LEARN TO MEDITATE

MEDITATION COURSES and MEDITATION CLASSES conducted by MIND-YOGA (Aust) is training in traditional, authentic Kundalini Yoga Meditation under the direct guidance of Meditation Master of 30 years teaching, Dean Das.

This is Traditional Yoga - it is NOT Westernised Commercial Yoga for Body / Ego enhancement. 

 

MEDITATION YOGA training is to assist you in becoming 'a better person'.                                               'Healthier', more 'aware' and more 'compassionate' i.e. a more evolved human being.                               The ultimate purpose of human life is to evolve - to 'know' one's self.                                                           To know one's self requires 'stilling' the disturbing mind patterns that obscure self-knowledge, bringing unhappiness. 

'Yoga is the stilling of the thought fluctuations in the consciousness'.                                                           'Yogah chittavritti nirodhah' (Yoga Sutras, 1.2).

MEDITATION YOGA COURSES and CLASSES is training in Complete Yoga - Yoga of the Body; Yoga of the Vital energy (Breath); Yoga of the Mind - the Yoga of 'the three bodies' - constituting the human organism.   It 'reconditions' the total human organism by oxygenating the blood cells; purifying the endocrine system; rejuvenating the central nervous system; stimulating the brain cells, causing the release of  'positive' neurochemicals, dopamine, serotonin, and oxycontin. 

METHODOLOGY -  Meditation Yoga methodology consists of 6 series of physical postures (asanas); in conjunction with breath regulations ( pranayamas); in conjunction with mental concentrations (pratyahayaras/dharanas), resulting in  'one-pointedness' of mind (samyama) leading to samadhi 'where the Self is revealed in its own splendour' (Yoga Sutras, 1.3).

TO 'MEDITATE' is a highly skilled pursuit. As with any new learning, the quality of what is learnt is dependant upon the quality of the knowledge, and experience of the teacher. A poor teacher= little knowledge; an average teacher = average knowledge; a high quality teacher = high quality knowledge. 

DEAN DAS is an Australian born, Meditation Master, a direct disciple of revered Siddha Meditation Master, Swami Prakashananda Saraswati of Nasik, Western India. Dean Das lived with his Guru in a 'one-to-one', Guru-disciple relationship for 7 years atop Sapta Shringi Devi mountain, Nasik, Western India. For the past 35 years, Dean Das has been teaching, lecturing, and writing on the philosophy and practice of authentic, traditional Meditation Yoga.

MIND-YOGA MEDITATION is the tradition of practice of the 9th Century Siddha/Nath Tantric Yogic tradition of Western India. 

Note: MIND-YOGA, MEDITATION CLASSES and COURSES require no prior 'pre-requisites'. You do not need to be 'young', 'super-fit', nor expected to perform abnormal and pointless, physical monkey contortions. Mind-Yoga is concerned only with your personal integrity, a willingness to learn, and a commitment to your personal growth. 


“When the breath is steady, the mind is steady. When the breath is still, the mind is still. When the mind is still, it is called Samadhi (total union). Hence, the breath must be regulated until still” - Goraksasataka

”Yoga is the means and the goal. Yoga is the path and the result. Live in Yoga to realise Yoga. Understand Yoga through Yoga. Yoga is living in harmony with your Innermost Being
