Retreat Center in Asheville, NC

Community Events Offered by Samasati

Community Events put on by Rajyo and Vinit include the following:

Weekly Monday Meditation Evenings

The intention is to create a space of spiritual community where we can drop deeper into meditation together.

  • A space to come, drop inside, let go of time and mind
  • A place to unwind and relax into your Inner Being
  • A way to breathe deeply and listen to the sound of your own heart beating and your own Soul whispering
  • Space to share the silent depths beyond words with others

We will share a different meditation from various traditions all designed to quiet the mind, soften the heart, and connect more deeply with True Nature. Sometimes we will simply sit in silence and then do an inquiry practice afterward.  

We will have a particular theme for each six-week cycle (three evening sessions), such as Acceptance, Humility, Grace, Guidance, Trust, Surrender, etc. Here we will explore how we can cultivate these qualities and see what blocks we have to developing them.  

6.15pm – Gather and settle

6.30-8.00pm – Meditation, inquiry and sharing 

There will be a fee of $15 per session ($40 for three sessions).

Monthly Meaningful Movie Night

Inspiring Performing Arts Salon

Special Presentations by Spiritual Teachers and Activist Leaders

We periodically host presentations and experiences with visiting spiritual teachers, thought leaders or experts on specific ecological or social justice issues—such as climate change, racial equity, etc.

Sweat Lodges

The lodges are scheduled on major sacred days such as full or new moon, equinox and solstice dates. We follow the accepted ceremonial protocols of the Lakota, Cherokee and other Native American traditions, allowing for a deep purification and amplification of prayers and blessings.

Dynamic Meditation

Every Saturday Morning, 7 am

In daily life, we pick up so much psychic clutter that turns into emotional baggage that weighs us down. Dynamic Meditation is a powerful one-hour meditation that helps you bring up and release all that you don’t need, freeing you to feel more alive and joyful and more fully yourself.

Full Moon Fire Circle

Weather permitting we host a community fire circle gathering on Full Moon.  A chance to be outside in Nature and watch the moon coming up. An informal gathering where we share food and drink and good company.

Hosting Spiritual Teachers and Activist Leaders

We periodically host visiting spiritual teachers, thought leaders or experts on specific ecological or social justice issues—such as climate change, racial equity, etc.
