Raja Yoga Meditation helps you reach a deeper understanding of yourself, your intrinsic positive qualities and your innate value. There is beauty in all of us and through meditation the inner beauty not only is revealed to the self, but also to the people around us. Join practitioners from the Brahma Kumaris World Spiritual University to explore these universal concepts and encourage your inner spiritual development toward a fresh perspective on values such as justice, freedom, respect and love.
On Saturday, June 28 from 4:00-5:45 PM, participants will explore the Heart of Well Being. This session will be interactive and experiential, where your tools for the inward journey will be explored and shared.
