Meditation Course Info Session: Free

Attend this FREE workshop to learn about what happens in a Meditation Retreat.

Yoga Masters talk about and often recommend meditation retreats for all practitioners. It is an opportunity for modern humans to leave the busy world with its distractions, technology, news, and chaos of the mind behind to regroup at a fundamental human level. To be able to calm the mind, recharge the cells, and expand the awareness of our conscious being may sound appealing, but what goes on at a retreat?

Attend this informational session on background story of the 10-day retreat that Yoga for Life is leading in January. How do yogis prepare for this personal and internal adventures? What do they eat? How long do they meditate each day? How do they know that right changes are occurring? Most importantly, how do they return to normal society and life?

These and many more questions will be answered by Raj Patra at Yoga for Life. This is a free event and open to all.

  • Practices specific to last five limbs of Raja Yoga: Pranayamas (kriyas of breath), Pratyahara (withdrawal of senses), Dharana (single-pointed focus), Dhyana (returning attention to the source of attention), and Samadhi (the various stages and processes of self-realization through Upayas).

  • Advanced techniques of Pranayam and custom sequence to cleanse Nadis (energetic channels) and remove of Granthis (energetic blocks)

  • Advanced techniques of Bandhas and custom sequence to awaken subtle energy channels and centers of your body

  • Cultivation of single-pointed focus internally, using kriyas of the second and third Mayakoshas (shells of human awareness), which includes energetic shell (bandhas and pranayams), and psychic-emotional shell (chakra and rasa)

  • Methods of invoking symbols and colors of all major and some minor chakra

  • Techniques of Kundalini awakening, and understanding of six layers of liberation

  • Techniques for removing worries, tension, and stress in a very short period of time through persistent practice; motivations/patterns for successful long-term personal practice

  • Concepts and controls of union, death, rebirth, relationships

  • Safe practices and usage of Neti pot, Basti (enema), guided fasting, and observances of silence

Mala Making Workshop
Aug
18
12:00 PM12:00

Mala Making Workshop

Elevate your meditation practice while looking good

You are invited to a very unique workshop that intersects meditation, spirituality, and handicrafts, as practiced in Nepal and India for millennia.

Mala is made from any variety of wood, stone, glass, bones, crystal, or semiprecious gem beads, 108 of which are skillfully woven together interlaced with intricate knots. In the end, a "Guru" bead unites the two ends of a linear string into a loop of infinite symbolism. In practices of mindfulness, such a mala becomes a tool to focus our mind by either chanting a Mantra, or reinforcing breath, or allowing the mind to find an anchor when it tends to wander away.

Whether you want a Mala for beautification, decorative purposes, or for your personal practice, this workshop will teach you all the techniques, tricks, and sliding knots to compete with any professional Malas of the highest quality at a fraction of the cost.

WHAT YOU NEED TO BRING TO THE WORKSHOP

a. Tweezers

b. While the workshop will provide basic beads to learn techniques, you are welcome to buy and bring 108 beads of your choice (plus a few extra, just in case)

c. String of any color you choose for weaving the beads, about 5 feet (preferably nylon). the string must pass through the holes in the beads

d. Guru bead (just ask the shop for it!)

You can buy these easily at any local stone, or bead shop. Every stone has different healing and energetic property. Ask the store to share their expertise with you. You'll learn in very personal and fun way!

Sunday, August 18, Noon to 2 PM, Yoga for Life, 714 N Fremont Street

Investment: $35 for YFL-members, $40 for all
