A Paradisiacal Silent Retreat Crossing the Bridge Towards the New Year 2013

Experiencing the Inner Blissful Peace of the Spiritual Heart

Here we are, at the gate of 2013… after going through the fatidic year of 2012 with all its mysteries. And the speed of transformation just got bigger.

As already a tradition, together with an enthusiastic team of Natha, we are hosting in Paradise Retreat Center (our new holiday resort) the ‘Silent Retreat for Revealing the Supreme Self’ ATMAN. The first part of this celebration has ended with the New Year festivities – that included 2 nights of invocations of all the divine aspects.

silentretreat-6Using this special moment of border between eras – the end of 2012 and beginning of 2013 – almost 100 yogis have decided to follow the inner call for deepening the paths of the Spiritual Heart, aspiring to awaken their souls and prepare for the blissful moment of revealing the spark of Divine Immortality present in each and every one of us – ATMAN (the Supreme Self).silentretreat-5

For this we have designed a special program of guided practice meant to help everybody to realign the deepest levels of their beings in order to experience the inner blissful peace of the Spiritual Heart.silentretreat-4

During the first five days of the retreat – the aspirants were supported on many levels to dive into the mysterious sacred space of their inner beings – with the help of asanas, pranayama, relaxation and many guided techniques of meditation aiming to quiet the mind and to exercise dharana (the mind focus) and dhyana (deep yogic meditation).

There were also inspiring lectures from our beloved spiritual Master Grieg, our dear friends – Nicusor Catrina and Dani Bozaru, and several needed exerts from the meditation course that I am teaching in the regular classes in Natha – altogether marking the path of meditation towards Transcendence.silentretreat-2

In the serene retreat atmosphere of the surroundings of Paradis, enhanced by the profound practice of deliberate silence (mauna), each of us have celebrated the present moment – the source of bliss – and entered into deep states of meditation that have brought spiritual happiness and fulfillment.

New Year’s Eve was the crowning moment of this first module of the Silent Retreat. The program (spiritually supported by Grieg) included 2 nights of more than 12 hours of invocations and meditations with different divine aspects of the Absolute Reality such as – communion with God the Father, Jesus, the Holy Spirit and the Virgin Mary, different angelic choirs, all the ten Great Cosmic Powers of the Maha Vidya tradition, the divine facets of the Oriental Trinity (Brahma, Vishnu, Shiva) and more. In this way we celebrated our entering into the New Year, filled with indescribable occult resonances of aspiration and even profound revelations.silentretreat-3

And, from the 1st of January the second module of the retreat began to unfold its potentialities, taking everyone deeper into the practice of meditation toward the revelation of the Supreme Immortal Self ATMAN by stabilizing the awakening of the Spiritual Heart and the centering into the present moment…

All is integrated into the seven steps method that is now systematically implemented in our school and extensively explained within the meditation course.

    For me as well, it was a special time of the year that represented the complete breakthrough that i needed in my life. I feel completely renewed and in peace.

    Thank you for your complete and in-depth analysis and presentation on how to meditate and on the structure of the mind. It helped us all and allowed many to penetrate the ego structure and savor deep states of ecstasy, simplicity and bliss. It was a wonderful retreat.

    The first day, it felt it will be never possible for me to meditate. My mind was so much in its repetitive and delayed mood that it would have seemed impossible to ever stop it. And still, with the support and the great explanations you have offered us, i have found myself soon in long blissful meditations. It really changes the perspective of life such experiences. Thank you and i look forward to continue on this line, although it is a thin one and needs a lot of practice.

    It is so good to see that prayers and constant and sincere longing for God are sooner or later responded. The way Grace works is beyond understanding. Still, i understood how one needs to do his homework first. It was a camp full of revelations and grace. I am deeply and more and more grateful for all that is.

  7. Jean says:

    It is going to be (it is already) a divine year, 2013. It was very easily perceived this fact during the intense appeal invocations that we did together at the crossing of years, also in my country. The Good and the Light is spreading big-time.

  10. Harumi says:

    Happy Birthday, dear Advaita! I wish you a paradisaical year, to have all your beautiful dreams and aspirations accomplished and, why not, to be able to soon witness a worldwide turn from a life in competition to a world of cooperation. We love you!

  11. Ed says:

    The best thing I have from this retreat is .. the Yama and Nyiama as a life conduct.. I never truly understood them and their necessity and how they reflect upon the life of the spirit until now. It did a big difference. Brilliant explanations and support from you and your team! Keep it up and hope to meet you in the same place again for the next new year’s retreat..

  12. Satya says:

    Thanks to what I have learnt during this retreat, I can ”deal” better with life’s waves. It still amazes me, how life can offer you in the same time unexpected sufferance and non-understanding on one side, but then from other sides, simultaneously, lots and lots and lots.. of love, warmth, pleasure, connections and surprising breath-taking beauty..
    Perhaps this is the path to non-duality, to be able to walk the middle path.. and i know i am a completely beginner.
    Thank you again for all the insight, understanding, revelation, support and grace we were given.
    God bless you!

  13. Marie says:

    Life is so beauty-full! I am more and more happy, peaceful, fulfilled and I feel a deep gratitude for my life and for all the wonderful connections I have made in my life.. and for the huge amount of good that I experience right now. It is letting me in awe all this game, exactly as it is..

  14. Helen says:

    What a graceful guidance.. being interiorized, peaceful and truthful you attracts the heaven.. or heaven pulls you in like a magnet..

  15. Hay J. says:

    Once again, (every day once again ;).. ) i realize the importance that this retreat has had in my life. The illusory limits of the individuality, that what makes us suffer, fade away more and more and give room to more and more depth immersing, light, peace, overwhelming joy, beauty, gratefulness, recognition, intensity and happiness.. and peace again.
    Revelations appear but the more this process occurs, the more i realize how i do not know nothing and remain only in pure awe..
    The witness state is present much more lately – i do not know how it happened to be so but i am glad it is.

  16. Lakshmi says:

    Missing Paradise.. you must have a wonderful spring there now.. such a sweet place for the soul and nurturing..

  17. Julie says:

    Patience – is to know the grass doesn’t grow quicker if you pull it..

  18. Harumi says:

    Thank you again for this retreat and the way you structured the needed steps for anyone in order to really meditate and touch reality in a way that is more true and more deep than one can attain through any other method. I am truly grateful for what I witnessed and for getting in touch with me in a way I will never forget.

  19. Ramana says:

    ”When you really feel that equal love for all, when your heart has so expanded as to embrace the whole of creation, you will
    certainly not feel like giving up this or that; you will simply drop off from secular life as a ripe fruit does from the branch
    of a tree. You will feel that the whole world is your home.” – Ramana Maharshi
