“Aquarian Sadhana is a 2.5-hour practice given to us by Yogi Bhajan that’s so complete it offers enough to nourish your entire being: body, mind, and spirit. It will revitalize you through contact with the infinite during the early morning hours.
The practice begins by chanting a beautiful poem written by Guru Nanak. This poem is called Japji Sahib or The Song of the Soul. Chanting Japji aligns the chakras, cleanses the ten bodies, and immerses us in the sacred sound current that prepares us for a most uplifting yoga and meditation practice. Just listening to the group chant this poem, one receives deep healing.
After chanting, we begin our Kundalini practice with a kriya to bring vitality to every part of the body. We prepare our bodies to sit in meditation and be open to receiving the gifts of a quiet mind and a light heart.
Then, we enjoy Savasana. We relax completely. We surrender. Next, we rise from our deep relaxation to sit in Easy Pose. as we begin to chant the seven mantras for the Aquarian Sadhana. All the chanting brings us into sharper awareness of the qualities of light, grace, wisdom, affection, and bliss that we all embody.
We close the practice with The Long Time Sun, a few deeply chanted Sat Nam’s to remind us that truth is our name. We give gratitude to ourselves, to our practice and to each other before heading out into the world to begin the day with a higher level of awareness.”
