Shakti Tantra & Meditation Retreat
with Basu 08/10/18 – 22/10/18
15 days of guided Tantric meditation from the Shakti tradition.
Why Tantra? It is a direct way to open your life to a deeper level without having to control and withdraw yourself from normal activities. The meditation blossom in a mystical way when the process aligns us with the most subtle energies of life. In comparison to practices like Hatha Yoga where we are opening the energies of the body, in this retreat the focus is to open the energies of the mind and thereby bringing us further. The retreat is a traditional tantric meditation retreat – Tantric Sadhana.
Over 9 days we will sit 3 times a day and perform Japa Yoga around a Yantra. Some days there will also be Japa Yoga combined with Yagnas (fire ceremonies). During the retreat you can still engage in daily activities.
We will also have occasionally Bhajans (devotional singing), Arti (devotional ceremony) and Hatha Yoga.
The secret behind the practice of Tantra is the subtle connection between awareness and energy.
In the Tantric Sadhana the subtle energy Kundalini Shakti (the energy of awakening) is gradually activated and is leading to an expansion and awakening of the individual consciousness, Tantra is also to worship to the goddess who gives life to all of us. So if you are devotional it can benefit the practice.
Is one of the most widely spread forms of yoga in India and Tibet. Most traditions of India are using some forms of Japa Yoga, which consists of repeating different mantras. This induces a specific state of meditation which will lead to purification and more awareness.
- Yantra is a tantric diagram that is used to increase the effect of the meditation. The Yantra will be built on the first day of the retreat and will be erased on the last.
- Yagna For the practice to enter deep inside, in parallel with the Yantra there will also be Yagnas. This meditation will be performed with food offerings as sacrifice to the fire. It is a widespread practice in India today and done since ancient times.
