As fundamentally divine beings, we are all designed to be joyful and content. There is no need to settle for less. The stresses of life, however, often sabotage us with negative thinking, emotional issues and physical toxicity.

The Three-Body Purification Retreat is designed to flush out accumulated toxicity, interrupt obsessive patterns of thinking, and resolve buried feelings.

The detailed practices will allow you to gradually rise above the mind, make right choices, and find joy in each day, despite external circumstances.

Sri Shyamji Bhatnagar, the Chakra Institute’s founder, offers more than five decades of experience and has guided thousands of people around the world. His unique ability to produce the ethereal element of soorya akasha (golden, healing sound) with his voice allows many people to experience powerful changes.

Through his chants, teachings, meditation and dietary protocol, you will begin to purify your three bodies: the physical body, the subtle body (feelings) and the causal body (thoughts). Many participants have found this program to be life transforming. See further down for testimonials.

About the Three Bodies:

Physical body: Between the cells of our physical body, there is considerable space. The other two bodies (causal and subtle, described below) pervade this space—like radio waves pervade the “solid” walls of a room.

Subtle body: The seat of our feelings. The subtle body has seven major spinning wheels of light energy (chakras), energized by the five basic elements: earth, water, fire, air and akasha (space). Elements—and combinations of elements—play an essential role in determining how we feel. Under conditions of stress and toxicity, the elements lose their purity and potency. This may have a negative effect on our feelings. For example, when the earth element is in abundance, we feel solid and grounded, and our confidence is strengthened, while if earth is dispersed, we may feel weak and sluggish. When air is plentiful, we may feel buoyant and more loving; if polluted, it can cause us to feel uncaring and lonely.

Causal body: Where our thoughts reside. Human beings, in the process of survival, evaluate changes in their environment first in the causal body by means of thought. Thoughts generate feelings in the subtle body, which are then expressed in the physical body. Thoughts, feelings, and sensations influence one another.

About the purification process:

The retreat's dietary protocol will address allergies, skin problems, headache, joint pain, sore throat, constipation, fatigue, and other health issues. We experience these symptoms when our lymphatic system is compromised. The ayurvedic summer protocol will help to cleanse the toxins stored in our fat cells, stabilize your mood, and increase mental clarity.

The diet is designed to enhance fat metabolism in the cells. Because fat is a stable fuel, you will experience a sense of calm when you enter the fat metabolism mode. You will have an opportunity to learn how to prepare and enjoy organic, gluten-free purifying vegetarian meals. The diet will be supplemented with cleansing and digestive herbs and supplements and will help to detox and nourish your lymphatic system.

It takes four days to purify the physical body. As Sri Shyamji’s sounds and mantras are chanted, emphasis shifts to the subtle body and feelings that have been buried beneath our awareness. The subtle body begins to respond to the sounds, and there is increased awareness towards them. This supports the purification process. The purified energy from the physical and subtle body is now refined enough to penetrate the causal body. The process of thinking itself may begin to feel clearer.

Sri Shyamji and participants chant sounds that produce Soorya (golden) akasha (space), expanding and strengthening the path of subtle energy to enable lasting healing and create clarity of mind. This highly refined akasha pushes dense and toxic residue out of the thinking body.

When we are purified, our breathing rate drops and we meditate with ease. 

Effects of the Purification in the Three bodies:

Physical body: Physical purification sharpens all five senses. It inspires the desire to keep the body healthy. The dietary protocol is intended to cleanse the internal organs (liver, kidney, bladder, spleen, blood and intestines), strengthen the immune system, and decrease sensitivity to allergens. InnerTuning movements associated with each chakra are practiced and assist the purification process. Regular exercise and a healthy diet become part of our routine.When the chakra rhythms are in order, our circadian rhythm is in order as well. This, in turn, allows our body to naturally have 2 daily bowel movements. 

Subtle Body: Purification of the subtle body cleanses our feelings and emotions. The negative ones may have been buried beneath our awareness. Sometimes, old memories from early childhood emerge. This is part of the purification process. Since all participants are present for the same purpose, they provide a supportive environment for one another. As participants become in touch with their real feelings on a deeper level, they begin to lay the groundwork for improvement in relationships, creating contentment as competitiveness evaporates—one can truly feel happy when others are also succeeding. Helping others becomes a reward in and of itself. Sri Shyamji’s sounds and mantras act deeply on the subtle body, increasing awareness of the effects sounds have on body, mind and spirit. Many have reported a greater sound awareness as the retreat’s ends.

