Meditation at the World Yoga CenterMeditation page- top

Meditation lies at the core of yoga  and supports us to create a meaningful life. Seen as our natural birthright, meditation reduces suffering  and is a significant means to inner freedom and well-being. All our hatha yoga classes and programs include this transformative practice.

Monthy Satsang

Meditation gathering in Rudrani’s home: Thursday, November 19,  7-9:30pm

Theme: ‘Meeting in The Place of Essence

Relating essence to essence is natural to all people. It is when we feel the heart of someone hidden behind their role, or know someone is thinking of us, or feel someone present who is far away or who has even left this world. Relationships based on recognition of each others essence have an absolute basis. The sages of yoga say that love without this is conditional, relative, egoic, a kind of business. In the greater reciprocity of an intimate relationship we are pressed even more to work on our most entrenched personality patterns in the light of this mutual recognition. The Tantric perspective offers us an understanding that meeting in the place of essence is a way to wake each other up! Come explore–

The group chose this theme in our last Satsang. Come join us and enjoy our shared learning as we all continue to grow together. Satsang is an evening of high energy with Rudrani, the WYC Director. This monthly program includes group meditation, chanting, yoga philosophy, spiritual teachings and an exploration of the theme of the month. All are welcome. No prior experience needed.

Thank you for hosting another wonderful evening. So rich – and FULL. It feels as if I am coming home. I always leave overflowing…

Meditation page middleSatsang is wonderful – deep and strong. Meditating in that space, nestled on the corner of the 26th floor, overlooking our beloved City, is always so profound and deep. Certainly the long history of transformation energy in that very place makes it easier for all of us to glide with abandon into a meditation that feels like being held. I was struck by how that word comes up more than once during sharing. It is what keeps me coming back…. (WYC student)
