Awaken – Concentration and Mindfulness Meditation
Practical Meditation Course
Take a quantum leap in your self-understanding through yogic wisdom and meditation.
An in-depth course on Meditation with Ruslan Kleytman.
Find peace, calm and relaxation and say goodbye to stress!
To be awakened is to be fully alive, rooted in the moment, free from conceptions, misperceptions, fears, and anxieties that obscure the peace of your True Nature. Meditation may be the most effective method to harnessing the power of your mind, as well as cultivating a sense of peace, clarity, happiness and even bliss.
Meditation has a long, illustrious history and perhaps it has never been needed as much as now. With all of the modern day stresses and strains, meditation is a successful form of stress reduction which promotes health and well-being.
The Awaken course is a carefully developed program of practical wisdom classes, plus several daily meditation sittings and satsangs.
Come to understand the structure of the human ego, how it operates and limits your day-to-day life and discover maps of consciousness to enable you to traverse the ego level and function in Soul-consciousness.
Find clarity in your life, develop your meditation practice, heal yourself from suffering and discover your inner Self.
