Purification and Empowerment Retreat


  • Maha Rose North 130 Morgan Hill Road Hurley, NY, 12443 United States (map)

Pu·ri·fi·ca·tion & em·pow·er·ment: the removal of contaminants from something & the process of becoming stronger and more confident, especially in controlling one's life and claiming one's rights.

The mind and the spiritual heart are indistinguishably one, but unless you train the mind to support the needs of the spiritual heart, it can overshadow your awakened nature, and your life becomes a quest for an insatiable pleasure instead of happiness.

Why purify? In order to reconnect with our spiritual heart -- the part of us that is already awake, guiding us towards our purpose -- we must purify ourselves from old habits to create a sustainable, happy life.

We must train our most powerful tool -- the mind -- to support the intention of our spiritual heart. The purification of the mind is the foundation for the spiritual path. Our minds are intricate networks made of belief systems that have been passed down to us from previous generations. Our minds are karmic gardens of possibilities and you must nurture seeds of potentiality that lead you to your purpose and into the intuitive heart.

We will learn the physiological component of happiness and how to deepen the connection between the brain, the heart, and the gut. When these three main centers in the body are in alignment, we can start to release psychological rigidities, and open up to the spaciousness of the spiritual heart.


What you’ll experience: 

-Meditation to establish single pointed focus because a focused mind is a happy mind. 

-New skills that help you be a witness to your thoughts and feelings as they arise.

-Yoga asana to release stored trauma and stress in the body. 

-Breathwork to balance your nervous system. 

-Vocal release to reclaim your voice. 

-Ancient and modern exercises to reestablish your connection to the spiritual heart. 

-Mantra practice to permeate the mind with a supportive vocabulary. 

-Self love practice to help you radically accept parts of yourself that you’re not proud of. 

-Forgiveness rituals to help you make peace with the things that you cannot change and courage to change the things that you can. 

-Come home with a spiritual tool kit that is supported by scientific evidence to transform your mind set reconnect with your innate nature.


It’s time to release the past and stop worrying about the future. Start living the life of your dreams NOW.
