Learn to Meditate - The Path of Kriya Yoga, Level 1
Starts on Sunday, 10 March, 11:15 am - 2:30 pm

Paramhansa Yogananda wrote, “Meditation is the highest form of activity a person can perform.” It is one of the most natural and rewarding of all human activities. It gives a direct, intuitive experience of higher consciousness, and is the cornerstone of deep spirituality. It also brings balance, rest, and growing inner peace.

This course is open to anyone who wishes to learn to meditate, regardless of religious or spiritual background. Whether or not you are new to meditation, these lessons can help you establish and develop a deep, consistent practice and help awaken within the peace, joy, and divine love that are a part of your true nature. It’s step one out of four on the Path of Kriya Yoga but can be done also as a standalone course.

Choosing to do basic course turned out to be one of the best decisions of my life. It helped me understand basics of meditation like proper posture, different ways of sitting and how to breathe correctly. It also introduced me to Superconscious Living Exercises with which I could feel instant upliftment of energy. This course helped me set up a daily meditation routine and view life from a different lens. I started feeling calmer, happier, special and inspired inside. The inner smile and gratitude stay longer and keep me strong even in challenging times. This course is like enrolling oneself in school of life and is for everyone.
