About Meditation:

Sahaj Samadhi, meaning effortless transcendence, is a meditation technique developed by Sri Sri Ravi Shankar. Sahaj Samadhi is a natural and graceful system of effortless meditation providing the mind with a much needed, deep rest. Sahaj Samadhi helps the racing mind to settle down. When the mind settles down, it lets go of tension and stress, centering itself in the present moment. It is only in the present moment we find true happiness -- those moments when we are free from regrets about the past or anxiety about the future. (this exerpt was taken from Sri Sri's web biography)

"When the mind is free of fear, guilt and anger, and is more centered, then it can heal the system of any ailment. The consciousness that creates the body also has the power to heal. Pure consciousness is pure love and love is the highest power on earth." - H. H. Sri Sri Ravi Shankar.

The Power of the Breath
image that says Breathe There is a power in the breath that can be use to energize and heal. For most, its a mystery, but with the proper training, the breath's full potential for bringing transformation and healing can be realized by everyone. The Club offers the weekend Art of Living Foundation course on learning how to use the breath to eliminate stress and tension, heal the mind and body, and to energize. It has been adopted by the World Bank, the DC Police Dept, and many other institutions around the world to make their employees and colleagues healthy, sharp and productive. This course includes Sudarshan Kriya, a scientifically validated breathing process, that really helps, and anyone can learn. Club members get a discount on this course that is regularly offered in the Goddard area.
