Most recent session.

We will experience the awakening of a divine mothering energy within us that gently takes us into a state of silence.

"Meditation is such a soothing thing, such a beautiful way of connection with the Divine, that all your problems get solved in that meditative mood." Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi, founder of Sahaja Yoga

Learn how to calm your attention, reduce your thoughts, and increase your enjoyment of inner silence.

"Like a wheel which is moving, if your attention is on the wheel, on the periphery, then your mind is all the time moving. But if you jump on the axis of the wheel, it is silent." Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi, founder of Sahaja Yoga


Our attention can move into the past, the future, or be stable, quiet, and settled in the present. In a state of balance we are able to surmount inner and outer obstacles to becoming our true selves.

"The Spirit will shine on an attention which is steady. Steady it. By balancing you bring a steadiness to it. Balance your thoughts, balance your eyes, balance your desires.." Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi, founder of Sahaja Yoga





Our attention can move into the past or the future, making it a challenge to meditate. We will learn about the three energy channels, and how to balance them so that we can be in the present, and on the path to our spiritual ascent.

"You are an instrument most beautifully made, absolutely so beautifully made that once you discover it, you will be amazed as to what you are." Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi, founder of Sahaja Yoga

We discuss the innate qualities of the subtle energy centers (chakras) within us. We will learn how we can imbibe these qualities in our daily lives through Sahaja Yoga meditation.

"The first thing should be to watch yourself, that you are not reacting but you are experiencing and enjoying the silence, the subtleties, the beauty, the glory of your being." Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi, founder of Sahaja Yoga

 

 

In Sahaja Yoga we use the natural elements of water, earth, fire, ether, and air to deepen our meditation. The foot soaking technique helps us clear our subtle system and increases our enjoyment of the meditation.

"Only in meditation you are in the present and you grow in your spirituality." Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi, founder of Sahaja Yoga

 

We will steady our attention and learn to identify and clear out the imbalances affecting our subtle being. Gradually, we'll go deeper into our own subtlety, silence, and self-knowledge.

"Your hands start feeling the cool breeze. They start feeling the chakras of yourself and chakras of other people. With your hands you can raise the Kundalini, with your hands you can give realization. These hands become powerful things." Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi, founder of Sahaja Yoga

 

 

We will demonstrate the cooling effect of ice to steady our attention and make us less reactive.

"All this temper becomes so cool and so beautiful. It’s very surprising. A very dynamic person becomes extremely compassionate." Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi, founder of Sahaja Yoga

When our left channel clears out, we can feel how much we are loved by the Divine.

"Freedom must have wisdom behind it. So both the sides, the movements on both the sides, are wrong. So what is all right? In the center. Is not to get conditioned by anything and not to be ego-oriented." Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi, founder of Sahaja Yoga

This will be an interactive workshop in smaller virtual rooms with experienced Sahaja Yoga practitioners. You'll learn techniques to clear your subtle system and go deeper into meditation. This interactive workshop is only available on the Zoom platform.

SAFETY NOTE: We will use a candle to clear our left channel of imbalances. As a safety precaution, do not do this treatment if you are wearing loose clothes or near anything that might catch fire. Take great care. You can sit on a chair or on the floor.

WHAT TO BRING: Before the start of this session, please have these items available:
- A small candle in a holder or secured to a plate
- Matches or a lighter

We become our own gurus through the daily practice of Sahaja Yoga. We stop arguing with ourselves. We accept and follow our own inner guidance. We leave behind all extreme behavior, whether it’s over-indulgence or over-strictness.

"You have to be your own guru means you have to guide yourself. You have to treat yourself as your disciple and you have to trim yourself." Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi, founder of Sahaja Yoga



We will focus on the first energy center, the Mooladhara Chakra. In Sanskrit, "Mooladhara" means support of the root. This chakra is the base of the subtle system. Its innate qualities are purity, innocence, joy, and wisdom.

"This innocence never gets destroyed because it is eternal, but it may happen that it will get covered with some clouds by our mistakes that we commit. But once you get your Realization, your innocence is re-established, manifests, and you become innocent." Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi, founder of Sahaja Yoga

Swadhishthana, the second chakra, is the center of creativity, pure knowledge, pure desire and pure attention. The power of pure desire within us guides our spiritual journey. Opening this chakra helps us to let go of our need to control, so we can allow the divine power to work things out.

