Leela Depth Immersion

is a 1-year program for those who feel called to dive into the depths of their own self-discovery and awaken to their true radiant nature, beyond conditioned beliefs and personal identification. It is our mission to enhance the quality of life in the world by transmitting the possibility of self-realization to all beings who are willing and ready to hear this call.

The Leela Depth Immersion uniquely combines both therapeutic approaches (for healing and ego strengthening) and satsang for self-inquiry and ego transcendence. 

Eli, Lisa and Jared

In this powerful and intimate container, you will receive...

  • The transmission of Silence, which was passed down this lineage from Ramana Maharshi, through Papaji to Eli.
  • The support for deep self-inquiry, using the wisdom-mirror of the Enneagram of Liberation - a revolutionary new model of ego and transcendence
  • The Leela School’s therapeutic mastery skills for heart based interventions to end egoic suffering

The program is heart-based and entirely experiential. It is founded on the principle of being a True Friend, which simply but powerfully means meeting yourself and the world with a silent mind and an open heart. A True Friend is a wisdom mirror - it adds nothing, it removes nothing, it takes nothing personally. 

First and foremost, being a True Friend to yourself, you will discover the difference between the stillness of the heart and the habitual and conditioned movements of the mind. Then, you have a choice - to stay true to your heart and let it live your life in harmony and fulfillment or to follow the insatiable and, up to now largely unconscious, desires and aversions of the mind.

  • Hear the call to discover your True Nature deeper than your ego
  • Are willing to look through your egoic patterns and beliefs, to expose all the ways in which you betray yourself
  • Are ready to end your personal suffering and be free.
