Satsang retreat – Naropa
Description of the retreat
This week the Dutch spiritual teacher Naropa will offer a satsang retreat.
It includes Gayatri Mantra recitation and vipassana meditation in the mornings. In the afternoon or in the evening we will have satsang with bhajans singing with the mantra group Savituryia. We will have also time to make trips to explore the beautiful Salentina area.
People not being able to participate in the retreat are also welcomed to join for a day or a single activity.
Satsang is a setting in which participants are invited and provoked to experience the essence of life. Simply by being in the presence of Naropa one comes to realize the original nature of existence. More info can be found at www.naropa.eu

From an early age experiences of enlightenment manifested itself spontaneously.
These revelations were of a transitory nature and disappeared again into the background. These experiences initiated a thorough investigation later on. (Video)
Naropa has been guided by many different schools and masters.
Main influences are Zen, Sufism, Tantra, Advaita and Bhakti yoga. Naropa has been initiated by the Indian mystic Osho and after his Mahasamadhi by ShantiMayi from the Sacha lineage.
In 2002 an irreversible shift in consciousness took place. The old mind died, and the heart woke up. The influence of this shift on the body and mind went on nearly imperceptibly.
The old structure required time to reset and be in complete service of Selflessness.
The enlightened awareness needed to incarnate into humankind.
ShantiMayi, encouraged Naropa to share his Heart.
Since 2008 Naropa has been offering Satsang and retreats.
Hundreds of people attend the meetings and experience and integrate their natural state. Many are also shocked by the effectiveness.
The congealed life is irrevocably turned upside down when the true nature reveals itself.
Naropa doesn’t proclaim any doctrine, dogma, lifestyle or cult. He can’t be categorized into a spiritual group.
People who have complete realization as a priority transform in an authentic, direct and striking manner.
Naropa is an expression of the contemporary time, the Maitrea energy, the new man.
