About us

Description

The ancient Rishis or seers, having delved into the depths of their being, closely analyzed all of the layers of the human existence. In this process of self-inquiry, they discovered that in essence we are but pure consciousness, and various factors and conditionings cloud our vision and hide this truth. They laid out practices for clarifying our vision so we too can have this first-hand knowledge. Yogic disciplines have been prescribed as preparatory practices, for purifying the heart and balancing the mind. For unveiling the deeper truths, Vedanta has been prescribed.

Vedanta claims that one of the most misunderstood words in our language is “I”. We take its meaning for granted without any analysis. Why is this an issue? Our mistaken identification with the body-mind complex and our circumstances causes us much unnecessary suffering! Many other phenomena are thoroughly analyzed by us, but we don’t inquire into the inquirer itself. Various Vedantic methodologies are prescribed for discerning who it is experiencing the world through this body-mind-sense complex. Vedanta offers a three-step system for gaining this understanding – Shravanam or listening to the Upanishadic teachings from an experienced teacher, Mananam or reflecting on them to help clarify our doubts, and Nididhyasanam or meditating upon these truths.

In this weekend intensive we will introduce the Vedantic system of Self-inquiry and a few classical methodologies to help deepen our understanding of this universal vision.

This weekend intensive will help clarify the roles of Yoga and Vedanta in our spiritual journey, and deepen our understanding on the Vedantic vision.

Why Retreat?

We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:

To find peace and renewal while going through a huge change in my life. Empty nest and the end of a 27 year marriage all at once. Susan
 

Retreat Guru's Vision
