Indiai Elvonulás Ajiittal
3-28 February 2019, Tiruvanammalai and Kovalam
Join the retreat with Ajiit in India next February!
The retreat is a great opportunity to resign from your everyday life and spend three weeks with discovering who you really are beyond your personality and identity.
We are happy to inform you, that based on the experience of 2018, Ajiit has decided to reorganize the Indian Retreat for 2019, to get the most benefit for all participants. The 2019 retreat will be longer and divided into two parts, taking place in two different locations in India.
The first part (3-14 February) will be dedicated to investigate with Ajiit’s guidance the fundamental question of self inquiry: Who am I?, based on the teachings of the great Indian sage, Ramana Maharshi. The Ramana ashram, and the holy mountain of Arunachala will be an invaluable support in this inquiry in Tiruvannamalai, where the retreat starts. This time is a great opportunity to discover the beauty of your own being and also to see what are the emotional and mental blocks that don't allow you to live this beauty in your everyday life.
The second part of the retreat (17-28 February) is when we bring our discovery and self inquiry to the practical and physical level. Ajiit created a system of movement meditation, called JIAIDO to support the process of personal and Self development. For another 10 days with intensive JIAIDO practice with Ajiit we guide the attention to the present and bring our understandings about ourselves into experience and realization. This part of the retreat will take place in the beautiful state of Kerala directly on the beach, where you can also recharge yourself with the natural environment of the ocean and sun.
You can join the first part for the second part, or can sign up for the 3 weeks retreat.

Activities in Tiruvannamalai
We start the day with Jiaido movement meditation practice on the rooftop, with the view of the Arunachala.
We will have daily two meetings with Ajiit. His presence and guidance helps us go deeper into the ultimate question :Who am I? in practical terms. The meetings are great opportunity to ask your questions about the inner journey to discover yourself.
Before satsangs we sing mantras together to open our heart and get in tune with our being.
We will spend time in the Ramana Ashram, home of the great Indian sage, Ramana Maharshi. We will it in the meditation hall, walk around his shrine, and enjoy a traditional lunch at the ashram.
We visit the caves of the holy mountain of Arunachala, where Ramana Maharshi spent many years alone and later with his close disciples. We will spend time there silent sitting in the caves.
We will enjoy delicious local food.
Sharing from previous retreats
"The retreat brought me practical tools, methods, experiences and understandings, which can help in guiding the attention and keeping it in the state of here and now, to be present in every activity. I can see my job and responsibility in the learning process on this path, and I wish to expand this awareness more and more by bringing harmony and balance to the weekdays."
"I spent two weeks in complete flow, attention, joy, touched and in a devoted closeness with my friends. To the top of the Arunachala we were “lifted up” by a cloud effortlessly, the ashram was nestling me, the music sessions were vibrating in harmony, and from satsang to satsang my understanding got deeper and deeper about where I am.
The Indian retreat in Tiru is a symbol of this state, but I am devoted to stay in it forever."
"The retreat took me out from my daily routine and from this distance I could reorganize myself internally. The silent environment of Tiruvannamalai and the Ramana Ashram, Ajiit's guidance, the supporting attitude of the group brought me a peaceful inner state.
Ajiit's pointing helps me to be in the present moment, to really participate in my own life and at the same time become less self-centered. I can see more clearly those elements in my attitude and way of looking which create difficulty or which limit my being."
Thank you for this wonderful opportunity, to Ajiit and the community. The retreat brought me great joy and peace
