“SUCHNESS Retreat ”
Be who you are
allow the river of Bliss to flow free
it is life manifesting in the eternal Here and Now.

Purification, Clarity and Love with
Ida Resi, Sahaj & Satya


13 - 17 September 2020

at Bodhi Bhavan, Portugal


We are honored, blessed and happy to invite you to this unique retreat, where 3 living dharma holders will come together to share with us their unique and authentic way to manifest from the truth of pure being in the world.


This unique gathering at the sacred land of Bodhi Bhavan (Portugal) will be the first time the three of them will hold a retreat together. They will share their living wisdom in a simple and direct way, inspiring us to see beyond our mind obscurities and limitations, allowing to live life fully in the holiness and wholeness that we are.


Satya and Sahaj met Ida Resi first in Bali in 2010. From that moment, they knew that they were connected, and will be connected, for eternity, and that they are here to bring healing (wholeness) wherever they are. Each one has come to a spiritual maturity and integration in their own natural way, embracing their fullness in totality, knowing this is a never ending blossoming event that goes beyond any mental understanding. It is in their ordinary simple presence that they share the extra-ordinary ways to be connected to the wholeness and holiness of life in every breath and in every moment.
