Sat Yoga Ashram Retreats For the past 12 years, the Sat Yoga Institute has been offering seminars and retreats to seekers from around the world. Our retreats, held every six weeks, are designed to offer a balance of inner and outer activities. There is time for silent and guided meditation, for questions and answers... time for asanas, for walks through forests, to bathe in a clear, invigorating mountain stream, blessed with majestic waterfalls... time for heart-melting music, for sharing poetry and the thrill of improvisational drama, for drawing and painting. And of course there is time to simply relax, to enjoy the delicious vegetarian food, mostly grown in our gardens and cooked in our gourmet kitchen. There is time to read, to journal, to reflect... time to be alone and time for lively conversation. There is time to enter the Timeless.
Shunyamurti is a masterful guide, creating the perfect ambience for healing and renewal. His background includes doctorates in psychology and law; advanced work in Jungian and Lacanian analysis; decades of practice as a healer; ten years as a monk; deep and extensive entheogenic shamanic practice; profound realization of non-duality; a lifetime of integrating the paths of East and West, to unravel the knots in postmodern consciousness.
