The volunteer instructors from Halton Sahaja Yoga Meditation team had offered 24 workshops in 4 days to hundreds of students, joined by their teachers and parents in the heart of the Halton Forest. They meditated and experienced being connecte’ to it.

It was a great experience for us the volunteers: Paula, Kathleen,Olga, Shilpa and Ioana; We had rainy days and sunny days but the forest was always the same for us: enchanted during our meditations!

As always we are sharing our experiences via photos and fresh handwritten feedback we’ve been able to collect during this ‘teaching and experiencing sahaja yoga meditationmarathon :-).

We hope that this article speaks to one’s heart and mind, given a hint about the positive impact our sessions had. That makes us want to BE volunteers and take it as a blessing!

We have Proof!! Students do appreciate “Experiencing Being in Nature with Sahaja Yoga Meditation” in the Halton Conservation areas and we all say: “May the Force be with You!”

    Such a rewarding exchange, thanking the forest for freeing our thoughts and enjoying our oneness. The children opened their hearts and poured pure living experiences onto these pages.

    The start of something transformative happened among the trees…it was blissful. It was the yoga connection in pure thoughtless awareness.

    I am so grateful. So moved by the honesty of the children. The stillness stirred within all of us and is still permeating our hearts. It was a truly an enchanting experience together.

    So wonderful to see all the impressions here and it was a privilege to meet you all. You are already capable of doing great things for your selves and society. May the force be with all of you!

    Tiny brains yet with overwheming thought and expression… If that’s the joy of expression of an experience…. Even the biggys at times falters to frame up such candid expression . So truthful and so innocent..loved it.
