Young People Retreat with the Siddha Yoga Shaktipat Intensive
Saturday & Sunday, November 10 & 11, 2018

Orientation (for first time participants)
October 27 and November 17, 8:00 a.m. - 8:30 a.m.

The Siddha Yoga Shaktipat Intensive is the primary vehicle through which Gurumayi Chidvilasananda bestows shaktipat-diksha, the initiation through which a Siddha Guru awakens the spiritual energy within a human being. This transmission of divine energy takes place throughout the day as participants chant, meditate, and receive Gurumayi’s teachings in the sacred environment of the Intensive.

This awakening marks the beginning of a profound process of transformation. By engaging in the Siddha Yoga teachings and practices after receiving shaktipat-diksha, a Siddha Yoga student learns to recognize and experience the blissful and all-pervasive Self within their own being and all of creation.

For those who have previously participated in a Shaktipat Intensive, each subsequent Intensive connects you anew with the ever-fresh, ever-blissful experience of the Self.

The title that Gurumayi has given for the Siddha Yoga Shaktipat Intensive 2018 in Honor of Baba Muktananda's Mahasamadhi:

Who am I?

This is the fundamental question for seekers of Self-knowledge. In the coming months, you may begin to reflect on this powerful title. Contemplate how you would answer this question. As you repeat it aloud or inwardly, notice where your attention goes. And ask yourself how it connects to Gurumayi’s Message for 2018: Satsang.
