 Double Gong Meditation

Friday March 10th, with Regina & Hukam

Friday March 24th with Dev Atma and Hukam

5:30- 6:30 pm

$12 donation

 The universe is powered by sound.  The gong is the basic creative sound. Out of the gong comes all music, all sounds, all words.  The sound of the gong is the nucleus of the Word.  It takes three to ninety seconds for the sound of the gong to overtake the mind!  Wow, no wonder I'm out like a light within the first few strokes.   The gong is traditionally used in the Kundalini Yoga tradition as a healing tool. It is like a primitive form of ultrasound. The sound vibrations of the gong move through your body/mind clearing blocks, releasing tension and bringing harmony to your whole body.

 When you join us for Gong Meditation you will make yourself  a comfortable spot on the floor.  Using a yoga mat, cushions, blankets and perhaps even an eye pillow to rest the body on during the next 45 minutes of relaxing, rhythmic gong vibrations.  Most likely you will enjoy one of the most deepest sleeps you have ever experienced.  When finished you will be deeply refreshed and relaxed that only you could describe through your personal experience.  

It is Sound as Therapy!

As you listen to the Gong Sound, it will penetrate every cell and fiber of your body.  Emotions and thoughts are provoked from the subconscious. The entire nervous system is put under pressure to adjust and heal itself.
When that pressure builds, totally relax in the deepest meditation possible.  The sound will carry you beyond all fears.  The pressure will release the nervous system of many illnesses.
The parasympathetic nervous system is ruled by sound. To regenerate nothing is more powerful than the sound of Gong.

 Come for the Relaxation, the Release, & the Renewal.

Prana Community Kirtan

Dedicate your voice in song as we sing and play music from the heart. Our community Kirtan lead by the Prana Kirtan band and local musicians bring love and warmth to the studio. We can't be community without you. Join us for veggie potluck and bring a dish to share beginning at 5:30pm, At 6:30pm we begin the music. It's all about the sound current, remember you are the instrument and the voice is the opening for sound. Let it come from your heart. 


The potluck begins at 5:30pm; bring a dish to share

Music starts at 6:30pm


You are welcome to join us if you haven't experienced Kirtan before. This is a perfect event if you love to enjoy good food, sing, dance and play music.

Our community of musicians gather to support the Prana Kirtan Band. 
Come and enjoy, support the band and one another.

Kirtan is a very different kind of music. Based on ancient chants, it has the ability to quiet the mind if listened to with intention. Everyone experiences kirtan differently, and it doesn’t have to be a religious experience. You can think of it as a sing-along. A kirtan concert is not your typical concert either. Everyone sits on the floor, although chairs are usually available. The performers are accessible, in fact there’s not much of a distinction between performers & audience. The wallah (leader) sings the mantra, and the audience sings it back.  As you sing with each other you experience a deep connection with the musicians, the other audience members and yourself. And when the music stops, your mind is quiet.


Join us as we continue the Second Sunday of the Month community Kirtan.

 Sunday April 2nd, 2017

5:00 am - 7:30am

A morning practice of  kriya yoga, chant and meditation in the kundalini yoga tradition according to Yogi Bhajan.   Experience your inner essence during the amrit vela.  A time where soul meets the universe.  Yoga! 

"What is sadhana? It’s a committed prayer. It is something which you want to do, have to do, and which is being done by you. … Sadhana is self-enrichment. It is not something which is done to please somebody or to gain something. Sadhana is a personal process in which you bring out your best."

~Yogi Bhajan

The Benefits of Aquarian Shadhana:

  • It balances the nervous system, supports a healthy spine, and improves digestion
  • It grounds body, mind, and soul with powerful affirmations
  • It helps us tap into our original light every day and meet life's challenges better
  • It fosters meaningful connections and sacred community
  • It encourages stillness and thereby promotes closeness to God
  • It clears karma

We gather at 5:00am for morning prayer of Japji, followed by an hour of Yoga (Kriya). A set of postures to prepare the body for meditation by listening and chanting the 7  Aquarian chants.
A 2 1/2 hour practice that represents tithing  10% of the day to source.
Join us for this early morning meditation during the amrit vela. When the world is quiet before dawn and our prayers can be heard

During what are called the “ambrosial hours” (the two and a half hours just before sunrise), when the sun is at a sixty-degree angle to the Earth, the energy you put into your sadhana gets maximum results. Your world is quieter. It’s easier to meditate and concentrate before the hustle and bustle of the day begins. 

Develop a regular sadhana and you take control of your life. Develop a deep sadhana and you open the doors of experience. Commit to meet your higher Self each morning and your decisions and your life become original; your life will bear the signature of your soul; your radiance will express the meaningful intimacy of the Infinite in each moment. Immerse yourself in the joy of victory that comes from starting each day with a powerful sadhana and every challenge becomes opportunity. 

   Everyone is welcomed.  No experience required.
