Siddha Yoga Sadhana Retreat
Siddha Yoga Sadhana Retreats provide an environment for committed Siddha Yoga students to explore and strengthen their spiritual practice over the course of 6 days.
Elements of the retreat daily schedule:
- Guided learning sessions with a Siddha Yoga Meditation Teacher
- Hatha Yoga
- Personal study and reflection
The retreats are for up to 25 students. This helps maintain a focused atmosphere and allows for optimal interaction between students and the teachers of the retreat.
Retreat participants also practice silence as a spiritual discipline. In the golden light of this silence, participants can see more deeply into the nature of their own meditative experience.
Retreat sites in Mexico, Europe, and the United States—for example Boston—are supportive environments for students' focused engagement with the Siddha Yoga teachings and practices.
The Siddha Yoga Sadhana Retreat has been a transformational vehicle of grace for me. In the Retreat, as we were immersed in the practices and in Gurumayi’s Message, a sweet sense of contentment enveloped my deepening understanding of who I am.
The retreat experience remains with me now. When I take time to focus on what I learned there, I am drawn deep inside. I start my day with a feeling of contentment, and all my interactions in my daily life are informed by my taking time each morning to connect with that contentment in meditation.
I am so grateful for the gift of the Sadhana Retreat.

I recently participated in the new Siddha Yoga Sadhana Retreat Immerse Yourself in Gurumayi's Message for 2019
in the Siddha Yoga Ashram in Boston. To have six full days to meditate, explore Gurumayi's Message through each of the Siddha Yoga practices in the magnificently designed retreat schedule, to bathe in silence—it was all simply divine!
I emerged from the retreat feeling like a new person, experiencing a divine confidence and unshakeable connection to the Self. Since participating in the retreat, I find I am approaching each part of my day with a new understanding of Gurumayi’s Message and a rekindled and heightened awareness of the power of the Siddha Yoga practices. This is how I want to be in the world—contributing peace, productivity, calm, clarity, and conviction!
Thank you, Gurumayi, for this new Siddha Yoga Sadhana Retreat.

Participating in the Siddha Yoga Sadhana Retreat has been a milestone in my sadhana
. Before the retreat, I thought that to experience the Self I needed to have a dramatic experience. I found that I was waiting for something big
to happen. Then, during the retreat, I realized that these expectations had prevented me from being aware of the different, subtle ways in which the Self manifests—in a few seconds of quiet calmness, in the breath that becomes even and deep, in a feeling of joy emerging out of the blue.
Noticing all this has brought about a big shift for me. Now I pay attention to and value the moments in meditation, and beyond, when I am aware of the presence of the Self. I finally understand that by recognizing the Self manifesting in the most subtle experiences, I strengthen my ability to know that I am worthy of the gift of God’s presence in any moment.
