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

July 13-15, 2023 – Pacific Grove, CA

One of the most powerful Retreats is our summer gathering. We will be working upon the Light of the Heart and how to live in Silence. Only in the Silence do we find the deep awakening that sustains consciousness.

This year, Siraj will be offering meditations that open up the third eye and allow for the impression of insight. Your presence will be important for the sake of your own awakening into Love. Everything we do is about the Love that sets us free.

If you are planning to be with us, it is important that you are with Siraj at Workshops in May. In these important offerings, Siraj offers insights that will be important for each student to consider for Retreats.

This is our year of Light…join us!

The cost for this Retreat is $425 per person (lunch is included each day). We meet at the Center For Spiritual Awakening located at 522 Central Avenue in Pacific Grove, CA. The Center provides comfortable chairs that are well suited for sitting quietly in meditation – so there is no need to bring your own chair unless you prefer to do so.
