Summer Soul 2021: Archetypes of the Soul

2-8 July 2021 at Paradise Retreat Center

Summer Soul is our yearly signature summer retreat, held in the beautiful Danish countryside in July.

Every year, a community of like-hearted souls and spiritual seekers come together in Summer Soul for the profound experiences & connections, and to enjoy the great depths of both our inner and outer universe.

Each year brings new connections, new experiences, new lectures and activities but with the same goals: to build long-lasting connections and friendships, to regenerate and be nourished by nature, to explore the deepest parts of our being, and to find spiritual fulfillment in the warm summer heart of the Danish countryside.

This retreat is designed to take you on a journey into the depths of your soul – not through logical and dry theoretical concepts, but through profound experiences that allow us to explore a level of consciousness beyond the everyday mind, and bring us to a genuine inner awakening.

We warmly invite you to join us and discover the Archetypes of the Soul at Summer Soul 2021!

The Archetypes of the Soul

Our inner human nature is reflected in the formation of ARCHETYPES that exist in what the Greeks call the PSYCHÉ, the Hindus call JIVATMAN (the living Self), and the Christians call the SOUL.

These ARCHETYPES are, in fact, universal psychometric patterns that influence our specific qualities, personality traits, intellect, behaviors, creative inspirations, choices, and even how we see & experience the world and ourselves.

In this retreat we will explore the Tantric Elemental Archetypes with in-depth modules covering the 4 masculine archetypes (King, Warrior, Magician, Lover) and 4 feminine archetypes (Mother, Heroine, Initiating Woman, and Fascinating Woman) – guided by some of our best teachers at NATHA, each presenting one of their own predominant archetypes.

Learn how to identify your predominant archetype and discover:

  • Why you see the world the way you do – and why others see the world differently
  • How others tend to see you – and the psychology behind why people usually see you as “motherly”, “heroic”, or connected to some other archetype
  • What makes you truly happy and fulfilled – what you find most important in life, and what is needed to fulfill the deepest needs of your soul
  • Why you constantly find yourself in similar life situations  and how they are linked to the “path of evolution” corresponding to your archetype
  • The “shadow” forms of your archetype – which reveals certain negative tendencies or patterns you might have, and how to transform them into their positive counterparts

Explore masculinity & femininity through the archetypes:

Meditations, exercises, and techniques to awaken specific qualities corresponding to each archetype will be given.

For example, you will be able to develop the courage of the Warrior, the wisdom and intellectual power of the Initiating Woman, or the sensuality & romanticism of the Lover.

We will also guide you to discover and connect to your inner man / inner woman and learn how it influences your personality, preferences, & couple relationships.

And through “Tantric polarity meetings” you will experience the nuances of the sacred feminine and the sacred masculine, manifesting through each of the archetypes.

The retreat program also includes:

    • Special lectures by senior teacher and guest speaker Nicolae Catrina “Introduction Into the Esotericism of the Tantric Tattvic Archetypes” and “The Archetypal Journey of the Spiritual Hero” 
    • Special lecture by senior teacher and guest speaker Advaitananda – “The Practical Use of the Science of the Archetypes in Order to Access Superior Levels of Consciousness in Daily Life”
    • Activities & practical exercises to awaken the resonance & qualities of each archetype – including video clips, music meditations and group exercises
    • Ritual for experiencing the profound resonance with all the archetypes in each of our own beings
    • Daily morning yoga sessions to start the day feeling fresh, peaceful, and positively energized!
    • Bonfire, Ecstatic Dance party, Romantic dinner party, Cacao Ceremony, and more activities in the afternoons & evenings
    • Artistic shows and performances from local artists
    • Trips to nature & beautiful local attractions
