What we're about
Welcome to join our Sahaja Yoga meditation groups! On Mondays at 6 p.m., we have a group in Finnish, on Tuesdays at 6 p.m. in English, on Thursdays at 6 p.m. in Russian and on Fridays at 6 p.m. in Spanish. All the groups are free of charge and you can just show up.
The groups consist of people of different ages and nationalities who have been meditating different periods of time. Newcomers are welcome at any time. Our meetings take place at the Kamppi Sahaja Yoga center located at Salomonkatu 19 (inner courtyard). The entrance to the courtyard is on the right side of the Indian restaurant. Inside the courtyard, go straight forward and turn to the left at the first crossing. The Kamppi Sahaja Yoga center is located at the far end of the courtyard.

Meditation means mental silence or thoughtless awareness. You are present here and now, but your mind is not bombarded by thoughts from the past or the future. In this state, you feel peace and joy, which are the essential elements of the present moment. With regular practice of meditation, it is possible to establish this state within us.
The groups are lead by volunteers who are experienced and can offer guidance to get you started. We give a short introduction to the meditation and after that we do several different meditation exercises. At the end of the meetings, we have a cup of tea and there is time for questions. We also give tips on how to meditate at home.
