One Day Meditation Workshop
Toronto: Saturday May 2, 2015
9:00 am – 6:30 pm
(Doors open at 8:15 am; finish time is approximate)
Our minds release 1000 thoughts per wink of an eye. Some of these thoughts get lost in the unconscious, and some get stuck in the subconscious and affect the conscious mind. These thoughts become feelings, emotions, desires, multi-realities or fantasies. Instead of mastering our mind, often our mind and thoughts direct us, which can cause impulsive decisions, poor communication and self-imposed stress.
White Tantric Yoga® enables you to break through these subconscious blocks, so you can have a more enjoyable life. In the shortest time, you can experience release from a lot of the burden you carry in your mind.
When you see and act on each moment with clarity, you can gain a deeper understanding of yourself and your life can change. Your mind, body, and soul can act together as one. This is the path to personal freedom and awareness, and will bring more success to every area of your life.
About The Mahan Tantric
Yogi Bhajan became Master of Kundalini Yoga at the age of 16 in his native India. He came to the West in 1968. The authority to be the Mahan Tantric (Master of White Tantric Yoga) was bestowed on him in 1971. The practice of White Tantric Yoga, as with most sacred Eastern wisdom, had previously been a tradition passed on from teacher to student in a mystical and selective way.
As a pioneer of this age, Yogi Bhajan decided to open the experience of White Tantric Yoga to anyone who wanted to commit to the discipline. In 1971 in Los Angeles, for the first time in history, White Tantric Yoga was taught publicly.
Until 1986, he traveled throughout the world presenting as many as thirty workshops each year to thousands of students. In 1987, using his unique abilities as Master, together with modern technology, he began to present White Tantric Yoga as a videotaped series which has the same effect as when he was physically present. He said the tapes would continue to have the same effect when he was no longer in his physical body. This has proved true, and in fact since his passing from his physical body in October, 2004, thousands of students have confirmed that their Tantric experience is one of being in his presence.
Who Can Participate
There are no prerequisites for participating in White Tantric Yoga®. Beginners will tune into their internal energies and enjoy a deep and sometimes challenging meditative experience. More advanced meditation practitioners will deepen their experience and make new inroads to their spiritual awareness.
How to Prepare
It is helpful to come to the course ready to meditate, having done some yoga or stretching exercises.
What to Bring
Wear loose comfortable clothing, preferably white (white combines all the colours and enhances your magnetic field and auric strength).
Please bring a cotton head covering which can stay securely on your head during the exercises.
Wear shoes that slip on and off easily. White Tantric is practiced with the feet uncovered.
Please bring a blanket or sheepskin to sit on and a light blanket to cover yourself with during relaxation periods.
Because this is a cleansing process you will be asked to drink water. Water will be provided during the day or you may bring your own.
What to Expect
White Tantric Yoga® is done in pairs as a group meditation. You sit facing a partner and follow instructions for meditation given on videotape by the Mahan Tantric, Yogi Bhajan. A representative of the Mahan Tantric will be present to facilitate White Tantric Yoga®.
Each workshop consists of between six and eight kriyas. A kriya is a meditation incorporating:
- a yoga posture (asana)
- a mental focus
- a hand position (mudra)
- a breathing technique (pranayam)
- and/or a mantra
Sometimes the kriyas are accompanied by music. These kriyas vary in length from thirty-one to sixty-two minutes. There are breaks between each kriya. The environment is peaceful, and the atmosphere is friendly, supportive, and uplifting.
A vegetarian lunch is provided.
