Collective Consciousness & The Power of Group Practice

Would you like to find a connection to a source of unending nurturance and guidance? Are you looking to accelerate your personal evolution? And do you wish to share the benefits of your spiritual practice by actively and positively transforming the world?

If so, you’re in good company. The sages of the past shared this desire, and dedicated their lives to fulfilling it by unveiling the mystery of collective consciousness. As they discovered, tapping into collective consciousness is the key to infusing our personal practice with shakti (the power of creative intelligence and dynamic will), empowering us to create a vibrant reality of our choice.

Learn about the quintessential group practices of yajna (tantric rituals centered around the sacred fire) and akhanda japa (unbroken group meditation), and prepare yourself to undertake practice that will transform yourself—and the world!
