Welcome back home my dearest friend to "5 Retreats for the Soul".

-> pure consciousness is what you essentially are, so why not develop your tool to see it as clear as possible.


Here I want to present for you the 5 most beautiful retreats that my soul was allowed to receive in my life.

May you one day gift yourself with one of these beautiful experiences to uplift your soul.

It is to see, I am not a Master or a Guru.
Everything here on this website is just a gift from my soul and heart to give you good guidance and support on the path that connects us all and where we will all eventually be.

I am just "a student of life and existence" like you are.

Everyone can advance here to a state of joy and bliss or raise their kundalini energy and prepare yourself for samadhi just by sincere and longer practice of the techniques I present you here on this website.

But it is to say that there are some wonderful teachers and masters ( gurus) in the world, but also many more teachers that preach what they don’t practice and truly understand ( wisdom) by themselves.

So to find a true teacher, on the spiritual path and you seek enlightenment, my recommendation for you is that this teacher should have reached the state of the first samadhi ( nirvana, breathless state).
How can someone else give you good guidance there, if he has not even reached it on his own.

-> It is true that "you are your own guru", because everything you experience, wants to teach you something.

But for many people, including myself, without the techniques given here ( or also other good ones out there) it may not be possible to raise their conscious-awareness and concentration to the level that is needed to advance further.

-> so just go on and practice every day, and if you have some extra time, you may want to look for a highly advanced "Master or Guru" that might guide you there a little faster.

True "Masters and Gurus" already know the way ( because they already went there by direct-experience) and know which roads to take.
It is like a GPS ( Guru-Positioning-System) that when you activate it, it may take you faster where you want to go.

May this be of good help for you, not to get entangled with teachers who may not be able to help you.

May your way be without distractions and full of bliss and joy,
Roman
