Trika Mahāsiddha Yoga Tradition, a tried and true path that brings one all the way from beginner to fully embodied enlightenment
The Trika Mahāsiddha Yoga tradition is an unbroken lineage of oral teachings and practices from Nondual Śaiva Tantrik Yoga's teachings (view) and practices (method) are laid out in a comprehensive and progressive system that provides a clear map of the stages through which every human being must pass on their journey to the ultimate stage of enlightenment, that of the Body of Wisdom-Light.
This system tailors the approach to the path to meet an individual's unique capacities,
interests and worldly circumstances. Trika Mahāsiddha Yoga was developed with the aim of attaining full realization in one lifetime for the sincere practitioner.
On this 5 day retreat, you will receive personal instruction, learning and practicing a set of core oral-teachings and practices from the unbroken lineage of the Mahāsiddha tradition of Indian and Tibetan adepts.
During the retreat, there are many opportunities for dialogue and discussion with Dharma Bodhi (Kol Martens) to help clarify and customize your spiritual path given your unique capacities and karmas.
You will walk away clear, confident and ready to quick-start or amplify your practice in Trika Mahāsiddha Yoga
KUNDALINI HATHA YOGA PRACTICE
Each morning you’ll be guided in the practice of Kundalini Hatha Yoga, followed by a discussion on the key principles that distinguishes traditional yoga of the mahāsiddhas from commercial posture-based yoga.
12 STAGE VIEW CYCLE OF TEACHINGS
Contrary to popular belief stable self-realization doesn’t occur in one momentary flash of “awakening”. The spiritual path has clearly defined stages everyone must traverse before attaining realization, or the ultimate potential inherent in all human beings – the Rainbow-Light-Body. This teaching is fundamental in understanding your current stage of development, what’s next on the path, and how to get there.
THE PRACTICES & TEACHINGS ON PRESENT, PRESENCE & REAL TIME
“Just be present” is the usual advice given in spiritual workshops, books, and video. Though true, dissolving your concept-mind involves much more than hearing a nice idea. What are the varying degrees of present moment awareness? What is the relationship between intellect-mind, awareness-mind and enlightened-mind? How do I work with them? How is Presence and Flowing-Presence different than merely being “present”? How can I remain unbreakably connected to my “Heart-Mind”? You will be led through this process of discovery and mastery of awareness using specific practices and teachings unique to this system.
You are unique. Mahāsiddha path recognizes this and teaches you how to customize the practices and sequencing on the path to enable you to attain the highest possible fruit in one lifetime. Unique typing technologies of self-reflection and teachings on the various categories of practitioner will be given to help you discover the type of practitioner you were born to be and take the path that best suits you.
ORAL TEACHINGS ON THE AHANKARA
The Ahankara (“self-image maker” or “ego”) is a mechanism that you can learn to use as the vehicle to attain the ultimate fruit of the path. It will be your greatest ally when you understand its nature in the context of kundalini’s journey home. Simultaneously, it’s a slippery force that can hijack your spiritual progress at any unconscious moment during the beginning and middle stages of the path. Learn to “Turn the Light” as it’s called and transform your self-image maker with these pith oral teachings, blessed with the wisdom of the lineage masters.
**OPTIONAL PERSONAL MAHĀKALA ASTROLOGY SESSION
You have the opportunity to receive a one-one online Mahākala Tantrik Astrology session with Dharma Bodhi, prior to the retreat.
This will bring to light the most critical areas of the three types of karma that create your blockages to realization as well as your spiritual strengths that you will be focusing on in your practice of Mahāsiddha Yoga.
*** The readings can only be done between the 1st to the 5th of September, as
an organic process will begin with Dharma Bodhi being connected to your karma over the following 7 days, receiving a lot of information into his psyche that he will implement into your personal guidance you during the retreat.
