Living from the Inside Out Retreat
Find Solutions to Life's Challenges

Not scheduled at this time.

with Nayaswami Mukti

During this retreat, you will:

  • Learn meditation techniques to connect to your highest self
  • Explore tools and attitudes to maintain inspiration throughout the day
  • Look at attitudes that hold you back from higher awareness
  • Learn how to connect with your higher self—for better relationships, for harmony inwardly and outwardly, and to find solutions in daily life.

Don't be bogged down by negative emotions and old bad habits. A wonderful clarity and positive energy comes with dynamically connecting to your highest self. Even a little meditation and attention can open the door for you to discover a storehouse of solutions within yourself.

“Don’t let others define you in their terms. Live by what you know of yourself, inwardly. Your abiding reality is the peace, love, and joy you have experienced in your own soul.  —Swami Kriyananda, Meditation for Starters

This will be a dynamic, joyful, and fun weekend, with tools to use for the rest of your life.

What our guests say:

 "The experience was amazing.  I was introduced to many principles that have helped me navigate through life. I will definitely be back soon." -MM Fresno, CA

"Just returned from the Living From the Inside Out retreat with Mukti Deranja. This class was the perfect next step in my path of yoga and meditation, providing me with practical tools that I can use when specific challenges arise, from procrastination to working with difficult people. Mukti created a warm, welcoming environment in which to share and explore ways to help ourselves become the people we are meant to be. Her wise, cheerful, and patient manner belied a seriously targeted set of tools that anyone can practice to navigate daily life. Highly recommend this eminently practical course!" - C.S., Oakland, CA

"Wonderful, simple exercises that bring profound teachings. Clear, straightforward explanations."  - Michael, Palo Alto, CA

"This coures is a well-sequenced, delightfully offered instruction. I felt at at ease while at the same time learning profoundly useful techniques. Interaction is offered with a kind invitation. We learned that this special gift of meditation is accessible to all, and that the skill is buildable with continued practice. We noticed this within the process of the class itelf, and so we can easily imagine how the practice can continue to grow one's connection to the superconsciousness or God in one's daily life. I highly recommend the class." - B.D., Sacramento, CA

"In a few simple descriptions, I understood the different types of influences within myself and techniques that could help me move toward higher consciousness. Very helpful and easy to understand." - K.S., Rescue, CA

"I gained a sense of peace, calmness, and insights for my personal practice - tools for balancing the inner and outer world, techniques to bring energy to higher consciousness."  - V.H., Sacramento, CA

3 Tips for Living from the Inside Out

1. Take a few minutes of personal quiet time, noticing the flow of breath inside the nose, letting the world carry on without you. Make this a daily habit.
2. Notice negative thoughts and choose to release them. Discover new ways to approach a situation.
3. Place your index finger at the point between the eyebrows and concentrate (with relaxation) at that point. How do you feel?
