Samyama "Pure Yogic Meditation" Festival

  • Hridaya Hermitage 245 Greenwood Brook Road Industry, Maine United States of America (map)

Samyama is our greatest power, where all abilities come from. All of our attainments, achievements and successes come through varying levels of Samyama. To become a master of Samyama is to become a master of success. Samyama is the supreme methodology Yogis used to gain knowledge of everything, including the true nature of a human being.

Samyama is the state of intense focused attention that allows us to meditate and be absorbed in reality, while concentrating on all manner of activity. It can be practiced at all times, in all places, forever enhancing our lives through the clarity, insights and knowledge gained in this state defined as “concentration, meditation and absorption”.

The third chapter of Patanjali's Yoga Sutras, one quarter of the text, is dedicated to Samyama. This illustrates the essential nature of Samyama in the practice of Yoga, the science of uniting with reality.

At the festival we will reveal the true meaning of Samyama. Discover the latent innate power we all possess of extreme focused attention! Samyama is the original, unadulterated power of manifestation. Manifest what we all desire most: to be fulfilled and emanate that experience to all beings!

Our Festival day includes:

  •  3 ½ hours teachings, application and discussion introducing Yogi life and Samyama

  •  An Asana (postures), Pranayam (breath extension) and meditation intensive

  • Sattvic (balanced) vegan fare-prepared by experienced dedicated practitioners and chefs
