HARA: Living from the Source of Being
The Hara Center (Tanden) is situated four to five centimeters below the navel, inside the body, and it is referred to as the Source of Life in the ancient traditions of China and Japan.
Hara is also the center of Being, the place where we can experience ourselves in our true identity, in inner silence and peace and where we can find physical, mental, emotional and spiritual balance.
As we become aware of the Hara point and we start living from it, looking from it, experiencing ourselves and the world from it, we will connect with the source of strength and silence within.
In this retreat we will reclaim our deepest center through specific ancient, and for long secret breathing techniques called Hara Breathing or Pre natal breathing, as well as specific meditations and exercises of centering and grounding. We will also explore the potential of the Hara Center through focused inquiry.
“The more you are aware of the Hara, the less you will become afraid of life and death —because that is the center of life and death. Once you become attuned to the Hara center, you can live courageously. Courage arises out of it: less thinking, more silence, less uncontrolled moments, natural discipline, courage and rootedness, a groundedness.” Osho
