Japa Meditation and Bhakti Immersion:
Calm your Mind and Open Your Heart
10 WEEKLY SESSIONS, Sundays, 11:00am – 1:00pm ET
Do you desire to live a more heart-centered and intuitively-guided life?
Do you find yourself wishing to spend more time in your heart and less in your head?
Do you aspire to look at yourself, the world, and those around you through a more loving lens?
This 10-week course is approved by Yoga Alliance for Continuing Education credits and is designed to be highly practical and transformational, drawing from the tools of Bhakti Yoga (the yogic path of devotion), specifically Japa Meditation ― the repetition of the name of the Divine.
The practice of Bhakti Yoga calms the mind and cultivates love deep within the heart. This practice generates peace of mind and unconditional, unwavering love; both of these are necessary ingredients for successfully navigating challenging times. When you raise your own vibration through Bhakti Yoga, you elevate yourself and those around you.
This carefully-curated course is designed to help you experience deep transformation within yourself through the nine modes of Bhakti Yoga. Each of these modes, in their own way, forges the path for the highest successes and spiritual attainments.
Join us for a practical, transformative, and devotion-filled experience that will dive deep into Bhakti Yoga and by association the art of meditation itself. This course features a number of incredible guest speakers and includes 1-on-1 support for students with their spiritual diaries and individual spiritual journeys with the added opportunity to give weekly feedback!
As you continue to deepen your divine love and devotion, this creates a powerful type of one-pointed focus. This centered focus creates the fertile ground from which you can grow and blossom to your full potential of a meaningful, fulfilling, and loving life. Furthermore, this focus helps you to foster concentration in all aspects of your life, increasing your daily energy and general feelings of contentment and joy.
If you have been shielding your heart, or if your heart needs healing, Bhakti Yoga can help you to gently open it to the abundance, opportunity, and prosperity that is waiting to become manifest n your life. When Divine Love flows readily into you and through you, your heart is open to possibilities that were always there and only missed by you due to mindset, poor timing, and lack of knowledge. If you’re already leading your life with an open heart, these practices will help you expand and experience even deeper transformation.
All levels are welcome. No experience necessary.
