In the Lap of the Master


In the Lap of the Master


In the Lap of the Master is a 1-day event with Sadhguru at Isha Institute of Inner-sciences on July 3rd, 2021. For a seeker, every opportunity to be in the presence of a living master is precious; it has the potential to open new doors to deeper dimensions within. In the Lap of the Master is an immense privilege to be in Sadhguru’s presence and energy, and receive his profound wisdom. Rather than a structured program with new practices to learn, the event offers uncharted time with Sadhguru where he candidly unfolds different dimensions of life. This event is open to everyone ages 15 and above.
