The Cosmic Mind Yoga Retreat 2019 Paros - Greece

“Who am I?”
The ancient scriptures say – ‘I’ am not the five elements, nor the sense-organs, nor the mind, nor the intelligence, nor the ego. I am beyond all these cosmic principles. I am pure
consciousness or Brahman. Upanishads (ancient scriptures) declare it as – “Aham Brahmasmi – I am Brahman or I am pure consciousness which originates from the cosmic mind”

At the Cosmic Mind Yoga Retreat we will dive into the most ancient philosophical and spiritual systems of the World originating in India. We will take up a brief study of Vedanta
philosophy in addition to the yogic practices, which will open the doors to self realisation. The basic principle behind this is, that whatever arises from the primordial universal
source (Bhagawan Shiv ji and Mata Adi Shakti), must go back into them, only to be re-born again. Through this, they might understand their own true nature. This Divya Leela
(divine play) originates from their cosmic mind. Within this Cosmic Mind we all originate, exist and share a universal consciousness aimed at facilitating the functioning of the
universe to achieve the objective set forth by the Cosmic Mind. We will try to perceive ourself as micro aspects of the universe which originates from the Cosmic Mind by
understanding our own nature in relative comparison to nature around us, we call it the 108 principle, i.e: from an individual human (1) we enter nothingness (0) and from there
we achieve infinity (8).

Teachers


Siddhartha Shiv Khanna (Yoga guru from India)


One day I left my job to start a journey across the holy places of India in search of the real meaning of this life. After submerging myself in Gyan Yoga (Yoga of knowledge) I met Samara Kamui Bodhisatva. He initiated me to meditation and taught me many important techniques. After, I studied and practiced Hatha yoga under the guidance of an Indian Guru: Shri Yogi Anoop ji. My life completely changed on physical and spiritual level. I became balanced, stable and closer to the self realization. Then I felt that I could do the same for others. Now my life mission is to heal others and help them find peace and reaching the ultimate state of bliss where the mind is always in perfect harmony and stillness.

 “Yoga is a holistic spiritual journey first to the universe inside of you and then to the universe outside of you.  There are hundreds if not thousands of human benefits of yoga. It provides you a new outlook at life, it gives you opportunity to live to the fullest and be your real self without getting bothered about what others feel or think of you, but the main aim of yoga is self realization leading to enlightenment leading to moksh, the liberation from the cycle of birth and re-birth”.


Annika Juul (Yoga Teacher)

​ As many, I initially started practicing yoga in 2013 mainly for physical reasons, with little knowledge about the myrriad of other wonderful benefits yoga had to offer. Yoga has given me the awareness needed in order to watch my Self and the World around me from a whole new and exciting perspective; creating essential space around reactional/learned behaviour and conditioned thinking, learning to be kinder not only to those around us but to ourselves and all living creatures we share this planet with.

I teach Hatha Yoga with the Anusara principles of alignment for all levels and all age groups. I feel very strongly that an anatomically aligned asana practice is a safe practice, allowing us to go much deeper into each asana and this, along with pranayama and meditation, a perfect way to self discovery through the body we have been given on this journey.
I met Siddhartha Shiv Khanna in 2017 and immediately knew that I wanted to take his teacher training as I had a strong desire to go deeper into the roots of Yoga with an authentic and traditional Yoga teacher. Since 2014, Im fortunate to call the beautiful Island of Paros my home and along with Siddhartha, we look forward to welcoming you to this amazing experience and magical Greek Island. (I am also fluent Greek and French so if English isnt your 1st language its not a problem)