"Thinking, thinking thinking, planning, planning, planning, planning, running. Ultimately the whole joy has disappeared." Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi, founder of Sahaja Yoga

The third chakra, the Nabhi, is where our seeking for spiritual evolution originates. When this chakra clears, we experience our own divine qualities of satisfaction, generosity and peace.

"There can be no peace in the world until there is peace within." Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi, founder of Sahaja Yoga

Let’s collectively open our Heart Chakra so we can feel our innate qualities of love, compassion, security and fearlessness.

"You become the source of joy, not that you only receive the joy but you become the source of joy, the source of bliss and the source of peace. Wherever such a person goes, it just soothes." Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi, founder of Sahaja Yoga

We will put our attention on the Vishuddhi Chakra to strengthen our sense of self-respect and respect for others. The power of this chakra also helps us to be a detached witness of the drama of life.

"The detachment takes place because you become one with the Spirit which is not attached, which gives you that light, that detachment from where you can see the whole thing just as a drama going on." Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi, founder of Sahaja Yoga

 

 

To open the Agnya Chakra, let’s learn to forgive. This clears the subtle pathway to be connected to the all-pervading power of the Divine.

"When you forgive a person, what do you do? You accept the situation, to begin with, and secondly you forgive what you think has been done wrong to you. But because nothing can be done wrong to your Spirit, you just forgive because you are the Spirit." Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi, founder of Sahaja Yoga

Clearing, Balancing and Meditation Workshop

This will be an interactive workshop in smaller virtual rooms with experienced Sahaja Yoga practitioners. You'll learn techniques to clear your subtle system and go deeper into meditation. This interactive workshop is only available on the Zoom platform.

 

 

At Sahasrara we can let go of all our worries, opinions, and frustrations. We can offer them to the silence above the top of the head. This is where our attention joins the universal, Divine attention.

"Sahaja Yoga is like building first the pinnacle of the building, and then the foundation. Opening your Sahasrara was the first thing that was achieved. And then in the light of Sahasrara you have to watch yourself and see for yourself." Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi, founder of Sahaja Yoga

 

 

We enhance the experience of meditation by going deeper into the silence within us. Discover the power of a mantra, or prayer in Sanskrit, to clear our chakras and strengthen the state of meditation.

"Meditation is the only way you can enrich yourself with the beauty of reality. There's no other way. I cannot find any other way but meditation by which you rise into the realm of divinity." Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi, founder of Sahaja Yoga

This is a spiritual meditation. We awaken the inner energy (Kundalini) that gently brings positive change within us – making us more balanced, peaceful, and joyous. As you participate in these daily classes you will notice increasing moments of clear perception, unclouded by unnecessary thoughts.

The 21-Day course is the beginning of an ongoing journey with an online community of Sahaja Yoga meditation practitioners. Classes are offered throughout the year for those who would like to go deeper and continue their spiritual growth.

Sahaja Yoga

Founded in 1970 by Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi, Sahaja Yoga is a worldwide spiritual meditation practice.

The meditation Shri Mataji has taught us enables people who are seekers of truth to achieve their Self Realization. Self Realization is the key to thoughtless awareness, also known as mental silence, and is the basis of good health and well-being. Sahaja Yoga meditation provides this experience.

Sahaja Yoga is volunteer-run, always free, and practiced in more than 100 countries.

Testimonials

Diana, Dallas, TX
Dental Hygienist

“Through thoughtless awareness, I have started getting solutions to many problems within myself. It seems as if someone within you is telling you the solution in a very inspiring way. This is a real miracle, as of now I don’t have to look for answers/approval from others. Grateful to all the instructors and mentors for all their support, dedication, and love!”


Eric, New York, NY
Project Manager

“This course changed my life! I stopped reacting to many things happening at work, and in my personal life… The clearing techniques help me so much to feel calm and peaceful. I learned so much about myself. My intuition has improved and it feels like I have charge of my life now. Don’t know how I was living without it!”
