Awakening Retreat for Earnest Seekers

Online via Mooji TV

The highest opportunity of a human birth is to awaken to that which brings true and lasting happiness, unending peace and imperishable existence —the pure Awareness essence. The earnest seeker alone finds this.

This 5-day online retreat is for mature and earnest seekers who have been in Satsang for some time and are familiar with An Invitation to Freedom and what it reveals in you. It offers a new format of one Satsang daily that reflects Moojibaba’s wish to engage with dedicated students who are ready to apply the guidance offered.

An essential aspect of this retreat is contemplative time to facilitate a deepening of understanding, a ripening in Being. There will be potent contemplation guidances, dedicated online spaces and ample time for introspection in support of this. It is a powerful opportunity to immerse yourself in the energy-field of Satsang and be established in your experiential understanding of Truth. 

In a dedicated retreat area on Mooji TV, participants can join the online Contemplative Spaces and Live Satsang Broadcast. Every Satsang, a group of participants are invited to join via Zoom (a different platform), where they have the opportunity to bring forward their burning questions by writing letters and engaging with Mooji. Everyone will be invited to join one of the scheduled Satsangs on Zoom.

During Satsang, Mooji guides, challenges and responds to questioners with wisdom, love, humour and searing honesty. Through Mooji’s presence and direct pointings to Truth, the unfading love, joy and peace that so many are searching for are revealed to be our very nature and Self.

Participating in this Awakening Retreat for Earnest Seekers is a compelling invitation to all who are called to discovering and abiding as this timeless Truth

Retreat Guidelines

Retreat Guidelines: Русский | Español | Português | Italiano

This Awakening Retreat for Earnest Seekers is for those who are genuinely drawn to Self-discovery. This environment is not for the merely curious, but for those who have a sincere and wholehearted commitment to Self-discovery. Each participant is asked to follow these guidelines which are in place to facilitate your awakening.

  • Approach the retreat with the understanding that it is not a casual event—it is for those who have been in Satsang for some time and are earnestly seeking Self-realisation in this life.

  • It is a prerequisite to be familiar with the guidance offered in An Invitation to Freedom, which can be found here.

  • Present questions to Mooji in a simple, open and honest way—come as though this is your only opportunity for freedom. Mooji encourages you to present your question in written form, to get to the essence of what your burning question for freedom really is.
  • As much as possible throughout the retreat, move quietly with your attention resting in silent awareness. This greatly supports you making the most of your opportunity.

  • This retreat is not suitable for those who have a history of any serious mental health condition. This kind of introspection may trigger latent traumatic imprints and deep rooted tendencies, which may require further psychological and psychiatric treatment. We do not have the resources or capacity to provide this kind of support. We strongly urge you not to participate in this retreat if you are currently receiving or have previously received medical treatment or therapy for issues related to mental health. More information can be found here.

You agree to have your image and voice recorded and possibly used for the sharing of Satsang on DVD, mp3 and on the Internet. All recorded material will be used to serve Satsang only. Images of all individuals will be treated with the utmost sensitivity and respect.

How it Works

This online Awakening Retreat will take place in a dedicated retreat area on Mooji TV. As this event is for those already familiar with Satsang, additional time and supporting resources are offered for contemplation to really absorb and deepen in the guidance given during Satsang.

Satsang with Moojibaba
Satsang will be offered daily via Live Broadcast on Mooji TV, with another group joining on Zoom. Everyone will be invited to join one of the scheduled Satsangs on Zoom.

Moojibaba will read and respond to letters from the Zoom call participants, and may also speak with someone in the Zoom call, answering questions, doubts or testimonies regarding Self-discovery. Those watching these exchanges on the broadcast benefit greatly from Moojibaba’s universal answers that guide us into the direct experience of Truth.

Which Satsang can I join on Zoom? During registration you can let us know which Satsang you would prefer to join on Zoom. We will do our best to accommodate everyone’s preference and send out the invitations before the start of the retreat.

Sahaja Spaces ~ Online Contemplation Areas
Inspired by the beauty and nature of Monte Sahaja, the Centre for Self-Realisation in Portugal,  Sahaja Spaces offers a way to visit the various contemplative spaces in Monte Sahaja online via Zoom. These are open throughout the retreat. 

You can contemplate in the sacred spaces such as the Christ Chapel, Shiva Temple and Mooji Mandir, or in serene nature areas such as the Lotus Garden and Ganga Lagoon. We have found that this is a wonderful way to be immersed in the potent energy field of Monte Sahaja from wherever you may find yourself around the world. 

Special contemplative videos with Moojibaba reading from sacred texts will also be offered as a support for this contemplative aspect of the Awakening Retreat.

Recordings & Broadcasts
The Satsangs and Guided Meditation with Moojibaba will be via Live Broadcast, while other offerings will be recordings such as potent Contemplation Guidances to support your deepening in Satsang.

See the Schedule below for more information about what will be offered

Schedule

The retreat begins with a Welcome and Retreat Opening Program on Wednesday, 18 August, which includes a powerful Satsang recording and opening of the Sahaja Spaces for contemplation. This is followed by five live Satsangs and a Guided Meditation with Moojibaba over five days. This format of having one Satsang per day allows time to marinate and deepen in the guidance that has been given, and also allows more flexibility for Moojibaba to continue the Satsang according to the flow and needs of the retreat.

Another essential aspect of the retreat is a series of potent Satsang talks and guidances that have proven to be a powerful support for the close sangha:

  • Pre-Retreat Recordings: Access to these essential talks will be sent by email on the Monday and Tuesday before the retreat to help set the tone and provide the foundation for our time in Satsang with Moojibaba.
  • Contemplation Guidance Recordings: These are short, focused pointings from Moojibaba for those who are inside the seeing. They will be shared throughout the retreat to be taken into our contemplation.

Making the most of this opportunity
This online Awakening Retreat is more than just the scheduled Satsangs. It is highly recommended that you arrange quiet, contemplative time and space for yourself whenever possible. This greatly supports you making the most of your opportunity. You can find some additional suggestions in the General section of the FAQs.

Technical Requirements for joining this Online Retreat can be found here

Languages

The retreat is in English, and live translation is available in Italian, Portuguese, Russian and Spanish for the broadcast.

It is possible to submit letters for Mooji in the above languages and our team will translate them. Live Translation for each language will also be available in selected Zoom calls, with each language being allocated a particular session. Each participant will have the opportunity to attend one Satsang session on Zoom (if they like), and priority for a particular session will be given to those who require translation in the language being offered on Zoom.

This translation service is being lovingly offered by non-professional interpreters joining online from around the world. Offering live translations in this way is quite new for us, and the quality may vary. It is helpful for some participants to listen to Satsang in their native language, however there is always the possibility that some of Mooji’s words or meaning is missing or not translated perfectly. Naturally, Mooji’s own, unfiltered words are the highest and most powerful transmission, but many have benefitted deeply from listening to the live translation.

“There are no dialogues in the world.
It is all a divine monologue.
For in reality there are not two.
There is only the single reality
in its appearance as many.”

~ Mooji
