Each person experiences meditation in his or her own way. Our classes teach everyone a set of basic meditation techniques that have been evolved by our own teacher, Sri Chinmoy, called “Heart Meditation”.
There are several entry points into deeper consciousness. Sri Chinmoy teaches that basing our inner development in one of these, the spiritual heart, is by far the safest, easiest and fastest way to master meditation.
Heart meditation offers an entirely new way of experiencing yourself and the world around you. It develops a sense of deeper intuitive awareness and oneness, and promotes a feeling of peace that is unshakable amidst the turmoil of life.
These techniques are based on the eternal teachings of all the great masters. They include creative visualisation, proper breathing, various forms of concentration such as closed and open eye, mantra, meditating on the form and the formless and meditating with music.
The aim of the classes is to give you firsthand experiences of these techniques so that you can develop an on-going practice and establish yourself as a meditator. The classes are informal and are usually held in the evenings and weekends in city and suburban locations.
Our teachers are experienced meditators who have studied directly under the guidance of Sri Chinmoy for many years. The classes are designed for both beginners and those who have some previous experience and may be looking for new inspiration.
Sri Chinmoy Centres in Melbourne, Adelaide, Perth, Canberra and Geelong, as well as Auckland and Christchurch, also offer free meditation classes.
