This is a rotating program and will be given on the following dates.
29 September – 5 October 2019
29 March – 4 April 2020
This special retreat is offered especially for those who have previously visited Swami Rama Sadhaka Grama (SRSG), perhaps once or on several occasions, and who have had the basic lessons and have also received initiation into a personal mantra.
Now, the fundamental questions remain:
how to refine our meditation practice after initiation,
how to deepen and refine the use of one’s personal diksha mantra and,
how does one progress towards the next steps.
All those will be skilfully and systematically approached by the qualified retreat guide. Come attend this week long retreat and give yourself the opportunity to advance your practice to the next levels of depth in your journey towards the center of consciousness.
“The mantra in meditation is that thought which replaces the knife cutting edge of all rational and emotional associations so that the mind may come to a center.” - Swami Veda Bharati
