The ashram is open for all initiates to enjoy a period of time recharging and reconnecting during the Sannyasa Sadhana Initiates Retreat. This two week seva and sadhana retreat is an opportunity to exercise and practice some of the unique benefits of your initiation. Reconnect with your spiritual community (Sangha); deepen your understanding of the tantric teachings, the tradition and yourself.
There will be two parts to the fortnight.
The first week will be primarily dedicated to seva and ashram lifestyle. The second week (June 9–13) will have the additional component of the Mahavidya sadhana. Seva practiced in week one is an important aspect of preparation for the Mahavidya Sadhana.
The Mahavidya Sadhana is a special 5 day sadhana, to get to know and connect with the ten goddesses of the Tantric Mahavidyas. In tantra, the Mahavidyas (greatest wisdoms) are known through ten aspects of Devi. Over the week, these ten aspects will be invoked through havan, mantra, yantra, mandala, kirtan and discussion.
