Israel Yoga Retreat in English


‘ Self  Transformation through Yoga ‘ 

  

prasad Rangnekar retreat in israel

Prasad Rangnekar teaching @ yogakulu vienna austria

Internationally renowned Yoga teacher, Prasad Rangnekar is in Israel to lead a retreat called ‘Self Transformation through Yoga’ organised by the Israel Yoga Teachers Association.  He will also lead classes in pranayama, asana, meditation and love and devotion in various locations around the country and both the retreat and the classes will be taught in English.  

The retreat, Prasad explains is a  correct mix of  Yoga movements, Yogic Trance, Silence, Meditations, Breath work and interesting discussions on the ancient Yogic Scriptures.  ‘The overall atmosphere of this retreat ‘ he says ‘ is non-competitive and relaxed. The emphasis being on enjoyment and understanding rather than effort, so there’ll be time for personal reflection and time too, to simply enjoy the beautiful nature of Israel’s north.’    

‘Classical Yoga is a truly wonderful system for inner exploration and personal evolution.  Hence, the basis of the workshop is to experiment and to learn from one’s own experience and sensations, cultivating a deep awareness and understanding of the mind and body, finally touching the depths of the Heart.  It’s a journey that brings you closer to the you as you are, generating self-acceptance and self-Love…. which is the basis of Yoga.’  

The weekend retreat is being held at Kibbutz Tuval, located in the heart of the Galilee region, in the breath takingly beautiful Karmiel Mountains.  Kibbutz Tuval has long been an immensely popular accommodation choice for both locals and international tourists due to its beautiful surrounds and tranquil atmosphere and if the kibbutz website photo gallery is anything to go by, it’s very easy to understand why.  The views of the area are delightful!  

If you are coming by car, there is a map on the Kibbutz website. If you are coming by train, you will need to catch a train to Acco, then a sherut ( yellow mini bus) to Karmiel which costs 13 nis, then catch a taxi to Tuval which costs about 40-50 nis. You can also catch a taxi straight from Acco to Tuval which will cost around 120 nis.  I understand that the organisers of the retreat, The Israel Yoga Teachers Association, are planning to organise a couple of pickups from the train station, so get in touch with them to arrange this.  

‘Explore yourself through the ancient path of Yoga, through movements of the body, rhythm of the breath, fullness of Heart and a deeper understanding of the ancient yoga scriptures. Through this retreat we seek to accept ourselves and generate joy in whatever we do to establish a strong conviction of the Love within and thus “Live” yoga rather than just “do” Yoga.’

Tel Aviv Community Meditates together for Gilad Shalit in Rabin Square 1st September


 

A special meditation is being held in Rabin Square at 8.30pm MONDAY 1st September. The meditation is in honour of Gilad Shalit, a young Israeli soldier who was kidnapped and is still being held by Hamas. Gilad turned 21 on August 28th.

communities coming together

Tel Aviv Community coming together

 

Whether you are residents of Tel Aviv or are visitors to the city,  you are sincerely invited and encouraged to join a special event being held in Rabin Square, Tel Aviv tonight MONDAY 1st September.

Gilad was a young soldier kidnapped in 2006. August 28th was Gilad’s 21st birthday and he has still not been released and returned to the safety of his family and friends. The purpose of tonights meditation is to, as a community group, focus our intention on his safe return.

What does group meditation do?   

Group meditations are a very beautiful concept.  When alot of people gather together to meditate, the energy of the group vibrates at a much higher level than usual.  When this heightened energy is focussed towards a particular cause/reason/ idea  it can often have very powerful positive results.

Group meditations are held all over the world for different causes and purposes. They are a very personal way for communities to come together and ‘pool their energy’ for a cause close to their hearts. There is a very real sense that you are ‘doing something’ about a problem that you would like to see resolved. You are in a very pure way, being part of the solution, it is a truly special experience. 

 What is a guided meditation?

Guided meditation is very  easy. You are not required to simply focus on your breath, but are instead asked to listen to the words of the meditation leader who will guide you to visualise a story, to create images in your mind to match the story they are speaking of.  Usually, the story will be the postive outcome of the cause/idea/reason everyone has gathered together. 

For example: For world peace one would perhaps visualise conflicting countries coming together and finding solutions. You may be asked to visualise leaders shaking hands on join decisions, to visualise genuine friendship, smiling faces and people signing peace documents.  You may be asked to visualise schools where the conflicting countries children are studying together and having fun in the playgrounds together and you may be asked to visualise people living side by side in harmony and so on and so on.

Mystic Rose is a powerful meditative therapy created by Osho, one of Indias finest mystics and possibly one of the most most teachers of the 21st century.   
When Osho created this powerful therapy he is quoted as saying I have invented many meditations, but perhaps this will be the most essential and fundamental one. It is the first major breakthrough since Vipassana 25 centuries ago”   
 MYSTIC ROSE  is a  3 week course, which runs every day for 3 hours.
 
Week 1: Laughing for 3 hours for seven days. This removes all the inhibitions and repression that hinder our spontaneous laughter and natural joy.

Week 2: Crying for 3 hours for seven days. This uncovers the next layer of repression. All the agonies and tears, allowing a great unburdening and release of pain and suffering.

Week 3: Observation for 3 hours for seven days . Be the “watcher on the hill.”  With a thoroughly cleansed heart, one sits silently in meditation.
