Many people find meditation difficult and frustrating when they first begin practicing, struggling with the ceaseless activity of the mind and restlessness of the body. Often, people give-up on meditation before they can reap its incredible benefits.
Isha Kriya is learned through free, 1-hour guided sessions--it is a powerful inner process to align your mind, body, and inner-energies to naturally arrive at a meditative state.Once you are meditative for even a few minutes on a daily basis, your perception of yourself and the world around becomes much deeper and richer.
12-18 minutes of Isha Kriya practice daily reduces stress, anxiety and depression; increases health, energy and vitality; enhances mental focus and clarity and establishes a sense of peace and deep inner balance.
"Meditation is a simple process that gives you a little distance from your own mind and your own body," explains realized yogi, Sadhguru, who devised Isha Kriya. "You have probably heard of the word 'Buddha.' 'Bu' means 'buddhi,' or the intellect. 'Dha' means 'dada,' or one who is above. One who is above his intellect is a Buddha. A Buddha has clear perception of the nature of his mind...Once you are in your intellect, stress, anxiety and tension are very normal; Once there is a distance from your physical body and your mental structure, that is the end of suffering."
Isha Kriya is a gentle, seated practice. No previous yoga or meditation experience is necessary. Renowned for his powerful programs and humanitarian initiatives, Isha founder, Sadhguru, has been hosted to speak and offer meditations at numerous global leadership forums, businesses and universities, including the United Nations, the World Economic Forum, the British House of Lords, TED, MIT, and the World Peace Congress.
