Amma says that it is good to dedicate at least one day a month entirely to your Sadhana.

  • About Ashta Sadhana Retreat

    Over the years, Amma has compassionately blessed us all with a variety of highly powerful spiritual practices.

    The significance of these Sadhanas are extremely profound.

    In the Ashta Sadhana Retreat, we will be exploring, understanding and absorbing the profound significance of eight of these Sadhanas, in a full day retreat.

    The sessions will consist of a mix of live sessions with Swami Atmananda Puri and pre-recorded videos of his prior retreat conducted in Amritapuri.

  • Benefits

    "Children, It’s good to set apart at least one day in a month and dedicate it fully for spiritual practices" - Amma

    This full day retreat will help you practically implement this loving instruction from Amma, by giving you a template for your own monthly sadhana holiday.

  • How does it work

    The intention of this retreat is that you can have a similar experience to those who take them in the Amritapuri Ashram.

    For this reason it is recommended that you set aside a full day for the Ashta Sadhana Retreat to ensure that you get the intended experience.

    Once enrolled, you will have access to the replay of the on-demand retreat for 9 days.
