Live and Study at the Ashram!

Shakti Saturation Month

A 4-Week Onsite Ashram Program with Shunyamurti and the Sat Yoga Sangha

A Life-Changing Journey into the Self

The Shakti Saturation Month is a 4-Week transformational intensive specially designed to serve our growing global community.

This onsite program is open to all who feel in alignment with the Sat Yoga teachings, and who wish to immerse themselves in the ashram energy field and go deeper into the silence of the Self.

Whether you are joining us for one month or exploring the possibility of extended and long-term stays, this program will serve as an introduction to life at the Ashram. Your days will be filled with wisdom school studies, meditation, inner work and transformational sessions, and immersion in community life.

This compact course offers a curriculum of classes and events that will enable you to safely and quickly release the habitual patterns of thought and emotion that obscure your Real Self.

This 4-Week Ashram Intensive includes:

  • Advanced seminar/retreat led by Shunyamurti (3, 5 or 7 days)
  • Accommodations in our charming cabins
  • Three nutritious and delicious, ovo-lacto vegetarian or vegan meals per day, with many ingredients from our organic gardens
  • Morning and evening meditations with the Sangha
  • Small group classes exploring our core curriculum of timeless wisdom
  • Artistic expression classes
  • Satsangs and dialogue with Shunyamurti
  • Community Seva (Karma Yoga)
  • Yoga Asana Practice weekly
  • Optional Atmanology sessions
  • Time for walks, birdwatching, and contemplation in the beautiful natural setting of the ashram.

The Great Escape

The Theme for November’s Shakti Saturation Month

Since reality is seen through the delusional projections of the ego—which is the cause of suffering and sin—the only escape from one’s hell realm is to bring the attention inward, deeper within than the ego mind can reach. There you will discover the luminous Presence of the God-Self—and the portal to eternal freedom.

This Sacred Journey Functions on Three Levels:

1

Relaxation, Astonishment, and Joy

in the Solitude of Quarantine

Breathing the pure air and feeling the purity of the energy field will exhilarate and liberate your energies! You may feel more vibrantly alive than ever! As you recharge energetically, you will also experience a subtle paradigm shift underway, into a deeper perception of reality, filled with more options and potentialities than you had ever imagined!

2

Direct Transmission of Truth, Light, and Power

3, 5, and 7-day retreats led by Shunyamurti

An advanced seminar/retreat led by Shunyamurti forms the core of the program. Offering direct transmission of shakti and gyana, connecting you with the Self, this series of gatherings will also give you the opportunity to ask your own burning questions and gain an integrated understanding of this world and the transcendent reality as a whole. You will gain peace of mind and renewed faith in God’s presence, goodness, and plan for restoring Heaven on Earth.

3

The Deconstruction of Ego and the Rise of Kundalini

Take a quantum leap in your self-understanding through yogic wisdom, meditation and joyful participation in our ashram community.

In the days following the seminar, you will undergo a rigorous set of classes designed to uncover and release your shadow, free yourself from the chains of the ego’s limitations, and rise into the sublime heights of illumined and ecstatic Consciousness! This is your natural state—your Buddha Nature—and you will discover that you can live always in joy and wisdom, freedom from fear, and with astounding creative intelligence! So, leave behind your obsolete attitudes and fly into a new life of Liberation! You are invited to all our early morning meditations, asana and pranayama workshops, evening tutorials and study groups, community service, small encounter groups, and special Satsangs led by Shunyamurti.

The Joy of Pure Life

Live for a Month as a True Sannyasi

Our spiritual community fulfils the traditional Costa Rican greeting of “Pura Vida!” by offering an immersion in our pure lifestyle of natural joy.

You will discover what it is like to live in community and participate in all our activities, including three daily meditation sittings, evening classes, book groups, occasional movie nights, cultural events, and all-round service to the sangha. You will also receive special retreatant classes. Our hope is that you will be fully reinvigorated and clear about the next steps on your path.

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.
