March 6 - 10, 2013

Location: Kindred Spirits Retreat Center

Invite yourself to bathe in the beauty of silence. Let all effort fall away and lead you back to the one source, to the unbridled joy that is our very essence. What your mind calls problems can be the vehicle to open up your heart. By looking into the flame of suffering, and loving it tenderly, you will be guided towards grace, towards self-blessing. 

There is nothing to learn, nothing to change nothing to attain. In our deep meditations and open conversations, we can relax into pure being, without straining. Come back to the natural freedom of your truest heart, to your one abiding friend, Love.

Based on the non-dual teachings of Ramana Maharshi, our journey of self-discovery is simple and direct, and welcomes anyone who seeks gentle guidance towards grace. Participants are encouraged to attend the complete Intensive.

Since Satsang is fluid the schedule above may vary some. Please plan to arrive with a comfortable amount of time to get settled for the Silent Sitting which will always begin at the designated times.

Seating is casual. Feel free to bring your own meditation chair and/or pillows in order to add to your comfort during the silent sitting.  There are chairs provided which have arms but no padding.  While it is important to be still during meditation this does not mean that you cannot move quietly or take care of yourself as needed. Please bring a towel to put under your chair.

Sitting with Devaji boils down to being in the crucible of a deep and intimate relationship with Truth. The grace of the fire is that everything previously hidden becomes seen. It arises and is met with the deep and passionate love of a master who lives for our freedom . This is the heart of Devaji's service, to be this force of truth in the lives of those really committed to awakening, in a hands-on way, where the personal relationship and smaller group arena is the framework for where the spiritual rubber meets the road.
