The Kundalini Yoga and Meditation as taught by Yogi Bhajan is for everyone, universal and non-denominational. The focus in Kundalini Yoga Kriya practice is an awareness of body, mind, and emotion. In awareness self-growth and inner coherence takes place. When we are coherent, we feel better and our compassion for self and all beings increases. During a Kundalini Yoga class, you can expect six major components: tuning-in with the Adi Mantra, pranayama, kriya, relaxation, meditation and the closing mantra Sat Nam.
Contemplative spirituality can be defined as a life of faith in interior submission to God and pervading all one's motivations and behaviour; a life of prayer and action prompted by the inspirations of the Holy Spirit; a disposition not limited to devotional practices, rituals, liturgy, or other particular acts of piety or service to others, but rather the catalyst that integrates, unifies and directs all one's activities. Trappiest monk and scholar of comparative religion, Thomas Merton states
“… monastic prayer, especially meditation and contemplative prayer, is not so much a way to find God as a way of resting in him whom we have found, who loves us, who is near to us, who comes to us to draw us to himself.”
― Thomas Merton, Contemplative Prayer.
