Nisala Foundation

Nisala Meditation Center

Nisala , The Center for Energy & Consciousness Studies is part of the Nisala foundation trust, an organisation that disseminates practical knowledge of yoga and consciousness in its many aspects among people, both local and foreign. It is a yoga meditation retreat in Sri Lanka situated atop a hill overlooking the Knuckles mountains range in Ududumbara, surrounded by the Victoria-Rantambe forest reserve, paddy fields, and an ancient village. It is an idyllic location for a spiritual retreat.

Nisala is gaining a reputation for the quality of teaching, as well as its overall management, which is headed by its founder and teacher, Acharin G. Wijenayake, and helped by a dedicated team of practitioners and staff. 

The teaching of the Centre takes a secular standpoint in its approach to teaching. This is due to the understanding that systems of practices within enlightenment traditions can be understood in terms of their core concepts, and applied to gain results devoid of their cultural or dogmatic aspects, that can have a profound impact on most practitioners. Here this understanding is further informed by a broad outlook that admits and encompasses the transcendental, and trans-personal, asapects of such practices, within a largely secular frame of reference.

Nisala yoga meditation retreat in Sri Lanka specialises in residential yoga and meditation retreats that it hosts each month for the beginner, intermediate, and advanced students. The retreats are well regulated and attendees are given hour-by-hour guidance by Acharin. These retreats regularly guide students in to deep states of spiritual awareness.

The teacher at Nisala international meditation center, Acharin, also employs the webinar platform over the internet to teach, with weekly teachings that are popular among many seekers across the world.
