Shiva Meditation

Note: This event is now held as a live online video conference.
Go to the Video Conference Schedule for more information.

Swami Atmananda invites you to share in the collective synergy of the Life Sustaining Meditation program that he holds weekly on Tuesday nights at the Kashi Nivas Shiva Meditation Ashram. The space is open for meditation practitioners from all backgrounds. The program usually consists of sacred chanting, 20 minutes of silent group meditation, japa, or contemplative prayer. Swamiji then facilitates an inspiring group process or contemplation. Feel free to bring healthy snacks and refreshments for the social time that follows. It is fine to only attend the meditation portion of the program, but we really encourage you to stay for the group process. Please consider sharing this event with others and inviting your friends.

"The meditation sessions with Swami Atmananda can hardly be described by the limitations of language. He is the embodiment of heartfelt awareness, and one feels completely accepted, as is, as perfect and whole from the very beginning. Swamiji opens the sessions with an idea in mind for discussion, yet he can so beautifully perceive the moment and energy of the group in such a way that the flow of the session becomes what it's meant to be on its own. Everyone feels free to offer something to the discussion, or not, and that freedom is precisely what allows for many to open to their own experience at that very moment. He allows for complete presence in whatever that is meant to mean, for each individual and for the group. The topics he brings are relevant and timeless. The thing that is most exquisite about Swami Atmananda's sessions is that it's all about self-inquiry. It can't be overstated how much the feeling there is about permission to explore that in such beauty and serenity." ~ Julie Gruber
