through Raja Yoga Meditation

A Four Session Introduction to Raja Yoga Meditation
When the winds of change and uncertainty are blowing, the ability to access inner peace and personal power for the challenges of each day is essential. Our inherent and original qualities are peace, stability, and happiness, but where and how did we lose access to such vital inner resources? This Self Mastery course can help!

Raja Yoga Meditation, as taught by the Brahma Kumaris, re-defines the self as a soul and enables a direct connection and relationship with the Supreme Source of purest energy and highest consciousness.
In this course you will learn how to:

  • Meditate anytime, anywhere
  • Experience the beauty of the true self
  • Understand the nature of consciousness
  • Change negative patterns


Please join us as we sample the wisdom from Awakening with Brahma Kumaris, a very popular daily television show seen around the world. Each session reveals a logical yet comfortable way to adopt a spiritual perspective. We will enjoy a half hour program, and then have a lively discussion on how to make it practical in our lives. You may not be able to change reality, but you can learn to change your experience of reality.
