Imagine your perfect retreat...

The Sat Yoga Ashram and community offers many ways to heal and rejuvenate. We are here to assist you in creating your perfect retreat.



Discover the healing power of meditating within the sacred energy field of the Sat Yoga Ashram. Gathering together to sit in inner silence, abiding in pure presence, will bring changes to your body and your personality—deeper serenity, youthfulness, health, and happiness, will emerge spontaneously the longer you stay. We offer meditation tuition with a senior yogi for those who are just discovering or looking to deepen their practice. You will not be the same person as before.

One-to-one Healing

Through years of study, yogic training and clinical experience, Shunyamurti has created a revolutionary approach to inner work called Atmanology.

Offering a modality of spiritual healing that goes far beyond energy work or psychology—to catalyze ego transcendence and release of all remains of suffering. These are one-to-one confidential meetings that involve freewheeling, free association dialogue, energy raising, and other interventions that are appropriate. Expect surprise, massive influxes of light, awe, tears, laughter, stillness, and the grace of true Presence.


Yoga asana, bodywork and massage therapies

Explore and deepen your yoga asana practice. We offer a range of practices and instruction in asana and pranayama. Private tuition is available upon request as well as group classes.

We can also offer a variety of massage and physical well-being packages to nourish and rejuvenate the body. Please fill in the form below to create your perfect healing package.


Nature is your Neighbor

Nestled within our flourishing gardens, a winding path leads to your home as you enter into the transformational journey to your own innermost nature.

Your bhavan, or spiritual abode, offers you two bathrooms, a small kitchen, a living room, two balconies, and a bedroom with a queen size bed.

Your private balconies and large windows overlook the natural beauty of the surrounding forests and gardens, providing the perfect conditions for meditation and relaxation.

A psychic vortex that is part of the spectrum of consciousness, which determines the parameters and qualities of the psychospiritual field of action that an individual feels bound by. As one’s vibrational frequency (kundalini) rises, one is able to leave a lower chakra identity behind and enter a new field of action with fewer constraints on freedom. There are seven chakras, and the ultimate chakra brings release from all constraints.


This is the subtle bio-electromagnetic energy that functions to keep the organism alive and well. It is known as Chi, or Qi, in China; ki in Japan; vril or od in the ancient Germanic shamanic traditions; mana in Polynesia; and renamed in the West variously as orgone, élan vital, and animal magnetism. It should be differentiated from Shaktipat, which is a much higher vibrational force that descends from supraphysical dimensions, and is related to Brahman, or the scalar force that operates via the cosmic Aether, and is responsible for the opening of the Thousand Petalled Lotus at the crown of the head. Prana is also different from Kundalini Shakti, which is the rising energy that emerges from the root chakra (Muladhara) to activate the higher chakras and stabilize the opening of the Third Eye.

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.
