Young People Retreat with the Siddha Yoga Shaktipat Intensive
Saturday & Sunday, November 9 & 10, 2019
9:30 a.m. - 6:30 p.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 of this year’s Shaktipat Intensive is

The Power of the Mind—Matrika Shakti
