with Durga Patricia Carroll

Each participant works on one question for the duration of the retreat: “Who am I?”, “What am I?”, “What is…

Awakening Christ Consciousness with Gurudev Shri Amritji

with Gurudev Shri Amritji

April 18 - 21, 2019
Amrit Yoga Institute
Amritji reveals the relationship between Christ Consciousness and the Yogic path during this beautiful weekend program. Christ revealed and demonstrated the indwelling awakened divinity of potential consciousness that we innately are. Christ was not his body that happened at birth and disappeared with death. Christ is the consciousness: timeless, impersonal, universal, and self-luminous. The ultimate source of entire creation.  If we understand Christ in this context, there is a possibility of real celebration. Consciousness is impersonal and hence it manifested through great masters, in many nations, various cultures, in various forms, under different names, at different times throughout human history. Christ is an undivided reality of oneness. Who ever separates him or herself from the creation moves out of the reality that Christ is – impersonal and universal. In this weekend immersion, you will experientially and intellectually learn the tools for you to connect to Christ Consciousness through the medium…
