Cultivating Awareness

Kundalini yoga is the yoga of awareness. Our goal is to cultivate greater and greater awareness of our own identity and our relationship with our body, others, our environment and the universe. The practice of Kundalini yoga opens our consciousness so we are able to receive more information and be more present and alert. Simply doing Kundalini yoga facilitates greater awareness. Optimal practice includes silent, "doing nothing" (passive) periods between exercises, and after tuning in (active) where we pay attention. We sit and sometimes lie down and bring our attention to what is happening without trying to influence it in any way. For maximum benefit, we cultivate awareness by monitoring our energy, how we feel, the sensations in our body and subtle changes that are taking place.

In our second lesson on Silence and Intuition we talked about the importance and power of silence. We gave several exercises to cultivate the art of silence. In our next lesson we will discuss Meditation and Choice. The point is that when we learn to be silent, we can actually hear our intuition and make choices that lead us to peace and freedom.
