“An ashram is the most ancient and sacred archetypal form of community. It is a school, a monastery, a refuge for Spirit to flourish, a pilgrimage center in which the highest wisdom is offered and the most sublime values are lived and shared with all.” ~ Shunyamurti
10-Day Program: July 31 - August 9
4-Week Program: July 31 - August, 27
Our charming cabins (bhavans) surrounded by pristine nature
Three delicious vegan meals a day with fresh ingredients from our organic garden
This experiential program is designed to recharge your inner power through immersion in the revolutionary energy field of a dedicated yogic community.
Accelerate your spiritual growth through psycho-spiritual wisdom classes, guided meditation practice, and selfless service within an ashram setting.
You will discover an intentional way of living that brings meaningful and lasting transformation to your life.
The Ashram Experience Includes:
Wisdom Classes: Bring clarity and new vision to your life with two to three weekly yogic theory classes and one weekly artistic expression class.
Sacred Satsangs with Shunyamurti: Shunyamurti, a meditation master and founder of Sat Yoga, offers powerful gathering for transformation and transcendence. Ask your deepest questions from the heart and receive an answer that will blow your mind away!
Meditation: Sunrise and sunset meditation sittings daily and two meditation mentoring sessions with a senior yogi weekly
Community Life: The Sat Yoga Ashram offers a way of life designed to optimize growth, creativity, and individuation. We are here to serve and accompany you at every step of your journey of Self-discovery.
Sacred Service: Being of service heals the heart! Learn new skills and enjoy karma yoga (community service) in areas such as kitchen, greenhouses, food forests, and gardens.
Sunrise Yoga Practice: Enjoy an early morning yoga practice overlooking the mountains three times a week.
One-to-One Spiritual Guidance: Shunyamurti has created a revolutionary approach to inner work called Atmanology. This form of one-to-one exploration of the full spectrum of consciousness culminates in life-changing transformation and healing. (These sessions are optional and not included in the program fee).
Time to Reflect: Enjoy nature walks and contemplation in the beautiful, natural setting of the ashram.
I started to feel real, powerful warmth in my heart when I was meditating in the group. The atmosphere here with everyone is very healing. I'm very pleased with my time here, and I'm pleased to find out what's ahead.
I first watched a teaching by Shunyamurti on YouTube and was filled with emotion. I realized that I resonated with him and the Ashram, and I signed up the next day. When you sit in front him, you connect. I realized things before he said them, which felt like I had been studying him for years already.
Sammantha, S. Africa
I question what to do with my life. With so many questions, after twenty years in the big corporate world, I knew what I didn't want to do. I got clarity: clarity on the personal level, and the consequence is amazing, interesting, and frightening at the same time. After seven days of silence and teachings, the question for me is not if I come back, but when I come back.
