"Meditating in the company of Somananda is next level. My meditations are so much more deep and profound when meditating next to him. He is a beacon of light and a walking encyclopedia. I feel so grateful to have him as my guide and guru. If you want to evolve on the spiritual path you absolutely MUST meditate with Soma in person. It will forever change you."
"I have only ever done online courses up until now so the Shaktipat Retreat was my first in-person experience with Somananda. I was able to go so much higher in my meditations and achieve so much more spiritually in his presence. I definitely felt the outpouring of Grace!"
"I learned many new meditation techniques and how to meditate properly in this retreat. My relationship to the Divine became much more real and profound and I learned so much about myself. This was really an unforgettable experience."
