A Retreat Invitation from Mukti

Life-changing events primarily begin within one’s self as a fundamental inclination to grow, to discover, to live and express fully. When inclined toward peace, truth, and wholeness, such discoveries and expressions can bring about a growing sense of satisfaction and well-being.

This upcoming Winter Weekend Retreat is a time to set conditions for change and for deepening Self-realization and Self-knowledge. For how is one to live and express fully without uncovering the depths of who and what they truly are? Retreat is a time to allow what no longer serves to fall away. It is also an opportunity for what is true and life-giving to flower, and for you to flower in your expressions of spirit and humanity.

Much falls away and is put to rest in communion with the quiet simplicity of meditation, and much is revealed and discovered through the evocative power of self-inquiry. I invite you to join me, Mukti, and others of like-minded inclination for this weekend retreat, to avail of the inward time of winter and the light of the holiday season to further the deepening and brightening of consciousness toward Self-realization. ~ Mukti

About Mukti

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
  • Download audio and summary notes
  • Email questions for live Q&A sessions
  • Dedicate yourself to meditation practice
  • Access replays within 48 hours of live sessions and for 30 days after the retreat


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.

Time Zone Considerations

This retreat will be held in the Pacific time zone (PT) but is accessible to everyone. Participants are encouraged to follow along with the live programming if possible. However, those in later time zones can adapt the program schedule by shifting the late-night meditations to the mornings. For those in more distant time zones, while it may not be possible for you to participate live, you are invited to follow along via the video replays which will be available within 48 hours of live broadcasts and accessible for 30 days after the retreat.
