"The Atman, the sun of knowledge that rises in the heart, destroys the darkness of ignorance, pervades and sustains all, shines by itself and also makes everything shine."
–Adi Shankaracharya, treatise on Self-Knowledge

Engage in teachings and practices for remaining steadfast on the path, living in the highest way, and fully embracing the opportunity of a lifetime. We will draw from Adi Shankaracharya’s 68-verse Treatise on Self-knowledge along with inspiration from the gurus in our tradition: Roy Eugene Davis, Paramahansa Yogananda, Sri Yukteswar, and Lahiri Mahasaya.

Retreat includes:

  • Contemplation of higher realities and the way of spiritual awakening for fulfilling our divine destiny and living skillfully
  • Essential Kriya Yoga meditation practices for disciples
  • Spacious schedule for immersion in meditation, contemplation,
    and strategies for healthy living

During this retreat, Yogacharya will share stories and teachings from her forty years with her Guru, Roy Eugene Davis, a direct disciple of Paramahansa Yogananda. With her guidance, learn how to attune your consciousness to the gurus in the lineage and benefit from their lives and presence.

    This retreat is being livestreamed online for all participants. We are also offering a hybrid option to attend some of the retreat onsite, which includes the Thursday evening opening session, morning sessions, lunch, and afternoon sessions. Morning meditation, hatha yoga, and Friday evening sessions will be online only for all participants.

    Overnight Option: Give yourself a truly immersive retreat experience and apply to stay onsite at CSE overnight and attend all sessions in person. Limited space available. (APPLY HERE)
