Vijñāna Bhairava means "divine consciousness", the Tantra script contains 112 yoga meditations. The awarness is directed to different objects: the breath, the body centers, the universe. There are also visualizations, contemplation, japa and concentration.
"The supreme consciousness is not only transcendent in nature but is also found in the
beginning and end of each perception, in-between two breaths, between two states of
consciousness, as for example between waking and dreaming, but also at the time when one
experiences extreme emotions like happiness or fear. It is for this reason that one can always
and at any moment experience that supreme state. However, the problem is that we are
always preoccupied with our thoughts (vikalpas) and thus are enveloped by the self-imposed
problems. These practices direct our attention (avadhāna) away from these problems and
enable us to experience deeper aspects of vimarśa leading to the forth state (turīya), the goal
of all yoga practices."
The retreat is for those who want to get to know more in-depth mediation techniques from the tradition of Kashmiri Shaivism and to develop their own in-depth meditation practice.
During the afternon there is enough time to explore the beautiful surroundings of the island of Korcula, go swimming or hiking.
The seminar is in English.
