How to Flourish as Community: Living in Joy in a Time of Planetary Phase Transition
We remain humbly engaged in endless learning and sharing. That spirit has motivated us to open our doors to create a forum that can both inspire and support, and also receive new information and perspectives—and opportunities for mutual benefit—by inviting all those who are either members of communities, leaders, or those who are thinking of joining a community and want a deeper sense of what is involved, what mistakes to avoid, and how to augment our thriving lifestyle.
Themes and Topics
The themes we intend to discuss at this inter-communal gathering include the following:
Unifying Vision and Full Commitment
Structure, Dharma, and Leadership
Psychological and Spiritual Power, Understanding, and Training
Food Security and Adaptation to an Off-Grid Future
Harvesting the Wisdom of past Monastic, Ashram, and Tribal Cultures
Transformational Processes for Maturation, Conflict Resolution, and Ego Transcendence
The Nitty Gritty: Dealing With Such Matters as Aging, Death, Money, Workers, Children, Entheogens, Sex and Drugs
Interested in learning more about these themes?
Shunyamurti is an adept healer who functions also as a researcher, author, community leader, guide, retreat facilitator, and teacher. 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, a special resonance with Sri Ramana Maharshi and a deep study of Advaita and esoteric Shaivism and Buddhism, have been supplemented by the intensive study of western metaphysics, modern sciences, profound exploration of the dimensions opened by entheogens, trans-personal psychology, various forms of psychoanalysis and Jungian dreamwork, and the entire development of the perennial philosophy, including Taoism, Kabbalah, and mystical Christianity.

Retreat Extension Program
A Seven-day program, September 28 – October 5, 2018
A retreat led by Shunyamurti is an intense and profound transformational process.
If you would like to maximize the benefits of your stay at the Sat Yoga Ashram, perhaps to be able to meet for a one-to-one healing session, or just to take your time to reflect and assimilate before facing the culture shock of a world you had left behind, consider signing up to this program.
This includes a 7-night stay in shared accommodation (2-3 in a room) plus all meals and activities. For a private room there is a supplement of $150 for the duration of the retreat.
Costa Rican Residents please inquire for local prices.
