A long weekend of rejuvenation, healing and transformation

Retreats are an opportunity to go deeper within and be immersed in the wisdom of timeless teachings and the loving presence of a spiritual Master. In the beauty of nature, and away from the busyness and distractions of everyday life, we are more able to find peace of mind and reconnect with our Self.

Join Sri Avinash as he guides us on a journey back to our true nature where we feel a sense of vitality and aliveness at the core of our being. The extensive programs are designed to heal, rejuvenate and awaken love and joy within you.

The Awakening Love and Joy retreat is a weekend of life-changing teachings, powerful healing, meditation and mindfulness masterclass, mantra workshop, time for inner silence and personal reflection, and much more—all in the majestic Blue Mountains. You will also have the opportunity to experience the rare Satori Transmission—where the Master transmits power and universal source energy to the student.

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.
