And Bourbon Street is the headquarters. You must experience it for yourself. That's why this year's summer retreat will be smack-dab on Bourbon Street." - Swami Premodaya I-CODA invites you to five days in the one-of-a-kind New Orleans. With all its vibrance and warmth, this is the perfect setting to dive into your full potential. Take this opportunity to truly retreat and explore the rich possibilities of sharper awareness, expanded consciousness, and more compassion in your life. The daily life by-products along the way are love ('open-hearted'), wisdom ('Truth-devoted'), and happiness ('God-centered'). Together, these reveal Freedom and Peace. RETREAT PROGRAM I-CODA's residential retreats have proven to be powerful vehicles for accelerated personal growth, realization and permanent transformation. This human life is a profound cosmic adventure. Premodaya's work makes the deeper levels of this journey more directly tangible and experience-able for participants ( ). Premodaya's Master, Gangaji, has said: "The deeper investigation demanded by a spiritual life, revealed the limits of my idea of freedom. I came to recognize that the desire ‘to do whatever I want to do' is an infantile, or at best, an adolescent view of freedom. To be free to do what I want to do, is not reliable freedom at all. What one simply wants to do, is dictated by impulses, instincts, desires, and other people's opinions. It's dictated by memories and by thoughts about what may come next. This is the opposite of freedom!" And Premodaya explains: "True happiness is spiritual happiness. It's the contentedness that arises when you're not being ruled by ‘impulses, instincts, desires and opinions' (worldliness)-not captive to ‘memories and thoughts' (personality). When instead, you're identified with the Divine itself. Truth becomes actually available, only when you're no longer a slave to yourself. Truth, Freedom, inner Peace, God-centeredness-these are potentials. They result from going beyond your limited personal psychology-from moving toward the Universal, the Timeless, the Infinite and Eternal. Ultimately this is achieved through surrender (as reached through love, devotion or trust [‘bhakti'] or through higher knowing [‘wisdom' or ‘jnani']), which simply amounts to overcoming restrictive individual will. Overcome your willfulness, and you'll become truly happy, truly free, truly a willing participant in life-a grateful participant in the higher life, which is the Divinely-oriented life".
