Thursday Morning Sadhana
The Berkeley Shambhala Center
The brilliance of Kundalini Yoga is that the combined techniques do not ADD effectiveness but MULTIPLY with each other for a THOUSAND FOLD increase in effectiveness. Since you've attended my class before you know how powerful a little over an hour of Kundalini Yoga can be. Now imagine practicing for 2 1/2 hours. Now imagine practicing in a Buddhist sanctuary graced with the energy of many great meditators in Berkeley. And now imagine doing in the pre-dawn hours where rare quiet energy enhances the effectiveness of all of the above.
Our community Sadhana is practicing Thursdays at 4:30am-7:00am in downtown Berkeley.
