Ajapa Japa is a profound yet accessible yogic/ tantric meditation practice that integrates breath awareness, mantra and visualisation of subtle inner energetic pathways. Over these two days you will learn and go deeper into this meditation practice under the skillful and experienced guidance of Sw. Krishnaprem and Tulsi.
Tutor(s): Tulsi and Sw Krishnaprem
Many meditation practices utilise breath awareness and mantra to beneficial effect. Ajapa Japa takes these fundamentals further in also channeling the breath along inner subtle pathways, allowing the awareness to sink deeper. It primarily uses the natural mantra of the breath - So Ham
- alongside ujjayi pranayama and khechari mudra, all of which will be covered during the two days. The synthesis of breath, mantra and pathway is profound in its simplicity and brings a of deepening of self-awareness, illuminating the deeper levels of mind, and drawing us closer to the timeless present moment.Click here

By using the breath as the anchor, Ajapa Japa is accessible to all levels of meditation experience. The course will enable everyone to bring this far-reaching meditation into their daily lives in accessible and effective ways.
During these two days we will explore and develop all the aspects of Ajapa Japa. You can attend either of day one or two, or both, although there are some prerequisites
if you choose to attend day two without attending day one. Day one
on May 1st will focus on the frontal energetic pathway between the naval and the throat, and also introduce and consolidate the practices of ujjayi pranayama and khechari mudra. Day two
on May 30th will take the practice deeper by exploring the spinal energetic pathway that spans all the spinal chakras, from mooladhara (root centre) at the base to agya (third eye) in the head. Day two needs to be booked separately from day one.
On both days there will also be supportive practices including asana, yoga nidra, satsang (question and answer) and preparatory meditations.
Ajapa Japa is a wonderful stand alone practice that can take us deeper and deeper. It is also a very useful preparation for Kriya Yoga and PranaVidya.

7.30-9am, 10-11.30am, 12-1pm, 3-3.40pm and 4-5pm all U.K. times.
