A WEEKEND OF MEDITATION, WISDOM AND EMPOWERMENT
In this program you will come to learn about the original meaning and purpose of meditation and how it can help you achieve lasting inner peace, and the full realization of your highest creative power. Whether you are an experienced yogi, or simply discovering the gift of meditation, this weekend will inspire and empower you to move forward with hope and greater clarity and purpose toward the fulfilment of your true heart’s highest destiny.
Meditation has been the core practice of virtually all of the world’s great wisdom traditions for thousands of years. Yet it is a practice that is often misunderstood, especially today. Set in the mountains of Southern Costa Rica, the Sat Yoga Institute and Ashram offers you an ideal setting to experience the transformative power of meditation.
Spend three days and two nights in a magical spiritual refuge, filled with the healing energies of peace, beauty and joy. Be guided by Shunyamurti, a meditation master and the founder and director of the Sat Yoga Institute. Since 2002, the Institute has had a prominent presence in Costa Rica’s evolving spiritual landscape, serving as a resource of spiritual and psychological knowledge for a great many seekers from around the world.
The weekend begins on Friday afternoon and ends on Sunday morning. It includes powerful teachings, silent morning meditation sittings, as well as other forms of meditative practice; silent walks; guided meditations as well as kirtan, singing devotional music and chanting ofmantras.
The vibrant peace of the Ashram, and the joyful energy of the community of yogis that inhabit this sacred space, will naturally take you into a state of peaceful relaxation, from which you can dive deep within, and connect with the power of the inner silence, the power meditation.
Nestled among flourishing gardens and cloud forests, our six comfortable bhavans (spiritual abodes), offer an ideal environment to embark on a profound inner journey. Each simple, yet tastefully designed, room provides comfortable sleeping space for one to three, with private single rooms often available upon request for a supplemental fee.
Our accommodations offer pleasant and spacious shared bathrooms as well as private balconies and large windows that overlook the natural beauty of the surrounding forests and gardens. The soothing sounds of flowing water and sweet songs of native birds (and sometimes the awesome howls of monkeys!) provide the perfect conditions for meditation and relaxation.
Mouth watering vegetarian and vegan meals that are integral to our ashram life and retreats. In our retreat we serve three hearty meals each day plus snacks. Dishes are created from organic produce grown in our own gardens or sourced from neighboring farms, or when necessary brought from the local feria (farmers market).
