Aug 24-28: 

 THREE - BODY PURIFICATION>

 

 

 

We all agree that life is too rushed and hectic.

We are frequently subjected to excess bodily toxicity, unnatural life-style, negative thinking and emotional issues.

The Purification Retreat is designed to flush out accumulated toxicity and interrupt obsessive patterns of thinking, uncover buried feelings. 

Sri Shyamji has had over four decades of experience in helping people to purify and integrate the three bodies.

It takes two days to purify the physical body. As Sri Shyamji’s sounds and mantras are chanted,
they act deeply on the subtle body.
On the third day, emphasis shifts to the subtle body and feelings which have been buried beneath our awareness.

This supports the purification process and helps to increase sensitivity to sound.

On the third day, the subtle body begins to respond to the sounds.

On the fourth day, purified energy from the physical and subtle body is refined enough to penetrate the causal body. The process of thinking itself may begin to feel clearer. Special sounds which produce soorya (golden) aakasha are chanted. This highly refined aakasha pushes more dense and toxic aakasha out of the causal body.
Consequently, the breathing rate drops and participants feel freer to meditate.

The fifth day is devoted to consolidating the gains of the previous days and preparing to preserve them after the retreat ends.

Dietary Protocol for Part 1

Ayurveda describes three doshas ( three types of energy) therefore  several dietary options will be available.

Transformative: Except where contraindicated, participants do not eat solid food for the five-day period. They are provided with high quality herbs and husks, teas, vitamin C, special tonics and delicious protein shakes.

Rejuvenating: Supplemented with additional organic purifying foods such as kitcheri (mung beans and rice) which are easily digested.

Nourishing: Supplemented with additional organic purifying foods such as kitcheri (mung beans and rice), steamed vegetables and other foods according to the participant's  needs.

Aug 28 - Sep 1

Advanced Workshop

Sounds for Altered States

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The universe emerged from sound.

All matter in the universe is vibrating and has its own fundamental note.
We too have a fundamental note.
We do not hear it because our senses are outwardly focused on external threats and pleasures.
By engaging with the sounds of the chakras, we can invert our senses.
In this process, various sounds become audible called NAADAs until we hear our own fundamental note which is the primary source of bliss.
Sri Shyamji's unique ability to produce the ethereal element of soorya akasha with his voice is the key to the powerful changes every participant in the retreat can expect. The absorption of soorya akasha also purifies apana,
and helps to integrate the three bodies (physical, subtle and causal).
In this beautiful environment of Chakra Institute, Shyamji will chant advanced mantras, coupled with visualizations and the extraordinary tones and overtones of the tambura (a handmade gourd instrument), will transport one to other realms of awareness. 
Tranquil meditation follows naturally.
Several participants in the past have experienced visions and altered states of awareness.
Expect transformation.

 

Dietary Protocol for Part 2

In the second part of retreat participants will have a transitional diet with three organic purifying vegetarian meals a day. They are provided with  cleansing and digestive herbs and supplements.

This protocol will help to continue to detoxify and nourish your system.

Marina Toleva > (Chakra Institute teacher and a certified Holistic Health Counselor ) will be assisting with the Retreat activities and  dietary protocol.

In order to get maximum benefit from powerful mantras and sounds chanted  by Sri Shyamji it is important to have a spring purification.

We are energized by five major praanas, or vital life forces. Of these five, the apaana praana is the detoxifier. It normally operates below the navel, where it facilitates the bodily functions of elimination. However, the stress of modern life putrifies the apaana, affecting the purity of higher praanas. As a result, different regions of the body can manifest disorders ranging from constipation to anger, intolerance to anxiety and depression, memory problems to dementia. When the apaana is purified, digestion and bowel rhythm is improved, and you will feel grounded, clear, and light.

 Periodic purifications rid the body of toxic materials. This is particularly important to energize organs such as the colon, liver, kidneys and lungs that are regularly expelling toxins.

The physical body is pervaded by a subtle body which is the source of our feelings and emotions. These include insecurity, fear and anger. Selfish relationships based on greed and competition further contribute to toxicity. The subtle body can be detoxified by special stretching and breathing exercises, devotional chanting and InnerTuning movements.

 When our physical and subtle bodies are in harmony, we can become aware of an even subtler body that is the source of our thoughts. It is the causal body which also requires detoxification by reduction of negative thoughts, inferiority or superiority complexes, depression and mistaken values which harm the health of all three bodies. These negative thoughts may be overcome by drawing upon latent sources within us.

 Aurvedic dietary protocol: The diet is designed to enhance fat metabolism in the cells. Because fat is a stable fuel, you will experience a sense of calm when you enter the fat metabolism mode. You will have three organic, gluten-free purifying vegetarian meals a day. The diet will be supplemented with cleansing and digestive herbs and supplements. This protocol will help to detox and nourish your lymphatic system.

 

Advanced vocal sounds will be taught and practiced.

Sri Shyamji’s unique ability to produce the ethereal element of soorya (golden) aakaasha with his voice, is the key to the powerful changes every participant in the retreat can expect. The absorption of soorya aakaasha also purifies apaana, and helps to integrate the three bodies.
