Ma Festival – meditation retreat
With Basu and Chandani in the greek village Paleros
From 25th September to 3th of October 2014
The retreat is a traditional tantric meditation retreat – Tantric
Sadhana. Over 9 days we will sit 2 or 3 times a day and
preform Japa Yoga around a Yantra. In the retreat you can still
engage in daily activities.
Four times a year at the solstice or equinox it is especially
efficient to preform this kind of meditation. The Ma festival is
called Navarati in Sanskrit , meaning “9 nights”.
So this retreat is the 9 nights before equinox.
Additional Practice: We will also have Japa Yoga combined
with Yagnas (fire ceremonies) occasionally Bhajans (devotional
singing) and Hatha Yoga.
Tantric Sadhana functions by purifying and balancing the energies. Shakti
means energy in Sanskrit therefore it is Shakti Yoga.
Japa Yoga is one of the most widely spread forms of yoga in India and Tibet.
Most traditions of India are using some forms of Japa Yoga, which consists of
repeating different mantras. This induces specific state of meditation which will
lead to purification and more awareness.
Yantra is a tantric diagram that is used to increase the effect of the meditation.
The yantra will be built on the first day of the retreat and will be erased on the
