CONNECT TO THE SOURCE
The Sahaj Samadhi® Meditation Workshop trains your conscious mind to experience the silent depths of your own nature.
In Sanskrit, Sahaj means effortless. Samadhi is mediation — a natural state beyond waking, sleeping, and dreaming that is an unlimited reservoir of energy, intelligence, and creative power and a place of infinite peace and tranquility.
The practice of Sahaj Samadhi® Meditation brings these qualities of increased energy, clarity, joy, and deep inner peace into our daily experience.
How is it different from Mindfulness, Concentration, or Guided Meditation?
Unlike guided meditation, Sahaj Samadhi® does not require accessories nor any guidance once learned. And, generally, it takes you to a much quiet and deeper place as well.
Sahaj Samadhi® means “effortless meditation”. It does not require controlling the mind like concentration meditations, nor does it require vigilant observation of thoughts and emotion like mindfulness meditation. Thus, it has been found to be easier and quicker to learn than mindfulness or concentration, which require more mental effort and take a longer time to master.
During our Chakra Immersion Workshop, you will deep dive into each of the seven major chakras to understand their physical, mental, emotional, energetic, and spiritual meanings. By the end of the immersion you will not only feel connected to your energy centers but know which chakras are already strong in your being and which ones need love and attention. You will be amazed how much you learn about yourself through the learning of the chakras!
