WHAT KIND OF MEDITATION DO YOU PRACTICE?
The seated meditation practiced at AMI is known as mantra meditation. You simply sit in a straight-back chair with your head, neck and trunk straight, or on the floor with your legs in a cross-legged yoga posture if that is more comfortable. You will be asked to close your eyes and concentrate your silent attention on any name of the Divine Reality that you are most familiar and comfortable with. Do not worry if you have not been given a mantra from a qualified teacher; that is true for a large number of the participants. Here are some suggestions from different traditions:
- Lord Jesus Christ
- Ave Maria
- Barukh attah Adonai
- Om namaha Shivaya
- Om mani padme hum
The actual period for meditation begins with the sound of a bell. A reading and group discussion follow the meditation.
HOW SHOULD I DRESS FOR THE MEDITATION SESSION?
Loose, comfortable clothing is best.
IS THERE A CHARGE?
No, the Sunday AMI MEDITATION and satsang is free. When we met in person, we gratefully accepted donations. If you are so moved, you can always make an online donation here to AMI to support all our teaching classes, workshops and visiting speakers.
