Spiritual Guidance, Meditation and Silence

Be immersed in a way of being that is truly balanced, and connected to the beauty and sacredness of every moment. Nurture and heal your inner Being in an energy field of serenity, joy, and silence. 

Deepen your spiritual practice with three daily formal meditation sittings. Extinguish the noise and chaos of the chattering mind and allow the sublime reality of Infinite Peace to unfold within.

Receive spiritual guidance. During daily wisdom classes, Shunyamurti will guide you to overcome negative conditioning, release addictions, and negative self-images. These sacred satsang gatherings will offer you an opportunity to come out of external silence to ask the deepest questions of the heart.

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 a Brahmachari 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.

I started to feel real, powerful warmth in my heart when I was meditating in the group. The atmosphere here with everyone is very healing. I'm very pleased with my time here, and I'm pleased to find out what's ahead.

I first watched a teaching by Shunyamurti on YouTube and was filled with emotion. I realized that I resonated with him and the Ashram, and I signed up the next day. When you sit in front him, you connect. I realized things before he said them, which felt like I had been studying him for years already.

I question what to do with my life. With so many questions, after twenty years in the big corporate world, I knew what I didn't want to do. I got clarity: clarity on the personal level, and the consequence is amazing, interesting, and frightening at the same time. After seven days of silence and teachings, the question for me is not if I come back, but when I come back.

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.
