1. Initiation into Kriya Yoga is taught in an intensive
weekend seminar. One will learn the system of 18 postures developed
by Babaji for greater health, relaxation and energy; the 6 phases
of the powerful breathing technique known as "Kriya Kundalini
Pranayama" to awaken and circulate subtle energies; 7 techniques
of meditation to cleanse the subconscious, to master the mind and
to bring about realization of the Self and Absolute Reality. There
is no charge for the initiations. The suggested contributions will,
however, cover the average cost involved. The suggested contribution
is $300. At the Quebec Ashram this includes the cost of lodging
|2. Spiritual retreat (2nd
initiation): during a weekend in the country, close to nature,
learn powerful techniques for awakening the chakras, yogic rest,
silence, mantras, meditation during activities, and how to integrate
yoga into daily activities. Suggested contribution: $300 including
lodging and meals.
3. Advanced Training (3rd
initiation): The initiation involves training in 144 Kriyas of meditation, breathing and postures culminating in a series of techniques designed to induce the state of "samadhi", the breathless state of communion with God and Absolute Reality. These 144 Kriyas include specific techniques to awaken the chakras, to develop the latent faculties or "siddhis", and to experience a personal relationship with each of the 18 Siddhas and Babaji. They are rich and diverse and will help to bring about an integrated development on all levels of your being, physically, vitally, mentally, intellectually and spiritually. They do include several which you have already learned at the retreat or first initiation.
