Kamala Yoga and Meditation Centre organizes:

10-day Hridaya Retreat – A Silent Meditation Retreat for the Revelation of the Spiritual Heart, with Sahajananda

27 December 2020 – 7 January 2021, Sanpetru (near Brasov), Romania

The Hridaya Silent Meditation Retreat is a unique immersion experience which focuses on accessing our real and essential nature, the supreme and divine Self, atman, through an artful integration of meditation and yoga techniques. During the retreat, we address broad aspects of the Spiritual Heart, from a variety of traditions including esoteric Christian, Sufi, and Kashmir Shaivism. The atmosphere will be one of agape and strong spiritual support.

The Hridaya Silent Meditation Retreat was created specifically to comprehensively and intimately understand what meditation is and to feel the amazing inner transformations which it brings.

The program aims to create an experience resembling a solitary retreat (such as in a cave) in order to provide an opportunity to reach deep states of consciousness, intense aspiration for the Divine, and highly focused interiorization for the awakening and blossoming of the soul, jivatman. This method is a unique integration of Advaita Vedanta, Sufism, Tantra, and Dzogchen.

In the advanced stages of practice, all paths of authentic spiritual traditions meet harmoniously and merge into the same ineffable Reality. During the Hridaya Silent Meditation Retreat, practitioners will be skillfully guided to this penetrating understanding where the search for meaning ends in surrender to the domain of revelation. No previous meditation or yoga experience is necessary as this retreat is designed for beginner and advanced meditators alike.

We recommend you to read the guidelines and the specific rules of the Silent Hridaya Retreat here and  here

All meditations and techniques are specifically intended to activate the Spiritual Heart and to awaken the consciousness at this level. We will integrate advice for guided meditation, lectures and practical techniques and methodologies in our retreat sessions, including:

– Ramana Maharshi’s atma vichara method of introspection (Who Am I?)

– Techniques to still the mind using breath control

– Study of the symbolism of the Spiritual Heart

May the Sacred Tremor of the Heart enlighten our lives!

Living in the Beauty of the Heart – Initiation in Tripura Sundari, the Great Wisdom of Pure Intention, Beauty, and Essential Love

Enter the sacred realm of Tantra Yoga, which includes spiritual mysteries, Eastern philosophy, traditional practices, insights, and, most of all, Love.

This workshop offers an authentic initiation in one of the key elements of the fundamental Shakti triangle—Pure Intention (Tripura Sundari), Pure Knowledge (Bhuvaneshvari), and Pure Action (Tripura Bhairavi).

Tantra Yoga is a celebration of our eternity in the diverse temporal domain. It is a way of honoring the infinite in the finite, a revelation of the sacredness of life.

Tantra is the magnificent path of intense energy, which brings us closer to the Spiritual Heart. It cultivates and honors our sacred creative power through mantras, pranayama, asanas, mudras, concentration techniques, rituals, and meditation. At the same time, Tantra includes devotional wonderment and exaltation towards the Divine Mother, Shakti, and the Divine Absolute, Shiva.

The Supreme Truth is Unique. Consciousness is one and the same everywhere. But, in Tantra it is perceived and expressed in ten fundamental ways. These are the Dasha Maha Vidyas, the Ten Great Wisdoms. Each of them is a fascinating and gracious guide to the sacredness and peace of the Self.

These Ten Great Wisdoms represent ideal aspects that are awakened, to a certain extent, in everyone. In Tantra, spiritual realization is accompanied by a complete revelation of all ten.

The Dasha Maha Vidyas exist in us and we exist through them.

This workshop helps us become more aware of this truth.

Do you feel a longing for transformation, light, love, and wisdom?

Tripura Sundari is here, waiting for you…

This workshop includes:

  • An initiation in the mantra of Tripura Sundari

  • Nada Yoga Meditation—Connecting and empowering ourselves with the subtle sound of Tripura Sundari

  • Hridaya Meditation—Reconnecting with the Spiritual Heart

  • An exploration of the secret power of yantra

  • Tantric Cosmogony

  • The Philosophy of Beauty

  • Practical techniques from the Vijnana Bhairava Tantra

  • The ABCs of tantric ritual science

  • Japa (mantra repetition) using a mala (rosary)

  • Hridaya Hatha Yoga sessions

These practices ultimately lead to the stillness of the Heart. This workshop will help us open to the beauty of the Heart and reconsider life from this perspective.

I asked the earth, I asked the sea and the deeps, among the living animals, the things that creep. I asked the winds that blow, I asked the heavens, the sun, the moon, the stars, and to all things that stand at the doors of my flesh . . . My question was the gaze I turned to them. Their answer was their beauty.”

Saint Augustine

Dates: 10-11th March 2018

The workshop is done by yoga and meditation teacher Simona Trandafir.

Location: kamala Yoga and Meditation center, Sanpetru, Brasov, Romania

10-day Hridaya Retreat with Sahajananda, August 2018

Kamala Yoga and Meditation Centre organizes:

10-day Hridaya Retreat – A Silent Meditation Retreat for the Revelation of the Spiritual Heart, with Sahajananda

10-21th August 2018, Sanpetru (near Brasov), Romania

The Hridaya Silent Meditation Retreat is a unique immersion experience which focuses on accessing our real and essential nature, the supreme and divine Self, atman, through an artful integration of meditation and yoga techniques. During the retreat, we address broad aspects of the Spiritual Heart, from a variety of traditions including esoteric Christian, Sufi, and Kashmir Shaivism. The atmosphere will be one of agape and strong spiritual support.

The Hridaya Silent Meditation Retreat was created specifically to comprehensively and intimately understand what meditation is and to feel the amazing inner transformations which it brings.

The program aims to create an experience resembling a solitary retreat (such as in a cave) in order to provide an opportunity to reach deep states of consciousness, intense aspiration for the Divine, and highly focused interiorization for the awakening and blossoming of the soul, jivatman. This method is a unique integration of Advaita Vedanta, Sufism, Tantra, and Dzogchen.

In the advanced stages of practice, all paths of authentic spiritual traditions meet harmoniously and merge into the same ineffable Reality. During the Hridaya Silent Meditation Retreat, practitioners will be skillfully guided to this penetrating understanding where the search for meaning ends in surrender to the domain of revelation. No previous meditation or yoga experience is necessary as this retreat is designed for beginner and advanced meditators alike.

We recommend you to read the guidelines and the specific rules of the Silent Hridaya Retreat here and  here

All meditations and techniques are specifically intended to activate the Spiritual Heart and to awaken the consciousness at this level. We will integrate advice for guided meditation, lectures and practical techniques and methodologies in our retreat sessions, including:

– Ramana Maharshi’s atma vichara method of introspection (Who Am I?)

– Techniques to still the mind using breath control

– Study of the symbolism of the Spiritual Heart

– Methods of passing from individual consciousness to Cosmic Consciousness

– Methods of Self-centering in daily life

– A proper understanding of Advaita Vedanta’s fundamental tenets

– Hatha Yoga sessions in a special spiritual style

– Other Yogic methods that approach the issue of the Spiritual Heart

– Sacred poetry

– The four fundamental stages in the process of the revelation of the Spiritual Heart

– Advice for maintaining awareness in the Spiritual Heart in the tradition of the Fathers of the Desert (from Christianity)

– Daily special meditations on themes connected with Self-revelation

– The Christian method of the Prayer of the Heart.
