ONLINE Shaktipat Retreat

With Gurudevi Nirmalanda

September 30 - October 2 2022


Also available On-Site

Your spiritual progress is accelerated by receiving Maha-Shaktipat Diksha.  This is the initiation that awakens your Kundalini energy for the highest purpose of human life — the knowing of your own Divine Self.

“It is a unique and extraordinary experience. It creates powerful and positive changes in your mind, body and life.” 
— Kelly S.

“Very deep spiritual experience.  Excellent program.” — Kristine F.

“Absolutely wonderful spiritual experience. I was so honored to meet such a great Guru and Kundalini Master; this is a truly life changing experience.”  — Alena T.

Consciousness resides in its fullness within every human being.  This cosmic power of creation and revelation, in her hidden aspect, is called “Kundalini.”  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 taught by Satguru Swami Nirmalananda (Gurudevi).

You receive formal Shaktipat initiation from Gurudevi two times in this weekend meditation retreat. 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.

Your online program begins the process with an informative orientation package, which comes about two days before your weekend begins.  Find out what you can do to get the most benefit, including planning your vegetarian meals and personal time as well as having time with the others in the weekend. 

The profound inward path of Svaroopa® Vidya Meditation begins with Shaktipat.  Discover a whole new dimension to your own being and learn tools that help you bring that into your life.

Svaroopa® Yoga

Beyond your Limitations 

The quality of life is not based on how much you do but on how much you let go; not on how far you go, but on how open and easy you are. Svaroopa® yoga dissolves physical limitations as well as mental, emotional and spiritual blocks, to open up the way you live inside your own skin.
