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 is located in the Northgate area at 12317 15th Ave NE at NE 125th St. Practitioners of Sahaja Meditation are able to experience the state of mental silence known as “thoughtless awareness”.
In thoughtless awareness, your mind is calmed and gradually emptied of all distractions, excessive thoughts or negative feelings. One can access the subtle inner energy that resides within everyone. As this energy flows, it imparts a healing and balancing effect on both our physical and mental health.
Trust-Bolack, an instructor at the new center says, “Sahaja Meditation is an experience. It is not a belief system, or a membership organization. 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, but you have to want to correct them. One of the most visible benefits is that a lot of junk has cleared out of my life- fear, anger, stress.”
Sahaja Meditation is a non-profit organization offering free meditation in more than 75 countries worldwide. For years up until now, classes have been offered in the Seattle area by a core group of dedicated volunteers in libraries, community rooms, schools, community festivals, businesses, and by special invitation.
Now, Sahaja Meditation has opened a center in the Northgate area. They 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, to name a few. All classes are free of charge and no pre-registration is required.
Everyone is welcome to explore the classes at their own pace.
