Ram Dass’ Inner Academy

Cultivate the flame of loving awareness

Explore courses, retreats, practices, and insights from Ram Dass and the Love Serve Remember family of teachers.

What is Ram Dass’ Inner Academy?

The Inner Academy is a new virtual wisdom school from the Love Serve Remember Foundation. Founded by Ram Dass in 2009, LSRF was established to share the transformative yet simple teachings of Neem Karoli Baba, lovingly called “Maharaji” by devotees. Inner Academy is a bountiful container of courses, lectures, and practices to awaken the heart to compassion, service, and radical love in these ever-changing times.

Through the Inner Academy, members will be able to access our library of virtual courses, as well as in-person retreat videos from the LSRF archives.

Meet the Teachers

Connect to the current Ram Dass family of teachers, including Krishna Das, Sharon Salzberg, Robert Thurman, Jack Kornfield, Trudy Goodman, Dr. Robert Svoboda, Joseph Goldstein, Spring Washam, Mirabai Starr, Duncan Trussell and many more. This network of spiritual leaders and truth seekers share from decades of personal practice and heart-led experience in Bhakti Yoga, Zen Buddhism, Tantra, and other interconnected traditions. Subjects include loving kindness, mindfulness & meditation, conscious dying, service, and more.

“The quieter you become, the more you can hear. We're fascinated by the words, but where we meet is in the silence behind them.”
- Ram Dass

“My heart needed this beautiful respite from the world. Not that it was easy! Opening the heart and getting to the root of unease can be difficult, but these wise teachers so gently led the way. I am so grateful for their skill and leadership, loving guidance and living embodiment of heartfulness! My practice is deepened, and my heart is wide open!”

- Victoria M.

“I just have to tell you that this course is magnificent and I am so glad I signed up! I have loved Ram Dass since the 70’s and followed his teachings. Going through a lot of changes now as my husband is ill and I quit working. This course is well put together and has helped my husband and me! Thank you with all our hearts for bringing this gift to us!”

- Chris and Linzy

“I just wanted you to know how much I appreciate what you and all those who are involved are doing. Including Ram Dass, of course! This is enough information to last a lifetime for me, and may take that long and more! …. Even just one of the bonus links, not to mention the main parts of the course. Many thanks!”

- Marie M.

“The course was timely. It taught me another way to be still and find answers, not instant answers, but steady progress that will not diminish over time.”

- Tammy R.

Frequently Asked Questions

What if I can't afford the yearly subscription?

LSRF turns no one away for lack of funds. If you cannot afford the yearly subscription fee of $149 or the monthly fee of $18, we encourage you to apply for a scholarship for a reduced rate.

The course library currently has 12 full courses (with two new courses added every year) and eight Maui retreat video collections (with two present-year retreats and two archival retreats added every year). Both the courses and retreat recordings are hosted in our virtual classroom called Teachable.

If you don’t already have a Teachable account, you will create one during checkout so you can easily log in to access the dashboard whenever you’d like. Many of the courses have downloadable audio, video, and readable transcripts that you will also be able to access, and the retreat recordings contain paragraph and bulleted summaries to guide your exploration.

Content from the live course will be archived into the yearly course subscription bundle after they finish.

LIVE course access is not included in the subscription bundle.

All courses and retreats in Teachable are designed to be taken on your own schedule, at your own pace. Teachings in each course are divided into weekly chapters for easy navigation. While you can certainly jump around within the course content, each course contains teachings that build on the prior week’s content and are designed to be taken in order.

You are also welcome to freely navigate the retreat video content.

Yes! You can access the live 4-week, 6-week and 8-week courses that we host twice per year by purchasing them separately. After the live courses end, we will add the archival content to the ever-growing paid course library for you to access with your yearly subscription.

Each course produced by LSRF is meticulously sourced, written, assembled and moderated by several course creators over hundreds of hours. This offering allows us to continue the legacy of Ram Dass in many ways, including offering sliding scale courses twice a year, free monthly community gatherings, and so much more to anyone who wants to access them, regardless of financial ability. Thanks for paying it forward!
