Each year Mahasiddha Yoga offers unique and expansive group meditation retreats in picturesque city of Pochara, Nepal. The retreat usually takes place in early December, just after our Autumn season in Rishikesh. In this way our students are offered the chance to deepen and refine their meditation practice in the profoundly immersive and supportive environment of the Himalayan mountains.
The Mahasiddha retreat is a profoundly immersive experience aimed at accessing our ultimate identity through two complimentary forms of meditation. This systematic technique aims to progressively reveal our true divine nature through meditation for the revelation of the Supreme Self ATMAN and the highest form of Tantric meditation Laya Yoga.
During the retreat the various modalities of meditation will be discussed and explored, including esoteric Christianity and Kashmir Shaivism. Through this approach, students will develop a deep connection to the techniques of meditation, which progressively leads towards focussed states of concentration, ardent spiritual aspiration, profound blossoming of the soul and highly elevated states of consciousness.
Through skilful and attentive guidance from an advanced practitioner along with the flow of grace specific to the Mahasiddha lineage, students will be guided artfully towards experiences of intense spiritual alchemy, blissful inner expansion and profound surrender into the realm of spiritual revelation.
During this retreat aspirants will gain
- The ability to disengage from external stimuli to become deeply focussed on the internal experience
- Superior levels of inner awareness, presence and expansion
