Satsang is a meeting of people searching for Truth - at this satsang the Kriya yoga traditions are followed - all visitors are welcome, we sit (chairs are available) and do some chanting to warm up, then 30 or more minutes meditation, followed by traditional bhajans, and either a reading or teachings if a teacher is visiting - the philosophical ideas are based on the philosophy of Sri Paramhamsa Yogananda, who wrote "Autobiography of a Yogi".
Guruji's book, "Autobiography of a Yogi", is available at the Centre.
Sunday evening Satsang
5:30pm - 7:30pm on Sunday - monthly
Please refer to the Class timetable for next Sunday's Satsang dates
Satsang is "in the company of the Truth" - sharing the Truth with other like-minded souls - whatever form Truth takes for you! On most Sundays we will follow the Sivananda organisations Traditional style Satsang program see details of the teachings here: Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Society
Evening starts with 20 - 30 minute meditation, kirtan or traditional chanting (we have the chants printed so its easy to follow, sometimes we have a harmonium player too, and we always have shakers for musical support!!) followed by a short reading or if we have a visiting teacher, they may give a discourse on a philosophical or yogic topic. The evening concludes around 7:30 with prayers and (waving of a lit flame in honour of our Higher Selves and the Light - a beautiful Hindu tradition that you can participate in or watch) after which we share Prasad - blessed food (in this case only snacks, not a full meal!)
Occasionally on Sunday's if a great teacher is visiting and available, they may offer to lead a discourse or discussion on a spiritual topic. This will always be advertised in our newsletters (signup now on the right side of this page) or on the workshops listing on this website.
Meditation for Life
Thursdays 10-11am and every month
"Meditation practices and methods for dealing with Life as a school of wonder and opportunity"
You can attend meditation classes/groups with Leon Deith - he leads Meditation for Life, a non-denominational meditation program that is suitable for anyone and covers all aspects of meditation. This is incredibly useful for anyone struggling to come to terms with events and stress in their lives, meditation is proven to help with dealing with stress, and avoiding depression.
Meditation for life is a course of 6 one hour classes that will enable you to become aware of the unlimited happiness and potential that lies within. We will look at benefits to the physical body in combating stress, mental benefits of being in control of your life, bringing more Self confidence, Inner Peace, self esteem, greater concentration and a stronger ability to learn and remember, helping to reduce depression, hostility and emotional instability becoming more balanced and resilient.
Meditation is not a religious practice although it is used by many of the Worlds Great Religions, we teach a non denominational technique that involves breath work and visualisation.
All welcome. Scheduled class (see timetable for any updates to timings etc.) Drop-in price £89 otherwise you can use class passes
