Jivamukti Focus of the Month

DECEMBER 2018

JIVAMUKTI YOGA FOKUS DES MONATS: ALL I WANT FOR CHRISTMAS IS MY TWO FRONT TEETH (ALLES WAS ICH WEIHNACHTEN MÖCHTE SIND MEINE ZWEI VORDERZÄHNE)

Each month Jivamukti Yoga has a special Focus of the Month, which is reflected in our yoga classes. Ever changing new inspirations help to change your perspective on the way of Yoga so you can come to new conclusions on your yoga practice.

▲▼ THE CURRENT FOCUS OF THE MONTH IN ENGLISCH:

yā kundendu-tuṣāra-hāra-dhavalā yā śubhra-vastrā vrtā, yā vinā-vara-danda-mandita-karā yā śveta-padmāsanā, yā brahmācyuta-śankara-prabhrtibhir devaih sadā vanditā sā māṁ pātu Sarasvatī Bhagavatī   niḥśesa-jādyāpahā

-Sarasvati Vandana

May the Goddess Sarasvati, who wears a garland white like the jasmine flower or the moon or the snow, who is adorned with pure white clothes, whose hands are ornamented with the Vina and the gesture of blessing, who is seated on a white lotus, who is forever worshipped by Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva as well as all the gods, who is the remover of all dullness of mind—protect me and render me receptive to learning (Brahma-Vidya) the knowledge of the Self.

- from the Sarasvati Vandana

It is Christmas AD 2200. The polar ice melted long ago. Everyone had been forced to move back from the oceans 200 years ago. All species of animals have disappeared. We join our story in New York State in the early morning after a snowfall of 12 inches…

The snow covered the ground, trees, and huts. It was pure and clean, falling steadily since last night. I reached down and scooped up a hand full and held it to my bleeding lips and gums. Before I slipped on the ice and fell, my smile beamed with the solid continuity of youth. Now, with front teeth missing, the big dark mouth had an aura of agedness and imbecility. It’s ok, there were not many reasons to smile anymore and there are plenty of reasons to keep my mouth shut. It was my own fault that I fell. I just stopped paying attention for a second. Here at the cusp of the 24th century everything seemed to be falling apart, just because we stopped paying attention. I was humming to myself that ancient child’s song “All I want for Christmas is my two front teeth, my two front teeth, my two front teeth.” The only dentists we have now just pull teeth out, so St. Nick is my only hope.

All the old big cities were submerged and decaying now. Most of Manhattan’s tall buildings had collapsed into the flooded streets. There was nothing left alive in the oceans. They had been empty for centuries, covered in floating plastic trash. Nothing except plastic lasted very long anymore, not skyscrapers, not teeth. All of the old people died quickly in the heat. Another half died from diseases carried in the little water that remained. The animals were the first to go. Wild animals, farm animals, dogs, cats, birds and rats, all were scavenged and consumed quickly by people fleeing the inundated urban environment. The humans really didn’t know how to survive without a market or a carcass. Then the humans began to eat each other, and life became untenable for a while. Humans died of terrible sicknesses when they ate each other. They went mad.

But that was a long time ago, and things are better now. There are new tribes and a barter economy. People work hard to scavenge what little remains of the old days to trade—a piece of cloth or length of wire, for a handful of beans or an apple. The farmers raise simple food and have to patrol their fields day and night to protect from thievery. They are happy to trade you an armload of potatoes for an old shovel or hoe. Eventually, the old knowledge has come back and the ability to find a meal in the forest is commonplace now. People make broth from roots, mushrooms, moss and bark, and salad from wild leaves. They say that in the old times people were actually fat. Nobody is fat anymore.

The winter came back 20 or 30 years ago. Winter is only one month long, but it comes twice each year. Our tradition is to pursue the arts during the dark cold days. We make music and dance together, and people give speeches and recite poetry about all subjects. My favorite subject is history. Things grow fast and thick in the torrential summer rainstorms and hard sun, and that makes life easier. They say the level of CO2 in the atmosphere is helpful for growing things. Sometimes I wonder what it’s like in other parts of the Earth since the late 2000’s, but something tells me that I should be grateful for the life I have, and pray to achieve the essence of Self in this very life.

