We provide guidance, free of charge, in a process known as Sahaja Yoga Meditation. We often play selected recordings of Indian music, which we consider to be theraputic. At other times, we may encourage meditation in silence or we may provide some instructions during the meditation process itself.
Public events are normally run with a 'drop-in' style: people arrive and depart without any appointment or preparation. We give brief instructions or explanations and then people try to meditate. They sit comfortably, with their hands open on their lap and eyes closed. When we meet a group for a pre-arranged session, the style is likely to be more formal, with a typical duration of an hour or so. Back...
Most of the music which we play is available for purchase and we do recommend that people take advantage. Music is not a luxury item. Cassettes cost just a few pounds, while CDs are around ten pounds.
