Join Shunyamurti, founder and director of the Sat Yoga Ashram, for a weekend of meditation, wisdom, and empowerment. Spend three days and two nights in a magical, spiritual refuge, of peace and natural beauty in the misty mountains of Pérez Zeledón.

This program consists of profound wisdom teachings on the subjects of meditation and inner-development, several silent-and-guided-meditations, yoga asanas, ashram tours and opportunities to meet and share with like-minded souls in the beautiful natural setting of the Sat Yoga Ashram in the misty mountains of Pérez Zeledón, Costa Rica.

The secrets of miraculous healing love that you will learn at this sacred mountain refuge will transform your reality forever.

Study and Meditation Ashram Immersion Program:

A 10-day or 4-week Ashram Immersion Program 10-Day Program: June 7 - 16, 2019 4-Week Program: June 7 - July 4, 2019

Find clarity in your life, develop your meditation practice, heal yourself from suffering and discover your inner Self.

The Sat Yoga Ashram Immersion is a carefully developed program of practical spiritual wisdom classes, several daily meditation sittings, and full immersion in community life.

An ashram immersion offers you a sacred space to heal and transform. An ashram is the most ancient archetypal form of community. It is a refuge for Spirit to flourish, a pilgrimage center in which the highest wisdom is offered, and the most sublime values are lived and shared with all.
