The AlpenRetreat Video
22/03/2013 - 1/04/2013 - Arrival starting 4:00 PM, Departure till 1:00 PM
This retreat is aimed at the awakening the dormant kundalini energy and purifying the various energetic structures of the body, it also prepares the being for opening towards deeper states of meditation, getting the system in resonance with Shakti, which in turn gives a greater understanding and fulfilment.
In this retreat we will be focusing on three essential aspects within the realm of spirituality:
As a path of right-hand Tantra (non-sexual), we use multiple ways for purifying, preparing the being and increasing energy (shakti) in the body, mind and spirit.
- Mantra: mental repetition of a formula of words (in this case in Sanskrit). Used for the awakening and increasing the power of Kundalini.
- Yagna: fire ceremony. Fixing the accumulated energies within the system.
- Yantra: a spiritual diagram made from earth, sprouting grains, urns and jewels, which corresponds to the energy of Kundalini. By creating this yantra the practitioners are able to harmonize and greatly increase the effects of their Sadhana and the arousal of Kundalini Shakti.
This retreat is only being shared by the blessing of Guruji Raj Kumar and results that can take months and years of sadhana to manifest take only a few days in these special circumstances.
To bring: Please bring with you a meditation blanket, preferably red— no animal products such as lamb skin, leather, etc.

Located on the Tyrolean Fernpass, in the north-west of Austria, close to the German border the AlpenRetreat is easily reached via the Fernpassstrasse B179 (E532).
At the top of the Fernpass (Fernpasshöhe) there is a petrol station named "Dolle". Opposite of it on the other side of the street is a roadside restaurant (Fernpaß Rast), a red building, and a big yellow building (the former Fernpass hotel). Follow the small street between the restaurant and the yellow house for about 200m and you have reached the AlpenRetreat.
Places connected by the Fernpassstraße
Füssen – Reutte – Heiterwang – Lermooser Tunnel – Fernpass (AlpenRetreat) – Nassereith. At the border-tunnel in Füssen the Fernpassstrasse connects with the federal highway 310 and the A 7. In Nassereith it merges into the B 189 along the Inntal (Inn valley) in direction south-east towards Telfs and in south-west direction towards Imst.
In winter it is compulsory in Austria to have winter tires on your car. Although the Fernpassstrasse is well maintained and therefore easily accessible, sometimes the streets can still be covered in snow. In exceptional cases snow chains may be required (very rarely). If you are coming with a rental car, make sure it is equipped with winter tires (the rental company is obliged to provide this).
