The SivaOm Yoga Retreat Evia - 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 SivaOm 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”.

He is one of the first Kundalini Yoga teachers in Greece and the founder and current president of KYTA Hellas, the Greece association of Kundalini Yoga Teachers serving 135 teachers, and the president of the Hellenic Yoga Association, serving over 6,000 teachers. He has worked with the government of Greece to bring protected legal standing to Kundalini Yoga studios. He helps organize two Kundalini Yoga festivals, one in Athens and one in Thessaloniki. He organizes summer camps and activites for the UN Day of Yoga in Greece, as well as langar for the homeless and yoga for prisoners.
