How to Meditate Workshop
with Acharya Dharana, 6 Aug 2017

“The soul loves to meditate, for in contact with the Spirit lies its greatest joy. If, then, you experience 
mental resistance during meditation, remember that reluctance to meditate comes from the ego, 
it doesn’t belong to the soul.”  —  Paramhansa Yogananda

Meditation is one of the most natural yet profoundly rewarding of all human activities. Meditation not only reduces stress and improves physical and emotional well-being, it can help you be more focused, productive and calm regardless of outer conditions. This workshop can help you directly experience the divine realities within — the peace, joy and divine love that are your true nature.
During this program you will learn:

  • Why, how, when & how long to meditate
  • How to sit comfortably, even for long meditations
  • Two classic techniques to help still the mind, preparing it for the true state of meditation
  • How they’re combined in the more powerful technique taught by Yogananda
  • The value and practices of prayer & chanting, leading to deeper meditations

Even a short everyday practice of Meditation can bring great benefits to your busy life!

Workshop Fees:  Rs 1200 per person (includes Lunch & Chai)
