From 03/07/2019 - 08/07/2019in Pilio
We have the pleasure to invite you to the 4th spiritual retreat out of a novel series which offers exceptional spiritual revelations and practical guidance leading to an immediate state of Enlightenment based on Vijnana Bhairava Tantra ancient treatise.
Vijnana Bhairava Tantra is not a philosophical text but a universal manual of practical wisdom consisting of 112 methods providing an astonishingly vast spectrum of modalities to access the direct experience of Divine Transcendence and to achieve an immediate spiritual realization. This ancient treatise reveals the esoteric art through which each and every life-situation may become a particular form of yoga transforming it into a formidable occasion to discover who we really are and thus to reunite ecstatically with our Essential Divine Nature (the Supreme Divine Self, Atman).
The retreat will include:
- commentaries on the traditional sanscrit tantric text translated by the lecturer himself
- insights to its spiritual keys
- experimenting the universally efficient techniques encoded in the text with a step by step guidance
- group, individual and couple exercises
- useful tools which will help us transform some of our daily experiences into powerful generators of transformation
- hatha yoga practice
- special, secret tantric initiations and more.
The participation to the 4th module is not conditioned in any way by the attendance at the previous ones.
130€ (for subscriptions until 1st June) / 180€ (for subscriptions from 1st of June onwards)

Nicolae Catrina (Adinathananda) is a yoga teacher with more than 30 years of experience. Two decades ago he founded the only Kashmir Shaivism course in Europe that offers to the thousands of students from Romania and abroad the riches and profoundness of this spiritual tradition in a unique way that is adapted to western mentality.
His deep interest for various forms of authentic spirituality and his spiritual intuition have helped him elaborate over time a series of initiatic courses, such as Tantric Alchemy, Enneagram or esoteric I-Ching. He also created a unique system for the revelation of the Essential Self, Atman, based on a supramental approach – but also a very accessible one – for the revelation of the Self (based on the enlightening esthetic experience) that has already helped thousands of aspirants take important steps towards discovering their essential divine nature.
He is the author of many books on Shaivism, Yoga, Tantra, Alchemy, initiatic art etc. He has translated many important yogic and tantric texts, such as Sundaryalahari, Shiva Samhita or Gheranda Samhita. He exclusively offers in his Shaivism courses numerous traditional, esoteric works, such as Shiva Sutra, Spanda KArika, Vijnana Bhairava Tantra etc., as well as their practical, deeply transforming knowledge in a new, innovative way.
