Yoga of Tamil Siddhas and Powerful Temples around Auroville
Do you know what ancient Tamil legend says about Auroville? Siddha Yoga, legends, temples, pujas and more! Bus included, one-day "talk & walk" experience - theory, practice, history, sightseeing with Bala & Max on Sunday, 11.02.2018

Auroville bio region is comprised of villages which are part of an ancient Tamil land known as THONDAIMANDALAM meaning "land of the wise". The region is famous for its Siddhas - the followers of Shiva, human beings who has achieved a high degree of physical and Spiritual perfection or Enlightenment.

During the first part of this Intensive (inside our yoga space), we will talk about famous South Indian Siddhas, their legends, predictions and practices. We will dive into one of the main written works of this special Yoga - "Thirumantiram", which was written at the same time and even the same place with Patanjali's "Yoga Sutras".
We will talk about symbolic and spiritual meaning of a typical Tamil temple structure, we will understand symbols and meanings within a Puja worshiping (and will participate in a special Puja later on).
Moreover, you will try yourself the ancient Siddha Yoga practices and see how had Siddhas achieved such great results!

During the second part of the Intensive after lunch break, we will go exploring (not far from Auroville): we will visit some powerful temples and see that Shiva temples, Vaishnava temples & local gods shrines, spirits and animism are worshipped with the same rigor by everyone in the region. This will help us understand the acceptability and versatility of the people of the region where Auroville was born.

Conducted by: Bala & Max
Time: 10.00 am – 6:30 pm with lunch break
Fees: Fixed contribution for guests; Students and volunteers contribute 50%; a minimum contribution for Aurovilians and Newcomers.

Exploring Prana and Marmas
one-day intensive to understand and feel the subtle body while discovering and working with marma points, with Nadia on Sunday, 18.02.2018
In this Intensive we will explore Prana, the first sub-dosha of Vata according to Ayurveda.

Through the art of Marma, Yoga meets Ayurveda and creates a beautiful synergy for health and balance.

Through our Marma points we can develop more awareness of our own bodies, Sthula Sarira (gross body), Suksma Sarira (subtle body) and Karana Sarira (causal body). During the exploration of our Yogic-Ayurvedic Anatomy we will understand the link between each Marma point and each body-function, Mahabhuta (elements of nature) and Dosha (Vata-Pitta-Kapha) in an holistic perspective according to Ayurveda. We will use different techniques to approach our Marmas: movement, breathing, meditation, chanting and sharing our own direct perception. A combination of theory and practice will lead us to a deep understanding of our own body and its strong relationship with Nature.

"OUT OF BODY EXPERIENCE" and its benefits
Theory and Practice - One day Intensive with Egle on Sun., 04.03.2018
Imagine how would you experience this Reality if your perception is not limited to simply physical senses? "Out of Body Experience" (OBE) brings profound cognition of this reality and its different dimensions.

OBE is neither a modern trend nor a practice accessible only to the "gifted" ones. It is as an ancient spiritual practice as any other we've inherited from worldwide spiritual traditions and is a natural outcome of Meditation, Yoga Nidra or Buddhist Practice of Conscious Dying. OBE is easy enough to achieve, once the process is understood. OBE has an extra advantage - it can be practiced during sleep, which means that 1/3 of your life can be used and become conscious and fulfilled.

During this Intensive we will gain the understanding of what OBE is, why and how it happens and clear it from any inaccuracies and fears; talk about the link between OBE and the process of dying. We will learn about different techniques to achieve OBE. It will be shown, how OBE can be integrated into one's spiritual path and what benefits does it bring along.

Techniques of this one-day-intensive can not to be regarded as a therapeutic tool. They are meant only to give an idea of OBE in order to enrich one's life and/or spiritual practice.

Intensive Program:
- Theoretical part until lunch:
• What is Out-of-body experience (further: OBE)
• What is the process of OBE
• OBE versus lucid dreaming & astral projection
• OBE & Yoga Nidra
• OBE & conscious death process
• OBE as a spiritual path
• Scientific research on OBE
• Brainwaves and different states of consciousness
• OBE's importance in Integral Yoga
• Other benefits of OBE
- Practical part after lunch:
• Various OBE and inner exploration techniques
• Q & A


Materials will be provided for download for home practice.
Please bring with you: small pillow, thin blanket & sleep mask.
