Sodarshan Chakra Kriya
11minutes (starting) ~ Times vary, please message for schedule
This is one of the greatest meditations you can practice. It has considerable transformational powers. The personal identity is rebuilt, giving the individual a new perspective on the Self.
It retrains the mind. According to the tantra shastras, it can purify your past karma and the subconscious impulses that may block you from fulfilling you. It balances all the 27 facets of life and mental projection, and gives you the pranic power of health and healing.
It establishes inner happiness and a state of flow and ecstasy in life. It opens your inner universe to relate, co-create, and complete the external universe.
Treat the practice with reverence and increase your depth, dimension, caliber, and happiness. It gives you a new start against all odds.
Posture: Sit in Easy Pose with a straight spine, and a light Neck Lock.
Eyes: The eyes are fixed at the tip of the nose. (This meditation is not to be done with the eyes closed.)
Breath and Mantra:
a) Block the right nostril with the right thumb. Inhale slowly and deeply through the left nostril. Suspend the breath.
Mentally chant the mantra Wha-Hay Gu-Roo 16 times.
Pull the navel in 1/3 of the way on Wha, 1/3 farther on Hay, and all the way in on Guroo. Repeat this process, mentally chanting the mantra.
b) After the 16 repetitions, unblock the right nostril. Place the right index finger (pinkie finger can also be used) to block off the left nostril, and exhale slowly and deeply through the right nostril.
Continue repeating a) and b).
Time: Continue for 11 - 31 minutes. Master practitioners may extend this practice to 62 minutes, then to 2-1/2 hours a day.
Inhale, hold the breath 5-10 seconds, then exhale. Stretch the arms up and shake every part of your body for 1 minute, so the energy can spread.
“Of all the 20 types of yoga, including Kundalini Yoga, this is the highest Kriya. This meditation cuts through all darkness. It will give you a new start.
It is the simplest kriya, but at the same time the hardest. It cuts through all barriers of the neurotic or psychotic inside-nature. When a person is in a very bad state, techniques imposed from the outside will not work. The pressure has to be stimulated from within.
The tragedy of life is when the subconscious releases garbage into the conscious mind. This kriya invokes the Kundalini to give you the necessary vitality and intuition to combat the negative effects of the subconscious mind.
There is no time, no place, no space, and no condition attached to this mantra. Each garbage point has its own time to clear. If you are going to clean your own garbage, you must estimate and clean it as fast as you can, or as slow as you want.
Start practicing slowly; the slower the better. Start with five minutes a day, and gradually build the time to either 31 or 62 minutes. Maximum time is 2-1/2 hours for practice of this meditation.”
Sodarshan Chakra Kriya and Teaching
This meditation balances the Teacher aspect of the mind. It acts on all the other aspects like a mirror to reveal their true nature and adds corrections. You act as a human being not just a human doing. If the Teacher aspect is too strong, you risk a spiritual ego, which becomes too attached to the ability to detach and to be "above" normal struggles.
When the Teacher aspect is too weak, you can misuse your spiritual and teaching position for personal advantage. When balanced, the Teacher aspect is impersonally personal. It starts with absolute awareness and a neutral assessment from that awareness.
The Teacher uses intuition to know directly what is real and what is a diversion. You respond from the Neutral Mind beyond the positives and negatives. You are clear about the purpose and the laws of each action.
A complete Teacher is not an instructor. The Teacher is the expression of Infinity for the benefit of all. You master non-attachment so that you are simultaneously in all your activities and not of them.

2.5 hours ~ Times vary, please message for schedule
Yogi Bhajan said, at the Winter Solstice of 1972, that a person who wears pure white and meditates on this sound current for 2.5 hours a day for one year, will know the unknown and see the unseen. Through this constant practice, the mind awakens to the infinite capacity of the soul for sacrifice, service, and creation.
This kriya is one of three that Yogi Bhajan mentioned would carry us through the Aquarian Age, even if all other teachings were lost. Balances the mind, improves memory, strengthens the arcline. There are four principle components to practicing Kirtan Kriya correctly: Mantra, Mudra, Visualization, and Voice.
1. Mantra: this kriya uses the five primal sounds, or the Panj Shabd – S, T, N, M, A – in the original bij form of the word Sat Nam:
SA – infinity, cosmos, beginning
TA – life, existence
NA – death
MA – birth This is the cycle of creation. From the Infinite comes life and individual existence. From life comes death or change. From death comes the rebirth of consciousness. From rebirth comes the joy of the Infinite through which compassion leads back to life. Chant the ‘A’ as if you were pronouncing ‘mom,’ in the following manner: SAA TAA NAA MAA
2. Mudra: each repetition of the entire mantra takes 3 to 4 seconds. The elbows are straight while chanting, and each finger touches, in turn, the tip of the thumb with a firm but gentle pressure; SA – index finger (Jupiter) touches thumb, TA – middle finger (Saturn) touches thumb, NA – ring finger (Sun) touches thumb, MA – pinkie finger (Mercury) touches thumb. Repeat.
3. Visualization: you must meditate on the primal sounds in the “L” form. This means that when you meditate you feel there is a constant inflow of cosmic energy into your soalr center, or Tenth Gate (The Crown Chakra). As the energy enters the top of the head, you place Sa, Ta, Na or Ma there. As you chant Sa, for example, the “S” starts at the top of your head and the “A” moves down and out through the Brow Point, projected to Infinity. This energy flow follows the energy pathway called the golden cord – the connection between the pineal and pituitary gland. Some people may occasionally experience headaches from practicing Kirtan Kriya if they do not use this “L” form. The most common reason for this is improper circulation of prana in the solar centers.
4. Voice: we chant the mantra in the three languages of consciousness:
Aloud: the voice of the human - awareness of things of the world
Whisper: the voice of the lover - experiencing the longing to belong
Silent: the voice of the divine - meditate on Infinity or mentally vibrate.