There is a change in the atmosphere. There is a change in the climate. Change is the nature of life. Fighting change is not a viable alternative. People are born, grow old, and die. Planets are also born, grow old, and die. Even gods are born, grow old, and die. If we accept that death and change are facts of life, then our response should be to treasure the fleeting moments in each day and to direct change toward an artful positive end. We should strive to discover the essence of self-knowledge, that force of Cosmic Self that is not subject to birth or death.

Sarasvati is the goddess who can lead us to the essence of self-knowledge. Sara means “essence”, and sva means “one self.” Sarasvati is the “essence of one self” or the “one who leads to the essence of self-knowledge.” She appears in the Rg Veda as both a sacred river and a goddess. She embodies knowledge, arts, music, muse, language, and virtue. Some of her names mean the “power of Brahma,” “goddess of sciences,” history, music/song, speech, and the “one who dwells on the tongue of poets.” She is action embodied and her vehicle is hamsa, the migrating white swan.

The pursuit of Self-knowledge can be described as artful living. For art to be significant—meaning important, universal, and enduring—it must transcend the medium, the moment, and the artist, and continue to inform everyone who experiences it. Art that spoils in the gutter of self-consciousness and stupidity does not live past the expiration date stamped ingloriously on the wrapping. Sarasvati, through her insistence on perfection, gives immortality to art by directing it past the moment of creation into the horizon of the future.

Climate change is a fact. Where it will lead is still to be revealed, but it will lead us to some unknown future. The future has always been unknown, but, in leading artless lives now, we dare to abandon the underlying righteousness that could make any future a worthwhile adventure in being. Artful living is actually the way to make climate change into a better day. We cannot turn back the onward destruction of Kala (time), but we can make timeless history today. Artful living is streamlined, ecological, vegan, wisdom-filled, diverse, meditative, prayerful, independent, multi-lingual, world-centered, Cosmic, devoted, futuristic and historic, life affirming, and packed with the goddess force of creation.

Es ist Weihnachten AD 2200. Das Polar Eis ist vor langer Zeit geschmolzen. Vor 200 Jahren waren alle gezwungen sich von den Ozeanen zurückzuziehen. Alle Tierarten sind verschwunden. Wir steigen in unsere Geschichte in der Umgebung von New York am frühen Morgen nach ca. 30 cm hohem Schneefall ein...

Der Schnee bedeckte den Boden, die Bäume und die Hütten. Er war rein und sauber und fiel kontinuierlich seit letzter Nacht. Ich griff nach unten, nahm eine handvoll und hielt sie an meine blutenden Lippen und mein Zahnfleisch. Bevor ich auf dem Eis ausrutschte und stürzte strahlte mein Lächeln stark und mit jugendlicher Beständigkeit. Jetzt, da ich die Vorderzähne verloren habe, strahlt mein großer dunkler Mund Alter und Schwachsinn aus. Es ist in Ordnung, es gibt nicht mehr viele Gründe zu Lächeln und es gibt viele Gründe meinen Mund zu halten. Dass ich gefallen bin, war meine eigene Schuld. Ich habe nur für eine Sekunde nicht aufgepasst. Hier auf dem Scheitelpunkt des 24igsten Jahrhunderts scheint alles auseinanderzufallen, weil wir aufgehört haben achtsam zu sein. Ich summte mir das alte Kinderlied vor: „ Alles was ich Weihnachten möchte sind meine zwei Vorderzähne, meine zwei Vorderzähne“. Die Zahnärzte, die wir jetzt noch haben, ziehen nur Zähne. Deshalb ist St. Nikolaus meine einzige Hoffnung.

