About the retreat

During a Shaktipat initiation, a profound and sacred spiritual transmission takes place. It is a deeply transformative experience rooted in various Eastern spiritual traditions, most notably in Hinduism and Kundalini Yoga. The term "Shaktipat" can be translated as the descent of divine energy or power. In this initiation, a qualified spiritual teacher, often known as a guru, transmits their spiritual energy or "Shakti" to the seeker through a variety of means, such as touch, gaze, mantra, or intention. This transmission aims to awaken and activate the dormant spiritual energy within the seeker, often referred to as Kundalini, which is believed to reside at the base of the spine. The process can lead to profound spiritual experiences, heightened states of consciousness, and a deepening of one's spiritual journey. It is considered a sacred and transformative event, marking the beginning of a profound inner journey towards self-realization and spiritual awakening.
