Kundalini Meditation of the Week

Pranayama to Tranquilize the Mind

Buddha was once sitting and his disciples told him, "Lord, our mind is not controlled." And Buddha curled around and got into this mudra. It is called Man Suhaavee Mudra Kriya, the mudra which pleases the mind. It works to tranquilize the mind within the scope of 3 minutes.

To create the mudra, you build a kind of pyramid system with your fingers. Touch the tips of the Saturn (middle) fingers together and touch the tips of the thumbs together. Curl the Mercury (pinkie) and Sun (ring) fingers into the palm. Bend the Jupiter (index) fingers toward the palms so that they touch each other at the middle joint.

Sit in Easy Pose with a straight spine. Bend the elbows, bringing the mudra up to the level of the heart, with the forearms parallel to the ground. The mudra is about four inches from the chest with the extended fingers pointing away from the body. Look at the tip of the nose. Inhale, hold the breath, and mentally repeat a mantra of your choice 11 to 21 times. Then exhale all the air out and mentally repeat the same mantra again 11 to 21 times. Continue for 3 minutes.

Which mantra you choose and how often you repeat it is up to you. You will be guided by your breath capacity: the breath is held in for the same length of time as the breath is held out. Be sure that you are holding the breath without strain. The goal is tranquillity, so relaxed practice is the path.

Full Moon Meditation

Sat 10th December 7.30 - 9.30pm
with Guru Ram Kaur in Hertfordshire

"There was a time when lunar rhythms informed nearly every aspect of daily human existence. But that was before progress snipped the umbilical cord tying humans to nature, casting the species adrift in the void of reason. Perhaps we don't notice that we've lost the moon because we have lost a part of ourselves as well." - R.V. Scheide

On this last Full Moon CommUnity Event for 2011 we will continue to raise our consciousness through Pranayama, Meditation, Celestial Communication and Gong Healing. Our focus will be on personal and planetary healing. There will also be special meditations for the Radiant Body (Courage and Projection), and for removing any kind of block which holds us back from experiencing and expressing in our lives the true and joyful nature of Self.

Investment: £15. Refreshments 9.30pm onwards. Venue: Sohan Jalaiai Centre, St. Albans/Hatfield area, Hertfordshire. Contact Guru Ram Kaur, 01727 827554, info@sohanjalaiai.com.

 

Gemini Full Moon Meditation & Gong Bath

Sat 10th December 7.45 - 9.15pm
with Simon at Alchemy

Gemini is the sign of quick thinking and rapid activity. There is a child-like nature to this young zodiac sign and all too often we are taught to ignore the simple and add layers of conditioning and complication to a situation in order to view things in a grown up way. Yet it is the child in us that often knows better, sees things more purely and intuitively feels the truth of the matter. Out of the mouth of babes and fools... Read more.

Programme: * Brief reading on the Gemini Full Moon (effect of Moon phase) * Pranayama * Kundalini Yoga warm up kriya * Kundalini Yoga meditation (usually 22min) * 30min Gong Bath.

Investment: £13. Venue: Alchemy Centre, Unit 101, Stables Market, Chalk Farm Road, London NW1 8AH, 0207267 6188, info@alchemythecentre.co.uk.
