“Sahaj” means natural, effortless. 
“Samadhi” is a profound state of our conscious mind.

Sahaj Samadhi is a simple and highly effective technique to connect to one-self, and it gives us the deepest form of relaxation in a very short time.

Proper, regular meditation can benefit everyone. The busier we get in life the more we need to practice meditation! Meditation improves our perception, observation and expression.

Why Sahaj Samadhi Meditation?: 
There are many great meditation techniques available today. Meditation techniques are broadly categorized in 3 types:
1. Through using power of concentration: This requires considerable amount of time and energy.
2. Through contemplation: A lot of effort involved, hard to contain this experience in practical way of life.
3. Transcendental : Sahaj Samadhi meditation follows this method, which is natural, effortless, and vast in its experience. You can obtain deepest possible level of Samadhi using personalized sound (called seed Mantra or "Beej Mantra").

Ostara celebration with Enodia's Grove
Open to the Public · Hosted by Elaanie S.

March 21st, 6:30-9:30


Ostara, or the Vernal Equinox, is a time of equal light and dark - a moment of balance as the days grow warmer and life returns to the land. Though Ostara is based on a Germanic fertility celebration which honors the Goddess Eostre, pagans all over the world have been celebrating this season as far back as we know. The flowers bloom, babies are born, the earth warms and we plant and prepare for a season of growth and plenty. Yet if we are to reap the desired harvest, we must first tend to the soil. We must rid the fields of pests and obstacles which would hinder growth! We must consider what crops are best suited to the environment - and what is needed. And so it is with humanity as well.

Come join Enodia's Grove as we turn the Wheel towards the Sun and celebrate this great season of fertility!

Potluck to follow! Please contact Jessica Jones of Enodia's Grove on FB for details about the potluck.
