Madhukar Enlighten Life Offers 6 Days Advaita Vedanta – Non Duality – Self Inquiry and
Silent Meditation Retreat in Oberstaufen, Germany
Thursday 9th April 2020 – Tuesday 14th April 2020.

A relaxed Enlighten Life Retreat with Madhukar in Oberstaufen, where you learn to find inner peace. 

Satsang, consisting of meditative silence and support, is held twice daily. 

Let‘s explain: Satsangs are gatherings where busy minds cool down.
Through silence, meditation, dialogue, music and ecstatic dance. 

In Madhukar’s mere presence you experience a tranquil state of consciousness. His clear guidance helps you to uncover your natural authenticity. That enhances wisdom and nurtures your mind towards inner peace. 

Someone who seeks peace and freedom is naturally drawn to the mountains. Oberstaufen offers magnificent panoramic views up to the Swiss Alps. The pearl of the Allgäu combines modern lifestyle and alpine tradition in a marvelous way. 

In the morning enjoy a sumptuous breakfast and then we meditate together. During lunch your eyes graze over the gently rolling hills. In the afternoon you have plenty of options to choose from: Relax and release by taking a rest, wellness & sauna, golfing, playing tennis, cycling or hiking. Bring some sturdy footwear for the legendary trek with Madhukar.
In the evening, true peace reveals itself during Satsang with Madhukar: Thoughts fade and give way to inner silence. And that is, amidst the mountains, your greatest bliss! 

The retreat starts on Thursday, April 9, 2020 at 6 pm and ends April 14, 2020, after lunch at 2 pm. Retreat languages are English, Dutch and German. In addition, free Yoga classes are offered. 

You are welcome to join! 

The aim is to explore and realize the perennial, non-dual understanding that lies at the heart of all the ancient spiritual traditions, such as Advaita Vedanta, Buddhism, the Vedas of Hinduism, mystical Christianity, Zen, Tao, Dzog-Chen, Shamanism and Sufism. Here we will plumb the depths of the logos of Being, of eternity. You will learn about, understand and gain your true blissful nature, which is underlying, as the ever-present reality, all of our own experiences.

Madhukar – Enlighten Life is a contemporary, experiential approach of Jnana Yoga, the Yoga of Wisdom. The Enlighten Life retreats and events offer an unique, direct transmission of knowledge through Satsang. They include meditation, dialogue, silence, guided meditation, and other modern techniques of mastery which will support you. It requires no affiliation to any particular religious or spiritual tradition. All that is required is an interest in freedom, the essential nature of experience. And a longing for love and peace, the desire for meaningfulness and happiness, around which most of our lives revolve.

About Madhukar, Founder of Madhukar – Enlighten Life

Madhukar is a direct disciple of Papaji (Sri H.W.L. Poonja), the „Lion of Lucknow“, whose Guru was the famous sage of Arunachala, Sri Ramana Maharshi.

Born in Germany in 1957, Madhukar began already in his youth to ask a multitude of spiritual questions which grew more urgent after an experience of Oneness and a near-death experience. After experiencing a spontaneous Kundalini awakening, Madhukar ended his professional career and became a student of the Dzogchen Master Namkhai Norbu and continued looking for absolute truth. This search ended in 1992 in India where he met Sri H.W.L. Poonja (Papaji). Madhukar had arrived at his Master who ultimately awakened him to his own true nature. Read More

Info About Non-Duality and Advaita Vedanta Meditation During
Enlighten Life Retreats

Advaita is the bliss to be one with oneself and the world. Advaita is a term from Sanskrit and means literally ‘Not-Two’ or Non-Duality. Vedanta means ‘End of knowledge’. Freely translated, this implies that all knowledge comes to its end in the experience of Non-Duality of mind and matter. Advaita is a philosophical direction from India indicating the indivisible Oneness. Whilst elsewhere is made a difference between creation, creator and creatures, in Advaita there is only the One which manifests itself in infinite different forms. Therefore, in the end, the perception of any form, the one who is perceiving and the perceived object are an indivisible whole in its essence.

About Silence Meditation During Enlighten Life Retreats

In the history of all religions there are well-known stories about the Divine or God revealing in silence. Silence is the most powerful force in the universe. It is the ground of being. In silence inner peace and happiness reveal.

In Madhukar’s silence meditation, no physical or mental exercises (e.g. Asanas) are practiced. It is aimed at direct self-realization. In classical philosophical terms one speaks of self-consciousness or self-awareness. In the yogic traditions, “silence” denominates the timeless basis of existence, in which everything comes into being and vanishes again.

Madhukar: “Silence is the mightiest power in the universe. Through silence we can give up the importance of the own person and recognize our freedom.” More info About Silent Meditation
