I'm bringing a real meditation table and mala so everyone can see what the setup looks like. Both of these simple tools are powerhouses to help strengthen our practice. We'll discuss the "nuts and bolts" of the meditation process. What are the best ways to sit? What techniques should we use? What is mindfulness? Is meditation an exclusively "Buddhist" practice? There will be a short meditation to beautiful music.

"There are dimensions of light, perfect light, on the other side of sense experience and mental experience. There are dimensions of ecstasy, worlds where time does not exist, and there's nirvana, the central nexus from which all this comes, the creator, enlightenment." - Rama - Dr. Frederick Lenz.

New  Rama Speaks cover front

Rama Speaks: The Teachings of Rama-Dr. Frederick Lenz, by Lawrence Borok, is an engaging and excellent book on the pivotal teachings on self-discovery and enlightenment, through Rama's transcribed teachings. Recommended for beginners and seasoned practitioners. I have already purchased copies for friends. Highly Recommended!


The beautiful and insightful new film from Magic Dog Creative, "Women and Enlightenment," is now featured on the "Dr. Frederick Lenz, Rama - Official Channel" on YouTube. Quotes from Rama's talks are combined with a strong narrative and compelling images. The world is out of balance, and this film captures the root cause as Rama taught it.

The Light Mind app displays a fresh new take on Rama's wisdom. Text, audio and beautiful pictures create an immersive experience.
