The goal of meditation is to increase happiness and well being. This 15 day retreat provides an opportunity to develop awareness and equanimity and to purify the mind leading to clarity, positivity and peace. The course is intensely practical, offering traditional meditation and yoga practices which can be integrated into busy lives.
What is special about this course is the full-time guidance of Kumar who draws on his 35 years of experience, having studied in 38 ashrams across India since the age of 12., as well as a deep knowledge and understanding of the texts pertaining to meditation. Kumar teaches the shortest way to enlightenment as per Buddha, Patanjali & shankaracharya. 7 students got enlightened by attending these residential courses and taking one to one guidance from Kumar.
Each day begins at 5am with meditation, each session will last about 1 hour and there will be approximately 7 meditations per day. In order to relax the body there will be gentle stretching for 10-15 minutes between each mediation, followed by a break when ayurvedic herbal tea will be served. Meals are home-cooked with nourishing vegetarian food. After lunch there is a period for rest before the afternoon meditations begin. Every evening Kumar gives a discourse clarifying the theory behind the techniques given, sharing his knowledge and experience of the spiritual path and illustrating, with humour and intelligence, how we can apply these teachings to daily life.
For the duration of the course all students maintain noble silence and resolve to practiceYama, a code of conduct given by Patanjali. The aim of this is to allow focus and awareness to stay within, rather than in the outside world. Kumar says that the "Mind is like a room, if the room is to be cleaned, first we have to close all the doors and windows so that no additional dust comes in."
The course will be held at a Banana County resort in the Western Ghat region of Karnataka South India, an area of outstanding natural beauty and spirituality.
