Chakra system retreat: December 27th 2018- January 3rd 2019, Lanzarote
This cycle of five meetings is aimed at those who wish to undertake a course of theoretical-experiential knowledge, regular over time, which leads to a real deepening of the system of yogic esoteric physiology that explains the functioning of the body-mind system, following a program defined and a coherent pedagogical approach.
In this body lies Mount Meru, and is surrounded by seven islands, as well as by lakes, seas, hills, plains and by ruling deities (Shiva Samhita II, 1)
During the 5 meetings we will build the basics to get in healthy contact with emotional and psychological energies that can bring balance in our life.
Often we live completely absorbed by some aspects of our lives, losing sight of the richness of what surrounds us and with which we are naturally interconnected.
We will use an ancient navigation map, but very current, very fascinating and very rich.
Through theoretical study, meditations, visualizations, breathing exercises and asanas, we will come into contact with different physical, mental and emotional aspects, locating them in the physical body and awakening them in the mind to maintain a balanced relationship with the various life experiences.
This path of study is suitable for all students and teachers of Hatha Yoga who want to know this model with greater detail and depth.
First Meeting: BEING STABLE AND RESPONDING TO OUR NEEDS
One whose mind is not shaken by adversity, which is free from attachment, fear and anger, is defined as wise with a steady mind (Bhagavad Gita, II, 56)
The functioning of our body-mind system is explained by oriental cultures through a very rich energetic model. We will explore it by coming into contact with concepts such as Kosha, Nadi and chakras. We will deepen the concepts related to the first chakra: Muladhara. Understanding how a strong connection with our needs and our deepest instincts allows us to lay the foundations for a harmonious development of our personality.
How to find stability in the continuous ups and downs of life? How to live our needs?
Second Meeting: TO BE IN CONTACT WITH OTHERS
Some are taken in the laces of traditional doctrines, others by the quantity of Vedic prescriptions, others by philosophical systems, they do not know the means that saves (HYP IV, 40).
After a review of the fundamental concepts we will try to reawaken our ability to enjoy life in a balanced way, coming into contact with the Svadisthana chakra. At the base of our growth lies the feeling of knowing that we deserve a good life and be able to enjoy life. This is related to our relationships with others.
How to cultivate nutritive relationships that respect our values?
Third Encounter: AFFIRMING IN THE LIFE AND POWER OF THE HEART
To be healthy, we need the earth and the sky
We will explore the third and fourth chakras, Manipura and Anahata. As a correct connection with our needs we can manifest our personal power and our personality in a healthy way, to establish lasting and balanced relationships, through a full and complete expression of our feelings. Against ourselves and towards others.
How to rediscover the strength to express our individuality, how to rediscover compassion towards ourselves and towards others?
Fourth Meeting: EXPRESS YOU IN A HEALTHY WAY
Focus on what is bright and beyond pain (YS, I, 36)
Connected to our heart we can nourish the most true and profound part of ourselves and express ourselves in a healthy way. The Visshudi chakra, in the throat is considered the point where the energy resides that allows us to express our emotions and understand the emotions of others.
How to find the strength to make our voices heard?
Fifth Meeting: BE CONNECTED WITH HIGH SCOPES IN LIFE
A single step will not constitute a path on earth, just as a single thought will not form a path of the mind. To make an intense mental journey, we must think and rethink thoughts that we hope will govern our lives. (Henry David Thoreau, Walden)
At the end of our trip we will take care of Ajna and Sahasrara. Our voice in the world must be mediated by a pure heart and a clear mind. This allows us to remain connected with our highest values, our dreams and our ideals, while remaining connected to the practical aspects of life.
How to remain open to our inner guidance and intuitions?
