This retreat will massively accelerate your growth in various areas of your life and fundamentally change your understanding of meditation and personality work – without strict rules of conduct and hour-long meditation marathons!
Manageable group sizes allow for very individual teachings – even one-on-one conversations with the Master. Our destination in the south of India, the holy city of Tiruvannamalai, is located at the foot of Mount Arunachala, one of the most powerful places of power on earth. This is inextricably linked to the Indian philosopher and Advaita Vedanta master Ramana Maharshi, who lived here until 1950 and whose presence is still clearly felt today.
The participation fee is € 1,198 per person, which includes the seminar fee, 13 overnight stays on site as well as a day trip to other interesting places related to the contents of the seminar.
Two of you will stay in accommodation typical for the country. The accommodation is Ashram-style (very simple, but clean) and is in a beautiful, central location.
All participants are responsible for their own air travel, meals (vegetarian food is available on site) and any travel insurance. For the return flight from Germany, please calculate about 700,- € (± 150,- €) – depending on the departure airport and whether you arrive by direct flight or with a stopover. The food costs on site are very reasonable, about 10,- € per day are already sufficient.
Your transfer by car between the destination airport Chennai and the seminar location in Tiruvannamalai will be organised by us.
There is no vaccination requirement for entry into India. The Corona requirements valid at the time of entry must be complied with. An entry visa must be applied for – this requires a passport that is valid beyond the day of departure.

For further details please contact the seminar leader! It makes sense to contact us anyway, for example in the form of a preliminary telephone conversation. You will receive additional information automatically after your registration.
In exceptional cases – e.g. due to sudden illness of the lecturer or similar – other, professionally qualified teachers may also hold or participate in the seminar.
Notes on the Corona Pandemic
The legal regulations of the respective country of stay or transit apply to the outward and return journey as well as to the stay on site. Local regulations and any conditions must be observed. All participants in the seminar are responsible for this.
A daily declaration by all seminar participants that he/she is not ill with Covid-19 at the start of the event is a prerequisite for participation.
Possible seminar cancellation or termination
Due to the constantly changing incidence of infection, it is currently not possible to make any reliable forecasts for the date of the seminar.
Should the seminar not be able to take place due to the Corona pandemic, but also due to force majeure or an unexpected absence of the seminar leader, any participation fees already paid will of course be refunded. However, costs incurred for the individual outward and return journey cannot be reimbursed; it is therefore advisable to take out travel cancellation insurance.
Should a participant drop out of a seminar that is already in progress, the seminar fee must still be paid.
Planned schedule (changes are still possible)
