Yoga Vacation Program
March 6 — 10, 2024

Presence of Siva, the Great Self of All

Non-dual Kashmir Saivism

Menas Kafatos

Join us as we examine the great philosophical tradition of Kashmir Saivism and its relevance to our lives. Lord Siva, the Great Self of All, is the inner non-dual reality, the presence and source of spiritual fulfillment for seekers. Siva as the Self, and Shakti as the Universal Energy who creates countless worlds, are inseparable, the eternal complementary truths of existence.

Participants will learn about the non-dual aspects of Saivism, its relevance to modern life, science, and connections to Advaita Vedanta. Come explore the relevance of these ancient teachings, the profound truths, and the everyday practices of awareness. The combination of these three will be of practical usefulness in today’s world with all the challenges that seekers encounter.

Offered as 3 satsangs and 3 workshops (subject to change).

The presentations associated with this Yoga Vacation Program begin with an 8pm satsang on the first day of the program and conclude with a 90-minute noon workshop on the last day of the program.  Click here to read more about the Yoga Vacation Program details and view the ashram schedule for yoga classes and meals during your stay.
