Let us join together to explore the freedom of Nondual Spiritual Awakening. During this intimate retreat, Craig will offer satsang, meditation periods, and inquiry into the depth of awakened experience. Come with an open and humble heart, and explore what you are beyond your limited egoic nature. Retreat is a unique opportunity to drop your daily constraints and to realize a profound silence which is eternally present in all of our lives. From this space of silence, we will join together in satsang and explore the direct experience of true nature, vast open and free.

After the savasana, I speak about the secret of yoga and the necessity of yoga practice, as well as offer teachings on Prayer.
