Meditation & Lightworker Training – Further Information
Raja Yoga Meditation & Lightworker Training provides spiritual teachings for people of all religions as well as people who follow no religion. There is no dogma, only universal spiritual truths that are accessible through mystical experiences and that have been expressed in virtually all traditions, regardless of religion or culture.
Without seeking to change one’s religion, and without encouraging anyone to acquire a religion, the goal is to enhance one’s spiritual practices, understanding, and experiences of the Divine within oneself and one’s life. Perhaps the only prerequisite belief is that Sacredness/Unconditional Love exists within us, beyond us, and among us.
This class is both for those who are just beginning to choose a spiritual path, who may have recently chosen to be on a spiritual path, and who have begun to commit to it, and also for those who have been on a spiritual path for decades. Even if you have been pursuing spiritual practices for many years, this class may still provide valuable tools such as: vPowerfully effective meditation techniques and energy management techniques vways to describe subtle energy to those who don’t know about life force energy vunderstandings of various spiritual worldviews and their implications for life today vways to understand people’s worldviews in relation to the chakras
van introduction to Divine energies, intentions and Higher Beings who are able to provide assistance, protect us, and work with us for the healing of others
vways to enhance our experience of the Divine personally and for the sake of others
vpreparation for becoming a healer through raising one’s vibration, expanding one’s understanding of the chakras, and connecting with Higher Beings who assist with healing.
The Lightworker aspect of this meditation and lightworker training recognizes that most of us on the spiritual path choose to be of service to a greater good. In class, we emphasize practices that can enable us to be of greater service to the Highest Good of all life.
Uniquely blending Eastern and Western spiritual concepts, Rev. Carol Richardson encourages each person to discover and to share her or his Core Self, and to share as well as to enhance their own spiritual journey. One way that Carol uniquely does this is by affirming the importance of the balance of the sacred feminine with the sacred masculine, honored equally, and expressed within and through each individual.
This class is Level One of a Harmony Training series, creating harmony within oneself in order to bring harmony to others. Level Two is Harmony Healing, a form of energy healing that combines techniques that Carol has been led to learn, through other teachers as well as directly guided by Higher Beings. Level Three is Harmony Coaching, an intuitive form of coaching to enable others to fulfill their Divine potential, finding peace & harmony within.
