4 week series Yoga Sutras of Patanjali part I with Ma Lochana

If you want to be happy, peaceful and free of suffering you must understand your mind.

The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali are the teachings of Yoga- Yoga as science of the mind and not as physical exercise - that will provide you with answers about mind and consciousness while guiding you step by step toward the goal of peace, happiness and freedom from suffering.

You don’t need any yoga (asana) practice to attend nor belong to any specific religion to benefit from the teachings of the Yoga Sutras.
“Yoga”, as per the Yoga Sutras, is the science of the Mind. Patanjali reminds us that the world we live in is our own projection, our life is our own creation; we can change it within a fraction of a second, by changing your own mind.

During each session we will start with a short meditation to prepare us to receive the knowledge of Yoga Sutras, then we will read and discuss the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali with the intent of understanding the teachings and most importantly to know how to apply them in our day-to-day life.
The Yoga Sutras provides more than mere philosophy, it imparts practical tools toward our goal of peace, joy, bliss and oneness.

The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali paves the non-religious Path toward Freedom from Suffering.

See you Friday April 26, 6.30-8.30pm
for the first session of 4 week series Yoga Sutras part I.

Blessings,
Ma Lochana

Drop your New Year’s resolutions!
State your Sankalpa instead!

What is a Sankalpa?
Sankalpa is a vow, a commitment you make to support your highest truth.
· Have you already ditched your New Year Resolution?
· Have you set this year the same resolution you have set unsuccessfully in past years?
· Have you felt worst after you have set your resolution and then dropped it few weeks or few days after the New Year?
The 3 major difference between New Year Resolution and Sankalpa:
1. New Year Resolution may start with the assumption that what you are is not good enough, while the Sankalpa is based on the premise that you are already whole and perfect and that you were born with everything you need to support your life purpose.
2. The Sankalpa is aligned with your HEART FELT DESIRE, therefore when you discover it, you also see how to fulfilled and what actions to take. New Year Resolution may be set on external expectation of what you should do and should want.
3. New Year Resolution is a wish, a hope that we may become something or be able to do/achieve something. Instead the Sankalpa is something that belongs in the present and you can live it now, in this moment, day by day.
HOW DO I DISCOVER MY SANKALPA? HOW DO I FULFILL MY SANKALPA?
Join me on JANUARY 13 at 9.00am till 10.15pm! I will share with you a little more about Sankalpa for you to have a better understanding of it and then I will guide you through the techniques and practices that will help you to find it, plant it and make it blossom J. Be ready to practice Yoga Nidra! For more info: ma@blissfullyalive.com

Happy New Year

6 Week Meditation with Ma Lochana

Sun Date: Jan 27 2019 - Mar 03 2019 From: 9:00 AM - 9:45 AM
This course is based on Insight Meditation, a non-sectarian practice of meditation. Meditation is a technique that takes you to a higher state of consciousness. In meditation the mind is clear, relaxed, and inwardly focused.
Meditation cannot have any negative side effects, only positive benefits. To name a few:
  • significantly better moods
  • reduced stress and anxiety
  • stronger immune system
  • relief from chronic pain
  • accelerated healing of mind and body diseases
  • healthier and happier relationships
In each session students will receive:
Instructions on how to practice and what tools to use to overcome obstacles/challenges, guided practice meditation, time for open discussion and Q&A.
During each week students will have access to:
Handouts through email and Ma Lochana will be available by email to answer questions about the practice.
By the end of the 6 week course you will have the knowledge, understanding and tools to establish your daily meditation practice.

Anybody of any age, gender, religion, and nationality can practice insight meditation. From novices to “experienced” meditators.

With Meditation we learn to become calm, to observe our inner and outer world, and we gain openness, clarity, and new understanding.
