Meditation Course – Free – starts January 9th 2014
Remember those New Year Resolutions you jotted down on paper…..
……………….last year, the year before that, back in 2010 ? Time flies doesn’t it?
Maybe you will find time to pause, take stock, re-group, consider your life path, where you’ve been, where you’re going?
Yet life pushes on like a river gently making its way to the ocean, yet who notices it passing by?
What’s remarkable about the human condition is our potential. We are always faced with the option, remain as you are, or become more.
In the West we have a tendency to ‘think’ or even ‘believe’ that thinking is the highest form of consciousness. (‘I think therefore I am! ‘ – some even say this oft quoted phrase has more recently evolved into: ‘I shop therefore I am!’)
In general we recognise three states of consciousness; Wakefulness (and thinking), Dreaming and Sleeping.
Yet in other cultures research and exploration led to the discovery and realisation of a subtle 4th state of consciousness, beyond sleeping, waking or dreaming, namely a state of ‘thoughtless awareness’.
Remarkably this state is where the mental engine is ‘parked’ momentarily and ‘rested’.
Yet we remain fully aware in a state of ‘thoughtless awareness’, this of course is true meditation!
It is out of this state that the benefits of ‘meditation’ cascade into our life.
Although the original goal of Yoga and Meditation is spiritual growth, important therapeutic side effects on physical and mental health have attracted medical research across the world. The state of thoughtless awareness experienced in Sahaja Yoga has thus been shown to elicit important beneficial changes in the body and the brain and has therapeutic effects on a wide range of disease processes.
So whatever you decide for 2014 and beyond – remember you are always welcome to join us and ……. Learn to meditate?
However, it is a DIY (Do it Yourself) experience. No one can do it for you. You have to have the desire and motivation to actually give yourself a little time and be patient with yourself.
So there it is – on Thursday, the 9th of January 2014 we begin a brand-new four week course (free, as usual), beneficial for beginners & regulars alike.
Topics to be covered in this intensive course shall include:
· Experiencing Yoga Spontaneously
· How to meditate and balance yourself
· Learn more about chakras and cleansing techniques
· Learn how to give self-realisation
This will be followed by another beginner’s course starting from the 6th of February 2014; and a final one starting from March 6th.
The sessions will be conducted every Thursday from 7:30 pm to 9:00 pm (our usual timings).
Where: Ealing Town Hall, New Broadway, Ealing, London, W5 2BY
All you have to do is turn up on the day, and make yourself comfortable.
