Cambridge – Reviving A Higher Consciousness

5 February 2021

Cambridge (UK): Sanjeevani retreats are organized online for anyone interested in spirituality.  They take place every two months with two-hour sessions each day for 7 days. It will be an immersive week with like-minded (virtual) company, which has been an enjoyable experience for previous online retreat participants.

 

It is also an opportunity for BKs to revise the foundation aspects of knowledge and explore new ways of learning and teaching. In the past the residential Sanjeevani retreats brought together new students with more experienced BKs which created a positive dynamic and all took benefit. This year and last year the retreats have all been online, and we aim to nurture this positive spirit on this new platform for meeting and learning.

 

The next two retreat dates are:

Monday 1st March – Sunday 7th March 2021 (10 am – 12 noon UK time)

Monday 10th May – Sunday 16th May 2021 (6 pm – 8 pm UK time)

Language: English with Hindi and Spanish translation available. Requests for translation into other languages can be considered.

 

The course will cover aspects such as:

 

  • How can I access my higher consciousness?
  • What do I need to know about the subtleties of ego?
  • What is the message of pain?
  • What is the ‘inner game’ in spirituality?
  • It is possible to heal the subconscious mind?
  • How can I spiritually sustain myself?

Included in the sessions will be:

 

  • Meditation experiments
  • Raja Yoga meditation philosophy classes
  • Panel discussions
  • Question and answer sessions
  • Workshops
  • Powerpoint presentations

Enquiries: sarah.fitzgerald@uk.brahmakumaris.org

Embracing the New Norm with Sr Sona Bahri - Tuesday 26 January, 6:45 pm (GMT)

25 January 2021

Change is constant. When the changes are huge, perhaps not so desirable, and last for a long time, it requires courage, trust, and much more to embrace it. Similar to the rhythmic patterns of nature, accepting and living with the New Norm is easier when we can live our lives based on certain aspects that do remain unchanging and provide inner stability and happiness.

 

Speaker Sona Bahri has been practicing and teaching meditation for the past 28 years. Her teaching experience spans the UK, UAE, Italy, Spain, Philippines, Malaysia, Singapore, Australia, New Zealand, Fiji, India, Hong Kong, Kuwait, Bahrain, Qatar, Oman, Turkey, Azerbaijan, South Africa, Egypt, Canada, Iceland, and the USA.

 

Since March 2008, Sona has been teaching meditation in Abu Dhabi, both in the corporate environment and to individuals personally. She currently is the Director of the Inner Space Centre, Abu Dhabi. Prior to this, from 2001 to 2006, Sona held the role of Retreat Centre Coordinator for the Centre for Spiritual Learning, a large 132-acre property in the Blue Mountains near Sydney, Australia.

 

Sona has delivered workshops and seminars on a range of different topics from mindfulness & meditation to stress management and interpersonal relationships and communication. Trained as a professional translator and interpreter, Sona speaks 7 languages.

एक अदभुत और असाधारण जीवन कहानी
A UNIQUE AND EXTRAORDINARY LIFESTORY: IN HINDI
Wednesday 20 January, 7:00pm - 8:30pm

A special evening with Sister Mohini on a unique life story of the founder of Brahma Kumaris. Talk in Hindi with English and Tamil translation.

JANUARY SPECIAL: THE TOWER OF STRENGTH
Thursday 21 January, 7:00pm - 8:00pm

This January is proving to be a time in which we are all being asked to find more strength. As we continue to navigate through turbulent times, what can we do to stay focused, centred and light-hearted.

Join us for a reflective & experiential evening.

Brahma Baba, the founder of the Brahma Kumaris exemplified what it means to live with strength throughout his life. During the 1940’s he and the founding spiritual community lived through many years of ‘lockdown’ in Karachi during the partition of Pakistan from India. Through it all, he had unswerving faith and trust in each day and continued to follow his purpose and that of the budding spiritual university.
How did he stay so 'on task'? How did he use his connection with The Divine to help and support the community he was leading.

Sister Jayanti, European Director of the Brahma Kumaris, and Raja Yoga Meditation practitioner for over 50 years, met Brahma Baba many times. This evening, she will share insights into the way Brahma Baba handled himself and the situations he found himself in and how they are valuable tools for us today.

