What are the siddhis and what will I learn?
Siddhis are super-normal yogic powers, such as profound intuitive knowledge, levitation, invisibility, etc. Essentially, the siddhis represent the yogic approach to manifesting your desires from the deepest, most powerful layers of consciousness.
We have all heard of the concept of manifestation and the Law of Attraction. Ancient yogis developed manifestation to a degree not even dreamed of in the West. The pinnacle of that development is the legendary siddhis that defy belief. However, even a little practice of this yogic technology, based on Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras (the authoritative ancient text of Yoga Philosophy), can greatly enhance your ability to manifest your desires in your daily life–and accelerate all the benefits of meditation.
Although this wonderful yogic technology is rarely understood or experienced today, Patanjali focused fully one-fourth of his Yoga Sutras on the siddhis. Why? Because the technique that unlocks the siddhis, samyama, offers a breakthrough in human potential, growth, and healing. Although you won’t soon find yourself flying through the skies like an ancient adept, samyama will systematically suffuse your mind and body with blissful prana (life-force), awaken refined perception and enhanced intuition, and bring your life into a Flow of grace such that Nature will spontaneously support your desires and heal your body, mind, heart, and spirit.
You can expect this meditation siddhi retreat to help you develop:
- Heightened intuition and subtle perception.
- Loving kindness, compassion, and empathetic joy, for yourself and others.
- Greatly deepened meditation that will heal, soothe, and strengthen you in body, mind, and spirit.
- Tangible access to more creative levels of mind.
- The ability to manifest your desires and receive the support of nature in all you do.
- Facility with samyama, the experiential basis of the legendary yogic powers.
- An understanding of the more esoteric principles of the Yoga Sutras.
Ajayan’s approach, gained over nearly 50 years of his dedicated practice based on instruction received from yogis of India’s Himalayas, offers easy, systematic access to this profound level of experience and knowledge expounded by the great sage Patanjali. In addition to Patanjali’s teachings, Ajayan integrates Tantric and Advaitic practices that prepare you to have the deepest and most authentic experience of Patanjali’s sutras. Transform the quality of your life by attending this six-week, live, online course. Hope you can join us!
I learned more effective meditation techniques at Ajayan’s weekend retreat than months of learning with other teachers and methods. If you’re serious about improving the quality of your life, learn from the best to be the best possible you. – Susie A.
Since the retreat I’ve been amazed at the energy I feel. It has completely up-leveled my energy, my joy, and a sense of overall well-being and lightness. What an unexpected gift! – Jyoti Paramjyoti
The Monday morning after the retreat, I felt so calm while doing some activity (such as driving). I normally feel this calmness during a good meditation, but never felt this during activity. It felt really good. Since the retreat I’ve felt more mental clarity; I’m transcending almost everyday with the personal mantra (this never happened before); and I feel much more motivated towards my spiritual development. I am SO glad I attended the retreat. Thank you for doing it! – Chenthil Kumar
I would like to express my gratitude to Ajayan for hosting a awesome retreat. I gained so much more than I had expected from the experience, and loved meeting and getting to everyone there! It is so much fun to come together with like minded souls and share an experience like this retreat. I hope to return for another retreat soon. Thank you! – Melissa Guise

Ajayan’s meditation journey
Ajayan has been exploring and teaching a variety of meditation practices since 1970 and is the founder of Effortless Mind® meditation.
In the early 70’s, he spent years studying in residence under Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, founder of the Transcendental Meditation Program®, and for nearly a decade, taught the TM Program®. Since then he has traveled the globe continuing an impassioned exploration of consciousness and developing human potential through various meditation and yogic practices, specializing in traditional Tantric meditation practices as well as Advaitic (non-dual) meditation.
From 1994 to 1998 Ajayan studied with India’s most widely revered living woman saint, Mata Amritanandamayi (Ammachi, the “hugging saint”), living at her main ashram in Kerala, India, and serving as the meditation teacher there. While in India, Ajayan also spent time with holy men and yogis in the Himalayas of Uttarakhand—a haven for saints throughout the ages—and researched the spiritual practices indigenous to that area. Later, he studied under the Tantric teacher, Swami Anandakapila.
Having made a study of meditation his life, and having instructed and guided thousands in meditation in North America, Australia, Europe, and India, Ajayan has gained a reputation as a consummate meditation teacher.
Is this the TM Sidhi Program?
Short answer: No. Ajayan feels immense gratitude to his first teacher, Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, who he considers a modern enlightened sage. Yet, Ajayan does not teach the TM Program® or TM-Sidhi® Program. Instead, what you will learn in this course is based directly on Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras and Tantric and Advaitic teachings that shed additional light on the siddhis and their role and place in the Vedic schema of the evolution of consciousness towards Enlightenment. For this reason, even if you have learned the TM-Sidhi Program, you are sure to benefit greatly from this course.
