What we're about

Imagine yourself as a capable, empowered, successful and happy soul. Imagine being aware of each thought and reaction that comes to mind - and then ruling it. Some might balk at being so ‘in control' of themselves. But you truly are an independent soul, who can choose how to live.

With Raja Yoga meditation you can remove the old patterns of influence and recreate yourself to be how you want to be. That is the power of Raja Yoga. This ancient meditation practice harnesses your natural powers and trains your mind to be your friend. You are not your mind; you are not your body. You have a mind and you have a body. These ‘tools' sometimes work well and at other times may need calm and exercise to get back to a healthy path.

When we sit quietly, cancelling all mindsets, and allow ourselves to know the deep peace of the soul, miraculous changes can take place. People will understand you clearly, new doors will open, friends will call and that stiff neck will relax!

Raja Yoga teaches us to step back and observe life, take a calm breath, cool our reactions, and step forward in the way we choose - independent of others urging us to think or act as they wish.

Raja Yoga sets you free. Raja Yoga releases the power to respond with love.

UNINFLUENCED BY NEGATIVITY

Glen oaks Public Library

How do I cope with negativity, when it seems like it’s all around me? If I step back and see things from a different perspective, I can remain my own master. Then negativity will flow past me and not influence me.
