Meditation & Inner Contentment

"At the center of life's storms I stand serene."- Swami Kriyananda

 

Feeling an awakened "inner smile" of contentment in the midst all activities, is called by the ancient Indian text the Mahabharata "the highest heaven." Yoga teaches that we can consistently experience ease of mind and even radiant happiness right now- not in a postponed future or fantasy. We may sense this was true for advanced yogis of old, but wonder: how in our restless age, does one begin to attain this state, let alone sustain it over time?

In this meeting, we will explore how yogic meditation, an "attitude of gratitude," and re-directting our energy can help us begin to open the
door to the freedom and joy of inner contentment. In this way, we can be receptive, grow, and thrive through the rhythms and changes in our lives. Using the scientifically proven techniques of the great yoga master Paramhansa Yogananda, we will practice methods that lead to a deep sense of well being.smile

 

All spiritual affiliations of non are welcome! No experience is required!

This meetup is part of a series of ongoing weekly meditation group meetings at this location.

We are a non-profit group but donations are always welcome! (suggested donation of 5-10 dollars but nobody turned away for lack of funds)

If you would like to volunteer in any way, i.e: bringing snacks, help set of clean up, that would be wonderful! Please contact Paul any time.
