Sukaishi David

About The Teacher

Beginning from age 17, Sukaishi David today has a 46-year history of practicing and teaching deep meditation, organic diet and holistic health lifestyles.

A real life "Indiana Jones," Sukaishi trekked the globe to discover the classic, hidden teachings of OJAYA Deep Meditation.

By 1980, Sukaishi had already learned and practiced a number of techniques for years when he first encountered his teacher, Sri Sri Ravi Shankar in Delhi, India, from whom he learned many advanced secrets.

Sri Sri advised Sukaishi to "teach meditation to the world" as his life's work.

Sukaishi travelled the world with Sri Sri in the early days of the Art of Living Foundation, which has now grown to be an enormous international organization with millions of followers — one of the largest independent, humanitarian non-governmental organizations (NGOs) in the world, holding a special consultative status with the Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) of the United Nations.

After years of teaching courses on meditation and breath practices, giving dharma talks, volunteer service, book writing, heading the Art of Living Center of Kauai, Hawaii — and appointment by Sri Sri as President of Art of Living USA in the summer of 2000 — Sukaishi retired from his services to embark on fresh new adventures with his preeminent love ...

... to explore and discover rare secrets of deep meditation which remain perpetually concealed from the casual tourist or trekker.

His life and travels in India and Nepal eventually brought him to the supreme and closely-guarded technique of OJAYA Deep Meditation, and later, the founding of the not-for-profit OJAYA Dharma Sangha in the Earthborn Rainforest, where the teachings are now streamed as an online Course for all who wish to learn its secrets.

      If I could, I would give it 6 out of 5 stars!

    I'm 65 and this is the best thing I've ever done for myself. Ojaya Deep Meditation has had a profound impact on my life. I shudder to think where I would be without it, especially in these times. Setting aside those Ojaya moments during the day has become such a special treat; I cannot help but feel refreshed and restored. No less important though is Sukaishi David’s message of love, peace, and healing. What a game changer it has all been for me and I cherish this wonderful gift. I plan to continue on with any course offerings he will have in the future.

Why Retreat?

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

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.
