In the Mediterranean Coast (Costa Dorada) just south Barcelona in a 4 star hotel 100 mts from the beach we celebrate a spiritual retreat dedicated to meditation and the teachings and techniques that Gururaj Ananda Yogi taught to the world.

A retreat valid to both beginners and experienced meditators, the first two days of the retreat are dedicated to teach the various meditation and mindfulness techniques that will be practiced during the retreat. The instruction is based on how to meditate effortlessly. Several tecniques are learned, amongst them:

  • Anapana (Vipassana) Meditation,
  • Mantra Meditation for beginners,
  • A Visual Meditation (Tratak) practice which develops the power of concentration and deepens ability to focus and have greater awareness in daily life. With greater awareness in daily life we experience the true value within ourselves.
  • Pranayama (breathing practice) which detoxifies the body, attunes oneself to a higher rhythm, and captures the vital force within to gain needed energy. 3)
  • A Shakti Meditation practice to connect with the universal principle of grace. Shakti is that universal force pervading everything in the universe. (Loving-Kindness Meditation)

Programs are structured to allow maximum benefit from morning and afternoon group meditation practice. During each day there are regular times for group discussion, and several different workshops on different topics and teachings allowing the opportunity to explore questions, ideas and experiences that arise through meditation practice. There are also Satsangs which are gatherings which include presentations and discussion on topics related to personal transformation and living in grace. Satsangs are directed by highly experienced meditation teachers from USA, UK, and Spain. All sessions are bilingual spanish/english with translation to english or spanish as it may be needed with each of our lecturers.

All satsangs are based on commentaries about video satsangs of Gururaj leaded by various senior teachers from all around the world.

The retreat will, as always, flow with the shakti and thus is subject to all kind on unexpected surprises!

There are also opportunities for physical activity, with silent morning walks, yoga and Tai Chi classes led by experienced, fellow meditators.

Free time is provided each day, and activities such as art projects and “film nights” provide creative and social outlets that complement the deepening of personal spiritual experience that unfolds during each course.
