About Kriya Lightning Retreats

Our international retreats are in-person programs to support those interested in a deeper process of inner work. These retreats typically range from a few days to several weeks, and are held in focused and supportive environments. During retreats, participants explore in-depth practices of inner work to let go of blocks, limiting thought patterns, and stress.

The purpose of our retreats is to provide an uninterrupted space for you to focus on your personal process, in order to move into greater harmony, happiness, and inner wellbeing.

Every retreat we offer is different! Practices and topics can vary depending on each group. Previous retreats have involved meditation, emotional release, Open Awareness, self-inquiry, the exploration and breakdown of various topics, extensive Q&A, practical exercises to develop self awareness, and yogic practices

About the Kriya Lightning Foundation

The Kriya Lightning Foundation is a Hong Kong-based NGO dedicated to helping people around the world. What started off as two people figuring out how to deal with stress and emotional discomfort 10 years ago evolved into a journey to share discoveries of original techniques such as Open Awareness, to help others find peace and happiness within themselves.

We offer practical methods to train the mind and body to let go of attachments and resistances through meditative techniques. Our Open Awareness technique is a culmination of 10 years of refinement, designed with goals to help increase clarity and meet emotional challenges with proven results from testimonials from our global community.
