This Silent Meditative Retreat reinforces existing spiritual practices and provides the foundation for a lifetime of meditation practice. Connecting with this sacred and ancient wisdom within ourselves brings meaning to life. Benefits include clarity and strength of mind to achieve your goals, staying centred in an ever-changing world and overcoming stress and tension. Amma’s simple technique of breath awareness infused with the MA OM mantras and open observation makes this retreat suitable for all levels of experience in meditation from beginner to advanced. Meditation format alternates between guided meditation, silent sitting and silent walking sessions.
Brahmachari Shraddhamrita Chaitanya is a monastic disciple of the renowned Indian spiritual leader and humanitarian, Mata Amritanandamayi, known as Amma (meaning mother). Amma is an embodiment of unconditional Love, flowing unceasingly towards all mankind. People from all over the world seek her out for help with the problems of their lives and for spiritual counsel.

Also, since 2004, 70 million in disaster relief has been distributed internationally. Recently Amma has donated 15 million USD to the Govt of India towards the Clean Ganges River project.
