We cordially invite you to join Amma Sri Karunamayi for a one-day silent meditation retreat in Los Angeles, CA.  All meditators, from beginners to those with an established practice, will benefit from the special retreat atmosphere.  Retreats consist of periods of silent meditation, pranayama, and yoga asanas which are interspersed with Amma’s inspiring discourses and blissful bhajans (spiritual chanting). In the peaceful atmosphere of the retreat, Amma teaches the deeper significance of kundalini, the chakra system, Sanskrit chants, mantras, and the enlightened philosophy of Sanatana Dharma.

Many who have attended retreats with Amma in the past have experienced that simply being in her presence had a powerful transformative effect on their daily practice of meditation. People from many different religions and spiritual paths have attended, and have found their own faith deepened and enhanced. As Amma often says, “Be in your own faith, travel on your own path, but elevate more and more in that path.” This retreat will provide a very precious opportunity to all who want to deepen their spiritual practice and travel ever higher on whatever spiritual path they have chosen. Anyone who wishes to learn about meditation or deepen their meditative practice is most welcome to attend.

Amma has specially designed her one-day meditation retreats so that all who attend will derive the most benefit. For this purpose, participants are requested to maintain silence throughout the retreat.
