What is meditation? It has been described by many different people in many ways. Everyone has their own personal experience. Nevertheless, the yogic text Shvetashatara Upanishad says, “Those who are devoted to meditation and contemplation see the divine energy hidden in its own qualities. It is the One who rules over all causes from time to the soul.” This is the experience of the yogic sages. When they went deep inside in meditation, they experienced the power within.

An attribute, characteristic, or identity is then created from these words and images. Confusion, projections, arguments and insecurities are caused when we associate qualities such as good/bad, rich/poor, honest/dishonest, this or that with […]
“Keep your focus. Be the person you always want to be.”
Meditation Master Gurumayi Chidvilasananda
Seclude yourself on Friday nights at the sanctuary of Lake Center Yoga from 7:15pm-8:45pm for a mini meditation retreat and reconnect with the person YOU always want to be.

It’s true! Try […]
