We had the opportunity to introduce sahaja yoga meditation and its benefits to “Barrie and Community Family Health Team” (mental therapists,etc) from Canadian Mental Health Association, Simcoe County Branch – Gambling, Substance Use & Mental Health Services. Besides the practical approach in experiencing collectively the “Inner Peace” meditation and its immediate positive effects such as relaxation and calmness, we were able to project few videos reporting briefly the medical studies applied to sahaja yoga meditation; our team of volunteer instructors had also the great pleasure of discussing and inter-acting one on one with this dedicated group of therapists.
Of course, there is the openly declared intention on both sides for meeting again; we are really very impressed with the fact that often we have participants to our free weekly Barrie Classes that were recommended our form of yoga meditation .. by their therapists! This is the best form of acknowledgment that benefits everyone and we are very grateful for the letter of appreciation received from the manager of the Mental Health program. We are looking forward to any other collaboration in the future!
