Program Description

How many times does a talk turn into a fight? Being in love without losing ourselves in fear, reaction, or unconscious patterns is the challenge of any relationship. The trick is to maintain the healthy ego’s boundaries while also surrendering to the soul’s expanse.

It’s not as impossible as it sounds.

This summer, learn the step-by-step process from a spiritual master. Acharya Shunya has positively impacted thousands of relationships by teaching people exactly how to wholeheartedly explore uninhibited, passionate love and at the same time remain strongly self-oriented by prioritizing each person’s own dreams and gifts.

Bold in effect and yet anchored in traditional Vedic wisdom, her teachings guide you through the practical tools of “awakened relationship and enlightened self-absorption” and activate your greater potential through her embodied Shakti. Over the weekend you will learn:

  • How to most effectively relate to each of the three types of Vedic relationships
  • How the four Vedic stages of life can help you better communicate needs
  • How to identify your soul vision through the concept of swadharma and understand who you are in relationship
  • How to differentiate between attachment and love.

This supportive and immersive workshop offers accessible, humorous, real-life, and easy-to-apply insights into developing communication and trust in all spheres of your life.