Alle alten großen Städte wurden überflutet und verkommen jetzt. Viele der hohen Gebäude in Manhattan sind in sich zusammengefallen in den überschwemmten Straßen. Es ist nichts Lebendiges mehr übriggeblieben in den Meeren. Seit Jahrhunderten sind sie entleert und überdeckt mit schwimmendem Plastikmüll. Nichts, außer Plastik, hält mehr sehr lange, keine Hochhäuser und keine Zähne.
Alle alten Menschen starben schnell an der Hitze. Die andere Hälfte starb aufgrund von Krankheitserregern in dem letzten bisschen verbleibenden Wasser. Als erstes verschwanden die Tiere. Wilde Tiere, Bauernhoftiere, Hunde, Katzen, Vögel und Ratten, alle wurden zu Nahrung verarbeitet und schnell von Menschen konsumiert, die aus der überschwemmten städtischen Umgebung geflohen sind. Die Menschen wussten wirklich nicht wie sie ohne Markt oder Tierkadaver überleben sollten. Folglich begannen Menschen sich gegenseitig zu essen. Das Leben geriet für einige Zeit aus den Fugen und war nichts mehr wert. Als sie sich gegenseitig aßen, starben die Menschen an schrecklichen Krankheiten. Sie wurden verrückt.

Das ist aber schon eine längere Zeit her und die Dinge haben sich verbessert. Es gibt neue Stämme und eine Tauschwirtschaft. Menschen arbeiten hart, um kleine Überbleibsel der alten Tage zu reinigen, um diese zu tauschen – ein Stück Stoff oder Kabel für eine Handvoll Bohnen oder einen Apfel. Bauern pflanzen einfaches Essen und müssen Tag und Nacht ihre Felder bewachen, um sie vor Diebstahl zu sichern. Sie freuen sich, einen Armvoll Kartoffeln für eine alte Schaufel oder Hake tauschen zu können. Irgendwann wurde das alte Wissen und die Fähigkeit eine Mahlzeit im Wald zu finden wieder aufgegriffen und ist jetzt Allgemeinwissen. Die Leute machen Brühe aus Wurzeln, Pilzen, Moos und Barke und Salat aus wilden Blättern. Man sagt, dass die Leute in früheren Zeiten dick waren. Jetzt ist niemand mehr dick.

Der Winter kam vor 20 oder 30 Jahren zurück. Er ist nur einen Monat lang, aber er kommt zweimal im Jahr.
In unserer Tradition werden die Künste während der dunklen und kalten Tage praktiziert. Wir machen Musik und Tanzen zusammen, es werden Reden gehalten und Gedichte über alle möglichen Themen rezitiert. Mein Lieblingsthema ist Geschichte. Während der sintflutartigen Sommerregenstürme und der starken Sonnenstrahlung wachsen Dinge schnell und dicht. Das macht das Leben leichter. Es wird gesagt, dass das CO2 Level in der Atmosphäre förderlich für das Wachstum der Dinge ist. Manchmal denke ich darüber nach, wie es auf anderen Teilen der Erde seit den späten 2000ern ist, aber etwas sagt mir, dass ich dankbar sein soll, für das Leben, das ich habe, und ich bete, dass ich mein wahres Selbst in diesem jetzigen Leben finden kann.

Die Atmosphäre ändert sich. Das Klima ändert sich. Veränderung ist die Natur des Lebens.
Veränderungen zu bekämpfen ist keine Alternative. Menschen werden geboren, werden alt und sterben. Planeten werden auch geboren, werden alt und sterben. Sogar Götter werden geboren, werden alt und sterben. Wenn wir akzeptieren, dass Tod und Wandel das Lebens bestimmen, dann können wir die flüchtigen Momente während eines jeden Tages schätzen und die Veränderungen in ein kunstvolles positives Ergebnis umwandeln. Wir sollten danach streben, das Wesen der Selbsterkenntnis zu entdecken, die Kraft des kosmischen Selbst, die weder Geburt noch Tod unterliegt.

Sarasvati ist die Göttin die uns zum Wesen der Selbsterkenntnis führen kann. Sara bedeutet "Essenz" und Sva bedeutet "ein Selbst". Sarasvati ist die "Essenz eines Selbst" oder "diejenige, die zum Wesen der Selbsterkenntnis führt ". Im Rg Veda erscheint sie sowohl als heiliger Fluss als auch als Göttin. Sie verkörpert Wissen, Kunst, Musik, Muse, Sprache und Tugendhaftigkeit. Ihre Namen bedeuten "Kraft von Brahma", "Göttin der Wissenschaften", Geschichte, Musik/ Lied, Sprache und sie ist "diejenige, die auf der Zunge der Dichter wohnt". Sie verkörpert Aktivität und ihr Gefährt ist Hamsa, der reisende weiße Schwan.

