Welcome to our week-long Shaktipat Meditation retreat!

Give Us 7 Days and We’ll Give You The Proved Methods To Attain Happiness, Joy, Inner Peace and Well-Being Through Our Siddha Science.

“Oh Khusrau, the river of Love runs in strange directions. One who jumps into it drowns, and one who drowns, gets across.” ~ The Poet Saint, Amir Khusrau

Love is Supreme. This is so because Love in its untainted form is an ocean of Joy. The experience of the indescribable Joy of the Self is God’s Love and God’s Grace. With this experience, so many Blessings follow. In a world increasingly mad with greed and maniacal egoism, a world where Human Dignity is often forgotten, now is the time for each and every one of us to drown in the ocean of Joy that is inherent in our true nature.  We all need Love and what the world needs now, more than ever is Love.

You do not need to leave your church, temple or mosque to imbibe the methods taught in our Shaktipat retreats. These methods are part of our Siddha Science that brings freedom from fear, doubt, worry, anxiety, frustration, anger, depression, cynicism, sarcasm, lust and the corruption of greed.  This science delivers you to the daily, moment-to-moment indescribable Joy and Love of the Self.

Weeklong Shaktipat Meditation Retreat

Love cannot be known without the experience of Joy that is the Bliss of the Self. In this weeklong retreat we will examine and experience the means to find Joy in every moment, in every situation and circumstance, in every event, in every episode of life, while increasing our ability to experience and express the Supreme Love of the true heart.

In this week-long retreat methods for the following will be taught:

  • How to access and drown in Joy.
  • How to Love unconditionally, even when boundaries to interacting are necessary.
  • How to understand and express Compassion.
  • How to imbibe Kedarji’s 4 Pillars of Joy In Daily Living; the Spiritual Power, Improved Mental State, Emotional Resilience and Vibrant Health.
  • How To Conquer the Ego That Gives Rise to Fear, Anxiety, Unhappiness and Lack of Well-Being – How to Do So With Indescribable Joy and Fearlessness.
  • How to Face Chaos With Love.
  • The Path to Victory Over the Restless Mind and the Nagging Senses.
  • How to Become Established In A Lifestyle In Which Your Experience of Bliss Is a Regular, and Then Constant Occurrence.

This week-long Shaktipat Meditation retreat will include instruction in methods for applying Kedarji’s 4 Pillars of Joy In Daily Living to your life.

**This 7-day retreat will culminate in Kedarji’s Shaktipat Blessing, our weekend Shaktipat Blessing retreat honoring Bhagawan Nityananda of Ganeshpuri and the miracle of His Grace. For this reason, this intensive is named The Miracle Intensive.

“There is a place within us that is so nurturing and sacred, so awesome that it burns away all that we are not.  Bhagawan Nityananda refers to this sacred space as the Heart.  He says it is the hub of all sacred places and that we should roam there.  This is what we will be doing in the week-long retreat.”  ~ Kedarji

**In this very short period of time, you can renew your spiritual practice and lifestyle by reigniting the flame of your enthusiasm.  In this way, your longing for an existence imbued with the Love of the True Heart will increase.  This happens by coming into contact with other devoted seekers and Kedarji’s adept companionship as our spiritual leader.

This 7-day Shaktipat meditation retreat will culminate in Kedarji’s Shaktipat Blessing.  This is our annual weekend Shaktipat Meditation intensive honoring Bhagawan Nityananda of Ganeshpuri and the miracle of His Grace.  For this reason, this intensive is named The Miracle Intensive.
