  • Asti / OSHO DYNAMIC MEDITATION

    This meditation is a fast, intense and thorough way to break old, ingrained patterns in the bodymind that keep one imprisoned in the past, and to experience the freedom, the witnessing, silence and peace that are hidden behind these prison walls.

    Kristiina Viires / TANTRA YOGA

    In this class we will practice yogic postures and techniques whose roots are found in the ancient Indian and Tibetan Tantra yoga lineages. You will learn how to bring conscious awareness to your sexual energy, and using different exercises, amplifying or sublimating it, thus inviting in the states of ease, pleasure, presence, joy, freedom, aliveness, unity and bliss. Come as you are! No previous yogic experience is required. You need a yoga mat, comfortable clothes and something warm to cover yourself during final relaxation.

    Shastro / MORNING MINDFULNESS SESSION

    Shastroʼs meditation sessions are usually divided into two parts: In the first one, he shares his understanding of what meditation is and he often invites people to ask questions or share their experiences, making it a lively and ʼtailoredʼ session for the participants. The second part is mostly in silence interspersed with gentle suggestions, guiding the practitioners into maintaining their attention in the present moment and encouraging them to witness all that arises within consciousness. At times he also uses walking as a way to bring practitioners to experience a sense of meditation in movement.

During this workshop you will experience male bonding, empowerment and energy boost that you can take with you to connect with others during the festival…

  • DOORWAY TO SILENCE In this meditation we use the sense of hearing as our entry doorway. When we listen attentively the traffic in our heads naturally stops because consciousness, engaged in the sensorial perception, is removed from the thinking process. Through music - and all the surrounding sounds - alternating with periods of meditative silence, we will be able to be more present to the Now and perceive the inner space - that is alive and beyond time - in which everything happens. ❤️ Festival Closing ceremony with all teachers, musicians and BTF team
