Retreat Overview

We are delighted to invite you to our Adidam Australia Retreat, a live-in weekend retreat in the beautiful mountains just outside Healesville in Victoria.

Take this opportunity to explore further the Spiritual Wisdom of Adi Da Samraj, or simply come and Bathe in His "Bright" Divine Light.

There will also be plenty of time for chanting, meditation, Sacred Sightings of Adi Da from our video archives, listening to and study of His Divine Words of instruction, and breath and energy practices.

This retreat is the perfect occasion for discovering your relationship to the Divine.

The focus of this retreat will be Aesthetic Ecstasy: Sacred Art and Sacred Culture.

Rather than talking about the art, interpreting it, explaining it, simply look at it, and — by means of perceptually-governed feeling — openly participate in it. That simple looking and participating is how you gain real access to the "aesthetic experience" of "significant form". Indeed, the "aesthetic experience" — which is a kind of ecstasy (or of standing prior to separateness, prior to the ego-"I", prior to the space-time-"locatedness" of "point of view", prior to "objects", and prior to the limits of "objectified" world) — is the fundamental and necessary purpose of right and true art.

Avatar Adi Da Samraj, Transcendental Realism

Retreat Location: Maitripa Centre

The retreat will be held at the Maitripa Centre in the heart of the beautiful Upper Yarra Valley. The Centre's 53 acres of forest and gardens are an ideal venue for contemplative retreats. The grounds are home to wombats, wallabies, deer, and beautiful red and green king parrots.

Maitripa Centre is an hour and a quarter easy drive from Melbourne CBD.
