8 weeks Meditation Course

A next 8 – weeks – meditation – course is starting soon. Monday 10th of May 2021, 5pm – 6pm, for eight consecutive weeks. The Topic of the course is on the Chakras.

The 7 main Chakra

Chakra means ‘wheel’. Chakras are energy vortices, or intersections where two or more nadis (sanskrit word) meet. Everyplace the 72,000 nadis of the astral body intersect, there is a chakra. There are an uncounted number of chakras in the body.

The chakras are the mechanisms by which the prana (lifeforce) is able to permeate the physical body from the astral body, and basically then, it is the prana that keeps the physical body alive.

Within the astral body are 7 main chakras associated with kundalini awakening. They are located within the astral body in locations that correspond with the spine in the physical body, and at the junctions where the ida and pingala, and various other nadis, meet.

These main chakras are called:

  1. Muladhara – located near the base of the spine in the perineal space for men, at the back and top of the cervix for women; sacral plexus
  2. Swadhishthana – located at the level of the uro-genital systems; prostatic plexus
  3. Manipura – located at the area of the navel; solar plexus
  4. Anahata – located at the level of the heart; cardiac plexus
  5. Vishuddha – located in the throat region near the thyroid and adam’s apple; laryngeal plexus
  6. Ajna – located in the space between the eyebrows; cavernous plexus
  7. Sahasrara – located at the top of the head; pineal gland

In the first week of the course, we cover the basics and overall meaning of the Chakra. Then every week we cover, talk and meditate on one Chakra from 1 to 7. So if, you miss a week, each week is it’s own lesson.

Cost & Registration:

The upfront payment for the whole 8 weeks is $110.-, or you can pay each week $15.-.

If you have yoga class pass, you can use it of the meditation course as well.

The course is taking place at our home in Silkstone, and is limited to six participants. You need to book for the whole course, or for each week, if space is available.

The topic of the weekend retreat is based on the five points of Yoga, as taught by Swami Vishnu-Devananda:

  • 1) Proper Exercise (Asana) Proper exercise should be pleasant to the practitioner while beneficial to the body, mind and spiritual life.
  • 2) Proper Breathing (Pranayama) Proper breathing should be deep, slow and rhythmical. This increases vitality and mental clarity.
  • 3)Proper Relaxation (Savasana) By relaxing deeply all the muscles the Yogi can thoroughly rejuvenate his/her nervous system and attain a deep sense of inner peace.
  • 4)Proper Diet (Vegetarian) A lacto-vegetarian diet. This is an integral part of the Yogic lifestyle.
  • 5) Positive Thinking and Meditation(Dhyana) Here is the most important point of all, we become what we think. A positive outlook on life can be developed by learning and practicing the teachings of the philosophy of Vedanta. The mind will be brought under perfect control by regular practice of meditation.

During the weekend we practice these five points of yoga.

The retreat is suitable for beginners to learn about the basics of yoga and for more advanced yoga students to deepen their practice.
