Surrounded by 72 acres of beautiful meditation gardens and wild forest in Northern California’s Sierra Foothills, the Ananda Meditation Retreat is an ideal setting for a rejuvenating, inner experience.
Our Meditation Retreat has been a place of deep meditation and sincere devotion for fifty years. Long before that, the Maidu Indians held this to be sacred land. The beauty and presence of the Divine is tangibly felt by all who come here.
Chill Sacramento is a vision shared by many: a safe, neutral space where you can discover and explore yourself, find common ground with others, and learn how to participate in creating communities of belonging.
We are realizing this vision through educational activities that focus on sharing perspectives and practices for personal wellness and development, cultural understanding and celebration, volunteer resiliency, social innovation and servant leadership.

During his training as an energy healer (1999-2005) Guy discovered that he was able, via meditation, to traverse the frequencies above those associated with the Auric layers. It was during these “trips” to the higher frequencies that he discovered he could communicate with the energetic entities that existed on the various levels of our multiverse. These entities included the OM, beings created from the energies of the original manifestation who pervade the omniverse that is the Origin, the creator of the God of our multiverse, the Source Entity, its peers, the co-creators, and the creator of the co-creators itself, the Origin (referred to as the “Absolute” in Hindu texts).

This website is an effort to present the knowledge of meditation to the beginners and busy people of today in a simple and easy to understand language. We have started from an absolute beginner’s perspective on meditation and then we have slowly transitioned to intermediate and later on more advanced techniques. Though, this website has been created from the point of view of absolute beginners even the more advanced users will also find it very useful. You must have read or listen in your yoga classes that in order to meditate properly, a focused attention on breathing is all that we require as a first step. Later on, as we go deeper into our practice, this become an almost second nature to meditate. However, it is often easier said than done owing to the ever flicking nature of the mind. However, once you understand the concept and make a daily routine, things starts to fall in line.
The website is a sort of living book and requires an active involvement on the part of the reader. The meditation instructions and techniques mentioned here require few words but demand unlimited after thoughts. You can not evaluate their effectiveness unless you try them. You must try them for getting some real benefit from them.

Padmacahaya International Institute for Inner Study, or Padmacahaya for short, is an organization that serves the public in the domain of spiritual growth by opening the heart with a commitment to help others to be physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually healthier by relying on Divine Energy of Love and Light. The term “Inner Study” means the organization performs its mission through instructing others in the journey within, through the use of the heart, not by searching for something outside the self.
