Kriya Lightning Retreats

Our international retreats are in-person programs to support those interested in a deeper process of inner work. These mental wellness, meditation and yoga 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 wellness and spiritual 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.

Retreat Locations

Our meditation retreats are offered in locations in and outside of Hong Kong that centre around providing quiet, serene, and conducive environments for inner work, healing and personal transformation.


Rather than being limited to one physical location, our retreats are offered in various centres around the world. We’ve previously offered retreats in Bali, Thailand, India, Portugal, Australia, and Hong Kong. If you’re interested in hosting a retreat in your country or suggesting a venue, please contact us directly at

  • If I want to enrol in a mental wellness retreat, how much will it cost?
    Our retreats are offered without charge. Accessibility is important to us! We believe that everyone, regardless of their financial circumstances, deserves to have access to support and tools that can help them feel happier and freer. Donations are welcomed to help cover the costs of venue rental and operations for retreats. As a non-government funded organisation, we rely on the generosity of individual donations to offer retreats and classes. Donations also help to cover the costs of sponsoring scholarship applicants. Unless otherwise stated, retreat participants are responsible for organising their travel, meals, and accommodation during retreats. All classes during retreats are offered without charge.
  • Are these spiritual retreats religious?
    Our teachings are non-religious and non-dogmatic. We welcome participants from all faiths and backgrounds. We emphasise direct experience and critical thinking. While participants may have spiritual experiences, our general focus is on supporting practitioners to move into inner freedom and happiness. We come from the perspective that the innate nature of each person is consciousness. While this perspective is shared in Yoga and Advaita Vedanta (non-duality), we are not affiliated with a specific religion. For more information on our perspective, feel free to check our teachings page.
  • How can I sign up?
    We only offer a select number of mental wellness retreats per year, each with a limited capacity of participants. Retreats are announced on the website in the Events section, on the Instagram page, and in the Whatsapp Announcements Chat. If you’re interested in attending a specific retreat, please email us!
  • Are there any prerequisites?
    Please note these intensive retreats offer deep transformation and are typically only available to those who are familiar with the Open Awareness and emotional release techniques. You can sign up for an introduction class here. To maximise the benefits of a Kriya Lightning retreat, we recommend joining at least 2 online Awakening Workshops (schedule here) prior to attending an in-person retreat. If you are planning on attending one of our retreats, please ensure that you are physically fit and capable of participating safely. If you have a physical injury or illness, please check with your healthcare provider to ensure that it is safe for you to participate. Also, please make sure your insurance is up to date and disclose any relevant medical information with us before registering for a retreat.
  • What other programs does the Kriya Lightning Foundation offer?
    Apart from free meditation retreats, we also offer online meditation classes, mental wellness workshops, and corporate wellness programs tailored for companies based in Hong Kong.
