This retreat is aimed at 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 of Shakti, which in turn gives a greater understanding and fulfillment. Which in turn results in living a more harmonious and prosperous life.

In this retreat we will be focusing on two 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.

· Samskara-s: herbal body treatment; composed sometimes of up to 100 different herbs, some of which are very costly, made by our teacher brought specially for this occasion from India. This gives intense purifying of energies.

· Yagna: fire ceremony. Fixing the accumulated energies within the system.

· Mantra: mental repetition of a formula of words (in this case in Sanskrit). Used for purifying the mind and building energy.

In this particular sadhana process will be working with the purification of the body and mind.  All elements we use, will be to help this process come forth harmoniously with integration.

To bring:   Please bring with you a meditation blanket, preferably red—  no animal products such as lamb skin, leather, etc.

By Car

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).
