Throughout this retreat, Gangaji offers you her deepest support and guidance in meeting yourself fully.
Santa Sabina Center is a unique, sacred space dedicated “to the contemplative way of being.” This oasis of quiet is a place to truly seek refuge in the silence of your own being as you embark on a deep inner dive of self-discovery.
With Self-Inquiry, Gangaji will guide and support you throughout the retreat in turning your attention away from your thoughts and into the direct experience of what is always here - peace itself, consciousness itself.
In daily meetings with Gangaji, your questions and reports are welcome and essential to the vitality of the retreat.
Our time together may also include meditation and video presentations.
Watch a short video presentation to hear more from Gangaji about what retreat offers.
Everyone is required to check in, whether your accommodations are on-site or off-site. Retreatants arriving after 6:30 PM will register after the meeting with Gangaji.
