Concentration: The Secret of Success

Swami Kriyananda has said, "Concentration is the secret of success in every undertaking. Without concentration, energy, inspiration, purpose- all become scattered."

Yoga teaches that developing concentration is a crucial initial step to tap into a limitless reservoir of energy always available within.
What Paramhansa Yogananda called the same "power that controls all forces of nature," can make the difference between experiencing inner-outer success- or feeling hypnotized by life's problems and made to feel weaker by them. When facing challenges, large or small, developing inner focus can markedly give us traction towards inner growth to turn "stumbling blocks into stepping stones," rather than perpetually feeling like we're "spinning our wheels."

In this meeting we will explore the power of meditation to bring focus to solutions we may not have even considered and, with non-dogmatic support, practice scientifically proven yogic techniques that can allow one to face life with the courage, calm, and even radiant joy.smile
