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

Upcoming Events
3rd Saturday Matri Satsang of Anandamayi Ma

Saturday February 20th, 2016, from 7-9 pm

Center For Spiritual Living,  Sanctuary

4100 Benfield Dr. Kettering 

Jai Ma! In our third Saturday Satsangs we'll be meeting to invoke and learn about the blissful Indian saint; Anandamayi Ma (1896-1982). Ma's consciousness was completely merged in the Divine (Parabrahman) - the state of non-duality which manifests in each individual as his or her Atman (True Self). In this sense Ma would sometimes say to people that she was their Atman. To be in her presence was to become intensely aware of one's indwelling divinity. Ma is Laurel's guru with whom the majority of 3 years in India were spent between 1977, until Ma's mahasamadhi in 1982. We'll do yogic practices of kirtan (chant), meditation, hear stories about Ma & contemplate Ma's words and teachings. Come and share the joy! Satsang translates as gathering in Truth. Matri is Mother. $5 donation appreciated.
First Saturday Kirtan; Shivaratri
Saturday, March 5th, 2016 From 7- 9pm
Center for Spiritual Living Sanctuary
We'll be celebrating Shivaratri an annual vigil of purification and joyful union with the formless Divine. The great night of Shiva. Shiva represents primordial energy. We'll chant Shiva mantras and meditate to elevate ourselves and the world, flooding ourselves with positive energy. A natural extension of yoga practice, chanting quiets the mind & opens the heart. No prior experience needed. 
Chant sheets are provided, making the chants easy to learn. 
$5 donation appreciated.
No 3rd Saturday Matri Satsang on March 19th,
because it's the "Shankar Dayville" Yoga Retreat Day.
The next Matri Satsang will be Sat., April16th.
