Retreat Theme

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.

"Really exciting for me is the fact that he (Shunyamurti) combines the Western psychoanalysis with the Eastern teachings. Although I wanted an ashram experience, and I am Indian, I didn't feel that the ashram experience in India would be sufficient for me."

Dipika Wishhart, India/Ibiza

"What you get here and what you learn is the thing that can change everything in your life in a permanent way, and that's the key.  In this place, you can definitely find the answers that you are looking for."

Mike Mcginnis, Costa Rica

"It's the love, and that love has helped me to learn more about how to love myself, or the Self, unconditionally and fully. I have a greater sense of inner peace that I don't believe it will go away."
