I am enrolled in the 21 Stages of Meditation course through Yoga West and… it is AMAZING! I am so in love with meditating and after just the first weekend was all jazzed up about meditating and Kundalini Yoga. After the weekend, I felt SO great that I decided to do challenge myself.
And I want to invite you along with me!
You see, for a couple of years now, I have been uninspired with my meditation practice. I usually have a goal, and I usually get to that goal. And then after that goal has been met, I kind of float around for a while until I find the next thing.
And now I have it!
To do every meditation laid out in the book The 21 Stages of Meditation by Gurucharan Singh Khalsa and Yogi B.
It is a Kundalini Yoga Meditation series that takes you through all of the various stages of the mind you encounter in meditation.
Like all Kundalini Yoga Meditations, these will rewire your brain. These meditations will change, hone and awaken your soul, your dharma and life path. These meditations will help you become all you need to be, and rewire you for joy.
And for some reason, this series of meditations makes me stoked!
Why Join Me?
Meditation in general is known for changing peoples lives. It’s an activity that a small amount every day has huge cumulative effects on a person. Mediation is known to reduce anxiety and depression, create inspiration, increase creativity, reduce stress, reduces aging, improves concentration, and the list goes on.
Kundalini yoga in particular has incredible benefits fast. It is the most effective meditation I have done myself. I’ve done zen buddhist, buddhist, vispassana, guided, theta, shamanic, and a bunch of the new agey meditations you can think of. Each one does it’s own thing very well, and have their time and place. For me, Kundalini yoga is the end all and be all because its a very active meditation practice meant to change your world fast. And it does.
It combines mantra (sounds), mudras (hand positions), pranayam (breath) and often visualization in both the yoga and meditations. This is what makes it so effective.
How It Will Work:
The challenge is a combined at home and in-class experience. This means each week I will teach an in person class that includes the meditation, yoga and/or sharing of experiences in Langford at Spirited Gifts. Each participant is asked to maintain their own daily practice.
Each meditation will be done for 40 days in a row.
But you can join us online too! We will provide a video of the meditation as direction, and specific instructions before each 40 day round. The instructions will include modifications based on your level of meditative experience to make it easy. I will be blogging about my experiences. There will be a facebook group as well to connect with each other doing the meditations.
There are over 21 meditations we will do together, one at a time. If you feel like you want to step in at a later date, I would sign up anyways so you can keep up and join us at any time.
