Give yourself the gift of silence by learning how to still your mind and experience the eternal Now, revealing your true essence through self-inquiry, exploring the fundamental question, “Who am I?”, discovering the beauty of opening to cosmic consciousness. In this retreat, you will have the chance to go beyond the mental and emotional levels to experience the truth of the Spiritual Heart. You will be inspired to love from the expansive space of your real nature, transcending the ego’s blockages, the mind’s stories, and the tumult of the emotions. You will experience meditation as a celebration of the freedom and bliss of the self and gain a profound understanding of the meaning of life.
Lodging at our center.
This program aims to create an experience resembling a solitary retreat, as in a cave, in order to provide the opportunity to reach deep states of consciousness, kindle intense aspiration for the divine, and arrive at the highly focused interiorization that enables the opening of the Heart.
During this retreat, you will be skillfully guided to a penetrating understanding in which the search for meaning ends in surrender to the domain of revelation. No previous meditation or yoga experience is necessary as this retreat is designed for beginners and advanced meditators alike. The atmosphere will be one of agape and strong spiritual support.
During the retreat, you will learn methods for meditation encompassing, but not limited to, the unity of consciousness and Advaita Vedanta (non-duality). This leads to the self-discovery of the spiritual heart. The system of meditation will focus on the self-inquiry method developed by Ramana Maharshi, as well as other complementary meditations and prayers.
We aim to inform you about the practical and theoretical aspects of this methodology, allowing ample opportunities to directly put it into practice. In doing so, we hope that you will understand the underlying principles and value the purpose of meditation. Thus, reaping immediate benefits and coming to love meditation as an essential part of your life.
