From 18/04/2019 - 22/04/2019 in Maha Yoga Zentrum Berlin, Germany
caitanyam ātmā (the absolute godly consciousness is the self-essence) – Śiva sūtra, 1.1.
Unanimously considered by scholars to be the most elevated, refined, purest form of Tantra, the tradition of Kashmir Shaivism offers both a particularly complex metaphysics and some of the most direct, fast, complete and extraordinary methods of spiritual accomplishment. The theoretical and practical framework of this spiritual retreat – an entirely unique framework by its mostly supramental and extraordinarliy efficient approach of the Kashmir Shaivism tradition – will give all participants the possibility of stepping into a higher level of consciousness, as well as accessing authentic states of spiritual enlightenment.
In this spiritual retreat there will be numerous (and unprecedented) exemplifications, impulses and important spiritual initiations from the Kashmir Shaivism tradition, such as:
- A fundamental esoteric method of achieving a full state of occult resonance with the „formidable power of the yoni“ – essential universal power that is in reality the complementary aspect of Shiva-lingam’s formidable power
- The initiation into the secret mantra of Kama Shakti
- Initiation in some fundamental hypostases of Shiva, as well as in certain secret spiritual practises that integrate their sublime specific energy
- Essential revelations about the liberating Grace of Shiva (Shaktipata)
- Esoteric methods of fast spiritual awakening
- Also, the traditional spiritual ceremony for activating the formidable power of Shiva-lingam (the essential godly creative power) will be repeated!
- The esoteric revelations about the formidable power of the lingam and the formidable, complementary power of the yoni, are the foundation of the tantric tradition and the energy base of some of the most important and most effective spiritual initiations.
This Camp is available for everyone. If you haven´t been either to the retreat in Herculane 2018 nor the one in Berlin 2018 you need to recuperate the theory corresponding to the Spiritual Ceremony which will take place again during the retreat (fee: 30,- €). Please arrive if possible one day before because the lecture starts approx. at 10 am.
