What is Yoga Science?

The American Meditation Institute is a 501(c)3 non-profit educational organization devoted to providing comprehensive training in Yoga Science—the world’s oldest holistic mind/body medicine and the core principle of every spiritual tradition. Yoga is the sacred science that provides proven benefits by facilitating the union of the superconscious mind with the physical, mental and emotional elements of everyday life. Founded in 1996 by Leonard and Jenness Perlmutter, AMI combines ancient Eastern wisdom and modern Western science in a practical, empowering curriculum. The foundation course of this curriculum is AMI MEDITATION.

Consider the THOUGHT OF THE WEEK:

"When the mind habitually dwells in the Past or Future we cannot receive the gifts arriving in the Present."

How often are we truly present in the moment? So often our thoughts drift to a memory, a reminder or regret from our past. Other times we are dreaming or wishing, considering an expectation or resolution we have for the future. These moments come at anytime, while conversing with others and considering what we will say next or maybe while we are eating breakfast- before you know it your plate is empty or the phone conversation is over. It is exactly the time you need to be present to experience your relationships to others.

What are some ways that you redirect your attention to be more present? Drop us a comment to respond.
