Event has passed (Sat Jan 6, 2018 - Sat Feb 3, 2018)
Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Center
9:00am to 10:30am
Religion / Spiritual


A 5-session introduction to the basic guidelines and conditions for classical yogic meditation. There will be discussion on Why meditate? and the necessity to go to the transcendental level of existence to find true peace and happiness. Participants will study the mechanics of the mind and how to calm the mind and turn inward for Self-awareness. Learn to withdraw the senses and to take distance from the sensual world of objects which create desires, discontentment and restlessness in an endless pursuit of external happiness. Get support to set up a regular practice of your own.

If you can meditate for half an hour, you will be able to engage yourself with peace and spiritual strength in the battle of life for one week through the force of this meditation.
