Going Deeper: A Focused Meditation Retreat

Jan 25 - 29, 2019


This small group experience is devoted to a deeper level of meditation and purification for people who already have some knowledge of meditation and yoga.

To support the mind in turning inward, we utilize a simple diet, the observance of silence, and a cave-like atmosphere of seclusion. A number of hours each day are devoted to spiritual practices (sadhana) created specifically for this retreat by Baba Hari Dass. The sadhana includes meditation, pranayama (breathing practices), and asana (postures). Devotional rituals, chanting, and spiritual stories also form part of this special experience. Enrollment is limited so please register early.

First time participants, please email goingdeeper@mountmadonna.org for a detailed explanation about this program.
