5-Day Satsang Intensive

CANCELLED

The most important thing in life is to wake up to who you truly are. You are not merely a personal being. You are the living spirit of Truth. You are the light of consciousness revealing all. You are the perceiving presence devoid of desire and attachment. You are the wisdom and love that shines from the source of existence. You are unborn Awareness.

~ Mooji

IMPORTANT UPDATE: Lisbon Intensive 2020 Cancelled
As you may know, there has been an outbreak of a new, infectious coronavirus. This started in China and is now affecting many countries in the EU and around the world. As there are a growing number of people affected by the coronavirus worldwide, we feel it is wise and in the best interests of all participants and those living in Portugal that we cancel the Lisbon Satsang Intensive. Full event-fee refunds will be issued to everyone who has booked.

This Satsang Intensive with Mooji is a powerful non-residential retreat in the heart of one of Europe’s most beautiful cities. It offers the opportunity to be immersed in the energy field of Satsang — of genuine introspection and contemplation, while still moving in your worldly activities. These five days are a compelling invitation to everyone who is called by the inner voice of the Heart to come to the full recognition of their true Self.

Mooji introduces Satsang as the most effective aid for true and lasting self-discovery. His presence, guidance and words encourage, challenge and never fail to illuminate. Satsang will take place twice each day, offering a supportive and loving space where Mooji answers and guides genuine seekers of peace and freedom into the direct recognition of the timeless Truth.

Participants arrange their own food and accommodation, however silence is encouraged to support the deep introspection offered in Satsang. While silence means to keep quiet externally and refrain from contact with those around us as much as possible, it also means to introvert our attention and rest it in Being.

Guidelines

This Satsang Intensive with Mooji is for those who are genuinely drawn to Self-discovery. This environment is not for the merely curious, but for those with a sincere commitment to participating fully and a willingness to adhere to the following guidelines, which are in full support of Satsang.

By attending this event you agree to the following: 

• Approach the retreat with the understanding that it is not a casual event—it is for true and lasting self-discovery. Please attend every Satsang of the Intensive and stay in the hall until Mooji has left the space.

Present questions to Mooji in a simple, open and honest way. Avoid sharing personal stories, but come as though this is your only opportunity for freedom. Please understand and respect that it is only during Satsang that Mooji invites questions—he will not receive questions afterwards.

Move in silence before, during and after the Satsang sessions and take all necessary interactions outside the building. Keep your interactions with others to a minimum so as to be immersed fully in Satsang.

Switch off mobile phones or tablets completely during Satsang. Even a muted phone can interfere with the sound system.

Do not take photos or videos inside the hall. We have designated photographers and we will post photos on the website.

Wear modest clothing throughout the intensive, avoiding tight, revealing or transparent clothes.

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.

Ensure it is reasonably safe to attend the Intensive if you have a history of serious mental health conditions. If this applies, check with a specialist healthcare practitioner whether attending the Intensive is suitable for you at this time. Satsang is not a replacement for any therapy or other medical treatment or diagnosis. If you are currently receiving or have previously received any medical treatment or therapy for issues related to mental health, Satsang may not be suitable for you. More information can be found in the Physical and Mental Well-being FAQs.

• The use of intoxicants or recreational drugs is strictly prohibited for the duration of this Intensive

Languages

Live Translations are available and lovingly offered by a team of devoted, non-professional interpreters. It is very helpful for some participants to listen to Satsang in their native language, however please be aware that 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.

This Intensive will be translated into Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, Italian and French. If you need translation in any of these 5 languages: During registration you can indicate on the form that you speak little or no English. We will then send you an email about the translation service closer to the event.

Requirements:

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.

WAYS TO JOIN
There are two ways to participate in the Satsang Intensive. You can come to Lisbon to be in Mooji’s physical presence at the Aula Magna, or you can join the Live Internet Broadcast through Mooji TV.

Attending physically at Aula Magna, Lisbon
Being in the physical presence of a living Master and fully immersing yourself in the energy field of Satsang is a rare and blessed opportunity. Mooji’s loving and unfathomable presence itself can trigger transformation in one who is ripe for awakening. Although the Aula Magna is a large venue, registering online in advance is essential.

Watching online via Live Internet Broadcast
If you are unable to attend physically in Lisbon, joining via Live Internet Broadcast through Mooji TV is an excellent alternative. You will have access to the daily Satsangs in real-time, as well as to the additional scheduled events such as Bhajans. For Mooji there is no separation, no distance to those joining online and he sees absolutely no hindrance or disadvantage to your awakening in attending in this way.

Regardless whether you attend in-person or online, an Intensive is more than just the scheduled events, and it is highly recommended that you arrange plenty of quiet, contemplative time and space for yourself. The time you spend prior to and after Satsang is of utmost importance to allow the pointings to settle deeply inside your heart.
