Mastering the Techniques of Meditation – Part I (Hong-Sau Technique)
The art and science of Kriya Yoga meditation employs physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual methods to bestow an ever-deepening consciousness of infinite, unconditioned Bliss.
Participants in this two-part meditation class will receive step-by-step instruction in two of the essential techniques of the Kriya Yoga path as taught by Paramahansa Yogananda: the Hong-Sau Technique of Concentration and the Aum Technique of Meditation. The class will show how these are integrally related to mastery of the specific technique of Kriya Yoga (taught separately), and will benefit first-time students as well as longtime Kriya practitioners.
Using periods of guided meditation experience, the class will present a comprehensive overview of the essentials for creating a successful personal practice, including: physical techniques of relaxation and asana (right meditation posture), using the breath and life force (prana) in the most effective ways, intensifying the heart's devotion and divine yearning to lead the consciousness into ever deeper states of God-communion.
