Introduction to Sahaja Yoga Meditation

Free

with Jerry & Archana Mayfield, Gray-New Gloucester Adult & Community Education

Calendar Current session started Jan 4, 2021 at 7 pm

Sahaja Yoga is a unique method of meditation developed by H.H. Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi (1923-2011). With this practice one develops self-mastery through self-realization (kundalini awakening), which integrates our mental, emotional, physical and spiritual being.

In this class we will explore techniques for clearing the subtle energy centers (chakras) using the natural elements and affirmations that will deepen the meditative experience.

Sahaja Yoga does not require physical exercise and no previous experience is necessary. This class is offered free. With more than 20 years experience each, instructors Jerry and Archana Mayfield voluntarily share Sahaja Yoga.
