Discover the true meaning of surrender and access the spontaneous joy of life through Kriya Yoga and meditation.

Guided by meditation master Kambiz Naficy, you practice yoga asanas (with modifications as necessary), deep relaxation techniques, and Kriya breathing meditations each morning and afternoon to cleanse and revitalize your chakras and your 72,000 energy channels (nadis).

Through daily inspirational talks, you also:

  • Enliven your Kundalini energy
  • Penetrate the laws of metaphisics and manifesting
  • Awaken to yourself, no matter where you are in life
  • Understand the role of grace and self-love
  • Explore spanda, the throb of consciousness in the universe
  • Learn how nondual spirituality can be a part of your everyday life

This retreat is best suited to those with some previous meditation experience who are looking to access profound serenity, awe, unbounded energy, and love.
