Acarya Vibhakarananda Avadhuta "Dada Vibha" (Yoga & Meditation)
Dada is an enlightened spiritual teacher inspired by the philosophy and teachings of Shrii Shrii Anandamurti, a Tantric Master, a philosopher, author, social reformer, humanitarian and spiritual leader. The basis of his teaching weaves continuity with the ancient spiritual science of Tantra.
Dada was searching for spiritual answers since childhood, and finally introduced to wholistic practices of yoga pose, meditation and Tantra and Rajadhiraja Yoga in 1993. In 1999, after several years working in the corporate world, Dada’s strong vision for spirituality led him to a major turning point in his life when he decided to leave his job and immerse himself fully in a devoted path of yoga. He went on to pursue training in India as a sannyasin, senior yoga monk. From then, he spent most of his time teaching yoga and meditation in Taiwan and Australia and eventually returned to his native island of Bali, bringing his devotional work home.
Tantra Yoga Meditation
Science of Tantra Yoga views that perennial happiness, or Ananda (bliss) is achieved by illuminating the spirit with the radiance of Divine Love within, which also permeated the whole creation, reconnecting the mind with that Supreme Spirit, the source of absolute peace. Tantra means, “science of self-transformation to expand the mind and liberate it from bondage of ignorance”. This wholistic practice was originated in India and perfected 7000 years ago by one of the greatest spiritual giant ever lived on this earth, Shiva, the embodiment of peace.
In this Tantra Yoga Meditation session, Dada will unveil powerful, practical teachings based on the ancient practice of Tantra, one’s expansive journey into perennial happiness. Tantra yoga meditation will create harmony as well as strength that invigorate the mind and soul with compassionate love and devotion. At the same time the power of concentration and the ability to control the thoughts and emotions will be awakened. He will also share practical insights for creating peace and harmony in our daily lives, leading a gentle transformation within and around us.

I Made Janur Yasa (Somatic Therapy)
Janur has been practicing Aikido since 2003, when he began training at North Shore Tahoe Dojo in Lake Tahoe California. In 2005 he moved to Taos New Mexico and intensively training at Taos Kihon Dojo. He also trained in various Dojo during extensive travel in USA and Asia. Janur combines his background as certified Somatic Coach by Strozzi Institute California with his Aikido training. He considers Aikido as a spiritual path, and as a metaphor for daily life.
The term Somatic derives from the ancient Greek means the living body in its wholeness. In Somatic Therapy we deepen our whole body awareness through dialogue, movements, and practices. This enables us shift old patterns that no longer serve us well and make choices towards the life we want to live. Understanding the body, mind, emotions and spirit as an integrated whole, or soma, is essential for our health and having a sense of meaning in our life. We teach clients the language of sensations, where they can more easily find presence, calling and change conditioning that is no longer useful.
Robinsar Sibarani Sensei 4th dan (Aikido)
Aikido has been translated as The Way of unifying with life energy, The Art of peace, The Way of centering or Moving Zen. It is a martial art that is performed by blending into the motion of the opponent and redirecting the force of the attack. It is also one particular “Path of Truth” in the Buddhist sense. It is a warrior’s path, yet one which leads us to love our opponent, meeting hostility with peaceful reconciliation and bringing harmony into a hostile situation. Aikido strengthens inner power and deepens your connection with others.
