Laurel - Ancient Yoga for Modern Times
TriYoga; the trinity of asana, pranayam, meditation


"JAYA GURU DEVI - Devi is a Sanskrit word meaning Mother Goddess, Divine Energy. The ever-expanding expression of the Absolute is called Devi, the cosmic energy. All yoga practice (sadhana) culminates in awakening this energy (kundalini) for the purpose of realizing a higher state of consciousness. In the eternal dance of energy (Shakti) and consciousness (Shiva), this sacred energy awakens and consciousness expands. One begins to flow from the heart, living by higher knowledge, filled with blissful joy" -Kaliji

Ma is Laurel's guru with whom Laurel seen the majority of three years in India between 1977 until Ma's mahasamadhi in 1982. We will chant, meditate, hear stories, and contemplate Ma's words and teachings. Satsang means "gathering in truth". Matri means "mother". Come share the joy!
