A Sat Yoga Retreat at Home

This retreat is a rare and precious opportunity for like-hearted seekers from all around the world to join together for satsang, sacred gatherings of truth, and sadhana, spiritual practice. During this time, we invite you to cultivate the ambience of an ashram at home, to create your own spiritual refuge, a sanctuary in which to eliminate all distractions and to bring one-pointed clarity to the attainment of Self-realization. 

Livestream Schedule

Lifetime Access to the Retreat Teachings

All the teachings and bonus materials will be available to access and review on our exclusive Retreat Website and will be yours to keep as an audio-video package after the retreat ends. 

Morning Meditations

Because of the different time zones of online participants, we will not be livestreaming our 4 am meditation gatherings. Instead, we have created a  Morning Meditation Guide, available on the Retreat Website, so that you have everything you need to implement your own early morning meditation routine. If Shunyamurti teaches during this time, we will upload the video to the retreat website immediately afterward.

Dedicated Support

Purusha, our Members Section Editor, will be online to field any questions during this retreat and to be a bridge between your online experience and the ashram here in Costa Rica. You will also be able to post questions and comments to all participants and for Shunyamurti at any time during the retreat.

What is Meditation?

"Meditation is the act of questioning the relationship to thought, body and world.”

In this video teaching, recorded during the opening satsang of a Meditation Weekend, Shunyamurti defines meditation and offers us a thought experiment to help us overcome our obstacles to meditation.

About Shunyamurti

Shunyamurti is an adept healer, he is the founder and spiritual director of the Sat Yoga Institute and Ashram.

Many years of meditation practice and training in numerous forms of yoga, including apprenticeship with Baba Hari Dass, ten years of vowed association with an ashram in India, and a special resonance with Sri Ramana Maharshi have been supplemented by the intensive study of Western metaphysics, various forms of psychoanalysis and Jungian dreamwork, as well as Taoism, Kabbalah, and mystical Christianity.

Testimonials

I’m blown away by the vastness of wisdom in these teachings. I’ve been searching for this guidance, for the way home, my whole life. I am so grateful to be here, with you all. Thank you Shunya, thank you Sangha! 

Alexandra Lincoln, USA

Infinite thanks to Shunyamurti! The way to our holiness has been clarified. May we all stay enveloped in the divine crown of light and grow the grid stronger in service.

Delphine Coli, Netherlands

For me, facing, and going through this corona crisis would simply not be possible were it not for this retreat and for Shunyamurti’s mind-shattering teachings, and the salvific power and beauty that emanates from the Sat Yoga Ashram. A deeply felt thank-you!

Michael May, Paris

It was the first time for me to attend an online retreat of this magnitude, and I found it an amazing experience. To me, Shunyamurti represents a teacher of great knowledge and the blending of spiritual knowledge, psychology, and quantum physics; the content of the teachings resonated with me and I’m looking forward to another online retreat.

Tahera Ahmed, Switzerland

I have been listening to Shunyamurti’s talks for a while but to be there online is a different experience. I felt connected and I felt I was actually there.  I hope to attend a retreat soon!

Delphine Coli, Netherlands

Thank you very much for this opportunity to attend this online retreat. Very, very grateful! The satsangs in real time were really powerful. Each time I joined the satsang I was immediately in my true nature. So, so beautiful… The peace and bliss are unbroken. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Usha Kumari, Malaysia

Initially, I felt “homesick “ for the ashram, as the reality of not being able to visit again sunk in. But at the end, a joyous connection, a morphogenetic field had emanated from all the teachings and input, so that an available connection was formed which would override those funny feelings of loss or separation, and it has maintained. In Spades!

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.
