Hatha yoga- symbolism and self-exploration

Date:Jan 08-10 2021
Location:Allgaeu
Register:A210108-2
Title:Hatha yoga- symbolism and self-exploration
Instructor:Swami Sukhananda

This profound self-exploration seminar includes three important components developed by Swami Sivananda Radha, which are taught and guided in a clear and structured way by her direct disciple Swami Sukhananda.

Hidden Language of Hatha Yoga: far from being simply body work, the gentle and meditative practice of hatha yoga fully integrates the body as a spiritual tool. By practising with metaphors, symbols and visualization, you begin to understand the secret messages that are in the asanas. You start your observations on a very personal level: your mind, your body, your relationships with the world. And then you go on to the universal, the mythology of cultures, the all-sustaining power of life.

The asana practice is only incidentally aimed at physical effects. More importantly, it is about understanding the psychology and symbolism behind the poses, and how each asana can increase spiritual awareness. This practice will help you to get deeper into your body and to experience the hidden teaching that is in every asana.

You practice in a quiet and inward-looking atmosphere with guidance. Between asanas you have time to write down your observations. At the end of each yoga class, after the deep relaxation, there is still time and space for the participants to share their recent experiences.

Kundalini Yoga leads to liberation; it is an often misunderstood path which offers a practical and powerful tool for self-development. Swami Radha has developed a new access to this old system using Dream Yoga as a way to connect with your Supreme Self - analysing your dreams is the direct way to begin to understand yourself. You enter into dialogue with your subconscious mind. You get answers that help you to get more self-confidence.

These are the prices of 2020. There will be a change for 2021.

Theme Week: Reconciliation through mindfulness meditation

Date:May 23-28 2021
Location:Bad Meinberg
Register:B210523-21
Title:Theme Week: Reconciliation through mindfulness meditation
Instructor:Thay Phap Nhat, Tinh Hanh

Deep in our hearts, we all long for reconciliation, for becoming "one again" with ourselves and with all we love. Authentic reconciliation begins with looking attentively at our own actions in thought, word and deed to see how we make mistakes ourselves. However, we do not condemn ourselves for these mistakes, but directly acknowledge our own fallibility. She belongs to us. The next step is to apologize. We allow the energy of forgiveness to flow through our whole being. This energy makes it easier for us, cleans us from within, until we feel completely free. A feeling of gratitude and love comes up. In this theme week we practice this kind of reconciliation with ourselves, with our body, with Mother Earth and with other people.

In addition, you can participate in the open-class activities: daily yoga classes, meditation, guided walks, recitations, drawing of mandalas and much more. You can register for the entire week or only for a few days as an individual guest, booking your room only but having the option of attending talks and classes.

Instructor:Shekar Pandey

Sri Rama teaches Vibhisana-gita to the great devotee and Ravana’s brother Vibhisana on the battle field in the famous Sri-Rama-Ravana battle. In this battle, symbolizing the war between righteous and unrighteous, Ravana was armed to the teeth, well protected with armour and shield on his battle chariot. Vibhisana, deeply in love with Rama wondered and lay worried how his Lord without any chariot or armour and with only bow and a quiver of arrows would fight the mighty Ravana.Sri Rama explains to Vibhisana the strategy of triumph. He describes in Vibhisana-gita how well he was equipped with inner values, which alone guarantee lasting success and happiness. The teachings of Sri Rama hold good even in modern times, as we are tempted to fulfill our worldly ambitions at any cost, often comprising on true values of life.

Title:Awakening the Guru Within
Instructor:Chitra Sukhu

This course will give you the tools and techniques to move through life with enhanced ease and grace. I know many of you would love a guidebook to this journey called life. Well, this is the next best thing!

I have learned to tune to the higher intelligence, known as “buddhi”, and am happy to share this knowledge with you. This will help you to see and feel things as they really are and give you access to the ‘big picture’ (macro perspective). In this way, you will come to know that everything is perfect as it is.

In this course you will:

  • Learn to purify all levels of being so that “Buddhi” is better expressed through your thoughts, words, and actions. “Buddhi” is your true guide, your inner guru.
  • Practice techniques to bring yourself into the present moment so that you can see and feel how “Buddhi” expresses itself in the world.
  • Go over practices to use in your everyday life to strengthen your connection to “Buddhi”
  • Learn how to communicate with “Buddhi” consciously. Ask questions and receive answers from your inner guru.
  • Understand and see that you are never really alone.

Prana Yoga and Psychic Healing

Date:July 18-21 2021
Location:Bad Meinberg
Register:B210718-6
Title:Prana Yoga and Psychic Healing
Instructor:Swami Bodhichitananda

Prana, often referred to as life energy or vital force, is the key to gaining control of the mind, bringing health and vitality to the body. There are two types of pranayama, the practice of controlling the prana, Hatha Yoga Pranayama and Raja Yoga Pranayama. The Hatha Yoga technique is to physically manipulate the breath to bring the prana into the central channel of the spine. Raja Yoga uses awareness, directing consciousness along the psychic channels in the body. In other words, we use awareness to direct our prana at will. This brings greater prana into the system, energizing us with greater life force. It greatly calms the mind for concentration and meditation, and can also be used for directing self-healing to various parts of the body.

In addition to energizing our bodies with greater amounts of life energy, we can also direct prana to others for their healing of body and mind. This is the key to psychic healing of oneself and others. Swamiji will guide course participants in both theory and practice of the subtle and direct forms of Raja Yoga pranayama, as well as the basics of Hatha Yoga pranayama.

