No Ego - India

In the Fire of Freedom

Prerequisite: No Ego

Liberate yourself as you blaze in the fire of Satsang

This extraordinarily liberating retreat invites you to dive in ever deeper: to face and clear out the core issues and avoidances that are the real cause of our struggle and suffering. Blaze in the fire of Satsang and burn through your remaining patterns of fixation. Includes brand-new work, shared for the first time and extended by one day.

10-day Advanced No Ego in India – with Brandon Bays
PREREQUISITE : No Ego AND Conscious Abundance

Join Brandon and turn up the fire to the nth degree at holy mount Arunachala

Held at what’s considered to be one of the most powerful, spiritually charged sites in India, at the foot of the sacred mountain Arunachala, liberation is said to be possible here in an instant. The powerful, liberating presence of the mountain is experienced as a holy fire, a force of nature that is mystically and mysteriously so omnipresent it pulls apart the scaffolding of the Ego, burns through the lies of our fixation and steals away our minds.

Ancient lore has it that this mountain is the very feet of Shiva – that which dances on the dwarf of fixation, destroys the illusion of ego – where the fire burns brightest and hottest.

Go beyond and even deeper …
with no place to run, no place to hide

Experience 10 full days of immersion in the sacred spiritual fire

You’ll take part in daily yoga, chanting, meditation and twice-a-day Satsang. In addition you’ll explore the caves in which the great Saint Ramana Maharishi sat in enlightenment for decades; circumambulate the mountain; bathe in the spiritual practices in Ramana’s Satsang hall; and visit the ancient Shiva temple (one of the oldest and holiest in India).

It’s a deeply intimate and personal retreat that takes place in the sanctuary and comfort of a lovely boutique Eco-hotel. Here traditional charm is blended with modern amenities through ethnic designs. We have exclusive use of the venue so places are limited to 70 and are offered on a first come first served basis.

The landscaped gardens, set against the majestic backdrop of Mount Arunachala create the perfect ambience for this deeply liberating retreat.

During the Advanced No Ego you will:

  • Dive in ever deeper to face and clear out the core drives and avoidances that cause struggle and suffering
  • Blaze in Satsang and burn through the remaining patterns of your fixation
  • Gain brand new, more profound insights into your strategies and ‘lies’
  • Challenge and pull out the foundations of your ego fixation, letting the whole edifice fall away

What graduates of Advanced No Ego say:

A deep, indescribable joy and unfathomable gratefulness for life

“What to say? Magical India where you receive the direct transmission from the Masters – so palpable it breaks you down, opens you up, turn you upside down and right side up… And leaves you freer and freer as a simple expression of who you truly are! I am eternally grateful for the guidance of Janaki (Brandon) in this endeavor where she expresses her life’s purpose by guiding us skillfully in receiving the Grace of the Masters. The embrace is so big that you can’t help falling in ever more deeply! All the details are so well taken care of that the mind starts to rest.. A deep deep soulful rest.

A true blessing… I am That and so are you!
What a deep joy – indescribable joy – unfathomable gratefulness for life as it plays itself out through the Leila in all its expression and leaves you breathless with awe as you dance in emptiness… This is India!”

Marie-Sylvie (Advanced No Ego 2015)

Attending the Advanced No Ego Retreat was like being led to the water source

“For so many years (decades), I have longed for self-realization. Coming to the Fire of Freedom Retreat for me was like being led to the water source. The presence, the love, the stillness, I don’t know what magic was transpiring there!! People made transitions, a few today, a few the next day; some in the morning, some late evening – it just kept happening. People realized their true Self!! It was utterly unbelievable, yet so real, so profound were the shifts. What was imaginary was made real. Gratitude flows from my heart for being part of this. Dearest Brandon, Papaji, Arunachala, the infinite.. I am deeply grateful. As I become still, knowing that the shift is possible for me, my heart utters silently thank you, thank you…”

Soumya Murthy (Advanced No Ego 2015)

We are still in the moment, so much love, happiness & freedom here
