Hridaya Meditation for Children and Parents in the USA

About This Event

Adina is sharing a new series of Hridaya Meditation classes and workshops dedicated to the community of children and parents around the Sanctuary on 8th Street, a place of welcome and safety for children and teens living in marginalized neighborhoods and concentrated poverty in the city. The program will continue with the collaboration of our committed judge at the City Court of Jacksonville, the Juvenile Justice and Youth Services, and the Juvenile Detention Center. The meditation classes are offered free by Satya Sattva Studio, Amelia Island. Satya Sattva has joined the positive mentoring and enrichment activities at the Sanctuary to provide a safe haven and academic remediation to a young population in need. They offer their service with loving kindness in the spirit of Karma Yoga to support at-risk populations in need of recovery and rehabilitation.

      Dangerous

    I booked the 3 Day Awareness Workshop at Hridaya Yoga hoping to become more aware and elevate my spiritual practice. I didn't have any prior expectations about the workshop nor knowledge about the topic itself (the Spritual Heart & Vijnanabhairava Tantra). What happened was that the "workshop" was in fact 8-hours of pure talking (with some breathing excercises) by the founder. I personally found it all very manipulative and even potentially dangerous. Of course, as with all teachings and every alternative group, it's difficult to say exactly what was so concerning. It just all felt wrong. The words chosen, the immanente feeling of being the chosen ones, the mood between the people. I left after day two, around mid-day. It wasn't for me and friends from Mazunte later told me, people at Hridaya live very isolated from the rest of the town, which to me is another warning sign. I am still grateful I went, because I know now where my boundaries are. I always listen to my gut feeling and if you decide to go and feel that it doesn't feel right, please leave.

      Hatha Yoga and Self-enquiry together

    Hridaya Yoga Center in Mazunte offers the most beautiful Hatha Yoga classes for those who want to approach Yoga as a Spiritual Path. During the Hridaya Yoga practice you will connect with your most inner being, finding the silence of the Heart while you enquire on the nature of the Self, finding the perfect balance between effort and relaxation. You will learn to identify the different energy centers (chakras) that are activated by each asana, and you will be introduced to various methods of meditation that will deepen your practice in a subtle but profound way.

      Complete Transformation

    Hridaya is one of those special places that will stay with you for the rest of your journey. It is such a beautiful place with the most pure, gentle creatures you will ever come across. The teachings are filled with such deep love and humility it overtakes you. I fell in love with this place and it was very hard to leave. Sometimes coming home after exciting travels can be tough, but after Hridaya I felt more ready than I ever have in the past to go home. Two months now after arriving home and I still am experiencing Hridaya daily. I continue to meditate and feel the love and compassion all the time that I found at Hridaya even two months later. I recommend this place to everyone, no matter where you are in your path. Come with an open, beginner's mind. Do not accept the teachings, nor reject them, just observe. At the end you can make your own decision. I've gladly welcomed the lovely new additions to my life. Thank you so much Hridaya, I love you all and can't wait to return. <3 Art

      Please read this warning before you visit Hridaya Yoga in Mazunte, Mexico!

    I am disappointed to say that after doing much research and coming to this school with an open heart and the hopes to learn all I could about the yogic lifestyle, I realized that this school only cares about money and not about the safety of its students. The members of the school board provided no assistance for me or held themselves liable after my tent, which was on their campgrounds, was robbed off all my valuables because they have no locked gate or safes for belongings. They never forewarned anyone of the robberies that were occurring biweekly at gunpoint (despite my pleading that they post a warning on their web site) and didn't provide any safety for their students. It has become increasingly obvious to me that the reason this school is so heavily disliked by Mazunte's residents is because they truly only care about making money. As a result of coming here, not only is my whole life in shambles, but I have lost all desire to practice yoga or live meaningfully. Please reconsider before spending your money at this dishonest and greedy facility. If you do decide to visit, PLEASE do not bring any valuables as there is no place to keep them safe. Students have even been robbed while sitting for meditation.
