Join us for a Pilgrimage to one of India's most powerful spiritual sanctuaries at the feet of
John David, Spiritual Teacher
Arunachala Mountain has been a powerful place of pilgrimage for two thousand years. It attracted the young Ramana Maharshi after his Self-realisation.
Later when more and more people felt drawn to his presence an ashram was built around him at the foot of the mountain. It became a popular destination also for Western spiritual seekers and the trend has continued into the present.
With a group of around 30 people the retreat will be held in a small Ashram 10 minutes from Ramana Ashram.
This is the 22nd time John David is offering a retreat at Arunachala. For over 20 years he has been invited to use the Ashram of Nannagaru, an Indian Master who passed away some years ago. All these years an Indian cooking team has been taking care of the retreat group with delicious Indian food.

About Ramana Maharshi Aham Sphurana – A Glimpse of Self Realisation
Open Sky Press recently published a fascinating book of Ramana Maharshi's teachings and stories about the day-to-day life in his Ashram. The Book was recorded in 1936 when Ramana was 56 years old at the height of his powers. A treasure trove of dialogues with Bhagavan who answers questions about Self Enquiry, Surrender and the Spiritual Path in general, with unmistakable clarity. Available here