Sich dem Streben nach Selbsterkenntnis zu verschreiben, kann als künstlerisches Leben beschrieben werden. Damit Kunst bedeutsam ist, das heißt relevant, universal und dauerhaft, muss sie das Medium, den Moment und den Künstler überschreiten, um denjenigen, der sie wahrnimmt, anzusprechen.
Kunst, die ihre Energie in der Gosse des Egos und der Dummheit verschwendet, lebt nicht länger als das Verfallsdatum auf einer einfallslosen Verpackung. Saravati bringt durch ihren Perfektionsdrang den Künsten Unsterblichkeit, indem sie den Erschaffungsmoment überkommt, um zukünftige Horizonte zu eröffnen.

Der Klimawandel ist ein Fakt. Wo er hinführt wird sich noch zeigen, doch er führt uns zu einer ungewissen Zukunft. Die Zukunft war schon immer ungewiss. Wenn wir jetzt ein Leben ohne Künste führen, nehmen wir in Kauf die zugrunde liegenden Werte von Richtig und Falsch nicht zu bedenken, die aus jeder möglichen Zukunft ein sich lohnendes Abenteuer formen können. Künstlerisches Leben ist die Möglichkeit den Klimawandel auf einen besseren Weg zu führen. Wir können die stetige Zerstörung der Kala (Zeit) nicht zurückdrehen, aber wir können heute eine zeitlose Geschichte erschaffen. Kunstvolles Leben ist in sich, ökologisch, vegan, von Weisheit erfüllt, vielfältig, meditativ, gebetsvoll, unabhängig, mehrsprachig, weltzentriert, kosmisch, hingebungsvoll, futuristisch und geschichtsbezogen, lebensbejahend und voller Göttlichkeit.

We all want to be infinitely happy and we want everyone else around us to be happy. The yogic scriptures teach that happiness and everything else we are looking for in truth lies within us and is not depending on any outer circumstances or someone else making us happy. Let's make the connection! Through our own efforts and discipline, tapasya, we as yogis work on the purification of body, mind and intellect and clean ourselves from avidya, misunderstanding of our true essence, which is truth, consciousness and bliss.
It will get very hot in these few hours we have together. Not just because of the sweat of our asana practice, but also because of the fire ceremony and the chanting of beautiful ancient mantras. Fire, agni, is the first word in the ancient Vedas. The fire takes the mantras and all the good things as an oblation up to the sky of infinity and truth and helps us to manifest what we want to manifest in us and in the world around us. Thus, let us form our good intentions for 2019. Let us make the New Year 2019 a magnificent beautiful year with lots of inspirations and uplifting things happening and may all beings everywhere be happy and free!

DETOX MASSAGE WITH JULI WERNER (OPTIONAL)
I love to touch. It is unbelievable what is possible through a touch. Awareness can grow with a conscious touch. Far away from concepts, beliefs or judgement, we get in touch with simplicity. Then total relaxation is possible. Everything is okay as it is. We are arriving in our inner home with ourselves. Massage is always leading inwards. I am supporting this inner acceptance through touch, so you can check in with yourself and be okay with your inner state. I am looking forward to a common travel into the now, towards Love.

JULI'S MASSAGE TECHNIQUES:

AYURVEDIC YOGA MASSAGE: Relaxing whole body massage, to soften the body and dissolve old and deep rooted tensions. For straightening the body and bringing you back to balance through soft stretches. Stimulating your blood circulation and deepening and relaxing your breath.

DEEP TISSUE MESSAGE: Loosening up deep tissues with stroking movements.

REBALANCING: Was developed in the Osho-community and is taught since 1980. It was the first real connection of deep tissue massage, soft touch, “flowing” touch and meditation. The focus here is always on loving the body and becoming more aware of the body.

JOINT-RELEASE-TECHNIQUE: Joint release through rhythmic swinging and shaking. The body is moved in a passive way by becoming aware of holding and movement patterns.

DETOX RETREAT MASSAGE PRICES: 60min=99 EUR, 30min=63 EUR.

