A sacred ashram retreat

Whether you are an experienced yogi, or simply discovering the gift of meditation, this retreat will inspire and empower you to move forward with greater clarity and purpose.

A seven-day retreat with Shunyamurti is an authentic rite of passage. The retreat will include essential teachings on the subjects of yoga, meditation, and spiritual development. Enjoy the pristine natural setting of the Sat Yoga Ashram, as well as delicious and healthful vegetarian meals.

Shunyamurti offers a transfusion of empowering knowledge that will enable you to overcome self-defeating tendencies, bring clarity, renew your life energy, and inspire your freedom and creative power.

A New Paradigm for Thriving in Perilous Times

To empower Business Executives, Directors of NGOs, Social and Political Leaders, Coaches, and Leaders of Spiritual Communities


For those innovative leaders who want a high-return paradigm that enables full-spectrum mastery of consciousness, Shunyamurti has distilled the science of yoga into a brilliant and hard-hitting methodology to prepare leaders to face and overcome the unprecedented challenges now engulfing our planet and impacting all of us.

The Yoga of Leadership is the application of the power of heightened consciousness to command loyalty, navigate wisely through dangerous situations, and alter the course of events.

This retreat will provide you with practical, universally applicable information and tools, which you will find easily transmissible to your colleagues, employees, friends, and fellow members of whatever organizations you lead.

Learn how to:

  • Function successfully as a leader under the current conditions of exponential change
  • Prepare for social, political, economic, and geophysical shifts of unpredictable nature and unlimited scope
  • Achieve freedom from stress
  • Gain mastery over the mind
  • Develop the capacity to remain centered and bring coherence to the chaotic field of events
  • Ensure accurate communication among those of different generational styles and logics—including millennials, gen-x, boomers, traditionalists, and upcoming centennials;
  • Reach and train those with damaged or fragile psychological constitutions to attain their highest potentials.

About Shunyamurti

His long history of leadership, social activism, direct experience of several professions, constant creativity, capacity to foresee the future, and courage in taking leaps into the unknown in order to fulfill his vision, have made Shunyamurti an excellent mentor and consultant for executives and social leaders in all fields of endeavor.

He has functioned as a trial lawyer, a political science advisor, an investigative journalist, and an executive in the publishing field. He earned degrees in philosophy and psychology and created a successful private practice for twenty years as a transformational healer in California.

Most importantly, of course, he has studied in depth the science of consciousness, in particular the practice of meditation, and its organizational applications—as an effective tool for stress management and the augmentation of intuitive precognition, for assessing and strengthening the stability and unity of team members, and preparing accurate responses to unpredictable events.


In 2004, Shunyamurti founded the Sat Yoga Institute and Ashram in Costa Rica, where he continues to function as director, healer, retreat leader, and teacher.

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.


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.


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.
