Group Meditation, particularly when performed during the Amrit Vela, (2 1/2 hours before sunrise), resets your cycles and patterns to the rhythm of your ultimate aims, your Soul and the heartbeat of the Universe. It is this time of each day when the “veil” of the ego (limited self) is thinnest and we can mindfully observe all the negative habits that lead away from health, physical stamina, wholeness and higher consciousness and neutralize the desires underlying those habits one by one. Group Meditation is a conscious activity to access the unlimited potential of your life through relating to and embracing the most mysterious aspects of our deep self. It is during the Amrit Vela that prana concentrates and cleansing on all levels is more easily accomplished. Simply being aware, vertical and leaning in the right direction at this time has profound effects as the subconscious. For many other spiritual traditions the Amrit Vela is the acknowledged time for deep spiritual practice. The Amrit Vela, the Nectar Time 2 1/2 hours before dawn, when the world is transitioning is a time when many souls are born or leave their bodies. From 2am – 6am is the most Satvic time when there is no better opportunity to overcome inertia and practice stillness. Meditating in a group develops group consciousness. Meditation is unfortunately a very rare blessing but, you require those two hours to work out your own mind, so that the rest of the day your life can work out.
Schedule for Group Meditation:
