Event description

Description

Kriya Yoga is a simple and practical technique of deep meditation and Self-Realization. It gives immediate and continuing positive results for the simultaneous development of the body, mind, intelligence and soul.


Deep meditation relieves stress, promotes centeredness and gives a sense of well being and compassion. Kriya Yoga is non-sectarian and can be practiced by people of all religions.


Kriya Yoga approaches the study of the Self with a sense of reflection and introspection so that the spiritual traveler may understand the conditions of his / her mind. The ever-changing mind is the biggest barrier to calmness and self-realization.


ABOUT KRIYA YOGA INSTRUCTION

One must receive training into the authentic Kriya Yoga directly from Paramahamsa Prajnanananda or one of the authorized yogacharyas. There are no correspondence courses or lessons available through the Kriya Yoga International organizations of this lineage of teachings.


People who wish to attend are encouraged to "prepare their field" by becoming familiar with the teachings of Paramahamsa Hariharananda and Paramahamsa Prajnanananda. A good place to start is to check out the many free resources available at www.kriya.org.

HELPFUL INFORMATION ABOUT THE WORKSHOP:

Instruction is usually given on a Saturday morning of a weekend program, continuing on to early afternoon. Techniques are taught later in the afternoon, followed by guided meditation. The workshop continues all day Sunday with follow up meditations and time to review the techniques and ask questions. Please keep the entire weekend free for this process in order to absorb the techniques and get the help of the teacher to ensure proper practice of Kriya Yoga meditation.


Offerings: The seeker offers three symbolic gifts to the instructor as offerings to God and the masters. The three offerings are: five fruits representing the fruits gained from activities throughout life; five flowers representing the five senses; and a financial donation of $180. The three offerings represent the causal, astral, and gross bodies respectively. Please bring these to the workshop.


Logistics: The seeker is asked to fill out a form before taking instruction and also is requested not to divulge the technique to others in order to maintain the purity of the teachings. Please arrive promptly to allow time to fill out the form before the workshop begins.


You may want to bring a notebook and pen to take notes on the techniques.


Avoid a big breakfast during the workshop. Wear loose, comfortable, modest clothing.

Follow-up: The new student is asked to attend at least three follow-up meditation sessions with the instructor (these are included during the weekend program). Weekly guided group meditations are held at centers worldwide & will begin in LR following the workshop
