Online Silent Retreats
Online meditation, yoga and satsang. Live and recorded sessions from Amritapuri, India.
In response to the current pandemic and widespread travel restrictions, Amma has asked that Amrita Silent Retreats be made available online for her devotees around the world. Throughout these challenging times, Amma has been consistently encouraging us to maintain our daily spiritual practice, to accept the present moment with gratitude, to pray and meditate for world peace, and to remain optimistic and self confident. This online program provides a way for participants to connect with Amma in a palpable way. As Amma herself often reminds us, “where there is love, there is no distance.” All sessions will be broadcast live from Amritapuri.
Some special retreats can also be joined in person in Amma’s ashrams in France and Germany.

Thus, the content is based on Amma’s core values of service to the needy, world peace through inner peace, and living in harmony with Mother Nature.
