Dr. Hussain who is the CEO and the Clinical Director for SACCHS (South-Asian Canadians Health & Social Services) reached out directly to our SYMN team to invite us to an event he was hosting in Brampton on Fri, June 28th, 2024.

We were glad to hear that our 100 Seeds of Joy wellness workshops have such a good reputation that reached further the Halton/Niagara/Hamilton borders whithin which our team of volunteers usually activate.

On the same Friday, our team had been also an active contributer to the SummerFest in Burlington, offering outdoors sahaja yoga meditation workshops to everyone interested. Check our Article about it:

Our SYMN wellness workshop was Well Apreciated by SACHSS Doctors, Nurses and Families

As always, our volunteer instructors from Sahaja Yoga Meditation Network (SYMN) are providing free of charge wellness (mental, spiritual , physical and emotional) workshops that come from a place of genuine love and care for people.

Giving is receiving! We also strongly feel such a strong supply of energy coming from within when we are cultivating joy in various communities, from Halton for anywhere else where we are called to go!

We would like to share with you the following verses from Rabindranath Tagore that are ‘all about us’ :-).

This quote vividly describes the blend of pure Love and Joy that we envisioned sharing when we launched the 100 Seeds of Joy community initiative in 2023.

Quotes from Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi – the founder of Sahaja Yoga Meditation

‘I want to be a real grandmother of very grand children, that’s a special privilege and real promotion and maturity.’ 

Now how do we mature? Many ask me this question. We mature by Meditation..”

Ascent is when you really rise above; not only that you rise but you make others rise.”

The Joy of Meeting beautiful people everywhere

We received the invitation during the free weekly Sahaja Yoga Meditation class we offer in Burlington. That means that on Wednesday night we received the call from Dr. Hussain to come on Friday evening to the SACHSS Healthy Living program.

Therefore, after a day of work in the office, Ioana and Shivangna joined the SYMN team in Burlington for the Summerfest 2024. We participated right away in the first earth circle meditation around 4pm, then, in less that 40 min we had to take the highway to get to the next city that required ‘100 seeds of joy‘ for the day :-).

It was also a great pleasure to listen to the other special guest, Dr. Kumar, who presented before us, talking about the importance of nutrition.

After our Sahaja Yoga Meditation presentation and meditation, we were approached by various participants to the event, expressing their positive impressions and asking questions, even about an eventual further collaboration as they are also actively involved in their respective communities across the GTA.

We met many other doctors and nurses, as well their lovely families. Some of them knew about the founder of Sahaja Yoga Meditation – Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi, yet nobody before had tried the self-realization steps that we shared with them that evening. We are looking forward to meet again and collaborate on future events across Ontario with these wonderful people.

    I feel more and more doctors should be open to and endorse the practice of Sahaja Yoga Meditation just as our dear Dr Hussein has shown by inviting us to speak to the South Asian community. It goes hand in hand with the overall practice of wellbeing. Incorporating this meditation in day to day life can truly heal the mind, body, emotions and as a bonus increase spiritual intelligence too. Our dynamite team was spontaneous and despite the last minute invitation with events that were already planned for that same evening, they made it a point to accept the invite because it makes a huge difference and is important to raise awareness about the importance of meditation.

    We are so proud of Dr. Maher Hussain and the team for approaching SYMN team to deliver a valuable meditation session for the community. Without truly connecting ourselves with our inner power and knowledge, we are constantly in doubts and confused. We as a team, are eager to spread this light to many more people in the community for their wellbeing.

    The dedicated team is doing great job in extending hands of love and compassion to humanity at large by bridging the the work of divine to experience of joy and peace within. Every human on earth have their rights to receive this unknown realm through meditation. The unique key and only way to rise higher in order to attain the silence and peace within. That’s is what is now required in this unrest exploding world. God bless!
