Vedanta, Puja, Meditation, Mantra, Chanting, Satsang and anything else you wish to invoke. We feel inspired to share and deepen those teachings and practices that have helped us so and that keep inspiring us over and over again!
This will be an opportunity to spend time with the traditional teachings of vedanta which is the means for mokshah – freedom from suffering. We will spend time both with the vedic vision itself and with the practices that help us to find balance and harmony in our daily lives. We will share those things that have really blessed us, and made our lives both easier, happier and more meaningful.
If you have special wishes for topics to adress you’re welcome to let us know, the participants can also influence what we do this weekend.

Sharada & Sanna have devoted their lives to understand and pass on the tradition of advaita vedanta. They live in Bali with their teacher Swāmī Vāgishānanda Saraswatī and study with him daily since the last 8 years. In the summer they spend time in Sweden, to teach and also study with Shri Rādhāji (Dr Carol Whitfield). They can also help you with personal guidance as well as sanskrit, chanting, puja & mantra.
The vedantic teaching is a means of knowledge that acts like a mirror, so that you can see that you are full and complete the way you are, right here, right now. It shows how it is true that you are the source of all you seek, that you are the source of love, of happiness. This insight is the ultimate purpose of all yoga.
To be able to understand this in a way that is real and true for ourselves, we need to be prepared mentally and emotionally. That’s where all the yogic disciplines are important. They give us relative harmony and balance in our lives, so that we can find that which is ananda – absolute wholeness.
