Study & Meditation Immersion

Extended Stays for Deeper Transformation

A 10-day or 4-Week Study and Meditation Program

Take a quantum leap in your self-understanding through yogic wisdom and meditation. Discover the key to lasting inner peace as you shed the illusion of the ego and empower your True Self.

A Time of Accelerated Growth

The Sat Yoga Ashram Immersion is a carefully developed program of practical wisdom classes, plus several daily meditation sittings, special classes in the arts, satsangs in the company of Shunyamurti, immersion in community life and opportunities for karma yoga (communal service). These programs offer a portal into the Truth of our intrinsic nature, deeper within than can be reached by thought. For ripe souls eager to pursue an authentic path to Self-realization, this is the express train.

Theoretical Knowledge Made Practical

Daily classes in the understanding of the mind and its dynamic functioning are offered in small group settings. In these classes, you will come to appreciate the structure of the human ego, how it operates and limits your day-to-day life. You will discover maps of consciousness to enable you to traverse the ego level and function in Soul-consciousness, then on to Pure Spirit and the bliss of Presence. You will come to understand the trajectory of inner growth and how to help others make quantum leaps as well.

Full immersion in community life

Following the ancient practice of yogis, we begin the day by meditating together at 4am. This early morning meditation gathering helps overcome laziness, creates a unified energy field, clarity of mind, and an open heart for the day ahead. Immersion students participate in all our community meditations and classes, as well as special satsangs with Shunyamurti, and uphold the Yamas and Niyamas, the ethical yogic guidelines by which our community abides. As part of your immersion program, experience the healing power of seva with 7 – 10 weekly hours of karma yoga (communal service) in the gardens, kitchen, housekeeping, and other areas of daily activity.

Inner work, Contemplation, reflection

Each day there are several opportunities for independent reflection, study, journaling and free time to enjoy the beautiful natural setting of the Sat Yoga Ashram. You will have the opportunity to tap into previously unexplored areas of your being through artistic expression and exploration.

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

You can significantly accelerate your transformation by engaging in one-to-one sessions with a trained guide.

Staying at the Ashram

The Sat Yoga Ashram is a refuge of pristine natural beauty. It is not easy to find on maps. Concealed by its encompassing cloud forest, in the misty mountains of southern Costa Rica. You will feel a different kind of energy as you enter the ashram land.

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.