By control of prana, the mind can be easily controlled, because the mind is fastened to the prana, like the bird to the string. Just as the bird that is tied to a post by a string, after flying here and there, finds its resting place in the post, so also this mind-bird after running hither and thither, in various sensual objects, finds its resting place during deep sleep in the prana.- Swami Sivananda -

Ayurveda Home Remedies – Strenghten Your Health

Date:Aug1-6 2021
Location:Westerwald
Register:W210801-2
Title:Ayurveda Home Remedies – Strenghten Your Health
Instructor:Dr. Sivakaran Namboothiri

Ayurveda is the world's oldest holistic healing system. Ayurvedic treatment aims at balancing the Doshas to neutralize the disease process. By balancing the Doshas, the root of the disease process is cut off.
The basic rule is - whatever we can do for ourselves to improve our own health is more effective in the long run than what another person can do for us. As long as we are not living in harmony with our Prakriti (constitution) we cannot expect to be really healed by any method. Ayurveda emphasizes the importance of Ahara and Vihara (food and regimen) based on different Ritu kaalaas (seasons).Thereby maintaining a healthy state of body and mind.
Ayurvedic remedies work on a subtle internal level by correcting and improving the life force. Satwik or pure lifestyle gives peace and clarity of mind.
Our food ingredients like Ginger, Curcumin, Pepper, Cumin seed, coconut oil, sesame, coriander, Fenugreek, Garlic etc are the very powerful tools for many  disease conditions. As Taittiriyopanishad  says "Ahamannam,  Ahamannam,  Ahamannam,  Ahamannada" (I am food,  I am the eater of food and I eat  the eater  of food) and "Annam Brahma " (food  is Brahma).

Dream Yoga

Date:August 8-11 2021
Location:Bad Meinberg
Register:B210808-5
Title:Dream yoga
Instructor:Chitra Sukhu

Do you recall your dreams? How aware are you when dreaming?
The dream state of consciousness is rarely explored, yet it contains the key to many secrets of your waking life.
In this course we will:

  • Explore the 4 states of consciousness (waking, dreaming, deep sleep and turiya)
  • Discuss the history and benefits of dream yoga.
  • Understand what lucid dreaming is and survey its practices.
  • Practise techniques to move through the various states of consciousness
  • Discover how to tap into inspiration, creativity and higher intelligence
  • Learn to purify the koshas (layers of your being) to access higher states of consciousness.

If your mind is scattered, unfocused and unstable during the day, you will tend to experience scattered unfocused and distorted dreams at night – or have no dream recall. If your mind is clear, focused and stable during the day, your dreams will probably reflect that; you’ll be able to penetrate to deeper layers of mind and have better recall. Your dreams will have more meaning and greater impact when you are awaken. You’ll be able to guide your dreams and understand how they work. This may enable you to meet with beings of light and encourages communication with your higher self. We will also explore Yoga Nidra and the deep sleep state.

I have been able to cycle through different states of consciousness for as long as I can remember; I can show you how. Please join me as we dive deeply into our conscious, subconscious and unconscious minds – and go beyond the mind to the 4th state of consciousness: turiya.

Instructor:Dr. Nalini Sahay

If you have been practicing asanas, pranayamas, mudras and bandhas regularly for two years or more, you may be ready to learn Kriya Yoga. These twenty powerful practices constitute a conflict-free, non-confrontational set of exercises for awakening your inner power. Kriya Yoga techniques enable you to open the chakras, purify the nadis, and awaken Kundalini Shakti.

After completing this course, it is suggested that you continue with the practice for thirty minutes daily, in the manner specified. The various practices harmonize the pranic forces within your body. They help you to attain bliss, peace, and tranquillity. Vipareeta karani, mudra amrit pan, mudras and bandhas regulate your system. The degenerative process is reversed as the sahasrara chakra is stimulated. This improves the functioning of all bodily organs, systems, mind and emotions.

Traditionally, these techniques were never taught publicly, but were communicated verbally from guru to disciple. Paramahamsa Swami Satyanandaji first taught these kriyas in the early 1960s because he felt that Kriya Yoga fulfils the needs of spiritual enlightenment in this millennium. Dr. Sahay is a direct disciple of Swami Satyanandaji, carrying on his teachings.

Advanced yoga teachers' training- A7: Yoga Vasishta

Date:October 15-24 2021
Location:Bad Meinberg
Register:B211015-2
Title:Advanced yoga teachers' training- A7: Yoga Vasishta
Instructor:Swami Saradananda; Rama Schwab; Ramashakti Sikora

The Yoga Vashishta is an unbeatable guide to happiness in the midst of all the vicissitudes of life! Look forward to a very special, once-in-a-lifetime seminar. The highest philosophical wisdom will be sensitively, intuitively and wisely interpreted and explained.

The Yoga Vasishta is one of the most important Jnana Yoga texts. Prince Rama fees despair because of the suffering he sees in the world; he seeks a deeper meaning to life. His guru, the wise Vasishta, explains to him the highest wisdom of Vedanta, the philosophy of Oneness. The work is full of incredible stories - sometimes funny, often surreal, in parallel universes and worlds - to show us the illusionary nature of this world and our usual notions of "me" and "world".

But, the Yoga Vasishta is not a work solely for scholars and world-renouncing ascetics. Its basic message is: realise that behind the seemingly relative world there is an absolute manifested Truth. Realise that you are in fact Brahman, pure consciousness and break free from all limiting identifications. This is the way to overcome suffering and live happily.
