Navaratri Retreat – Receive the grace of the goddess

Program 11 days of guided Tantric meditation from the Shakta tradition, Supported by Bhajans, Hatha Yoga and Healthy food.
Why Tantra Because It is a direct way to open your life to a deeper level without having to control and withdraw yourself from normal activities.
The meditation blossom in a mystical way when the process aligns us with the most subtle energies of life.
In comparison to practices like Hatha Yoga where we are opening the energies of the body in this retreat the focus is to open the energies of the mind and thereby bringing us further.
The retreat is a traditional tantric meditation retreat – Tantric Sadhana. Every day we will sit 3 times a day and preform Japa Yoga around a Yantra. Some days there will also be Japa Yoga combined with Yagnas (fire ceremonies). In the retreat you can still engage in daily activities.
Supporting Practices: If you wish you can participate in Bhajans (devotional singing), Arti (devotional ceremony), Serva (selfless service) and Hatha Yoga
Yorgos has been introduced to Tantra and Hatha Yoga when he was nineteen years old and started his yogic sadhana with enthusiasm and deep interest in spirituality. Three years later on 2008 he met Swami Shankarananda Giri who initiated him into Kriya Yoga and started serving his guru by organizing Kriya retreats. On 2011 he did his first Vipassana retreat and he did more the following years. On 2014 he connected to Guruji Raj Kumar and started traditional tantric sadhanas. He is introducing people in Kriya and traditional Tantra since 2016 with the permission and blessings of his teachers.
Maria started with Yoga in 2004 as a way to find some calm and to work withher body. When she met Basu in 2011 in Greece she was marveled by how much more Yoga was than what she had experienced so far. As a result she started a more regular asana practice, meditation and did a 2 years yoga teacher training with Yoga Vidya. In 2013 she got initiated into Kriya Yoga by Swami Shankarananda. She got impressed by Vipassana and Zen meditation and started Tantra Yoga sadhana under Guruji Rajkumars guidance in 2017.
