Simirthi is a Sanskrit word that means – self-remembrance. It is a process of sitting in rest and remembering one's self. The discipline is an essential effort of an individual who consciously decides to participate in their personal growth. It is an invitation to remember who we really are.
In a simirthi session, a quorum is set for people to come together for themselves, by themselves. A facilitator takes the quorum through the process of sitting in rest and alertness. Simirthi Programmes available include:

Simirthi is one of the most effective tools for meditation that I have come across. It's simplicity in learning and applying is what makes it so effective. I can practise Simirthi anywhere, anytime, in any moment, and it leads me back to me. There are few techniques that can apply to everyone and still retain its effectiveness, Simirithi is one of those techniques. No matter if the student is "advanced" or a "beginner" Simirthi is a potent technique.

There is such a rest in Simirthi. I have never been exposed to such a simple method that has brought about such great change within me. The beauty is, is that nothing but myself is needed ... it is right here and right now, anywhere and anytime. Simply sitting, being aware of myself, is always available to me. Attending the Simirthi trainings and the regular Simirthi sittings, I have been learning and refining the skill to remember myself and to invite the practice of this simple discipline into my everyday life. It has been invaluable and I am forever grateful.

Simirthi has been a welcome blessing ... to sit and come back to me, without force, influence, pressures ... in deep rest and alertness. It has certainly awakened the significance of my own presence to me and my life. The more I invest in my awareness, more order and beauty descends in and around me. I am grateful to have come to this learning in this lifetime.

Thank you so much for hosting the Initiation and for giving us the opportunity to get rid of mental struggles - to live a life of joy and happiness! By changing my view on things, my world has changed, and I'm very thankful that I finally found a way to increase my quality of life without any external goods. Again, THANK YOU! Looking forward to continue.

The art of sitting with oneself. Just to sit and be, without escaping to anywhere or to anything. When all is put to rest, we get a chance to just be, and what great joy in just being. I learnt this in Simirthi. An art that everybody should learn.
I was simply curious when I attended the Initiation Program in Berlin. What I didn't expect was a life transforming experience in only five days. I gained clarity about decisions I wanted to make in life, became more aware of patterns of my own behaviour, and met many wonderful people. Most importantly, I saw the potential of how practising Simirthi can change my life in the long term. It is such a simple yet profound way of being. I'm thrilled to start this life-long amazing journey.
