Sahaja Yoga Meditation classes are being offered for free in Winnipeg for the 2017 third winter/spring season.
Millions of people worldwide get their enlightenment by learning how to meditate in order to feel inner peace and joy, relieve stress, worries, depression, racing thoughts, anxious feelings, alleviate physical symptoms and more.
The best part of these classes is that there are no hard poses. Attendees simply sit in a chair with their hands open to receive, or on the floor if they prefer. Since this is the pure knowledge that does not come from books, but rather comes from inside, there is no prior experience required.
The sessions are being held on the 2nd floor of the St. Boniface Library in Salle Marie-Lynne Bernard at 100-131 Provencher Blvd. on Fri. Jan. 27 from 1-2 p.m., 2-3 p.m. and from 3-4 p.m., as well as on Wed. Feb. 1 from 4-5 p.m., 5-6 p.m., 6-7 p.m. and from 7 -8 p.m.
There will also be some extra sessions at Dragon Arts Collective, third floor, 91 Albert St. on Tue. Jan. 31 from 2-3 p.m., 3-4 p.m. and from 4-5 p.m.
Drop ins are welcome, or register by texting your confirmation or calling 289-242-2755 and specify which sessions you are likely to attend. No one is “late,” so visitors can pop in at any point during the classes; everyone is “right on time” to receive self-realization, yoga and enlightenment.
It is recommended to attend more than one session consecutively, as no information will be repeated.
A brief chakra chart of the human subtle system and channels will be introduced at the top of each hour. A guided meditation, music, short video clips will be shared to help grow deeper in the knowledge of one’s higher self.
If you feel compelled to connect with your spirit, your higher self, your best self, you may want to experiment with the truth of your being, to connect with mother earth, and to learn the true knowledge and roles of the chakras, or energy centres in your subtle system which takes care of your physical, mental, spiritual health; this energy rises like the sap in the “tree of life” we all have inside.
Before achieving our self-realization, our mind is limited by the ego and super ego as well as unhealthy attachments, conditionings and our thoughts coming from the past or future.
Through a simple guided meditation known as “thoughtless awareness”, we expand our awareness of the present, which creates the space between the thoughts long enough for us to feel and to know that we are connected to everyone and everything.
This awakening can be felt along the central nervous system as “vibrations” and has been described as a cool river or cool breeze in ancient scriptures. We can achieve the true meaning of the word Yoga, which means connection, with no hard poses. We connect to the unlimited, all pervading power of the universe.
The founder of Sahaja Yoga, Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi, who was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize twice, has always passed on this pure knowledge for free.
The Petrovskaya Academy of Arts and Science in St. Petersburg bestowed upon Shri Mataji an Honorary Membership, telling her, “You are even higher than science.” Indeed, Saha means spontaneous, and ja means, born with, and Yoga means union in Sanskrit, an ancient, vibrational language.
In 1994 in New York City, to celebrate her association with Gandhi, September 26 was declared “Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi Day.”
She was welcomed with police escort and parade, and offered self realization and public talks world-wide, including one at the United Nations on world peace, always for free.
“It is your birthright, you are not to pay for it,” she says.
In 1995, her travels took her to Romania, where she was awarded Honorary Doctorate in Cognitive Science by Professor D. Drimer, head of the Ecological University in Bucharest.
In 1996, the Italian government awarded her “personality of the year” for her self realization programs while in residence and subsequent trips.
By 2006 she was awarded Honorary Italian Citizenship for her vast achievements and work for the betterment of humanity.
