Sathya Sai Baba

— Sri Satha Sai Baba

Who Is Sai Baba?

Beloved Sri Sathya Sai Baba, Divinity incarnated gave this beautiful prayer to His devotees way back in the 70’s. Baba always stressed that the only difference between Him and you was that He remembers who He is as the Embodiment of Love/God and You forgot! Baba’s message was that He didn’t want our devotion, but rather our transformation!

What a gift this Man of Miracles has brought to the world! 

All are welcome. Join me to Baba’s Ashram “the Abode of Peace” in Puttaparthi India. Although Baba left his physical body in April of 2011, His energy is even stronger. 

This is a wonderful opportunity to be in a field of energy that promotes healing, as well as an opportunity for you to go deeper inward to connect with your God Self.

Life is a game, play it.
Life is a challenge, meet it.
Life is love, live it!
— Sai Baba

Baba’s legacy lives on as the Christ light in your heart. And His Miracles are still happening all over the world. People everywhere are waking up to His teachings, which are based on unity consciousness.  

Miracles are Baba’s calling card!

If India calls to your soul, you can ask Baba to help make it possible.

I am so happy to be returning to the Ashram after 9 years. It’s definitely a heartfelt calling from Spirit to connect once again with the sweet sweet energy available to us in the “Abode of Peace” with Baba. 

Expect Miracles!

Hampi – Medieval Hindu Kingdom

For many years I brought groups to Hampi! Year after year we’d go taking in the sites of bygone ruins, rusty colours, and fascinating landscape. It was Sai Baba who told me to bring groups there. Actually, it’s a long story that I’ll definitely share with you as we sit together in Hampi, the city of ruins!

The journey from Puttaparthi to Hampi is truly an adventure; I love it! Traveling in 4-wheelers along a very bumpy road waving to the locals as we pass them by, leaves us feeling like we’re in a National Geographic documentary! The drive is nearly 6 hours long given the conditions of the road. But as always we laugh, sing and share stories along the way making for great memories!

There are so many beautiful temples in Hampi with over 500 ancient monuments as well as captivating remains of the Vijayanagar Empire dating back around 1500AD. The surrounding terrain is very mysterious with massive boulders seemingly tossed about by giants. What a magnificent sight to behold.

Your photos will be amazing!

Tungabhadra river, Hampi

And then there’s the round basket boats that we take down the Tungabhadra river, surrounded by an array of mysteriously shaped boulders. It’s relaxing, invigorating and stunningly beautiful. Delighting in the beauty, we’re always moved to sing praises to God for absolutely everything.

You will be reminded that you are a miracle-worker every step of the way !

Let’s anchor the light of God and sing praises of His glory in the ruins of Hampi dedicated to Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva!

“The Cave you Fear to Enter Holds the Treasure you Seek”
— Joseph Campbell

For years I’ve dreamt about anchoring the light in the Ajanta and Ellora caves. I’m so happy that 2020 is the year of making dreams come true!  It is my hope that you will join us as we spend time tapping into the secrets held in these mysterious caves!

How did they do it?  Could it be the result of ancient aliens? 

Can you believe that there are 30 Ajanta caves and 34 Ellora caves carved into rock, thousands of years ago? And not only that, the stone they removed is nowhere to be found? This monumental UNESCO World heritage site offers you an opportunity to tap into your imagination and intuition to see what you can “see” beyond the body’s eyes.

The Ajanta Caves are completely draped in Buddhism while the Ellora is a blend of Hinduism, Buddhism and Jainism. We’ll be doing a lot of walking, so be sure to pack your good walking shoes! 

As always, we’ll begin our days with prayer and meditation as well as group sharing and discussion based on the teachings of A Course in Miracles, Buddhism and Hinduism. In the morning we’ll start with a little yoga exercise in praise of  the morning Sun and then off we go anchoring the light in love, praise and gratitude for absolutely everything.

Feel like you want to discover for yourself the genius in our ancestral DNA? Join us. The mystery awaits you.

Built in the 8th century, unlike any other temples, it was excavated downward from a basaltic slope, largely exposing it to sunlight.
