Tabără de meditație și Hridaya Yoga, 1-10 iulie 2022

Tabără de meditație și Hridaya Yoga, 1-10 iulie 2022

Vă invităm să fiți împreună cu noi la începutul verii pentru a consacra o săptămână revelării esenței ființei noastre, numită atman în sanscrită sau, în tradițiile contemplative – Inima Spirituală. În cadrul acestei retrageri vom expune viziunea și principiile fundamentale ale sistemului Hridaya Yoga – Yoga Inimii Spirituale – și vom oferi metodele practice (procedee posturale, tehnici respiratorii, de concentrare și de meditație) pentru a crea condițiile interioare favorabile explorării dimensiunii profunde a conștiinței Sinelui. Ultimele 3 zile (7-9 iulie) toți participanții vor respecta nobila tăcere – mauna, pentru interiorizare, meditații mai adânci, introspecție. Cei care au aspirația de a păstra mauna mai mult timp vor primi tot sprijinul nostru.

Mai mult decât învățarea teoretică sau perfecțiunea procedeelor, vom pune accent pe trezirea freamătului sacru al Inimii, pe deschiderea față de ceea ce este frumos, înălțător, sacru, aspecte pe care le vom regăsi totodată și în propria ființă. Acestea vor fi asimilate prin integrarea unor atitudini și modalități care să faciliteze centrarea în Inimă, liniștirea minții și trezirea Conștiinței Martor.

Ne vom bucura totodată de comuniunea sufletească într-un grup de oameni orientați spre auto-cunoaștere prin introspecție. Va fi timp pentru întrebări și răspunsuri, pentru contemplarea naturii, pentru a fi cu noi înșine. Vom merge împreună în excursii în locuri pure, pline de energie benefică.

Retragerea va cuprinde meditații, sesiuni de hatha yoga, îndrumări și recomandări pentru practica spirituală. Vor fi prelegeri (satsang) pentru prezentarea unor subiecte spirituale necesare revelării Sinelui, atman.

Retragerea va cuprinde, printre altele și:

– Metoda de introspecţie a lui Ramana Maharshi folosind întrebarea “Cine sunt Eu?”

–Descoperirea freamătului mistic (spanda)

-Înțelegerea importanței conştiinţei martor, a iubirii pure ca expresie a conştiinţei unităţii, a tăcerii ca substrat al existenţei.

– Metode de reîntoarcere în conștiința unității (resorbţia sentimentului “Eu” în sursa sa),

– Despre conţinutul şi calitatea minţii,

– Adâncirea în meditaţie, folosind două metode din tradiţia Mahamudra,

– Tehnici de liniştire a minţii folosind controlul respiraţiei,

– Cele patru etape fundamentale în procesul meditației pentru Revelarea Inimii Spirituale,

-Trăirea celor 8 etape (membre) din raja yoga lui Patanjali prin hridaya yoga,

-Tehnici specifice de pratiahara, pranayama, concentrare,

-Descoperirea grației ce poate fi simțită în pauza dintre două respirații,

-Integrarea vieții de zi cu zi în viața spirituală,

-Elemente importante din nada yoga și cheia eficienței în practica asanelor

-Bucuria conștienței momentului prezent pentru a intui eternitatea

Vineri 1 iulie ora 19.00 va fi deschiderea retragerii cu o conferință de introducere ce va cuprinde totodată principiile esențiale în Hridaya yoga și în practica meditației.

We respect the special conditions of actual pandemic situation. The yoga hall and all facilities are disinfected, the accommodation is with single or double rooms (for people who know each other and accept to stay together).

Attention! In the case of symptoms of flu/ sickness just before the retreat, in August, the registered participant will be asked to stay home (the access in our center will not be possible) and the deposit will be transferred for the online retreat.

The full description of the retreat can be read below.

The Hridaya Silent Meditation Retreat is a unique 10-day immersion experience which uses an artful integration of meditation and yoga techniques to access your real and essential nature, known as the Spiritual Heart, the Supreme Self, or atman.

During the retreat, you will explore the Spiritual Heart from a variety of perspectives, including esoteric Christianity, Sufism, and Kashmir Shaivism. In the advanced stages of practice, all paths of authentic spiritual traditions meet and merge into the same ineffable Reality.

During this program you will stay in complete silence and keep a solitary attitude while receiving a set of inspiring teachings and lectures  to provide you with the opportunity to reach the deep states of consciousness that enable the revelation of the Heart. The approach is a unique integration of Advaita Vedanta, Tantra Yoga, and Dzogchen.

