10 – 19 July

We invite you to join us this July for the annual Maha Vidya Retreat for the celebration of the Great Macrocosmic Power of Wisdom, Order and Godly Harmony: Matangi.

This is the 9th retreat of the series of profound sharings from the Tantric Wisdom Tradition of the 10 Great Macrocosmic Powers of Manifestation. It is an extraordinary chance for all those who want to take a significant leap in their spiritual transformation – whether you are a beginner or advanced Tantra / Yoga student.

The Great Macrocosmic Power Matangi is the Supreme Logos manifesting through speech. She is the Great Goddess of the “spoken word” and any other kind of exterior manifestation of knowledge, including art, music and dance. The Godly Logos is not only an affirmation or a theoretical or practical aspect, but a vivid and effervescent expression of energy and ecstatic happiness.

Beatitude (ANANDA) represents another aspect of the Great Macrocosmic Power Matangi, that appears for us in this way to be very active, passionate and perfectly happy in this godly game of manifestation.

Matangi is the governing force of all forms of knowledge, being an advisor and a teacher on this path. She represents the teachings of the Spiritual Guide and the spiritual tradition that he embraced. She expresses through the being  of the spiritual guide that is offering his wisdom to the disciples, especially through spoken word.

By the grace of the Great Macrocosmic Power Matangi, the true and devoted adorer is helped to transcend the conventions and limitations of the manifested world. She guides in a godly way the visible world (SAMSARA) towards the pure and holy land of godly transcendence.

The Maha Vidya Matangi Retreat includes:

  • Presentation of the Tantric tradition of adoration of Shakti and the manifestation of the universal feminine force as the 10 Great Macrocosmic Powers
  • In-depth introduction to Maha Vidya Yoga and the celebration of the communion with The Great Macrocosmic Power of Wisdom, Order and Godly Harmony Matangi
  • Guided Hatha Yoga sessions
  • Special unique initiation offered only in this Maha Vidya Retreat – in resonance with the sphere of force Matangi
  • Tantric principles under the sphere of force of Matangi
  • Unique exemplifications, meditations and practical exercises with specific nuances of the energy of Matangi
