yourself and all life, and a firm foothold in a higher and liberating awareness.