You will learn a form of Self-Enquiry meditation inspired by the non-dual teachings of the great sage Ramana Maharshi.

Most importantly, this retreat will help you experience what it means to be centered in the Heart. This means to be aware of that peaceful and eternal core of your being, which cannot be perceived by the rational mind but is the source of all inspiration, love, and beauty.

No previous meditation or yoga experience is necessary as this retreat is designed for beginner and advanced meditators alike.

This retreat is guided in English, with Romanian translation if needed.

Tabăra-retragere de meditație în tăcere, august 2019

Centrul de Yoga si Meditatie Kamala va organiza in perioada

9-20 august 2019

 TABARA-RETRAGERE DE MEDITATIE PENTRU REVELAREA INIMII SPIRITUALE

Tabăra-retragere Hridaya de meditaţie în tăcere este o experienţă unică de interiorizare care urmăreşte accesul la adevărata şi esenţiala noastră natură (Sinele suprem, numit atman în limba sanscrită), prin intermediul tehnicilor de meditaţie şi yoga. În timpul retragerii, vor fi prezentate aspecte ale Inimii Spirituale din diferite tradiţii cum ar fi advaita vedanta, creştinism ezoteric, sufism, şaivism kaşmirian, tantra, dzogchen. 

Tabăra-retragere Hridaya de meditaţie în tăcerea fost concepută în mod specific pentru înţelegerea cuprinzătoare şi intimă a ceea ce este meditaţia şi pentru a simţi transformările deosebite pe care ea le aduce. Programul îşi propune să creeze o experienţă asemănătoare unei retrageri în solitudine (cum ar fi într-o peşteră), în scopul de a oferi o oportunitate de a ajunge la stări profunde de conştiinţă, aspiraţie intensă către Divin şi interiorizare extrem de concentrată pentru trezirea şi înflorirea sufletului

În stadiile avansate de practică, toate căile spirituale autentice se întâlnesc armonios şi se contopesc în aceeaşi Realitate. În timpul Retragerii Hridaya în tăcere, practicanţii vor fi îndrumaţi treptat spre această înţelegere pătrunzătoare. Nu este necesară experienţa anterioară în practica yoga sau a meditaţiei, căci această retragere este concepută atât pentru începători, cât şi pentru practicanţii avansaţi ai meditaţiei.

In cadrul acestei tabere vor fi meditatii, recomandari, metode si elemente practice, meditatii cu directa indrumare, conferinte cu diferite teme, printre care:

– Metoda de introspectie a lui Ramana Maharshi folosind intrebarea “Cine sunt Eu?”;

–  Freamatul mistic (spanda), constiinta martor, rugaciunea inimii, resorbtia sentimentului “Eu” in sursa sa, despre continutul si calitatea mintii, starea naturala in traditia dzongchen, iubirea pura ca expresie a constiintei unitatii, tacerea ca substrat al existentei.

– Adancirea in meditatie, folosind doua metode din traditia Mahamudra: “prinderea mintii agitate” si “stabilizarea mintii in starea de liniste”;

– Cele patru etape fundamentale in procesul Revelarii Inimii Spirituale;

– Sfaturi cu privire la pastrarea continuitatii constientei asupra Inimii spirituale in traditia Parintilor Desertului (din Crestinism).

– O metoda vedantica de a practica si a intelege mai profund rolul pe care il are Hatha yoga in transformarea spirituala. (Programul va include de asemenea sedinte de Hatha Yoga);

– Tehnici de linistire a mintii folosind controlul respiratiei;

– Principiile fundamentale de transformare spirituala in Advaita Vedanta.

– Metode de a translata de la constiinta individuala la Constiinta Unitatii Divine.

Participarea la această tabără de meditatie implica respectarea urmatoarelor reguli: 

 -Pentru a se crea o stare cât mai profundă de interiorizare, linişte mentală şi aspiraţie către Dumnezeu, în această tabără, începând din a doua zi, se va realiza în permanenţă mauna (respectarea tacerii).

– De asemenea, nu se vor folosi telefoane, calculatoare, casetofoane, radiouri sau orice alte surse de distragere mentală.

– Femeile si barbatii se vor caza separat, se va respecta abstinenta. De asemenea, vor manca in serii separate.

– Mancarea va fi strict lacto-ovo-vegetariana.

– Nu se consuma alcool, carne, cafea si nu se fumeaza.

Nu sunt admisi cei care sufera de boli psihice grave(cum ar fi epilepsia, schizofrenia, paranoia).
