Extended Programs

Deepen in your Satsang with a longer stay in Monte Sahaja

ASHRAM EXTENDED STAY

The Ashram Extended Stay is a seasonal residential program for those who wish to be immersed in the energy field of a living ashram that supports genuine Self-discovery. It is a beautiful opportunity to deepen in Satsang while engaging in daily ashram life. Participants stay in the ashram and take part in the ashram program, which includes daily ashram activities (see below). 

The Ashram Extended Stay is ideal for those who enjoy physical activity and a reasonable amount of physical fitness is necessary to participate. This program is offered seasonally, with 3 – 4 programs each year ranging from 2 – 3 months in duration. 

Ashram Activities 
Everybody in Monte Sahaja moves in the inner attitude of seva. Seva means ‘selfless service’ and refers to action done without any expectation of an outcome, which can be applied to any aspect of life. Seva can itself be a powerful form of Satsang, as it is an opportunity to let go of our identification with the ‘doer’ and to directly experience that all actions are an expression of consciousness. This is a beautiful part of ashram life in Monte Sahaja, and everyone participating in this program will be involved with an ashram activity for a few hours each day.  

The activities offered as part of the ashram life are physical by nature and due to the hilly land and variable climate of Monte Sahaja it is important to be physically fit. Please take to heart your present physical condition if considering applying for this program. For information about other ways to visit Monte Sahaja and the next opportunities to be in Satsang with Moojibaba, please see Sahaja Guest Stays and our Events Schedule.

– Regular meetings with the Sangha to help make the most of your stay.
