Intensives in Tiruvannamalai, India

Intensives in Tiru with Sal can be a paradigm shifting experience. You will be living freedom from the moment the intensive begins, all day every day. You will meet beautiful new friends who are engaged in discovering and living their own natural human condition of freedom and health. Tiruvannamalai, with Mount Arunachala, is a very poweful place for this life-changing paradigm shift to happen.

We will be holding 3 Freedom Intensives in January and February 2023. They are 10 days long each. We will also be holding Freedom Meetings in between the intensives for you who have joined an intensive. These will be a few hours a day to continue being together in freedom.

You can join one, two or all three intensives. Spending the full two month season here at Aruncahala with Sal, Bindu and friends can be a hugely transformative time.


We will also be making available videos of the intensives for people who are not be able to travel here. They will be available to stream on our web portal. They will not be live streamed, but available shortly after each session. People who do attend in person will also be able to access them. You will also be able to email questions for Sal to answer.

There are no Covid requirments to enter India - no PCR test, no proof of vaccine, no online form. And getting a 5-year mulitple entry E-Visa is simple, online. 

We will help make your trip easy. We help with accommodations, taxis, restuarants, money exchange and anything else you may need.
