Bhava Spandana Program is an advanced residential meditation program designed by Sadhguru.
The word Bhava literally means “sensation.” Spandana can be translated as “resonance.” Through powerful meditative processes, the Bhava Spandana Program creates an intensely energetic situation, where one can transcend their individuality and the limitations of the five sense organs. Through this, participants have the opportunity to tap into an exuberant experience of oneness and resonance with the rest of existence, and a state of unbounded love and joy. Bhava Spandana is the next step you can take after Inner Engineering, moving further from intellectual understanding into the experiential realm.
It is being offered as an 8-day program since the start of the pandemic:
Day 1-4: This precautionary period and preparatory phase creates a strong foundation for you to become more receptive to Bhava Spandana in the ambience of a powerfully consecrated space. During this time you will learn Surya Kriya, which brings balance and stability to the system. You will also be guided through daily Sadhana (yogic practice), and receive powerful tools to deepen your experience of Inner Engineering.
Day 5-8: Bhava Spandana Program (no new practices will be taught during this time)
This program is facilitated by Isha instructors, at the Isha Yoga Center, India, at the Isha Institute of Inner-sciences, USA, and occasionally at various other centers across the world.
Completion of the Inner Engineering Program (including the Shambhavi Mahamudra Kriya) is a prerequisite for attending this program.
BSP made me believe that we can really find heaven on earth. I used to look at the things I don't have and forget about the things that life gave me. Now I am grateful for every moment, every person and everything I have in my life. I feel so much love now, sometimes my heart can't take it... Peace and Love.
In so many ways Bhava Spandana was the turning point for my life. It’s quite unbelievable the kind of energy situation, peace, stillness, vibrance and joy I felt within myself. I never knew something so huge existed within me, how it could remain hidden for so long. For the first time I bowed down to another human being with all my heart – and that changed the quality of my life in a huge way.
I went into the Bhava Spandana Program with no idea of what lay ahead and no expectations of the things I’d take away, but the depth and scale of the weekend I had will remain with me forever. To transcend my normal life, see this world with different eyes and be released from so many of my past anxieties was an unimaginable experience.
