▽ GUEST ARTISTS: MATTHIEU GOMCHEN
Matthieu (Gomchen) is an experienced musician who loves devotional music. He has been guiding kirtan singing circles for a good number of years. Also, he has a background in hatha yoga and vajrayana buddhism. He has sensitive and engaging approach to sharing songs and chants and will invite us all to open up and harmonise within ourselves and with each other, by singing together.
Shaktipat (Sanskrit meaning: descent of grace) is one of the highest Tantric ceremonies. Through ritual and austerities we invite the universal life energy into our being. Awakening our potential of effortless ease, flow and bliss.
Shaktipat is an individual, passive meditation. You will receive blessings of water from the Ganga river, sacred Indian ash, Kumkum and touch of the third eye. Indian Vedic chants will support you to go deeper in your meditation and invocation.
A Shaktipat can be a deeply transformational experience.
Kundalini, also referred to a life force energy, is the essential energy of the deepest potential of our soul.
Kundalini can awaken through thorough practice such as yoga or breathwork, by spontaneous activation, by birth or through receiving Shaktipat from an ancient Tantric lineage.
We consider Shaktipat a safe way of awakening, as the lineage will ensure a smooth transition of your self-realization journey.
An awakened Kundalini can bring about massive life transforming experiences and crucial spiritual awakenings.
▽ SIDDHA LINEAGE
The Shaktipat ritual is performed according to Siddha tradition. One of the oldest Tantric lineages, mentioned in the Bhagavad Gita. Its primary objective was the direct, effortless awakening of the Kundalini. Through ritual and prayer we invoke the guidance of Bhagavan Nityananda, a meditator residing in the mountains of Maharastra, India.
Kabira has received initiation in the lineage in 2016 from Bud Barber. He was carefully chosen by Nityananda’s direct disciple Muktananda to give Shaktipats around the globe.
Kabira received initiation to give Shaktipat too in Nityananda’s Ashram in 2018. Ever since, she has performed over 40 Shaktipats across the globe, from Amsterdam and Berlin to Thailand and Melbourne.
