Ancient astrologers have assigned the four elements of earth, water, fire, and air to better characterise the signs of the zodiac. This is not by chance, as it was typical of their vision of the cosmic world. Each group of three signs reveal a basic feature in human individuality. These zodiac groupings are:

1. “It is always very good for us to become aware of our own ignorance”
2. “Very often we run after chimeras to avoid confronting our own inner world.”
3. “ Before starting to climb to the highest spiritual heights, it is better for us that we first start to purify our being”.
I am sitting in my bed with my laptop on a Friday evening in the start of January, and recalling my wonderful experiences from the Heart of Tantra-retreat from December 27th 2010 to January 2nd 2011.
I knew already since the Summer Camp 2010 that I wanted to participate – and had promised myself already when I left the Summer Camp that I would be on stage somehow. At that time it seemed very easy to make that promise to myself – and after all, I could always draw it back when the New Year's camp came nearer.

KARMA YOGA is the path of detached action which makes possible the spontaneous tuning of the aspirant with the infinite divine energies. By carrying out his daily activities or social duties without any attachment or desire for getting hold of the results or the fruits of the action, the karma yogi is constantly purifies his mind and accelerates his inner progress.
Our Actions Bear the Fruits of Our Responsibility
We live in a time of humanity’s evolution in which we must learn the lesson of living together. This lesson takes place with all its ups and downs, and makes us face both our inner tendencies and the consequences of our own actions. The planet has become too small for ignoring one another, and it is even smaller for such big egos (huge in some cases).

The term "crisis" comes from the Greek word "crizis", which refers to the action of analyzing, choosing and deciding. Most often, a crisis is a sudden, unexpected modification, often decisive, which appears during an illness. It can lead to a beneficial and favorable transformation, which brings an improvement and eventually the cure of that illness, or to an unfavorable, distressful change, which triggers the aggravation of that illness, deterioration and even death.

The discovery of the Self is a fascinating adventure, a journey full of experiences which you can make either alone or not… But in the couple the spiritual transformations are much faster and more efficient. And, as we all look for accomplishment through love, it is more natural to step towards the peaks of perfection together with the beloved being.
Sharing The Christmas – A Tradition Of The Heart
At Natha Yoga Center we have celebrated Christmas with all our dearest friends on 22nd December and I am happy to share here with you some impressions from the evening…! In a warm and heart full atmosphere we came together all the teams and friends of the yoga center and we chatted, laughed, meditated, eat, enjoyed the reunion and of course we received our personalized gifts and mottos for the evening.
It was wonderful to see how after another year the love we share for each other is growing more mature and how the beginners are growing, how friends stand by, how the Christmas spirit gathers around the Christmas tree bringing out the best and most beautiful in all of us. The chefs of Ambrosia (the vegetarian restaurant in Concordia) have prepared a delicious Christmas meal with Danish, Romanian and international recipes of the season…of course we had “sarmale” and of course we also had “ris a l’amande”!
