New Sahaja Meditation Center in Seattle Announces Grand Opening
Seattle, WA- September 4, 2012- A group of like-minded individuals have pooled their resources to open a meditation center where the people of Seattle and the surrounding area can relax, meditate and renew their energy completely free of charge. The new Sahaja Meditation Center in the Northgate area, 12317 15th Ave NE at NE 125th St will be hosting an open house on Saturday, September 15 from 10am to 5pm. Experience mini-meditation sessions, relax to live instrumental music, enjoy refreshments and meet the instructors.
Sahaja Meditation is designed to help you achieve a state of thoughtless awareness and self-realization quickly through the awakening of a powerful energy inside you. The ability to awaken and experience this energy quickly and easily differentiates Sahaja Meditation from all other forms of meditation.
Program instructors, all with many years of meditation experience, volunteer their time to help others feel as good as they do. Kabar Trust-Bolack, an intensive care nurse and instructor at the new center says, “Sahaja Meditation is an experience. It has really helped me to understand myself, to face issues, and to both accept and improve myself. When you meditate you get the power to see your problems and correct them. One of the most visible benefits is that a lot of negative things have cleared out of my life - fear, anger, stress.”
Many studies have shown that meditation is effective intervention for reducing stress and improving the overall health and well-being of those that practice it. Deepti Munjal, a software engineer at Microsoft, tells of her experience with this meditation. “One evening as I drove to the meditation program, I had such a severe headache I could barely drive. In the beginning, I tried to meditate but couldn’t because of my headache. After a while I felt a cool energy, like a little breeze flowing through my hands and body, and then my headache completely vanished.” Many such experiences of both immediate and long term health benefits have been achieved by those practicing Sahaja Meditation.
The new center will offer a variety of meditation programs from beginner to advanced level as well as specialty courses such as Meditation for Moms and Babies, and classes given in Spanish and Russian. The classes themselves are conducted in a peaceful environment where music is sometimes used to promote a calm atmosphere. Meditations are guided by instructors that are designed to accommodate the group. Affirmations, gestures and simple attention exercises are used to enhance the experience. Individual assistance is always available, and students are encouraged and empowered to meditate at home. The meditation center is a nonprofit and classes and services are free to the public.
