Communing with AUM - Advanced Practices
God’s nature is bliss, and to share His joy He created us through the Cosmic AUM Vibration. When we commune with AUM, we enter into, and flow with, the stream of God’s love. AUM is Divine Mother manifesting Her love throughout creation.
“Listening to the Cosmic Sound, you’ll find the greatest bliss imaginable.”
Led by Bharat Cornell
There are no dates currently scheduled.
Designed for those with a deep interest in AUM who have a strong meditation practice. For disciples of Paramhansa Yogananda, there will be an additional AUM technique class. If you’re not a disciple and would like to take the program, please call 800-346-5350, and ask to speak with Bharat’s wife, Anandi.
You will learn little-known techniques taught by Paramhansa Yogananda for merging into Sacred AUM. Through visualizations, guided activities, devotional AUM meditations, chanting, inspirational stories, and deep yogic teachings, the Cosmic Vibration will come alive for you as never before.
Saturday will be a dynamic flow of lecture and experiential exercises for deep communion with AUM. You’ll learn how to make your AUM practice more devotional, expansive, and God-reminding throughout the day. You will also hear how saints from all traditions have found God through His Holy Vibration.
Your days will include instruction, guided AUM meditations in nature, guided practices using the gong, and listening to AUM within yourself.
An evening of heart-opening chanting to Cosmic Vibration, interspersed with quiet listening and absorption, will help you draw even more deeply on the sacred vibrations of AUM.
This is a weekend to transform your spiritual life. The course is led by Bharat Cornell and is based on his own reverent study and devoted practice of the AUM technique. Bharat is known for his ability to bring spiritual principles alive through experiential techniques.
After the AUM seminar in Palo Alto, Nayaswami Asha wrote:
“I loved every moment of the workshop. It was superb. Those who have been doing the AUM technique even for decades, came away with deeper insights and renewed enthusiasm for the divine potential of this meditation practice. Beginners were launched into inner space by the power of practicing AUM together.”
After the AUM seminar at The Expanding Light, Teresa, a new guest, wrote:
"The weekend was wonderful. It was even better than I expected. Bharat and Anandi are exceptional instructors and people. Everyone at the center was extremely kind and welcoming. The grounds are beautiful and the food terrific. I loved the Hatha Yoga and meditation in the mornings and evenings. You opened me up to a community of others, whose souls are reaching for God through meditation. I am so very grateful for the experience I had this past weekend. I plan to return soon."
