Swami Sankarananda

About The Teacher

“I am a simple pilgrim. I’ve walked across the USA for these past two and a half years and now travel from town to town in a tiny motorhome emblazoned with the telling words “Yoga for Peace”. I serve the divine in all and support our universal journey to find the happiness and peace for which we search.

My path has taken me through India and Sannyasa (renunciation of lower “self”) of the great teacher Adi Sankaracharya’s, and more recently Sri Swami Sivanandaji’s “Saraswati” lineage, thus I am called a “Swami”. I honor equally all beings, faiths and paths. There is but one Truth that all of the great teachers speak of and each of us are children of that Truth. The goal of each of us is finally to know Peace, which is attained internally through purification and relinquishment reaching equanimity of mind (variously called Yoga, Surrender, Submission, Faith, Selflessness, etc) and externally through abiding kindness.

I travel to offer kindness, to inspire, to demonstrate living in Peace, and to share the ancient and universal teachings of Yoga through talks, workshops and practices. The guidance is practical, it includes some philosophy, examples and stories and focuses on practices that you can implement to bring peace and joy into your life.”

Why Retreat?

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

My last retreat at SMC was so inspiring and so relaxing. But i'd love to have more time there to spend at the Stupa, visit the Kami shrine, and generally interact with the beautiful enlightened society happening on that entire land. Brett

Retreat Guru's Vision

We believe human beings are innately wise, strong and kind. This wisdom, although not always experienced, is always present. Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
