In the Global Siddha Yoga Shaktipat Intensive, the Siddha Yoga Guru, Gurumayi Chidvilasananda, bestows the inestimable gift of shaktipat diksha, the awakening of the inner spiritual energy. This sacred initiation begins a seeker's sadhana, the journey leading to the goal of becoming established in the constant awareness of our divine nature—the Supreme Self.

Each Shaktipat Intensive you participate in gives momentum to your journey, strengthens your sadhana, and expands your awareness of the divine Self.
