Swami Ritavan Bharati
20 - 24 September 2019. 

Immerse yourself in the Spirit of the Lineage of The Himalayan Tradition. The practices and teaching of this intensive silence retreat will deepen and strengthen silence.

 

Silence is not only the act of not speaking; it is something that fills, energizes, awakens, raises the power within, changing the ‘frequencies’ of your being.

Monastery The Beukenhof at Biezenmortel in Holland

Easy to reach / international connections

This Intensive Silence Retreat will allow participants to find a deep silence and obtain deeper insights into oneself and the healing power of silence (in action, speech and thought). In addition, participants will be inspired by the presentations and workshops on specific methods for relaxation (hatha yoga, yoga nidra) and philosophies and practices of meditation for a better understanding of the process of silence.

Immerging oneself in Silence provides a window through which one witnesses with deepening awareness the nature of one’s own mind.  Over the days of the retreat, that awareness increases in  subtlety and becomes finer and finer.

Swami Veda Bharati introduceert de opleiding

 

Dear Yoga Teachers and Students, 

 

It is my pleasure to introduce to you the Continuing Intensive Studies and Yoga Teacher Training Programme of the Himalayan Yoga Tradition in the Netherlands. It is a multifaceted and complete training of Yoga Meditation as taught by Swami Rama of the Himalayas. This programme has been designed to pass on the essential principles and practices of the Tradition, which fosters personal development on all levels. For the aspiring as well as the experienced teacher, the programme presents all aspects of yoga/meditation in a spiritually inspiring context. 

 

This unique program of ongoing spiritual guidance and home study is for anyone who seriously seeks self-transformation in this lifetime.  By drawing from the ancient wisdom of sages such as Patanjali, Shankara, Swatmarama and Swami Rama, students will develop philosophies and skills, which can be applied to workplace situations, personal relationships, and mental and emotional conditions, also in the western context. The practical, experiential approach to teacher training encourages students to incorporate these skills into their daily lives.

 

The Netherlands has a deep and long-term connection with the Himalayan Tradition. The Dutch teachers are thoroughly trained and educated in India in the practical and philosophical aspects of Yoga Meditation and are internationally certified to teach and maintain the high quality of the teachings of the Himalayan Tradition. These teachers are eminently capable of guiding students in their transformation process.

 

The Dutch Teacher Training Programme is supported by the teaching staff of our ashram in India. Our international teachers will visit the Netherlands regularly for workshops, retreats, guidance and general support.

 

I would personally like to invite you to participate in the programme, which includes a comprehensive roster of classes in subtle hatha yoga, pranayama, meditation and other facets of yoga science and philosophy with a highly qualified teaching staff.  I invite and encourage you to join in for silence, introspection, and training in the highest levels of Patanjali’s practices of yoga.

 

With love and blessings,

 

 

 

 

“We train people to be not merely teachers of classes, but guides of people.”

Swami Veda Bharati

Verslag en foto van Weekend Retreat on Inner Silence and Mudras with Swami Tat Sat Bharati

Weekend Retreat on Inner Silence and Mudras with Swami Tat Sat Bharati

 

by Srila Devi

 

From 26-28 January 2018, at The Beukenhof monastery in Holland, Swami Tat Sat from Berlin guided a weekend workshop on the practices that lead to inner silence. Around sixty people, mainly from Holland and Belgium, attended, although some participants from Germany, Estonia and Poland were present as well.

 

The workshop started on Friday afternoon in the monastery’s library. From the beginning, we were impressed with Swami Tat Sat’s deep wisdom, clarity and insight. Each of the sessions were a mix of practice and philosophy. Between practices, he generously shared his experiences on the spiritual path with warmth and humour, which uplifted us all.

 

The topic of this workshop was Silence, and in this framework, Swamiji shared some mudra practices with us that focus on different parts of the energy system. He did not reveal the benefits of each individual mudra, since he wanted us to experience their vibration for ourselves. We started the practice session with some slow and gentle, yet subtly powerful asanas to align our system for the mudras. Then he taught us Shanti Mudra, a practice that serves to activate the pranic system through mentally focusing on each of the chakras from Mooladhara to Sahasrara, and then expanding the light at Sahasrara, before descending again to Mooladhara one by one. The practice felt light and expansive and activated a lot of prana in our systems.

 

Thereafter, we practiced each of the mudras he showed us: Chin, Chinmaya, Adi, Brahma and Meru Mudra, respectively. We remained with each of the mudras for a number of minutes and focused on the vibrations in our system, before deepening into meditation with either Bhairavi or Bhairava mudra to end the practice. It was a powerful combination that served to guide us deeply within ourselves.

 

In the long lunchbreaks, we were able to rest, as well as enjoy the beautiful Dutch countryside on a walk that led us through forests, past rivers and lakes, and oddly, a field with lamas (the animals, not the Tibetan kind) and little kangaroos. During mealtimes, we enjoyed connecting with sangha and sharing our experiences with each other.

 

The morning sessions of Joints & Glands were beautifully led by Uta, who, together with Shailin, assisted the workshop, and in the evening, we all concluded the day together with meditation and the prayers of the Himalayan Tradition.

 

During the final session on Sunday morning, Swamiji asked for our experiences of the different mudras, before he shared their meanings. Chin Mudra, he explained, helps to balance Apana Vayu (elimination and downward flow); Chimaya Mudra is connected to Samana Vayu (digestion); Adi Mudra helps with Prana and Udana Vayu (Prana and upward flow), Brahma Mudra connects with Vyana Vayu (circulation) and Meru Mudra with Sushumna Nadi. Some people were surprised that their perceptions of the mudras were quite different from what they actually signified! J

 

The workshop ended much too soon, but we all left with big smiles on our faces and in our hearts, nourished by the blessing of sitting in the presence of a teacher with such a refined consciousness. Deep pranaams to Swami Tat Sat for his generosity, and to Kries, Mannie Sing for organizing such a wonderful weekend.

 

We are excited to report that Swami Tat Sat will be returning to Holland next February for a retreat on the Bhagavad Gita combined with the mudras.
