“Like the state of space, the mind transcends thought. Set it at ease in its own nature, without rejecting it or maintaining it. When the mind is without objective content, it is Mahamudra. Through familiarisation with that, supreme enlightenment is achieved.”
Is there a direct path to the state of enlightenment? Can we be awaken using ancient teachings and profound tantric meditations, a thound years after they have been developed? What can happen when supreme bliss unites with eternal emptiness?
Shai Tubali, a philosopher, author and spiritual teacher invites you to a journey that is beyond time and space, guiding you to learn, experience and merge with the remarkable teachings of Tilopa.
In this powerful silence retreat, Shai will focus on what he consider the most intense and direct path for spiritual enlightenment- the principle and the experience of the Mahmudra, the state and the meditation that leads to it.
This retreat is based on the direct knowing of the pure mind and the clear light- enabling you to deeply experience supreme tantric bliss united with limitless emptiness and a tremendous insight into the nature and mastery of our subtle body and kundalini process.
This ancient path is as fresh and as transformative for any human being that is looking for liberation as it was 1000 years ago when it was taught by the great teacher Tilopa, near the Ganges river to his main deciple Naropa and after him, his own main student Marpa that brought these unique knowledge to Tibet.
This tradition which is called Kagyu is coming from the world of tantra, Tilopa integrated visions that he had out of liberated state of consciousness with many methods that he was initiated for, by Indian Gurus into what was later on called- The Six Yogas of Narupa.
Among other methods, Tilopa was initiated to a state he called- Mahamudra and his powerful poem- The Gangas Mahamudra holds with it the great secrets of this liberated state of consciousness.
In the retreat Shai will interpatate this poem, initationg us, as Naropa was initatied, into the direct experience that this poem was intenatialy leading to.
There’s no way to learn this knowledge from a book, since in order to understand these ancient practice and teachings you need to be in a very high state and it it requires a lot of tantric knowledge to be able to imply the practice
You are invited to end this year and start the new one, in silence and deep spiritual quest that can give you access to liberated state of consciousness and bliss.
The retreat will introduce you to three levels of meditation practices that are build one layer after another:
- The Inner Fire meditation

The right support for your transformation
The Gift of Silence
A silence retreat is the most effective context for true and lasting self-discovery. In this intense field of awakening–created through deep silence, inspiring daily Satsangs, conscious body movements and a unique variety of meditations–the seeds of your true being can grow new roots.
“The true colours of life can be seen only in deep silence. All of life’s so-called smaller miracles–ones that are taken for granted and turn into grey reality in our daily life–are illuminated in the sharpest, most striking detail.“ – Shai Tubali
The intense group energy field
Even though the retreat is open to every seeker that is interested in spiritual awakening, also without former experience, there are well experienced meditators and former inner fire awakening and Tummo retreat participants that will take part in the event and create together a profound meditative energetic field that can support all participants and deepen the silence and self- realization.
