Online Meditation Immersion with Carlos Pomeda

VBT Meditation Immersion with Carlos Pomeda

Dive Deep on the Vijñāna Bhairava Tantra

The word “Vijñāna” translates to “consciousness” or “knowledge,” and “Bhairava” refers to Shiva in his fierce or awe-inspiring aspect. The text is considered a profound exploration of various meditative techniques and is highly regarded in tantric philosophy and spiritual practices.

Vijnana Bhairava Tantra covers a wide range of topics related to meditation, including breath awareness, visualization, concentration on energy centers (chakras), contemplation on various objects, and techniques involving sound and mantra. The practices outlined in the text are meant to help practitioners transcend the limitations of the mind and experience their own divine essence.

In this series, we will immerse ourselves in the nectarean ocean of meditative practices selected from this sublime text. As we progress through the various forms of meditation, the inner state becomes deeper and deeper, supported by our contemplation, analysis and discussions. The course is designed particularly to deepen our understanding and experience of meditation, to shift our internal state and anchor it firmly in internal, blissful awareness. It will be a true banquet for the soul.

Open to all levels of experience in meditation.

He is currently working on a book on the topic of “Karma and the Journey of the Soul”, as well as an updated History of Yoga and a new translation of the Śivasūtra, an important Tantric text of the Kashmiri tradition .

Carlos travels extensively around the world conducting a variety of retreats, courses, seminars, workshops and lectures on the Wisdom of Yoga and related subjects.
