A Retreat Invitation from Mukti: A Call to Courage

More than a call to any particular role or pursuit, the great spiritual call is to the discovery and expression of one’s essential being. To respond to this call does not take fearlessness, but it does take great courage. Your response requires a willingness that is total—a willingness to cease referencing all prior knowledge in thought, as well as a willingness to give the full measure of yourself to what remains.

In a moment of simplicity and quiet courage, it is possible to offer all of yourself to the sacred mystery within your depths, to that domain beyond the grasp of thoughts and ideas. When there is no margin left of you to remain apart and to remain invested in a separate, egoic identity, union in Spirit comes to fruition.

The mystery of Spirit has birthed you as a vital and brilliant expression of form and calls to you from your depth as a yearning, an urging, or as quiet curiosity. When you have the courage to turn toward that call and to see through all excuses and resistance which obscure its draw, you can follow the call home to Source. This is the calling each of us is born to.

Entering spiritual retreat is to respond to this sacred call from within, and to unite with others in a common intention to give ourselves to depth. I invite you to join me in this weekend silent retreat. Together we can bring about conditions for the quiet curiosity and whole-hearted attention that support abiding in depth. I’ll be speaking of acts of courage within spiritual practice that are informed by and in service to profound union with the infinite Source of all.

~ Mukti

About Mukti

“After listening to Mukti’s guided meditation in the Sunday Community gathering, her connection with the earth reaches into my heart—simply palpable. Mukti’s understanding and merging of Self-realization and Self-knowledge within the human—spirit and humanity—is a way home.” ~ J. M. (Testimonial from a participant.)

Sharing retreat with Mukti is an opportunity to be supported by her nurturing and welcoming qualities and her deep transmission of stillness. Her teachings focus on creating conditions that foster the organic unfolding of conscious awareness where energies that arise can be met, allowed, and transformed. Encouraged by her deep respect for each person’s expression as human and divine, her retreatants have formed new and beautiful relationships to thoughts, feelings, and emotions, as well as a deeper receptivity to spirit.

Mukti also brings a special perspective, being Adyashanti’s first student! Stories of her journey of Self-realization are invaluable and bring a fresh feminine take on many of Adya’s pointers. Her invitation to us all is generous and powerful—that of “Spirit coming to know and express itself in our human life.” We hope you take this opportunity to explore and learn from her intimate teachings.

Mirrors Our In-Person Retreats

This online retreat is designed to mirror the experience of our in-person residential silent retreats. The full three-day program includes daily talks and Q&A with Mukti, along with multiple periods of guided and silent (independent) meditation, and qi gong sessions.

Schedule Developed by Adyashanti and Mukti

The program schedule was developed by Adyashanti and Mukti. It reflects their experience of what best supports awakening. The deep silence of meditation, coupled with the focused inquiry of the talks and dialogues, are the ground and seed from which awakening flowers. By setting aside several days outside of your usual schedule and routine, you stop working, tending to family, or taking on other responsibilities and find yourself in a place where all that’s needed is to listen deeply.

Program Highlights

  • Watch live talks & guided meditations.
  • Email questions for live Q&A sessions.
  • Download audio recordings of all live sessions to keep permanently. 
  • Access video replays of original sessions within 24 hours of broadcast and for 30 days after the retreat. (See below for alternative options for those in other time zones.)


About Silence

While this program was designed to support those wishing to participate in full silence, we understand this may not always be possible. Complete silence is neither required, or necessary, to obtain the benefits inherent in immersing yourself in introspection and inquiry for a dedicated period of time. Also, the proposed program schedule can be adapted to fit your availability.

Alternative Time Zone Considerations

This retreat will be held in the Pacific time zone (PT) but is accessible to everyone. Video replays will be available for 30 days after the retreat.

For those in later U.S. time zones, we recommend you adapt the program schedule by shifting the late-night meditations to the mornings.

For those in more distant time zones, you may Contact Us for an additional option which includes faster replays.
