Many think that to deepen your practice you must spend more time meditating. While this is sometimes helpful, often we are just sitting and repeating a mantra, thinking about the last argument we had, or dozing on and off. Seven minutes of real meditation opens awareness to Pure Consciousness and the spiritual-Self. The real key is to prepare the mind for meditation by how you go about your daily life, by applying the yamas and niyamas to your thoughts and actions. We will focus on learning how to move from the still-point. Questions are always the best way to participate in this talk.
