Take a Quantum Leap on your Path Through Yogic Wisdom and Meditation. 

 ​

The Sat Yoga Ashram Immersion is a carefully developed program of practical wisdom classes, plus several daily meditation sittings, satsangs in the company of Shunyamurti, immersion in community life and opportunities for karma yoga.

Come to understand the structure of the human ego, how it operates and limits your day-to-day life and discover maps of consciousness to enable you to traverse the ego level and function in Soul-consciousness, then on to Pure Spirit. 

​​

An ashram immersion offers you a sacred space to heal and transform. An ashram is the most ancient 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.

  • A sincere interest and, ideally, some experience in meditation

  • A genuine desire to practice a less egocentric mode of living
