USA Meditation Retreats with Baba Shiva Rudra Balayogi
May 3 to May 5, Hegewald Rock Creek Center, Stevenson, WA
May 31 to June 7, Ananda Ashram, Monroe, NY
Baba Shiva Rudra Balayogi will be conducting two meditation intensive retreats in the United States this year: one in the beautiful Columbia River Gorge, Stevenson, WA, May 3 to 5; the second at Ananda Ashram, Monroe, NY, May 31 to June 7.
A Rare Opportunity
Meditation retreats with Shiva Rudra Balayogi are a rare opportunity to receive guidance and inspiration from a true spiritual master. They emphasize deep meditation, rejuvenation, spiritual knowledge and Self discovery - a time to turn off all devices, withdraw from our daily routine and dedicate ourselves to discovering peace within.
Shiva Rudra Balayogi is a masterful teacher who generously shares the wisdom of Self-Realization with all who wish to learn. Even if not a single word is spoken, sitting in the stillness of Baba’s presence is itself an enlightening experience.
A Key to Inner Peace
Meditation retreats provide an ideal environment for extending your meditation practice. To advance spirituality, it is essential to quiet the mind and experience expanded states of consciousness within ourselves. Direct personal experience accompanied with true spiritual knowledge sustains every sincere seeker's quest.
An essential message of Baba’s teaching is: People are suffering because they have forgotten the liberating Truth of who they are. Among the thousands of thoughts that appear in our busy mind each day, there is one thing which is not a thought - our consciousness of existing. The silent witness to the mind is the true Self. Direct experience of this fundamental reality brings peace and contentment to our life. By silencing the mind with meditation you may come face to face with the truth of existence, a state of consciousness in which supreme peace is the reality.
Beginning or Advanced - Attend Any Part
Whether just beginning or practicing meditation for years, you are invited to attend any portion of the retreat - even if only for a few hours or a single long meditation. The meditation Baba used for Self Realization (Jangama Dhyana) may be learned at the retreat - there is no charge. So much can be gained with so little effort. We hope you can attend.
