Ongoing Monthly/Bi-Monthly Events

Chakra Meditation and Oneness Blessing

Every Other Monday Evening from 6:30-8:30pm - next session Monday, February 20th

(subsequent session: March 6th)

Suggested Donation - $5-$10

The format for the evenings is Sharing Circle, Chakra Dhyana and Oneness Blessing. All are welcome!

To register, please call Maureen at 215-424-4444 or 215-431-8838.

The Chakra Dhyana is a very powerful Spiritual Practice to awaken Kundalini, connect you with higher conscious, and clear and activate the 7 chakras. Using the Chakra Dhyana, we briefly chant the Bija Mantras for each Chakra. At the conclusion of the Chakra Dhyana the Oneness Blessing will be given. The Oneness Blessing is an energy transfer that initiates a neuro-biological change in the brain that connects us with spirit. It results in a growth in consciousness by creating a shift in the perception and experience of life. It is non-denominational; and awakens our connection with the oneness in everything, allowing each of us to deepen our relationship with ourselves, those we love, and with all that is.
