At some point in our life, everybody asks why there is no meaning in life. Why there is no peace and harmony in life. We all despair sometimes about what to do with those emotions which are so destructive in our life – the emotions that destroy our relations with others, affect our attitude and behavior and harm our physical and emotional wellbeing. Usually, we repress them or dump them on someone else, both of which are very destructive or trying to replace them with positive ones which are only skin deep. However, we have no idea what transformation truly means, and how to transform them. Knowingly or unknowingly we are continuously looking for the solution of it but we don’t have any access to the main source of answers. Just imagine how it will feel to be the master of your emotional life, joy, and peace rather than constantly feel like the pawn of other people and situations.

Meditation teaches the secret of alchemy:

v How to transform the misery and painful emotions into more creative and nourishing energies.
v How to take responsibility for our own healing and happiness in everyday life.
v How to get clarity of mind to take decisions even in complex and stressful situations of life.
v How to experience the joy of liberated energy, the joy of living a whole life; a life of totality.
v How to increase our ability to deepen our self-awareness and strengthen our intuitive power.
v How to improve our skill to relate with all that surrounds us.
v How to connect to our inner wisdom and life purpose.

In this retreat you will experience many different meditation techniques and exercises that have been developed or recommended by Yogis, Shiva, Buddha, Contemporary masters like Gurdjieff, Osho, Sufi Mystics along with Self-Growth techniques.

Some of the techniques and exercises are more active, others more passive; some are done with a partner, some alone, some areas group. Some techniques use the senses – sight, sound, touch – and all will help you to connect with your inner world. This will involve consciously exploring the possibilities beyond the familiar center that you live in and function from. You will need to be open to and welcome new dimensions of life that will begin to unfold and manifest as you move within. And, all these methods are done in a light and joyful way with so that you may dance and celebrate the learning process and transformation.

The retreat also provides deep insights of some enlightened Yogis on the following specific life topics:

A) Art of Living
C) Tension and Relaxation
E) Aloneness and Togetherness
G) Intelligence and Creativity

B) Body-Mind Balancing
D) Love and Relationships
F) Right and Wrong


v In the middle of the retreat the participants will undergo into a 3 days of silence to deepen the experiential and transformational aspect of the retreat where the participants cannot communicate with the outside world including phone call/texts, social medias, emails and so on.

v The silent days are for personal growth and inner journey hence it’s not mandatory but sincerity is required.

Meditation Practices on “CHAKRAS & KUNDALINI”

Advanced Meditation Practice becomes easier and effective when we work deeply on Energy Body i.e. Pranamaya Kosha. Kundalini, Chakras and Nadis are the prime and most essential components of the Energy Body (Pranamaya Kosha). For the inner journey the study of energy anatomy and their effect on physical, mental, and spiritual levels along with meditation practices are needed to understand and experience the chakra system, Kundalini and Nadis. Our Meditation Teacher Training program includes many meditation practices on chakra and kundalini to balance, unblock, re-align and activate them. These meditation techniques based on sound, breathing, guided instructions, visualization and mantras that intensify the awareness and awakening of the different chakras and kundalini.

Meditation Practices from “VIGYAN BHAIRAV TANTRA”

This course also covers some of the powerful meditation techniques on Breathing, Listening, Looking etc. from “VIGYAN BHAIRAV TANTRA”- the most ancient text on Meditation containing 112 Meditation Techniques given by Lord Shiva. The word “Vigyana” means ‘consciousness’, “Bhairava” means ‘the state which is beyond consciousness’, and “Tantra” means ‘the method’. Hence Vigyan Bhairav Tantra means the method of going beyond consciousness. VIGYAN BHAIRAV TANTRA is all inclusive and first practical Manual in world of meditation and also called as Encyclopedia of Meditation Techniques. It starts with Devi’s questions and the techniques are the outcome of the response to the questions by Shiva. It is said that it is impossible for anybody not to find a technique suitable to his own level of spiritual development and inner temperament out of 112 techniques of Vigyan Bhairav Tantra.

Reviews of Life-Transforming Meditation Retreat Course Rishikesh India

It was a nice experience of let go and let be. I loved to do that with music and dance. I experienced nice energy flow in my body during the course. I have experienced lot of emotional challenge from deep energy flow to deep disconnection that made me learn a lot about myself. I loved the deep awareness moments in the morning asanas class. It was a nice balance between dynamic meditation and still meditation.
The teachings were useful and helped to go deeper into practice. The techniques were new and interesting; some are very useful for everyday self-practice. Loved the nice hearth opening experience, felt amazing, the techniques were well bring after good let go and realize that makes them more powerful. Lot of kindness and softness by both meditation & yoga teachers that were much appreciated. The food and the staff were very nice. Very tasty and lovely food, really appreciated.

Life Transforming Meditation Retreat at Yoga Essence has been a profound experience and transformation of my life. The intense program has helped me to go deeper into my feelings that meditation can give us and experienced huge changes happened at my physical, mental and emotional level. I look forward to having the chance to apply all the techniques that Samarth has transmitted us into my life. The program is really rich and holistic, including many classical static techniques as well as more modern and active practices and it imparted deeper insights for a new way of living. Yoga Essence made my experience joyful and helped me to understand the true meaning of yoga. I am glad that the coincidences made me joined this course and the people have been part of it. I would totally recommend this course to anybody who is interested to learn and experience multi-style meditation techniques, asanas, pranayama, Mantra Chanting Applied Yoga philosophy etc. I really enjoyed the staying and food during my retreat and the sight-seeing of Rishikesh.

The experience has been a real eye-opening and useful one for me. I feel I have learned a lot about myself and how to clear some emotional blockages that I had. The other students in my class are lovely and it has been a real pleasure practicing with them. I feel I have learned some really useful techniques that I will certainly take away and practice in my day to day life back home. I feel although I will lead a much healthier and cleaner lifestyle after this experience and take the time to properly look after my mind through meditation practice, Yoga, healthy eating, and sleeping. The teaching has been wonderful. I feel very welcome and at home here and that is largely due to how supportive and warm the teachers are. I really enjoyed learning different techniques because the more techniques learned, the chance there is that you will find a few that you really enjoy and connect with. The food is excellent; please feedback to the chef’s It really couldn’t be better. The staffs in the restaurant are very friendly, attentive and welcoming too, they give it a lovely atmosphere.
