Siddha Yoga Sadhana Retreat

Immerse Yourself in Gurumayi's Message for 2019

October 19 - 26, 2019

This year, as you engage in the daily schedule of meditation, study, silence, and other Siddha Yoga practices traditionally offered by these retreats, you will also immerse yourself in the exploration of Gurumayi's Message for this year. Throughout the six days of the retreat, your practice of Siddha Yoga sadhana will take place in the light of the Guru's words.

By reflecting on and applying Gurumayi's Message in the sacred retreat environment, you'll be able to return home having strengthened your alignment with the powerful guidance Gurumayi has given to light our way through the year.

The retreat begins with the Siddha Yoga Shaktipat Intensive on Saturday, October 19.

Visit the Siddha Yoga path website at www.siddhayoga.org for more information about Sweet Surprise 2019, in which Gurumayi gives her Message for the year.
