Cultivate Silent Mind with Anahata - The Sound of Silence

Jan 01, 2022 . 4 Weeks . Remote

Silence is the birthplace of a greater consciousness. It is in a silent mind this greater consciousness reveals itself. However, the mind is full of chatter and developing inner silence is not easy. Anahata is an easy to follow, systematic process, a transformational practice based on Sri Aurobindo's integral yoga, to cultivate inner silence and peace. A 4-Week Online Course to Cultivate a Silent Mind, the Foundation for Developing Yogic Consciousness A silent mind is like a clear blue sky without any clouds and it reveals the sun of greater clarity. An untrained mind is covered by the clouds of constant mental activity and it veils the light of greater consciousness. However, wrestling with your thoughts is not very helpful in bringing inner silence. There is another way, the way of integral yoga where you learn to open to stillness, wideness, silence and peace which naturally makes your mind silent. Duration Live Sessions with Manoj Pavitran Saturdays 5:30-7:00 PM IST Optional Practice, Mon - Fri
