A Sat Yoga Retreat at Home
This retreat is a rare and precious opportunity for like-hearted seekers from all around the world to join together for satsang, sacred gatherings of truth, and sadhana, spiritual practice. During this time, we invite you to cultivate the ambience of an ashram at home, to create your own spiritual refuge, a sanctuary in which to eliminate all distractions and to bring one-pointed clarity to the attainment of Self-realization.
Each day will be centered around two 90-minute Livestream Sessions:
Six Satsangs with Shunyamurti including Guided Meditations, Wisdom Teachings, and Question & Answer sessions, and
Two Encounter Groups via Zoom - these are an opportunity to share and reflect on the teachings and the retreat with Sat Yoga Senior Yogis and other online participants.
Lifetime Access to the Retreat Website
All the teachings and bonus materials will be available to access and review on our exclusive Retreat Website, and will be yours to keep after the retreat ends. You will also be able to post questions and comments to all participants and for Shunyamurti at any time.
Because of the different time zones of online participants, we will not be livestreaming our 4 am meditation gatherings. Instead, we have created a Morning Meditation Guide, available on the Retreat Website, so that you have everything you need to implement your own early morning meditation routine. If Shunyamurti teaches during this time, we will upload the video to the retreat website immediately afterward.
Purusha, our Members Section Editor, will be online to field any questions during this retreat and to be a bridge between your online experience and the ashram here in Costa Rica.
Shunyamurti is the founder and spiritual director of the Sat Yoga Institute and Ashram.
Many years of meditation practice and training in numerous forms of yoga, including apprenticeship with Baba Hari Dass, ten years of vowed association with a Brahmachari ashram in India, and a special resonance with Sri Ramana Maharshi have been supplemented by the intensive study of Western metaphysics, various forms of psychoanalysis and Jungian dreamwork, as well as Taoism, Kabbalah, and mystical Christianity.
I'm blown away by the vastness of wisdom in these teachings. I've been searching for this guidance, for the way home, my whole life. I am so grateful to be here, with you all. Thank you Shunya, thank you Sangha!

Infinite thanks to Shunyamurti! The way to our holiness has been clarified. May we all stay enveloped in the divine crown of light and grow the grid stronger in service.

I have been listening to Shunyamurti’s talks for a while but to be there online is a different experience. I felt connected and I felt I was actually there. I hope to attend a retreat soon!
Ana Margarita Elizondo, Costa Rica
For me, facing, and going through this corona crisis would simply not be possible were it not for this retreat and for Shunyamurti’s mind-shattering teachings, and the salvific power and beauty that emanates from the Sat Yoga Ashram. A deeply felt thank-you!
Michael May, Paris.
Thank you very much for this opportunity to attend this online retreat. Very, very grateful! The satsangs in real time were really powerful. Each time I joined the satsang I was immediately in my true nature. So, so beautiful... The peace and bliss are unbroken. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

It was the first time for me to attend an online retreat of this magnitude, and I found it an amazing experience. To me, Shunyamurti represents a teacher of great knowledge and the blending of spiritual knowledge, psychology, and quantum physics; the content of the teachings resonated with me and I'm looking forward to another online retreat.
Tahera Ahmed, Switzerland
Initially, I felt “homesick “ for the ashram, as the reality of not being able to visit again sunk in. But at the end, a joyous connection, a morphogenetic field had emanated from all the teachings and input, so that an available connection was formed which would override those funny feelings of loss or separation, and it has maintained. In Spades!
Alicia White, USA
Love is the most cherished feeling imaginable to human beings, a many-splendored thing, what makes the world go round, the raison d’etre of life itself. Yet love of a lower kind has been our downfall, the cause of our having arrived at the brink of our planetary destruction. How can we use the saving power of pure Love to overcome our wrong-hearted and wrong-headed understanding of love and its defiled and perverted versions? How can we come to recognize once again as a species the true meaning and feeling of Love in its purest and most holy form? And how can we return to living in such Infinite Love?
If these concerns touch your heart, you will find peace and joy in this retreat, to be led lovingly and tenderly by Shunyamurti, as we come to apply the balm of supreme love to put the ego down in eternal rest, and reunite with the Fullness of God.
The final fruit of Love is Union, when God is realized as the Self, the all-inclusive Self of nonduality in which both world and ego disappear. In the flourishing of this Absolute Blissful Nature, the Unborn gives rebirth to a perfect realm that is the undistorted reflection, and joy, of the infinitely loving and creative Mother Goddess of Beauty and the protective Father of Truth and Mercy, all shining as the singularity of the Whole.
Blessings to all for the realization of this most comforting divine mercy, which alone can set free our hearts and our world to create a new and more wondrous future.
