Program

The main practice in this retreat is mantra repetition (japa). The meditation will take place three times a day around a living Yantra.

Yantra is a Tantric diagram that is used to increase the effect of the meditation. It is literally the form of the Godess. We will create a live Yantra made of barley seeds that during the process will sprout forming the Tantric diagram or Mandala. The Yantra will be built on the first day and on the last day will be dissolved into the ocean.

You will sit three times a day and perform mantra repetition around the Yantra. There will be also mantra repetition around the fire using the tool of the fire as the form of the Godess , this is called a Yagna. Everyone is free to choose how much they like to follow, the minimum is a 30-minute meditation per sitting.

Special note

Kindly note that the teaching is based on donation according to the tradition of Tantra. Suggested donation is between 100 EUR and 300 EUR. This amount will go to the instructors, to the necessary materials Ellas Retreat's use in this sadhana and to their tantric master Guruji Maharaj who gives this knowledge.

Tantric Sadhana

The secret behind the practice of Tantra is the subtle connection between awareness and energy. In Tantric practice, the subtle energy Kundalini Shakti, the energy of awakening is gradually activated leading to an expansion of the individual consciousness. Tantra is also a worship to the goddess who gives life to all. A devotional approach can benefit the practice.

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 a specific state of meditation which will lead to purification and more awareness.

Yagna

For the practice to enter deep inside, in parallel with the Yantra, there will also be Yagnas. This meditation will be performed with food offerings as the sacrifice to the fire. It is a widespread practice in India today and done since ancient times.

Kundalini yoga

If you wish you can participate in Kundalini yoga, it frees the body from tension and helps to balance the energies.

Seva

If you wish you can help with small tasks like cutting vegetables or cleaning the temple room.
