What it’s About
Being with Mohanji is a lifestyle retreat designed for busy modern people and offers an opportunity to re-connect deeply with one’s self – to experience peace and receive answers to your innermost questions directly from the spiritual teacher Mohanji. Its focus is on relaxation and rejuvenation. With increased clarity, you will learn how to let go from your daily stresses and challenges and connect to your Self. Mohanji says, “Spiritual life means being YOU. Being Natural. Connecting to yourself. Recognizing, understanding and merging with yourself”.
During these few days you will practice yoga, breathing exercises (pranayama), spiritual techniques for inner cleansing under direct guidance of Mohanji, as well as practice of meditations “Power of Purity”, “360 Degrees”, “Blossoms of Love”, “Bliss of Silence”, and the dynamic meditation “Conscious Walking”.
The morning yoga will be held according to the practice designed by the Himalayan School of Traditional Yoga (HSTY). This yoga schedule is specially organized by the Himalayan School of Traditional Yoga (HTSY) using the knowledge acquired through a decade of intensive studies and researches. Sattvic vegan/vegetarian food will aid with the detoxing and inner cleansing.
The primary focus of this program will be on detoxing at all levels, through each of the five elements (air, earth, water, space and fire) that constitute our body. You will have a special opportunity to be in the presence in Mohanji who will guide you to refocus, realign and rejuvenate. Purification happens on all levels – physical, emotional, intellectual and spiritual.
– Cellular level: through Mohanji’s super intense “conscious breathing”, as well as through other Pranayamas and Shatkarma techniques – (air element)
– Physical level: through Yoga asanas, Conscious Walking, carefully selected Vegan food and early-morning water therapy – (earth and water elements)
– Emotional level: through meditations, silence, blessings and forgiveness tuning into unconditional love – (space/mind element)
– Spiritual level: through Homa (fire ceremony) and Shaktipat (energy transfer) to burn all negativities and hindrances to spiritual evolution – (fire element)
Cleansing at all levels is very significant process, given the day-to-day material lives that we lead, and the impressions that we build in the process. The first level of awareness building and cleansing is through discourses and Q&A sessions with Brahmarishi Mohanji. While His presence alone has a very intense purifying effect, satsang is a beautiful medium for this transfer and connection. He delivers knowledge and guidance with directness and simplicity, perfectly tuned to an individual’s requirements and bringing the usually wandering mind to the body and to the present moment. Great purification, peace and stability comes from these sessions. The priceless value of Being with Mohanji retreat is the real alchemy that happens in the expanded aura of the Master. In the right moment, when one is open and ready to let go, the spark in the inner space of an individual triggers true transformation.

“This journey itself has been an absolute miracle with each day of the retreat filled with a thousand miracles. All you had to do was be present and conscious to recognise them. I am truly blessed…. If I had to summarize this retreat in a sentence: 2 weeks of being immersed in Unconditional Love.” – from a participant in the Himalayan Retreat in Rishikesh, Oct 2014
“Deep cleansing, detox, healthy living, relaxation for the mind, aligning of the body-mind-intellect trio, Yoga, breathing techniques, Satsangs, conscious walking, gap-breathing, Mantras, or, in totality, an absolute awareness building in the subtle level. This is how I would like to explain the whole program in a nutshell!” – from a participant in the Serbian Retreat, May 2015
“Money cannot buy this relief. The inner transformation was unbelievable.” – from another participant in the Serbian Retreat, May 2015
“To me, Mohanji is sometimes like a father, a brother, a close friend, a child and he fits into every role effortlessly. He is such a fresh breeze for us. I thought the spiritual path was very serious. That is how we have been taught. I realized with Mohanji that it is not. It is fun. It is love.” – from a participant in the Serbian Retreat, May 2015
