16-17-18 January - Upanishads
19-20 January - Tantric Meditation
This workshop is part of CY 300 Hour Master Path To Yoga
We invite you to dive into the secret wisdom of the ancient yoga texts. Explore the Upanishads, which are perhaps the oldest mystical and philosophical texts available to mankind, containing the teachings and wisdom of the ancient sages. These sublime texts unfold for us a profound view of who we are and of the deepest dimensions of the world we live in and the purpose of existence. For this reason, they were traditionally meant to be received not from a book, but directly from a teacher.
The workshop will combine a lively and insightful presentation of some of the most important teachings of the Upanishads, as well as the opportunity to directly experience some of the ancient meditative practices they contain.
The Ocean of Nectar:
An Immersion in the Vijnana-bhairava Tantra
“That state of the self is internal and filled with the bliss of one’s experience.
One who is established in any of these methods, what he experiences day after day is fulfilled, until he attains complete satisfaction”
Vijnana-bhairava 15, 148.
There is a treasure trove of meditation in the tradition of Kashmir Shaivism, and one of its greatest sources is the revealed text known as Vijnana-bhairava Tantra. In it, the Goddess plays the role of student and asks Shiva for instruction. The reply, however, does not come in the form of doctrines, but in the form of 112 methods of meditation. The message is clear: the ultimate answer to the deepest questions of life lies within.
In this two-day course, we will immerse ourselves in the nectarean ocean of meditative practices selected from this sublime text. As we progress through the various forms of meditation, the inner state becomes deeper and deeper, supported by our contemplation, analysis and discussions. If you’ve ever felt like immersing yourself in meditation but felt perhaps too busy for a prolonged retreat, this course is for you! It is designed particularly to deepen our understanding and experience of meditation, to shift our internal state and anchor it firmly in internal, blissful awareness. It will be a true banquet for the soul.
Open to all levels of experience in meditation.
