FYI: all decorations for this event were created by artists -yogis from this region. Creativity blossoms under the nourishing spell of this practice of wellness: sahaja yoga meditation. Enjoy below great photos and videos from this event, realized by sahaja yogis from Burlington class: Shulin (17 years old!), Amanda and Norma (70 years old!).
We meditated thoroughly along the course of this event with 3 short meditations: the Self-Realization type (conducted through video by the founder of sahaja yoga meditation- Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi), reinforced by Peter and Ioana and by the end of this event we had Sam, one of our youth class’ leaders guiding us to the yoga state again. No wonder everyone in the room had been so enthusiastic about feeling so clearly the cool breeze of vibrations flowing inside-out. Do not miss the DANCE VIDEOS + Chad’s SCIENTIFIC PRESENTATION VIDEOs .
(part 1) Recollection from Stephen (Oakville)
On Saturday, May 24th, 2014 at the Brant Hills Community Centre in Burlington, the restorative power of meditation was presented in a free event to all; entitled, “The Power lies within You – Bridging Science & Spirituality”. With guest lecturer, Chad Danyluck, from the University of Toronto, he demonstrated the science behind the benefits of meditation with regards to one’s self-control, and the ability to manage your actions, feelings and emotions in order to de-stress our lives and to live in the moment. An advice: watch all photos & videos below (they express the beautiful energy of this event).
The event started with an introduction to Kundalini meditation guided by Shri Mataji in a video presentation. Members of the Halton region Sahaja Yoga collective performed chakra healing & energy workshops on guests who wanted to experience the clearing of their chakras and Kundalini energy rising within their own bodies. Everyone in attendance really enjoyed the collectiveness we all shared.
(part 3 – Dance performance) Recollection from Stephen
The afternoon concluded with a very uplifting fusion dance performance by Hema Kukreja that included a particular segment combining Indian classical dance with Irish folk music that was pure joy and very inspiring to the oneness we all share.
Our special guest spoke about her background in Sahaja yoga and what inspired her to become a full-time dance performer. Hema personifies the pure Spirit and clearly demonstrated the benefits of meditation with her powerful performance and heartfelt passion for fusion dance.
It was a wonderful event; everybody enjoyed feeling the vibrations. Also we had such a lively and lovely Q & A with Chad and another yogi doctor that was in the audience, that kindly answered to the many questions received from the audience. Same with Hema, who so sweetly shared with the audience her life choices and her art! We are looking forward to the next “Bridging and Spirituality” program – scheduled for Oakville in June 2014! Stay tuned and/or join us to our weekly classes anywhere in Ontario. Here there is a “Sahaj Family Photo” with yogis/participants from many classes in GTA.
