Shaktipat Retreat

April 27-29 2018

Downingtown Yoga & Meditation Center, Downingtown PA

The profound inward path of Svaroopa® Vidya begins with you receiving shaktipat diksha, which is the initiation that awakens your Kundalini energy for the highest purpose of human life — the knowing of your own divine Self. Kundalini is the spiritual power that is hidden within every human being, though only a small percentage seek what She offers. Honored as the divine feminine and the power of creation and revelation, when awakened by the Guru, Kundalini climbs your spine from tail to top. She is the force underlying the power and ease of all the Svaroopa® sciences designed and taught by Swami Nirmalananda.

In this weekend meditation retreat, Swami Nirmalananda formally gives shaktipat to every person there. She is a Kundalini master, initiated and authorized to transmit this powerful initiation. She explains the process and purpose as well as how you cooperate with the inner force that is burning within you, in-light-ening you day by day.

Come early and join us for the Half-Day Workshop: Flowing Inward at 2:00 pm on April 27th.

Seeking & Finding 

You have an ability to get lost in things — events, situations and other people. It is your own Divine Self that you are losing.  Shaktipat opens you up to your own Self again, so you may live in the inner knowing.
