Staying Calm and Non-Reactive
Sahaja Yoga Meditation allows you to pay objective, nonjudgmental, nonreactive attention to all aspects of your daily experience, both internal and external. This helps you decrease your emotional reactivity and flush negative feelings.

Meditation produces structural changes in your brain that enhance attention, perception, and focus.

The messages your brain receives can have a dramatic effect on your behavior, health and overall happiness. At any given moment, millions of chemical reactions can be taking place in your brain.

Meditation, by its very nature, has a built-in ability to function as an emotional regulator. It can increase messages sent by key neurochemicals that keep you feeling positive and resilient while strengthening your ability to inhibit negative emotions and thoughts.

Longer-Term and Deeper Health Benefits
AD/HD
Sahaja Yoga meditation sharpens attention and focus and helps people with AD/HD take control of their lives. Our meditation programs are offered to students in schools across the United States, with the goal of boosting physical health and mental resilience. Studies have suggested that around 70 percent of these students received significant, direct benefits, including enhanced attention and self-control.
Sahaja Yoga meditation may also be an effective in-home management tool for families with children who have AD/HD. In an Australian study, published in Clinical Child Psychology and Psychiatry, parents and children participated in a 6-week program of twice-weekly Sahaja clinic sessions and regular meditation at home. Results showed improvements in the children’s AD/HD behaviors, as well as their self-esteem and the quality of their relationships. 
Depression Relief
For many, Sahaja Yoga meditation can be an effective treatment for depression, typically as part of a comprehensive treatment approach.
The regular practice of Sahaja Yoga meditation helps you process and regulate emotions by teaching you how to control what you devote your attention to.
You’ll learn to exercise conscious control over your thoughts and feelings and develop the ability to pay impartial, nonjudgmental, nonreactive attention to all aspects of your experience. This helps diminish the sense of separateness, isolation or aloneness that tends to accompany depression.

Meditation can provide a holistic way for you to improve the quality of your sleep.
Higher Purpose and Spirituality
Unique to Sahaja Yoga meditation is our deep, committed interest in living with higher purpose and spirituality.
If you’re looking for spiritual enlightenment, or you’re on the path of self-discovery to identify your life’s true purpose, then Sahaja Yoga meditation is for you.
That’s because we reach beyond basic knowledge, and help you actualize your spirituality with specific techniques. Through self-realization, you’ll awaken and nurture the spiritual instrument within you, to unlock your life’s potential.
You will be united with what you were born for and meant to achieve.
On the spiritual plane, Sahaja Yoga is precisely what the mystics and monks from thousands of years ago were pining for, but did not have access to actualize in their lifetimes.
They fasted for weeks, lived in caves, hung themselves upside down from trees, and froze themselves to death in the frosty mountains of the Himalayas – all for this singular objective of actualizing their self-realization. Most of them still never made it.
Getting your innate spiritual being connected to the collective unconscious, and discovering your true purpose is only possible today in this new age of spirituality that Sahaja Yoga has ushered us into.
We experience profound joy when our practitioners reach their full potential.
Actualizing your spirituality also has positive impacts on your character and personality, and helps you make lasting transformations. The inner subtle instrument is so powerful that it can bring about your re-birth, which is formally known as Nirvana and Moksha. It can also recalibrate your Karma, and free you from it. Sahaja is the real deal – the actual method by which you work on these aspects in your life.
We can satisfy the thirst of the deepest spiritual seeker – ask and you shall receive!

We’re here to help you heal every aspect of yourself through a powerful form of meditation that’s much more than what it seems to be.
