International Centers of Divine Awakening
(ICODA) serves the personal growth and spiritual awakening of all seekers. We are dedicated to the ‘experiential' (meaning actual experience, rather than ideas or beliefs about experience). We recognize and aver that everything that exists is divine, that all beings are manifestations of ‘Love Incarnate,' and that ‘reality' (existence unfettered) is knowable (can be directly experienced) by anyone and everyone.
ICODA supports and promotes the growth of the individual's innate spirituality through providing individual guidance, through organizing and holding public events, satsang and spiritual retreats, and through disseminating information regarding personal growth and spiritual awakening.
The Spiritual Director of ICODA is Swami Gyanmitra Prem Prasad. The founder of ICODA is Bodhisattva Shree Swami Premodaya, who, after profound experiences of grace, personal healing, transcendent reality and spiritual awareness, shifted his life's work from psychology and psychiatry, to spirituality.
