Advaita Laboratory with Chidvilas & Jyoti
*1 Module: Recognizing Who You Really Are*
What is this retreat about?
This retreat concerns the last part of the spiritual journey: The realization of our True Nature. When the ego identifies with the personality it falls prey to conditioning and becomes a victim of circumstances. This identification generates suffering, fear, a sense of loneliness and separation. When the identification returns to the original Self, a completely new vision opens up, you find the essential qualities of your Being: Unconditional Love, Peace, Trust, Harmony, Contentment and Clarity. This discovery is a radical revolution and changes profoundly the vision of our life.

* How does Satsang with Chid & Jyoti work?
It is a group process (12 people max) during a 3Days non-residential retreat in which we will recognize and explore together, under the guidance of the teachers, our True Buddha Nature or Self in a joyful, practical and effective way.
The process consists of a series of group "experiments" using active and passive meditation techniques, exercises on sensation and perception, group and couples exchange, Q&A etc. All held in a present, loving and grounded energy field. It is a direct and active way to practice Self-Enquiry and Self-Investigation.

"You start by chance, curiosity, desire.
You trust them because each word they say is experienced.
You follow them because they do not lead you anywhere, except to your own Heart, deeper and deeper." - Donatella Anat V., student of Chid & Joty since 2006
"The spiritual seeker in me one day felt the need to "discover her true nature".
I then met Chid and Jyoti who support you step by step and then let you go to your inner awakening. How lucky to have met them." - Ekanta, student of Chid & Joty since 2009
"Satsang with Chid & Joty is a wonderful experience! They are loving and kind and involve you at 360degrees without leaving anyone behind. It is a bit like to be in a very nice school where you are supported to ground your attention in who you really are. I attended many satsangs but I never came across such a simple, joyful and effective way to enquiry and discover our true nature and deepen my experience. I definitely recommend them" - Somesh, student of Chid & Joty since 2019
Advaita-Vedanta: is a school of Hindu philosophy and is a classic system of spiritual realization in Hindu tradition. The term Advaita means "Not-Two", it is a direct and non-dualistic spiritual path to recognize our true spiritual nature.
Satsang: is a word which comes from Sanskrit, meaning "gathering together for the truth" or, more simply, "being with the truth.". It is also related to sitting with a sat guru or in a group meeting seeking that association.
