My Shaktipat experience was profound. After years of daily meditation, the Shaktipat Retreat dramatically shifted the depth and focus of my experience. I’ve been told that each religion points to the same place; we only have to find the one that speaks a language we can understand in order to gain access to that which we seek. The Siddha path has been generously laid before me, and though I’m new to this lineage, it feels familiar, like home. Swamiji and Rukmini were excellent teachers, who guided and supported me through unprecedented openings. The questions I had were answered with clarity and deep understanding. I feel newly rooted in a path whose direction I could not have anticipated, but for which I am very grateful.
