Weekend Workshop

'Fulfilment and Freedom'

with Janaki

 Saturday 21st  and Sunday, 22nd Aug 2021

9am to 5pm both days

In person or online by Zoom

Cost: $265 for members of ASYA

$295 for non-members




Have you ever asked yourself, what’s the point? Have you ever had the experience of wanting something but you don’t know what it is you want?


We are all looking for purpose in our lives, we yearn for fulfilment and we seek freedom in many forms. This is what drives us to do many of the things we do in life. Yoga teaches us how to look inside to find freedom and live in inner fulfilment all of the time.


In this workshop:


  • Experience spinal release to decompress your spine and brain stem. Without that internal compression you see life differently.


  • Learn a breathing practice to give you more calmness and ease to deal with the challenges of life


  • Open the doorway inside with chanting. Experience how you can live from a deeper place within yourself with meditation


  • Gain a deeper understanding of what freedom really is and how to find it.


  • Discover how yoga teachings explain how you can fulfil your life’s purpose.


This workshop will be both fun and challenging. You will learn how to unlock the tensions that radiate from your spine into your skull. This type of release gives your brain more space to function and changes your perspective on life.

Your spiritual progress is accelerated by receiving Maha-Shaktipat Diksha.  This is the initiation that awakens your Kundalini energy for the highest purpose of human life — the knowing of your own Divine Self.

It is a unique and extraordinary experience. It creates powerful and positive changes in your mind, body and life.” 
— Kelly S.

“Very deep spiritual experience.  Excellent program.” — Kristine F.

“Absolutely wonderful spiritual experience. I was so honored to meet such a great Guru and Kundalini Master; this is a truly life changing experience.”  — Alena T.

Consciousness resides in its fullness within every human being.  This cosmic power of creation and revelation, in her hidden aspect, is called “Kundalini.”  When awakened by the Guru, Kundalini climbs your spine from tail to top. She is the force underlying the power and ease of all the Svaroopa® sciences taught by Satguru Swami Nirmalananda (Gurudevi).

You receive formal Shaktipat initiation from Gurudevi two times in this weekend meditation retreat. She is a Kundalini Master, initiated and authorized to transmit this powerful initiation. She explains the process and purpose as well as how you cooperate with the inner force that is burning within you, in-light-ening you day by day.

Your online orientation program begins the process about two days before the weekend begins.  Find out what you can do to get the most benefit, including planning your vegetarian meals and personal time as well as time with others. 

The profound inward path of Svaroopa® Vidya Meditation begins with Shaktipat.  Discover a whole new dimension to your own being and learn tools that help you bring that into your life.
