STUDY: Drawing from the sacred revelations given by Swamiji, we will examine a number of important texts central to the philosophy of this great tradition,  Kashmir Shaivism. At the same time, we will acquaint ourselves with the core principles and practices given by Swamiji for the attainment of the supreme reality about which he speaks.

SPIRITUAL PRACTICE: We will examine the fundamental elements and principles inherent in meditation and other forms of spiritual practice found in the tradition of Kashmir Shaivism, at the same time seeing how these fundamentals and principles are found in the practices contained in the Vijñāna Bhairava.

On each day of the retreat, we will experience different meditations and other practical techniques to quiet the mind and expand awareness.
