RETREAT PROGRAM ICODA’s residential retreats have proven to be powerful vehicles for accelerated personal growth, realization and permanent transformation. This human life is a profound cosmic adventure. Premodaya’s work makes the deeper levels of this journey more directly tangible and experience-able for participants (http://www.I-CODA.org). Premodaya’s Master, Gangaji, has said: “The deeper investigation demanded by a spiritual life, revealed the limits of my idea of freedom. I came to recognize that the desire ‘to do whatever I want to do’ is an infantile, or at best, an adolescent view of freedom. To be free to do what I want to do, is not reliable freedom at all. What one simply wants to do, is dictated by impulses, instincts, desires, and other people’s opinions. It’s dictated by memories and by thoughts about what may come next. This is the opposite of freedom!” And Premodaya explains: “True happiness is spiritual happiness. It’s the contentedness that arises when you’re not being ruled by ‘impulses, instincts, desires and opinions’ (worldliness)—not captive to ‘memories and thoughts’ (personality). When instead, you’re identified with the Divine itself. Truth becomes actually available, only when you’re no longer a slave to yourself. Truth, Freedom, inner Peace, God-centeredness—these are potentials. They result from going beyond your limited personal psychology—from moving toward the Universal, the Timeless, the Infinite and Eternal. Ultimately this is achieved through surrender (as reached through love, devotion or trust [‘bhakti’] or through higher knowing [‘wisdom’ or ‘jnani’]), which simply amounts to overcoming restrictive individual will. Overcome your willfulness, and you’ll become truly happy, truly free, truly a willing participant in life—a grateful participant in the higher life, which is the Divinely-oriented life”.

WORKSHOP WITH ICODA FOUNDER SWAMI PREMODAYA

Needs a location

*RSVPs do not represent actual attendance. We average 25-40 people at Workshops (includes in-person & online). WORKSHOP WITH ICODA FOUNDER SWAMI PREMODAYA (http://www.i-coda.org/swami-premodaya/) Premodaya workshops are a day-long opportunity to bathe in the energy of Satsang, while receiving the benefits of individual assistance from a helper operating from a position of God-consciousness and Divine intention. Simply stated, Premodaya works with your soul directly, always for the purpose of advancing you spiritually. Grace activates to the exact degree of an individual’s willingness to allow it. Therefore, Premodaya helps us remove the particular barriers we are carrying, that block the way to actual fulfillment. He works lovingly, gently, safely and effectively, to bring about the precise transformations each person will require to reach permanent, true realization of the transcendent. All-day workshops also function as sustained shaktipat (spiritual transmission), yielding discernibly immediate results, as well as beneficial effects that become apparent in the weeks (and even years) that follow. LOCATION: 2744 Colby Avenue Los Angeles, CA 90064 (and available live online (http://www.i-coda.org/participating-online)) COST: $99.00 USD ($125 day of) Register by calling[masked] or register online here (http://www.i-coda.org/workshops/).
