What we're about

"Today is the blossom time when many have to get the blessings of yoga."

"You cannot know the meaning of your life until you are connected to the Power that created you."

-- Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi, Founder of Sahaja Yoga Meditation

*****

Sahaja Yoga aims to bring meditation into the lives of ordinary people who seek a meaningful spiritual experience in the course of their hectic daily life. The state of meditation is attained through a spontaneous awakening of the Kundalini, a dormant spiritual energy inside every human being. Once awakened, the Kundalini serves as a boundless source of a peaceful and balancing force. "Through this process an inner transformation takes place by which one becomes moral, united, integrated and balanced," states Sahaja Yoga's official website (www.sahajayoga.org (http://www.sahajayoga.org/)).

*****

Sahaja Yoga meditation is originally from India and is taught in over 100 countries.

The meaning of Sahaja is "born within", "spontaneous", "effortless" and "natural". The meaning of the Sanskrit word Yoga is "union". Hence the meaning of the name Sahaja Yoga is essentially one's very own spontaneous union and connection with the Spirit and the all-pervading. It is a technique of meditation which is simple and natural, yet deeply profound.

Classes are always free of charge based on the principle that inner peace is each and every human being's birthright. We are a not for profit group of volunteers established in BC since 1981. Sahaja Yoga was founded by Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi in 1970.

Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi quietly transformed lives. For more than forty years, she travelled internationally, offering free public lectures and the experience of Self-Realization to all. She taught the meditation practice to firmly establish and deepen this inner transformation of human beings.

BAREFOOT MEDITATIVE WALK

Parksville Community Park

This is a weather permitting self-directed event - you will do this on your own - choose your own days and times. Social distancing is extremely easy at this location Here is a simple meditative walking technique: Stroll barefoot on the grass (watch out for the brave little daisies!), with a sense of awe for the strength of the earth that makes things grow again each spring. The earth also has the ability to absorb negative energy from our system, especially if we are barefoot, and supply us with healthy positive energy. As you walk look at the green grass - this will relax your eyes and your whole system. Let’s desire that the wholesome motherly energy of the earth fills us all the way up to the top of our head.

MEDITATION IN THE PARK

Parksville Community Park

We now offer outdoor meditation sessions in the beautiful local park ... but allow only 3 participants per session and observe social distancing. As always, our sessions are free of charge. We will be near the picnic shelter in the grassy area with the big trees - there is usually a lot of empty space. A Canadian flag will be close to the ground to help us find each other. Bring a comfortable lawn chair to sit on. If you are absolutely comfortably to sit on the ground cross-legged for 1 hour you can bring your own cotton mat instead of the chair. Make sure to wear warm enough clothing. Sessions offered: Tuesday June 2, 2020 at 9:30am. Tuesday June 2, 2020 at 11 am. Wednesday June 3, 2020 at 5pm. Wednesday June 3, 2020 at 6:30 pm. Sessions are 50 minutes long and we start on time. Free follow-up sessions will be made available upon request. Please register - these are not drop-in sessions, and you can only register for 1 session. If sessions have to be canceled due to bad weather we will make every effort to offer a make-up a session, most likely a week later. To register, RSVP "yes" or send an email to [masked] with your name, phone number and the details of the session you wish to attend. We will confirm your registration via a phone call.
