This month we complete the teachings of Kriya Yoga, and how it applies to meditation, with the practice of Ishvarapranidhana, or self-surrender.
Host: Jennifer Reuter & Brigitte Snyder
*With Special Musical Guest: Paul Izak
To be at peace is to live in harmony with everything and everyone around you. It is total freedom from fear and resistance. But, in order to truly be at peace you have to find peace within. You may often find your outer world gets chaotic and feels out of balance. You may be trying to change your external circumstances to find peace, but find that nothing ever lasts long term. You will never find peace externally, if you are lacking it internally.
Meditation is a tool used to cultivate inner peace.
It is a way to practice focusing on the present. It’s a practice of acknowledging any regrets you may have had about the past or worries you may have about the future, accepting them without judgement and gently letting them go.
Sometimes in our busy lives we struggle to find the time or the “right place” to relax and sink deeply into our meditation. Group meditation can be extremely powerful in this case. Meditating as a group strengthens the mana of the practice. We support each other and remember that it is OK to “fall off” our practice, because we can always start again together.
Meditation For Peace is a monthly gathering created for you to work on cultivating your own inner peace. It is a place suitable for anyone, whether you are just starting out, have an intermittent practice or practice daily.
