Throughout history, people seeking a deeper spiritual life have gone on journeys to holy sites to immerse themselves in a place of refuge. Setting aside the activities, distractions, and pressures of daily life and engaging in longer periods of daily sādhana has long been a key component of reaching into the depths of one’s awareness. Swami Khecaranatha has designed an opportunity for such a pilgrimage at our retreat center, Nityakash, on Maui, Hawaii. Spending extended time with him is a key aspect of these pilgrimages.

These in-depth journeys include a daily schedule of meditation and classes, work-trade/seva (help with cooking meals and tending the property) with a nominal fee for room and board, group activities, and free time to explore the beaches and beauty of Hawaii. Our wi-fi enables you to do remote work during your stay. 

Nityakash is named after Bhagavan Nityananda, the satguru of Khecaranatha’s lineage, who said, “The heart is the most sacred of all places, go there and roam.
