You and the group will stay at your own ashram with your own kitchen, only a 10-minute walk from Ramana Maharshi's Ashram. You will be superbly safe and well cared.


John David is a direct disciple of Papaji, who in turn was a disciple of the Indian Saint Sri Ramana Maharshi. Sri Ramana spent most of his life at Arunachala, a powerful place of self-inquiry and realization for thousands of years. Today people from all over the world are drawn to the silent and powerful energy of this place, where the self is more easily felt.

Free of any spiritual concepts or ideas, you will explore the reality of life. In this transformative field, perception changes what has always been there appearing and reveals itself as silence, joy, and love.

Have your own deep experience with self-inquiry, which will be a focus of the retreat. This is one of the benefits you get from the retreat as you can take this into your daily life.
