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.

Monthly Satsang

Meditation gathering in Rudrani's home: Thursday, Jan 25,  7-9:30pm

Theme: 'Amnesia of the Ego: Letting in Possibility'

According to Yoga scriptures we are constructed with sensory equipment that doesn’t allow us to perceive the underlying energy of which we are made. We only know the objective world through touch, smell, sight, sound, taste, along with cognitive abilities, discernment, discrimination, and technological intelligence. Though this has made us an incredibly inventive species on Planet Earth… (with mixed reviews on our wisdom )… it nonetheless has not made us awake to Reality so we remain asleep to the mystery of our existence. Born into a family system that shapes us into a person we believe ourselves to be, we develop a strong attachment to this transient identity, and by a kind of amnesia the sages call concealment create that our true nature remains unknown. The awakenment process comes with great openings into possibility and this is worth exploring in the new year of 2018 as it lifts off.

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)
