Real Happiness® is a Vedic Meditation learning and retreat centre based in Rishikesh, India. Rishikesh has long been reputed to be the capital of Yoga and one of the most important forms of this art is Meditation. In fact, most of what we practice in Yoga is to be able to achieve a single pose in which we can practice Meditation. The centre offers Meditation retreats which also include Yoga, Wellness, and Holistic programs and study as well as an insight into Indian Culture and spirituality. For those interested in sharing their knowledge as facilitators, we have advanced Meditation Teacher Training programs as well.
For beginners who are just stepping foot into the world of spirituality, you can opt for a 1 or 2-week meditation retreat or program, which will also include daily Yoga Asana and Pranayama classes, daily detox sessions, as well as a structure laid out to help you understand Indian philosophy and the beginning of Kundalini Meditation. You don't need to be from a spiritual background to start noticing profound results in yourself. These courses are designed for beginners and will help you gain insights into your own issues of stress, anxiety, and depression.
For advanced practitioners who have been on a journey of self-exploration for some time, we will go deeper into Kundalini Meditation, study scriptures from the Bhagavad Gita, structural lifestyle changes to strengthen your Sadhana, and much more. We teach based on what we know ourselves and have experienced. We help you to realize the knowledge that already exists inside you but you haven't tapped into as yet.
Fortunately or unfortunately, there is no official affiliation that is recognized as a platform for a mediation course like the Yoga Alliance. This may be because although one can teach you the techniques of meditation as we do, the actual learning comes from your own self-practice, disciple, and dedication.
Seeing everything with your eyes closed
Real Happiness offers one the opportunity to learn various techniques and styles of meditation with detailed study and ample practice time. The practical application of techniques allows our teachers to solve all doubts that may arise while on the program whether you are a beginner or advanced level practitioner. The teachers are also available to continually guide you after you leave the centre. Our techniques and methods are the same as those written in the Vedas, the most ancient books ever written.
Most people in the world are still confused about what exactly is Meditation thanks to a lot of wrong information out there. It’s not just sitting cross-legged and closing your eyes.Read more
Change is the only constant. Yet, we are often afraid of change and try to keep everything the same always. In this fast-paced world of science and knowledge, India has managed to maintain its traditions, rituals, and culture. Our retreat programs allow you to learn Yoga and Meditation while tasting a bit of our rich Indian culture.
The routine is quite straightforward, start your day with Yoga and Meditation classes, spend the larger chunk of the day exploring the temples and ashrams, absorbing the energy of the Holy Ganga while resting on her banks, explore the cafes, restaurant, and village markets as well. Come back and end your day with Satsangs, Kirtans, and Aartis at the centre before you retire for bed. Enjoy homemade yummy Indian cuisine while you're here and we can also guide you on how to adopt the practices and food your taste here into your daily life after you leave. All programs include food, accommodation, theory, and practical classes as well as pick-ups and drop-offs to the nearest airport and more. Breakaway from your usual routines and ways of thinking and discover a newer version of yourself.
In the old days, when there weren’t so many distractions, there weren’t so many types of meditation. In our fast-paced information age, it has become very important to find different ways of meditating that are better suited to each one’s capabilities and lifestyle. Our mediation retreats offer an opportunity to learn various Indian techniques of meditation as well as the origin of these techniques along with an insight into our traditions and culture. Even in our beginner programs, you will learn yoga asanas, pranayama, shatkarma, mantra chanting, and much more. This is most appropriate for the education seekers, nomad travelers as well as those just looking for a break, and a great way to explore Rishikesh and India.
The retreat will also involve day trips to explore nearby attractions in Rishikesh such as waterfalls, ashrams, heritage sites, and much more. Breathtaking mountain views and tasty Sattvic food will give both your body and mind a thorough cleanse and refresh. Find your inner peace and how to maintain this calm after you leave as well. Everyone’s usual conundrum when they go on a retreat is how they will be able to maintain this state of mind after they leave. Sanctity and peacefulness of the space. We will show you how. We are waiting to hear from you.
