Regretfully, this year’s San Francisco programs have been cancelled due to growing concerns with the international Coronavirus/COVID-19. We are genuinely disappointed not to be able to host Amma in San Francisco, CA on her 2020 Tour.

We are refunding retreat fees for the full amount. Please allow up to 7 business days for the credit to appear on your account.

We appreciate your understanding and look forward to seeing you for Amma's 2021 tour.

We are very pleased to announce that Amma Sri Karunamayi will be holding her Spiritual programs again this year in the San Francisco, CA area from March 12–22, 2020. (Location information for each program is provided below).


Amma Sri Karunamayi - Individual Blessings

On Thursday, March 12 Amma will be giving Individual Blessings, Saraswati Dikshas, and Divine Discourse from 11 AM to 6 PM at Cyprian's Center – 2097 Turk Blvd, San Francisco, CA 94115.

On Friday, March 13 Amma will be giving Individual Blessings, Saraswati Dikshas, and Divine Discourse from 11 AM to 6 PM at Unity Palo Alto – 3391 Middlefield Rd, Palo Alto, CA 94306.

Individual Blessing programs are free and open to everyone. This is a very special opportunity for you to speak one-on-one with Amma and convey any specific questions, concerns, or blessing requests to her.

(Please note: that each person may only receive one individual blessing per yearly tour. First time attendees who have never received an individual blessing from Amma before will be given priority in the group).

Individual Blessings are a chance for families to come before Amma to receive her gift of profound love and spiritual energy. Amma considers all of creation as her own family and all beings as her very own children. This divine motherly love inspires Amma to tune in directly to the specific requests her children bring to her.

For many people the Individual Blessing is an encounter with the Divine in the form of a human being – a saint, a teacher, a spirutal guide, a loving mother. Great peace and inner silence comes easily in the presence of our beloved Amma.

Timeless moments with Amma are extremely rare. Individuals who receive a blessing with Amma have the opportunity to write down any of their concerns on an index card which Amma will read in their presence. Some people seek her words of wisdom. Some come to her to receive her spiritual touch which awakens the chakras and the higher mind and opens the heart to the path of unconditional love. Amma often blesses people's personal belongings, charging them with spiritual energy. Please bring your children and infants as they are most welcome.

Amma offers a special blessing, Sarawati Diksha, for students ages four to 24 in which she gives them a special mantra that enhances their memory skills and helps them with their studies. If you are interested, please register for this event when you check in on Blessing Day. While Blessing Day is free to all, Saraswati Diksha follows the ancient Vedic tradition where students offer their teacher a donation. Generally, the event occurs around 1:00 pm.

In India, ten of thousands of people show up for Amma's blessings. Don't miss this special, intimate opportunity to spend time in Amma's company.

Due to the large number of people attending this program, individuals arriving after 2:30 pm are not guaranteed an Individual Blessing with Amma.

1 DAY SILENT MEDITATION RETREAT – (Half Day options are available)

We cordially invite you to join Amma for a One Day Silent Meditation Retreat in San Francisco, CA on Saturday, March 14 from 8 AM to 6 PM at the Unity Palo Alto – 3391 Middlefield Rd, Palo Alto, CA 94306. All meditators, from beginners to those with an established practice will benefit from the special retreat atmosphere. Participants will be spiritually nourished by Amma's serene presence, silent meditations, discourses, and spiritual chanting. The retreats will provide an invaluable opportunity for devotees to deepen their meditation practice and to listen to the inspirational wisdom of Amma's divine discourses. Please note: a half day retreat in either the morning or afternoon is available.

Please register early since these retreats tend to fill up fast. A light vegetarian lunch and snacks will be provided as part of the registration fee.

Refund Policy: Refunds can be given through March 6 (with a $15 cancellation fee). After this date no refunds can be issued.

HOMA (SACRED FIRE CEREMONY) - (Free Public Program)

Join Amma to participate in a Homa (Sacred Fire Ceremony) on Sunday, March 15, from 9 AM – 1 PM at the Sanatana Dharma Kendra – 3102 Landess Ave, San Jose, CA 95132. Homa is the most ancient and sacred ceremony in the Vedic tradition of Sanatana Dharma. It is a fire in which forms of the Divine are invoked through the power of mantra and profound spiritual intention. Special offerings are cast into the fire while Sanskrit mantras are chanted, and the combined energy of the fire, offerings, and mantras generates powerful spiritual vibrations that bless and purify everyone present—spreading peace and healing through the world. The smoke that rises from a Homa contains a powerful healing energy. As it rises to the heavens, the atmosphere, both physically and subtly, encourages a peaceful environment and gentle weather. We look forward to seeing you there. Register now to attend!

Homa sponsorships are will be available and posted online shortly.
