Meditation Retreats

I wanted to offer a 'special thanks' for your care, concern and Love for us all. Where else does one go to consider things like forgiveness, generosity, virtue, reflection on what constitutes a meaningful life? It is a rare experience (and I am witnessing it being a treasured one) to see what might really be going on, that we don’t know, and that might just raise enough consciousness to allow for Love to prevail...not the body/mind. 'Tis a fine, fine thing you do for us. Just wanted to express my gratitude and Love. ~ Alfrieda, CA

March 13-17, 2023 – Mt Madonna CA

We will move into one of the most powerful experiences there can be…the LIGHT. What is this Light? It is the ultimate wisdom of Love. This Love has nothing to do with emotionality. The Light that lives within us transforms and transcends beyond the personage of a person. We will no longer think of ourselves as a person who lives through and by a human body.

Siraj will take you on a journey that will never end, into the realm of a Presence that is greater than our human mind can offer. In this Light, which you can live as throughout your lifetime, you will realize the effort of spiritual awakening beyond the beliefs and ideals you have read about. You will have the actual opportunity to live in the Light for all Eternity here in this form.

Siraj will present the immortal teachings of the great Masters and offer you the chance to live “beyond the beyond” as the Buddha taught. This is a once-in-a-lifetime event not to be missed.
