All-Day Workshop with Swami Premodaya
Sunday, September 22, 2024
2:00pm to 7:00pm (US Pacific Time)
Live on Zoom
Workshops with Swami Premodaya are an extended opportunity to bathe in the energy of Satsang, while receiving the benefits of individual assistance from a helper operating from a position of God-consciousness and Divine intention. Simply stated, Premodaya works with your soul directly, always for the purpose of advancing you spiritually. Grace activates to the exact degree of an individual’s willingness to allow it. Therefore, Premodaya helps us remove the particular barriers we are carrying, that block the way to actual fulfillment. He works lovingly, gently, safely and effectively, to bring about the precise transformations each person will require to reach permanent, true realization of the transcendent. Workshops also function as sustained shaktipat (spiritual transmission), yielding discernibly immediate results, as well as beneficial effects that become apparent in the weeks (and even years) that follow.
► WHAT WILL THE EVENT CONSIST OF, AND WHAT WILL BE THE SCHEDULE FOR THE DAY?
This event is an all day ‘intensive’. It is intended and designed to promote awareness, exploration and insight, true clarity and expanded consciousness. Varying religious and spiritual traditions, both Eastern and Western, refer to this in a variety of ways and in differing terms. Throughout history this has resulted in often divergent teachings as to the ‘why’ and ‘how’ of higher consciousness. Sri Swami Satchidananda succinctly described and solved this state of affairs by making his motto the old Eastern saying: “Truth is one, paths are many”.
COMPUTER/MOBILE DEVICE ON ZOOM
Workshops are online via Zoom (Workshop log-in information will be emailed upon registration).
► WILL ANYTHING BE REQUIRED OF ME? WILL I BE CALLED ON AT RANDOM? IF I DON’T WANT TO SPEAK OR TALK ABOUT MYSELF, WILL I BE ASKED TO ANYWAY?
There are no requirements or obligations. The entire day is spent working together as a group. Swami Premodaya does not use “boot camp” or high pressure methods. Everyone will have the opportunity to ask questions, speak, and share whatever they wish, as well as work directly with Swami Premodaya. But no one is required to speak, share, or do anything, and no one will be called upon to do anything they don’t want to do. During any exercises that may occur, you participate at your own discretion. If you wish to sit out, that’s fine. No one will question your decisions regarding how actively you participate. If you prefer to spend the day listening and learning, that’s fine (although Premodaya suggests that the more actively you participate, the richer your experience is likely to be).
► WHAT IS THE PLAN FOR LUNCH?
NOTE: To respect the sacred nature of gatherings like this one, we ask that you not eat or drink during group sessions. This is because the unconscious mind often uses it as a distraction from the work (not to mention that it’s a distraction to others).
REGISTRATION: To register, phone ICODA at 310.497.1899 (USA). You can call to arrange payment, or mail your check (payable to ‘ICODA’) to our mailing address below (your registration is complete once your payment has cleared). Due to this year’s online (Zoom) setting, there are no limits to the number of attendees allowed, which was only necessary in the past due to space limitations at some venues.
If limited income or resources genuinely precludes your being able to attend, ICODA offers financial assistance in the form of payment plans and/or scholarship opportunities, for qualified applicants. All scholarships are partial scholarships, i.e., you must pay something. Scholarship applications must be submitted one month (30 days) prior to the All-Day Workshop.
