SWATANTRA IMMERSION IN INDIA
A completely unique & customized experience that will enhance and greatly contribute to your personal spiritual journey. This is something I experienced on my own for about two years, and realizing how rare & beneficial it is to have one-on-one attention, I've now created this opportunity for others to have as well.
You are invited to immerse yourself in a one of a kind transformational experience, guided by Shrinandanji (Baba) and me. During this time you will be held in space that is high energy, clear, calm and quiet. Full attention is given to your physical, emotional and energetic body; this can include body work, counseling, and energetic transmissions, along with meditation, homemade vegetarian (south Indian style) meals and daily fire ritual and sadhana practices; all given on a one-on-one basis.
WHO IS THIS FOR?
This opportunity is open to those seeking to move further along in their spiritual journey. Whether you are at the beginning or well advanced, as long as you are open and willing to do some deep work you are welcome here. This is not a novelty or tourist visit. We are here for you only and are committed to your growth and healing, whether you are in the midst of crisis or sincerely looking to go deeper into your path. Many people have arrived stuck in emotional issues, addictions, or at a spiritual plateau. They have left with clarity, healing and a renewed sense of life. The work must continue after you leave through your own self-disciplined practice, with the option to remain in contact with us for continued guidance. Everything is done in order for you to reestablish connection to your own power and Truth through the Life Force that resides within you. This leads to clarity, renewed vitality and expanded creativity.
WHAT HAPPENS DURING THE IMMERSION?
Energy transmissions initiate internal alchemical transformation. This allows for clearing of stagnant energy due to childhood wounding, dna/ancestral trauma and emotional/physical blockage. The transmission happens during one-on-one sessions, body work and meditation. Due to the high energy atmosphere, there is a natural entrainment that tends to happen which allows one to release and purge (physically, emotionally and energetically), therefore allowing one's natural strength, clarity, wisdom and positivity to emerge.
Although there is nothing set in stone, in a logistical sense the days consist of a morning sadhana practice (movement, breath, meditation), 2 one-on-one sessions with Baba, bodywork and a nightly fire ritual.
Silence is suggested for the majority of time. This means turning all electronics off and dialogue only during sessions. This helps to keep your energy focused and calm. A calm nervous system is key to healing.
WHERE DOES THIS TAKE PLACE?
The three of us stay at my home in Coimbatore, Tamil Nadu. It is often best to fly into a major hub and then take a local flight right into Coimbatore. I live in a 3-bedroom/3-bath home in a secure gated community. We have a cook who prepares all vegetarian meals south Indian style.
WHEN IS THIS POSSIBLE?
This is an ongoing opportunity. The high tourist season in general in India is October - March. Coimbatore is not a tourist destination so the atmosphere here stays pretty much the same all year round. Coimbatore weather is relatively mild in comparison to the rest of the country; March - May are generally the hottest months, a strong wind comes in through June and July blowing out the hot air and bringing in the rain that usually comes around August - November. December and January are the coolest months as February brings the change of season once again. Of course, as we all know, weather everywhere is unpredictable but this gives you a general idea.

In India, spiritual teachers do not ask for money for their time and efforts. It is customary to offer “dakshina” to them, an offering from the heart of the student to the teacher in appreciation. It is a way to balance the energy of the sharing that takes place. I have found that most people don’t understand the concept of dakshina and are unclear as to the amount of money that would be appropriate to offer Baba as dakshina. My suggestion is around $500USD for a 7-day immersion, but the final decision is yours and this will be graciously accepted. I’m happy to chat more with you about this if a visit is planned.
Over the past couple of years we have had a variety of people come and stay with us. Here are some recent testimonials.