▲▼ MORE INFORMATION ON THE RETREAT LOCATION AND ACCOMODATION

Jivamukti Yoga Rügen Retreat

Tucked away in a remote corner of Rügen, amongst wheat fields, paddocks, arrays of bird nests, and bays of the Baltic, at the end of a tiny road, there is small village with a great historic granary, constructed in 1904.

Today the granary has been sensibly restored, keeping most of the details from the old design and thus retaining a generous and enchanting air with bright loft-like spaces that are perfect for practice and relaxation. Just the right space for those who seek to breathe deeply again.

Jivamukti Yoga Rügen Retreat

In addition to the cozy rooms, there are numerous lounges and fireplaces all over the building for hanging out and having interesting conversations as well as quiet alcoves to read a book. In the evenings we can warm ourselves in front of the fireplaces or in the sauna and can also enjoy the view from the big wooden terraces over the virtually untouched nature around us.

Generous 1.000 sqm over two stories, a 150+ sqm loft for yoga classes, huge open style kitchen, saunas and fireplaces, huge terraces: Our 1904 granary which we have exclusively for our groups just embodies freedom, luxury, and coziness. A perfect venue to retreat, detox and immerse into the teachings of Jivamukti Yoga.

Jivamukti Yoga Rügen Retreat

The nearby bird colony and beaches allow for spectacular walks and swims under the big skies of Germany's north. The short walk to the beach alone allows one to dive back into nature. In the evenings, there are a number of places to take it easy: in the sauna, around the fireplaces, or on the many terraces the site has to offer.

Jivamukti Yoga Rügen Retreat

This is the ideal setting to enjoy the clear air in between yoga classes before coming back into our cozy space with Sauna and radiant floor heating, which you might recognize from our Jivamukti Studio in Berlin Mitte.

Jivamukti Yoga Rügen Retreat

Our old yet very modern granary on Rügen is spoiling us with its warm atmosphere, sauna and a lot of space to arrive. In pure and remote nature we can recharge our energies and relax and detox together with Yoga, Pranayama and Meditation in order to leave behind the old year and start fresh in 2019.

Italien

THE JIVAMUKTI YOGA PROGRAM: Advanced Certified Jivamukti teacher Anja Kühnel will teach a 2-3 hour Jivamukti Yoga class every morning and evening with the exception of arrival and departure days; see preliminary program below. These will be intense and deep “workshop-style” classes with a focus on detox, in which Anja is using her years-long experience in teaching numerous international Jivamukti yoga retreats. We will experience different aspects of Jivamukti Yoga, like Asanas, Kriyas, Pranayama and Yoga Philosophy. Guided meditations will be offered every morning and Satsang/ chanting every evening.

The yoga practice will be perfectly complemented with carefully chosen detox food, made by Annika Pfeiffer and her team of the Jivamukti Canteen, as well as hikes, jogging, sauna sessions and massages for an extra charge; please let us know in the registration form. Every day we offer special detox sauna infusions and you can book special purging sauna and spa treatments and personal detox coachings for an extra charge.

As we recommended, there is the option of arriving a day earlier, Thursday, January 24 and leave a day later, Monday January 28, so we planned ahead for everyone who wants to have an even more deep experience.

If there are non-german-speaking friend among us, we will make sure that all classes are understood by everyone.

