“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

Program Dates:
2-Week Program: Jan 29 – Feb 11
4-Week Program: Jan 29 – Feb 25

Accommodations​:​
Our charming cabins (bhavans) surrounded by pristine nature

Meals:
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.

Scholarships

The Sat Yoga Scholarship Fund was created to offer retreat and program scholarships to a wider community of serious seekers looking for a sacred space to heal and grow spiritually, who may be in need of financial assistance. We ask your support to enable us to welcome more people who yearn for Self-realization. Please consider donating to the scholarship fund so we can provide the needed assistance in our environment of wisdom and love.  If you wish to join us, but have limited financial resources, please visit our Scholarship Fund page.

General Requirements for Prospective Applicants

  • A sincere interest and, ideally, some experience in meditation
  • A genuine desire to practice a less egocentric mode of living
  • Commitment to the goal of ego transformation and transcendence is always at the core of everything we do; for this reason, we ask participants to commit to the keeping of the Yamas and Niyamas (ethical yogic vows) and upholding our Ashram Guidelines for the duration of their stay here
  • Familiarity and resonance with Shunyamurti’s teachings before applying
  • A willingness to take part in transformational healing (Atmanology) sessions
  • The ability to cheerfully cope with the challenges of living in an active and hard-working monastic community
  • The ability to adapt to our diet which is strictly vegetarian, with some gluten free and vegan options available. Although we aim to cater to everyone’s dietary needs and preferences, we cannot accommodate acute food sensitivities or allergies
  • A willingness to live in a remote location: we are a 45 minutes drive from clinics, shops, and other services, and there is no regular shuttle service or public transportation directly to the ashram
  • Financial resources to cover your personal needs (including all insurances, medical care/emergencies, transportation, and visa costs if coming from another country) for the duration of your stay
  • You must be at least 18 years old by your prospective date of arrival

Brahmachari:

One whose consciousness has merged with Brahman, the Absolute, and thus has been liberated from all desire, fear, attachment, and material frames of reference. Thus, a Brahmachari naturally lives a life of celibacy, simplicity, and inner solitude.

Satsang:

Meditative meetings in which the highest teachings are shared. Shunyamurti also offers guidance during questions and answers to resolve the most difficult and delicate matters of the heart.

Teleological:

Information, energy, or nonlinear change that occurs as the effect of events that take place in the future and alter the past, which is perceived in the present as non-ordinary phenomena, synchronicities, unpredictable emergent properties or other notable explicate arisings. The source of such forces may also lie beyond chronological time, in higher dimensions of the Real.

The process of non-process:

Since awakening is instantaneous, along with the recognition that one was never really in the dream, but enjoying the creation of the dream, it must be understood that making awakening into a process can only be part of the dream, and has nothing to do with Awakening itself.

The Real:

When we speak of the Real, unless otherwise qualified, we mean the Supreme Real. The Supreme Real does not appear. Appearance is not Real. All that appears is empty of true existence. There are no real things. All that is phenomenal is temporary, dependent, and reducible to a wave function of consciousness. The world does not exist independent of consciousness. There is no matter or material world. All is made of consciousness. Pure consciousness is Presence. It is no-thing, non-objective, not in space or time. All that appears in Presence, or to Presence, is an emanation of Presence, but is not different from That. This is one meaning of nonduality.

The Real is also a term used in Lacanian psychoanalysis. What Lacan means by the Real is that aspect of phenomenal appearance which is overwhelming, traumatic, or impossible. We would call that Real One. It is a relative Real, not Absolute. We add that there is a Real Two, which consists of divine love. Love is not an appearance, but it changes appearance, through recognition of its Source, into a divine manifestation, a projection of God’s sublimely beautiful Mind as infinite fractal holographic cosmos. Real Three is the unchanging Absolute, beyond all conception or image.

Dharma and dharma:

When we use the term Dharma (capitalized), we refer to our dedication to living in accord with the timeless principles of impeccable integrity that keep us in harmony with Nature and our Supernatural Source.

When we use the term without capitalization, we refer to our acceptance of the community’s processes, protocols, and chain of command with the “Haji! Spirit” of going the “extra mile” and working overtime when necessary to make the impossible inevitable, as our unconditional act of surrender to Love.
