Swami Rama Sadhaka Grama in Rishikesh, India, offers ongoing guest programmes, in the form of individual (or group) spiritual retreats.
Foundational Instructions of the Guest Programmes:
• To experience some level of calm mind, relaxation, or stillness while at SRSG.
• To know how to sit properly for meditation
• To know about the “Himalayan Tradition”: foundation, history, and basic theory etc.
• To understand the meaning of “yoga” and “meditation” more fully
• To apply yoga and meditation into daily life.
• To deepen your practice
• To keep the connection via full moon meditations and/or local centers
Individual Spiritual Retreats:
We aim to individualize our progammes, taking into account the particular areas of interests of our guests, but all newcomers do go through a series of classes that introduce, orient and share the foundation practices and philosophy of the Himalayan Tradition.
Guests are offered a daily schedule of instruction in meditation, pranayama (breathing practices), relaxation, hatha yoga, and yoga philosophy in accordance with their individual goals. With the welcome interview, the programme is tailored for an individual. Every guest can experience one day silence retreat through the weekly ashram official silence day.
The SRSG staff will also help design programs for groups to meet their specific needs. The campus can accommodate up to 100 participants.
With the approval of the spiritual director, silence retreats are offered in guided silence periods of 1-10 days, or for those with prior silence experience, 40 days can be arranged. A systematic series of practices is given. For those who are ready, a three month practice of silence and solitude may be given.
Participants in all the programmes follow the daily ashram schedule which begins at 5:00 AM and runs until 9:30 PM. Time for reading, journaling, and reflection is always available.
Classes on the basic yoga practices are regularly scheduled as well as lecture courses for which guests may attend as appropriate and special events and seminars.
