Kirtan Kriya Meditation

Mental Health Crisis?

The Guardian reported: 29% rise in referrals for first suspected episode of psychosis between April 2019 and April 2021. Is it just the Covid restrictions, or is it becoming more and more difficult to live a meaningful and fulfilled life in our society?

Yoga and meditation are no substitute for a meaningful life in a society based on standards and virtues which enable and promote people’s life visions and which values people’s contributions to the community in diverse ways. But yoga and meditation do help to cope with challenges and the lack or obstruction of vision and opportunity for development and spiritual maturing. They might even help to bring ourselves to work towards the society we want to live in.

Meditation balances the variety of energies and tendencies in us, calms and clears our mental and emotional faculties, promotes processing of experience and challenges, and opens connections for inspiration and vision. Physical yoga provides the energy, vitality, courage and endurance to act on our intuition.

Meditate with me

We loosen up and liberate the habitual pathways of our mind-emotion-body system with this flagship of Kundalini Meditation.

This meditation brings a total mental balance to the individual psyche. Vibrating the sound on each fingertip alternates the electrical polarities. Index and ring fingers are considered negative relative to the other fingers. This causes a balance in the electromagnetic projection of the aura.

The five primal sounds S, T, N, M, and A are derived from the seed mantra “Sat Nam” and are describing a complete cycle of creation/action through the stages of infinity, life, death, and transformation. Each time the mudra is closed by joining the thumb with a finger, the ego seals the effect of that mudra in the consciousness.
