3-Day Online Hridaya Easter Retreat

April 10-12, 2020

The Path of Love and Surrender to the Divine

By Conscious Donation*

Journeying into the Realm of the Spiritual Heart

Love & Compassion

In this period of fear, panic, anxiety, and dismay, we can find ourselves being compelled to re-evaluate our lives—a natural yearning to go deeper can emerge that leads us to seek the true meaning of life and to contemplate the impermanence of everything manifest.

Ultimately, we are inspired to search for the Truth, for the ineffable dimension within ourselves. And, what can be more auspicious than Easter time, a period of renewal and celebration of Eternity?

Thus, this 3-Day Easter silent meditation retreat offered by donation* with senior Hridaya teacher Antoaneta Gotea (right) is an invitation to turn our attention inward and look for the Light within ourselves, to discover that the highest phenomenon that a human being can experience is the compassion that resides in our own hearts.

We will journey into the realm of the Heart with the teachings of Jesus seen through the wisdom of Advaita Vedanta and Bhakti Yoga. We will turn our attention to Love, the most powerful force in the Universe, and practice not only for ourselves but for the benefit of all human beings.

This retreat will be livestreamed internationally via Zoom and will be available on-demand. Registration is by donation.* No previous meditation or yoga experience is required to participate.


This retreat features guided meditations and teachings, including:

  • Bhakti Yoga—the path of surrender
  • The Heart Center according to the teachings of Ramana Maharshi
  • Prayer and the Prayer of the Heart
  • Jnana and Bhakti Yoga in Jesus’s teachings
  • The profound meaning of Jesus’ resurrection
  • Loving-kindness and compassion

“Blessed are the pure of heart, for they shall see God.” –Jesus
