International Youth Day was declared by the United Nations to remind the public of the importance of youth as a stage of life and is annually celebrated worldwide on 12th August. On International Youth Day, the youth are at the centre of our collective attention.
According to the Western European definition, the youth are boys and girls between 13 and 21. During this period of time, they go through adolescence – the process of finding their own identity – finish school, start a career and leave their parental homes to study, travel or work towards future goals. Due to all of the challenges of this period, the United Nations considers this annual International Youth Day relevant. More about the United Nations International Youth Day 2018.
About our Free Sahaja Meditation Workshop
The workshops will be facilitated by youth, parents and carers who have been meditating for many years. They will explain how meditation works and then guide you through simple meditation techniques which you can practise on your own or with us at our free weekly classes. We encourage everyone to attend, regardless of age.
"Shri Mataji's discovery brings genuine hope to humanity." (Quote by Claes Nobel, grandnephew of Alfred Nobel, Nobel Peace Prize Foundation and Chairman of the United Earth Organization).
In 1970, after studying the field of medicine and focusing on the scientific terminology of the anatomy and human physiology, she started Sahaja Yoga meditation, which she insisted be shared with all, at no cost.
Shri Mataji's core teaching is that within us all lies a transformative potential, which can be awakened using her method. By doing so, we can bring peace and wellbeing to ourselves, our families, our social institutions, our nations and our world.
In keeping with her principles, Sahaja Yoga meditation is now offered in over one hundred countries worldwide, free of charge.