Causal Body: We discuss deep questions such as: “Who Am I?”; “Why Am I Here?”; and “How do I create and maintain wellness and happiness in my life?” The educational experience is empowering on many levels. The process of thinking itself may begin to feel clearer. Interest in abstract thinking naturally emerges, along with the desire to turn the senses inward (pratyahara). We chant sounds and mantras that produce soorya (golden) akasha. This highly refined akasha pushes dense, toxic akasha out of the causal body. The absorption of soorya akasha purifies apana, and helps to integrate the three bodies, facilitating meditation and life transformation. Consequently, the breathing rate drops dramatically and participants feel freer to meditate, refining thinking and facilitating life transformation.

The three bodies are energized by five major pranas, or vital life forces. Of these five, the apana prana is the detoxifier.

Apana prana normally operates below the navel, where it facilitates bodily functions of elimination. The stress of modern life putrifies apana, however, affecting the purity of higher pranas. Therefore, different regions of the body can manifest disorders ranging from constipation to depression, memory problems to dementia, and even schizophrenia. When the apana is purified, the circadian rhythm will be reset and sleep, digestion and bowel rhythms will improve. You will feel grounded, clear, stable and light.

The light of the chakras travels through subtle pathways called microchakras™. Blockages in the microchakras cause stress, anxiety, addictive behavior and lack of confidence. When open, these pathways lead to a more meaningful, productive, and joyful life, in harmony with the laws of nature.

Comments from Previous Participants

“A lot of feelings came up during the retreat. I experienced a deep emotional/mental release of past trauma and of a profound sense of inadequacy and shame that I thought had been resolved. Sadness still comes and goes, though I also feel a deep compassion for the suffering of others. I notice that my skin feels extra sensitive and soft and my energy is renewed. Overall, the retreat for me was transformational . I feel like I have a new skin!  I feel more deeply committed to my sadhana. Thank you Shyamji and Marina for providing the space to enhance my spiritual development.” With gratitude, , Lynn, psychotherapist and art therapist, NYC

“As a participant in the work of the Chakra Institute and its founder, Sri Shyamji Bhatnagar, for 45 years, each class and workshop has been an exceptional step on the road to reaching what we call the Self. However, the Central Canal Purification was an experience, not beyond description, but a further clarification on this path, an extraordinary step in the Journey. I highly recommend this workshop for anyone wanting to feel better, be happier, more composed, or electing to take a step through a well-crafted path to the Self.” - Marcia Miller,  Retired Museum Director, Board Member, Chakra Institute

“What to say where words are superfluous to express that content, love, blessing…. complete fulfillment with joy, smile and happiness that adorns every new day.  With new enthusiasm to realize what it brings and be completely there in action and observation.  Thank you for that gift to realize, feel and know. This purification

has helped me a lot to tune in, observe and be with myself as much as possible and at the same time I have the joy of being with others and sharing what I have, which was given to me at birth - Life.  My mood was stable.  With immense gratitude and joy to see, hear, know and share you again. “ - Liljana Pavlovic, Artist, Switzerland

"The purification provided the energetic sustenance to let my awareness, for the first time in my life, be able to express with certainty " I AM ". During the purification, when the class was related to the fifth chakra, I was able to witness what could be call, nadis darshan. I saw the nadis in the right channel, how they are like nerve ending communicating to the central canal. the fire of the central canal was transparent, I saw it like the heat from a turbine." - Enrique, Video Production Director 

“Everything is going well! I followed your advice and so I get up early, although I initially had a lot of resistance to it. But you're right. I feel very energetic. I already did my InnerTuning exercises before my morning meditation etc. It is really blissful to have the whole day in front of you! I feel blessed to have this purification. Sri Shyamji helped me a lot on my own way!! I am grateful for all the information you shared, the organization etc. Thanks!”- Hilde Arnout, Belgium
