Satori Transmission Workshop

The Satori Transmission Workshop is a rare opportunity in the world today, whereby the Spiritual Master transmits a taste of the enlightened state to the recipient.

It doesn’t matter who we are, where we come from, or what our goals are in life—deep down we are all searching for this Satori state, whether we know it or not. It’s a state of lightness, tranquility, strength, bliss and freedom. We spend our whole lifetime looking for this indirectly in our own ways—through success, fame, fortune, relationships, travel, sports, meditation and other achievements. In this sense, it is the ultimate state to experience in our human existence.

It is Sri Avinash’s deep wish for everybody to have a direct taste of this state through his Satori Transmission, to remind them of the ultimate goal of the spiritual path and human life. To experience this state is truly a rare blessing that many years of searching and meditation may not necessarily bring. When we are able to experience this state, a deep peace will overflow from within us and we will glow in bliss, joy and contentment—a feeling of meeting our own ancient soul, a sense of coming home again.

White Tickets are included as part of the standard retreat registration. The White Ticket includes the group Satori Transmissions and the benefit of the full workshop. It does not include the one-on-one Transmission from Sri Avinash. If you wish to experience a one-on-one Transmission please book a Red Ticket.

The Red Ticket is an optional add-on which can be selected in your booking form for an additional cost. The Red Ticket includes the White Ticket, plus the one-on-one Satori Transmission from Sri Avinash during the workshop.

Red Tickets are limited, so do book early to secure your place.