Jivamukti Rügen Retreat THE FOOD: All ingredients in the kitchen of Annika & the Jivamukti Canteen are 100% plant-based – vegan, organic and nutritious. During our detox retreat, you won’t find any  sugar, gluten or other unhealthy things on your plate. We will increase the use of alkaline-rich foods to neutralize and support your body’s natural detoxification process. The balanced relation between raw and cooked/ baked ingredients and the chosen times for group meals are designed to support the biorhythm of your body and will also help your yoga practice, leaving you grounded and well rested. Seasonal fresh fruits and veggies as our main energy provider, accompanied by optimal protein sources with a high organic availability as well as the healthiest fats and oils, spices and herbs, will inspire us to the greatest creations in canteen style, so that we can fully express ourselves in the open retreat kitchen. Colorful salad creations, creamy soups and purees, savory and crunchy stews and side dishes, surprising toppings, sweets without guilt… But always tasty and filling, and always made with Love.
All meals, drinks and snacks are arranged and well-balanced to harmonize your digestive system and support the purging that starts in your intestines. Don’t worry! We are not talking of uncomfortable, smelly methods, but the softest and most comfortable way to leverage your digestion. We will introduce you to natural tools, like flea seed husks and healing earth. You will be surprised what mother nature has to offer, in order to bring more detox in your life, even after the retreat.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED: FOR PROLONGING YOUR STAY (INCL. YOGA AND FOOD ON THESE DAYS):
A long weekend is over too fast and we get sad to have to return too quickly, especially considering the travel effort to arrive. For everyone who shares our opinion and is able to invest a bit more time, we rented the granary for 5 days so you can start this retreat softly on Thursday let it fade away into Monday afternoon. We would be thrilled if you are arriving early with us and/or leave later and offer the following options (including additional detox food and yoga program) for a deeper experience:

Arrive 1 day earlier – Thursday from 14:30 on: +99 EUR
This small surcharge includes 1 additional night (plus your chosen room upgrade option), 2 additional yoga classes, 3 additional meals and 24 hours more at the sea. This means a more intimate setting, since usually there are fewer participants, and gives the advantage of arriving during an off-peak time, avoiding the stress of rush hour. See also the preliminary schedule in the drop-down-menu higher above.

Arrive ½ day earlier – Friday from 08:00 on: +45 EUR
This small surcharge includes 1 additional yoga class, 1 additional brunch and a couple of hours more at the sea. Please know that you can move into your room only after 14:00 of your arrival day, even though we try our best to have your rooms ready before. There is a train ride at 4:48 from Berlin that arrives at 8:18 in Samtens. If people book this train, we will adapt the schedule for the morning class accordingly.

Stay ½ day longer – until Sunday evening: +45 EUR
This small surcharge includes 1 additional yoga class + Satsang, 2 additional meals (Tea-time + dinner) and a couple of hours more at the sea for everyone who wants to leave Sunday evening or night. Please be aware that you have to check out from your booked room at 12:00 on your departure day. Although we will try to arrange a late check-out for you, it cannot be guaranteed. The latest train departs at 19:41 from Samtens and will arrive in Berlin at 23:28 or in Hamburg at 23:50.

Stay 1 day longer – until Monday 12:00: +99 EUR
For everyone who wants to leave calmly on Monday, this small surcharge includes 2 additional nights (plus your chosen room upgrade option), 2 additional yoga classes + Satsang, 3 additional meals and 24 hours more at the sea. This means a more intimate setting, since usually there are fewer participants, and with the advantage of arriving during an off-peak time, avoiding the stress of rush hour. See also the preliminary schedule in the drop-down-menu higher above.

Stay 2 full days longer – from Thursday 14:30 until Monday 12:00: +180 EUR
For everyone who wants to arrive and leave calmly on Thursday/Monday, this surcharge includes 2 additional nights (plus your chosen room upgrade option), 4 additional yoga classes + Satsang, 6 additional meals and 48 hours more at the sea. This means a more intimate setting, since usually there are fewer participants, and with the advantage of arriving during an off-peak time, avoiding the stress of rush hour. See also the preliminary schedule in the drop-down-menu higher above.

LOYALITY DISCOUNTS: 18 EUR discount for these reasons (cumulative): (1) You have an ongoing Jivamukti Berlin Unlimited contract. (2)You have been part of one (or more) Jivamukti Yoga Retreats (sorry, only 1x 18 EUR discount, even though you have been part of numerous retreats) (3) You are a registered Jivamukti Yoga Teacher.

OPTIONAL TRAVEL SERVICES THAT ARE NOT INCLUDED IN THE BASE PRICE:

CANCELLATION AND CURTAILMENT INSURANCE: As we do need to be able to depend on your booking, there is a cancellation fee charged if you cannot take part in the retreat/intensive booked due to reason out of our control (like sickness etc.). Please read the details in the registration form on this. This is why we strongly recommend that you book a cancellation and curtailment insurance (starts under 20 EUR and is one of the three best curtailment insurances, by Stiftung Warentest), which you can either do in the registration form or by clicking here.
