Have you heard about meditation and don’t know where to start? Or maybe you have tried to meditate on your own but are not reaping the positive results you are supposed to get. Discovering the right tools, techniques and teachings to help you with the process of meditation can be difficult, because most meditation experts lack spiritual knowledge and true meditation experience. For example, most experts teach mind-control to achieve meditation. This is not a step towards meditation, but a step backwards.
You have not found the right meditation guidance and teacher. You feel like most books and videos complicate meditation versus simplifying it. Or, they might be too cheesy. You feel frustrated because your mind talks too much every time you close your eyes. You feel like you cannot focus or concentrate and are constantly distracted. You waste time online trying to find different ways to meditate and when you try nothing happens. When you attend a meditation class you feel like everyone else can sit quietly and you cannot – you might even feel bad for fidgeting too much or making little noises. You feel out of place for even wanting to learn meditation, so you can’t really ask anyone for help. You have invested time and money in meditation programs and you didn’t get any results. You want it badly, but for some reason it’s just not happening.
If you are looking to begin or deepen your spiritual path, experience peace, joy and calmness, gain insight, have clarity, reduce stress and connect to your true self, meditation is the answer. However, without the much-needed right guidance, tools and techniques, you will lack the real benefits that this practice can offer you. When you do not start your meditation practice with the right tools and understanding, you will continue to wander hopelessly without reaping the fruits of your efforts.
Meditation is the highest state of your soul. Meditation cannot be taught, because it is not something you can do. However, the process to enter meditation can be learned. This systematic process helps you to become healthier, balanced, focused, clear-minded, without tension, be unaffected by emotions and thoughts, experience peace and calmness, and most importantly connect to your true self. On the surface, meditation can be merely perceived as a relaxation exercise, though the science and spirituality behind meditation goes much deeper. For thousands of years, the process of meditation was taught to help purify the body and mind, so that a practitioner can burn karma and awaken their soul. This included breathing techniques, concentration, yoga postures, practicing non-violence, discipline of mind, body and speech, fasting, truthfulness, and non-attachment among others.
“Purnam” in Sanskrit means perfection. With a blend of intensive breathing techniques and yoga postures, Acharya Shree Yogeesh developed the Purnam System, which helps cleanse your body of toxins and negativities, immediately bringing clarity, a sense of lightness, reduced tension and the state of relaxation that enables you to experience deep states of meditation. This is a new and unique system not taught elsewhere. In total the system includes 84 breathing combinations that help to detoxify the lungs, purify the blood and pump oxygen to the nerves and brain, while the postures help to tone and cleanse the muscles. The Purnam System is deeply connected to the spiritual teachings of the yogic system of nonviolence, self-improvement, meditation, and connecting to one’s highest self (soul). The Purnam System ultimately helps purify your body and mind in order to help you experience soul through meditation.

Yes, our meditation retreat is for everyone, whether you are just curious about meditation or have been meditating for years this retreat will benefit you.
Our founder, Acharya Shree Yogeesh, developed the Purnam Yoga® System which helps detoxify your body and mind so that you can enter deep states of meditation. This system is not taught elsewhere. In fact, most guests that are experienced in meditation and have learned elsewhere say that what they thought was meditation wasn’t really meditation. After learning the system they can see a tremendous difference in their experiences.
We teach a special process to help you reach meditation. Most teachers will focus on the mind as the obstacle; however, the true process is to first purify and discipline your body, then bypass (not control) the mind through several techniques so it doesn’t bother you. Finally, you will then be totally relaxed so that you can connect to your soul and experience true peace.
Part of the meditation retreat includes 12 mantras, plus special activation mantras to help you bypass your mind and activate your center this way you can enter meditation.
