Silent Retreat for Revealing the supreme self with Advaita
The aim of the Silent Retreat is for you to:
– Awaken your soul
– Go deep into your spiritual heart and its mysteries
– Discover your true essence and The Highest Immortal Self, ATMAN
During the Retreat you have the unique opportunity to be in complete silence; without phones, emails and any external distractions, creating all the conditions to focus internally and discover the genuine treasures of your own inner universe; to explore the mysteries of your soul, to awaken your spiritual heart and discover your divine immortal self Atman.
This exceptional retreat takes place over the New Year period, bringing to a close the year that has been while ushering in the coming year in profound states of silence and deep introspection. Perhaps one can say that training deep meditation at that time of the year when everyone is partying and having fun represents a sacrifice that we sometimes need to make in order to achieve something higher.
One thing is for certain, it takes something more to reach to this point. To be able to take that leap into the relatively unknown domain of meditation and inner reflection, there needs to be a call within, and for most of us this means being able to quieten the mind enough in order to be able to hear that inner voice that calls us to such an experience, to make that choice to go below the surface of our, often, shallow existence.
We invite you to start the new year in silence, to discover the treasures of your spiritual heart and its mysteries. Most people never go deeper than the surface level of their mind, but what would you find if you went just a little bit deeper?
The echoes of the Meditation Retreat will live on in the hearts of all the participants; its mysterious reverberations being felt and experienced and reflected in the daily life as a shower of bliss that makes everything around reveal its luminous essential nature.
The retreat will take place in three stages:
Beginners module 26th-27th Dec
Obligatory if you attend the Silent Retreat for the first time.
It is also for those who would like to have a gentle warm up, to pass gradually from daily life into deep introspection and meditation. The meditations will be shorter and the hatha yoga practice will be longer. Lectures will include essential elements about meditation. All this allows you to gradually prepare for the longer meditations and intense program of the following camp.
Main module 27th Dec-3rd Jan
One week intensive program of meditations, lectures, guided yoga practice all with the aim of guiding you on the fascinating journey of your inner universe. This stage is a wonderful blend of theory and practice, the theoretical aspect provides the framework for the meditations, offering explanations regarding the process of entering and deepening the meditative state. Please note that the actual meditations are in silence with the aspirant using the information he has received in the theoretical part to deepen his experience in the meditation.
This stage also includes: daily exemplifications on different spiritual states offered by our spiritual guide Grieg. Personalized guidance, with answers to questions from the participants. Special spiritual activities kept together on the night of the New Year and much more.
Advanced module – 4th-6th Jan
3 days continuation of the retreat for those who want to deepen the journey. It can take a while to dig through the layers of mental agitation and reach states of profound meditation, especially if your daily practice is not enough to keep the mind silent, these 3 extra days allow you to build upon what you achieved in the previous module(s) and to go deep.

Advaita talks about the Revelation of the Self:
ABOUT THE TEACHER
The International Meditation Retreat for Revealing the Supreme Self will be guided by Advaita, who has more than 25 years experience with profound meditation. Advaita is the senior teacher at Natha Yogacenter, Copenhagen and Stockholm, and coordinator of the Atman International Teacher Training Programs in Yoga, Tantra and Meditation. He is the author of Natha Yogacenter’s 3-year Meditation Course, the most in-depth course for mastering the mind, understanding the fundamental principles and mechanisms for how the mind works and for going beyond the mind – accessing the supramental intuitive intellect and entering profound states of consciousness in meditation. Advaita is also an inspiring speaker, with profoundly thought-provoking and often surprising new perspectives on every topic that he touches upon.
The entire retreat is inspired and supported by the famous yoga teacher Gregorian Bivolaru. Even since childhood, Gregorian Bivolarus life was marked by the exceptional and the mysterious, and since a young age he received the ”call of cosmic consciousness” and began insatiably studying spirituality and practicing yoga and meditation. Upon return to the normal state of consciousness, he found himself crying for hours on end because of an inexplicable and objectless happiness, feeling a state of completeness, a grandiose and eternal reality that continued to exist and manifest itself in his being in all moments of the day. These moments left him charged with a profound state of gratitude and with an unstoppable aspiration towards perfection. All these moments would actually be the beginning of a spiritual search that was crowned with success and exceptional achievements.
For hundreds of thousands of people who have discovered spirituality and enriched their lives by following his teachings and advice, he is an utterly exceptional being, a genuine living tantric master, who has deeply and radically transformed their life in a positive way.
