The retreat The Chitta is the reservoir of our memories and memories are often buried in the subconscious. Thus chitta is a foundation on which the mind functions.The Chitta is not a simple passive repository of memories, unresolved emotions or traumas because it actively influences our perception at every moment and it controls our reactions.  This mind complex keeps us away from our pure consciousness and clouds our existence.  This technique of Chitta Shuddhi allows us to observe and understand how our perception of new impressions gives rise to instinctive or primitive impulses which create various emotional states.Chitta Shuddhi, is a process of purification of our consciousness. It allows us to free our hearts from the mental constraints imposed on us by past traumas etc. Thus we can move forward freely in our lives.This spiritual retreat will be animated by Vedasara das, during his exceptional visit to Belgium.  Vedasara invites us on a pilgrimage to our heart and will share with us the practices and tools necessary to achieve a true and lasting balance.  A balance that we will experience and anchor during these three days of the retreat.
