Buy Tickets Here Yogiraj returns to Mount Shasta to share his Experience and impart advanced ancient yogic techniques.   The Benefactor’s retreat specifically provides significant time with Yogiraj in a smaller group. Those who return again and again to meet Yogiraj know that the most valuable part of a retreat is simply being in his presence.  Yogiraj’s constant state of transmission compels the mind to quiet, the heart rate to slow, and the body to still such that one enters a different dimension of consciousness. Attendees of this year’s Benefactor Retreat will enjoy a relaxed program, sharing the simple majesty of Mount Shasta with Yogiraj.  The program will offer attendees the opportunity to meditate with Yogiraj and receive his powerful transmission while doing so. Note: this year, Attendees will focus on a single advanced Yogic technique throughout the Retreat to allow for deeper refinement and synthesis. Attendees will also partake of Mount Shasta’s natural healing elements, amplified by Yogiraj’s presence, during outdoor excursions. There will be formal and informal discourse (Satsang), allowing attendees to present their questions to Yogiraj.  Finally, Yogiraj’s wife, Gurumata, a Yogini in her own right, will meditate with attendees in the Joyous Divine Mother Meditation. The Organizing Team values inclusion and community, and recognizes and respects each person’s desire to come before Yogiraj. These Retreats are private programs, scheduled and structured to ensure maximum benefit to attendees. The Organizers request that all persons conduct themselves in a manner respectful of the programs and of the attendees who have made the effort to participate in the programs. Please know that Yogiraj conducts many events that are free and open to the public. Contact us: Cyndi Burke @ (805) 481-1869 / Malathi Ruppa @ (805) 234- 5964 Email: [email protected]

What hazards should I be aware of? Poisonous/ irritating plants (It should be possible for those who are sensitive to these plants to avoid them. We will have rubbing alcohol and Tecnu to remove oils/irritants from poison oak and poison hemlock.): Most sites include some invasive poison hemlock, which is poisonous if eaten, and skin contact with it may result in a rash. There is also a lot of native poison oak around the edges of sites 3 and 4, and in some cases in areas where we might be walking. Most of it is marked with red-painted stakes. Some sites have native stinging nettle, although most of it is marked with flagging tape, too. Contact with this plant might result in stings and temporary discomfort. Creatures: Site 5 has a very active honeybee hive in a log. If you have an allergy to bee stings, please bring your epi-pen. The site is very large, so we should be able to have sensitive individuals work on the other side of the site, but it never hurts to be prepared. Pacific Coast ticks have sometimes been found in the park. This tick does not transmit Lyme disease, but can transmit 4 other diseases. We advise volunteers to check their bodies (especially exposed skin) for ticks after the work day. Most of our restoration sites include somewhat steep slopes that volunteers should be able to walk up and down in order to participate.
