Wristband Entry Flow

At check in you will receive a coloured wristband which you need to show whenever you enter the venue. Entry to the Satsang Hall will be prioritised depending on wristband colour. This is to give everyone a chance to be first to enter the hall, and we also hope this will reduce the need for early queueing.

For the first Satsang on Wednesday, the doors open at 16:00 (4:00pm Lisbon time). There will be a free flow entry, with no wristband colour priority.

For all other Satsangs, doors open 1h15min to 45 min before Satsang, depending on your wristband colour.

At check-in you can make note of which sessions your colour will have priority entrance for, and the time of entry. It is your responsibility to be there on time and not to miss your priority entrance when it is your turn.

Being in Satsang at Aula Magna

Moojibaba will take questions, reports and testimonies from those attending the intensive physically in Lisbon. Please keep your question to the essence of what you would like to share, arising from the heart of your discovery in Satsang.

Know that it is not necessary to ask a question to make the full use of this time—when Moojibaba answers one questioner, he is answering everyone, as his guidance is universal.

GUIDELINES FOR THE AWAKENING INTENSIVE

Each participant is asked to follow these guidelines which are in full service to your awakening.

EARNESTNESS

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

INNER SILENCE

Move quietly with your attention resting in silent awareness, including before and after Satsang. Keep social interactions to a minimum.

OPENNESS AND HONESTY

Present questions to Mooji in a simple, open and honest way—as though this is your only opportunity for freedom.
