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.
Meditation gathering in Rudrani’s home: Thursday, September 11, 7-9:30pm
September SATSANG ‘Traveling Light’
How will you know the difficulties of being human
if you’re always flying off
to blue perfection?
Where will you plant your grief-seeds?
We need ground to scrape and hoe,
not the sky of unspecified desire (Rumi)
Does this Rumi poem contradict the wisdom of traveling light?
How do we alchemize our heart’s pain so that we don’t take it everywhere we go?
How do we travel light and at the same time not leave parts of us behind?
Come join us for Satsang.
To reach our power to live in the fullness of the moment, to engage with all our hearts in the here and now, requires great letting go. TS Eliot once said that the cost of inner peace was everything! Just as we can feel liberated and unencumbered traveling light to new places, the inner journey is similar Come explore together the rigor and the richness of traveling light on the path of awakenmentSatsang 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.

Satsang 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)