CREATIVE MEDITATION
Every Friday, 7:00pm - 7:30pm

A sharing of ideas, feelings and visualisation to enhance and develop your inner peace and strength.

BANISH THE LOCKDOWN BLUES - SPIRITUAL TIPS AND TOOLS TO HELP YOU THROUGH: With John McConnel
Sunday 24 January, 2:00pm - 3:30pm

News from Jayantiben in London: 18 January

20 January 2021

On the 18th, everything from Amritvela onwards in London was webcast. Not sure how many joined Amritvela online but certainly the Morning Class had over 500 online. We then had the pilgrimage to the different places around GCH, beautifully decorated with flowers and in many different ways. Baba’s Room is the Subtle Region, the Seminar Room is Tower of Peace, and the Reception area in Diamond House has Baba’s Garden, and the family could meet Baba in each of these places through the webcast. From the 19th, Brahmins can come physically to meet with Baba at Global House.

 

There was just a small number of us for Lunch, including the BK Volunteers who were in the house to keep things going. We then connected with Madhuban to watch the transmission, and receive Baba’s powerful drishti and teachings, and also the very powerful messages from the Seniors at the end, which was very good.

News from Jayantiben in London: 10 January

10 January 2021

On Sunday, the 10th, we had to announce in Morning Class that for the time being this was our last Class collectively and physically in Global House, and that we would let Baba’s children know when we would restart. Although the Government has said Places of Worship can stay open, yet our local Brent Council is saying that 1 in 20 in the Brent Borough actually have been tested positive, whereas in the rest of London it’s 1 in 30, and so the local Council is very, very concerned about the situation, and of course, the Hospitals are overflowing.

 

The local Council can’t set the law, but have made a request to stop collective gatherings. Not just Brent Council but apparently the Mayor of London has also requested that the Government actually close Places of Worship, as these are the places where there is a greater chance of the virus spreading fast. The Council has been highly cooperative with planning permissions for all the construction that we’ve done in the past, and of course maintaining a good relationship with them is important, so we decided on the 9th with our Trustees and our Health & Safety Officer that it’s important we close Baba’s house for Morning Class.

 

However, the premise is that we will be open for Individual Prayer and Meditation so that at least there is less likelihood of socialising or any contact at close quarters. Masks have been mandatory for a while, and generally I think most people observe this, but it’s time for another lockdown. Let’s see how things go.

 

Baba’s family is fine, and Baba’s service continues. The special week of Tapasya with morning and evening Events for Self-Progress had an average of 300 people participating on Zoom, so people appreciated it greatly.

 

Our plans for 18 January will have to be modified, and so we are now going to be seeing how best to let everyone take benefit. Baba’s Room is looking beautiful; the white curtains etc were put up prior to the weekend. Diamond House Reception area has become a beautiful garden with a large image of Brahma Baba standing in the garden, welcoming us and being with us. The Seminar Room has the Tower of Peace set up, so when people come for individual meditation, they will still be able to enjoy these places, together with the Silence Room.

 

OM SHANTI

News from Jayantiben in London: 1 January 2021

4 January 2021

Greetings for a very special year ahead to each one!

Morning Class was full on the 1st, and we had a special Bhog offering to Baba. After class, we started our full week’s Tapasya programme under the theme: “Keeping Safe under Baba’s Canopy.” The first session was on the 1st morning from 10 am-12 pm, with short talks followed by Guided Commentaries by myself, Sister Gopi, and Sister Jasu, together with visuals of Madhuban.

On the 1st evening, we honoured what would have been Dadi Janki’s 105th anniversary, with a very lovely film that Hansaben has made of Dadi Janki with beautiful music, and an interview that has prepared by Godlywood Studio, again in memory of Dadi. So it was a day of Baba’s remembrance, but also sweet memories of Dadi.

OM SHANTI

 

 

Spiritual Effort for January 1st - 8th - Keeping Safe Under Baba's Canopy

3 January 2021

Dear Brothers & Sisters,

 

Wishing you all a very Happy New Year and hoping that 2021 brings good health and lots of happiness.

 

The month of January is a sacred time for us and a great opportunity to come close to Baba.  To help bring us into this beautiful energy during the first week, we have created an 8-day programme over zoom and webcast for the London and UK Brahmin family.

 

KEEPING SAFE UNDER BABA'S CANOPY

Topic: January 1-8 Spiritual Effort for the New Year

Time:  10:00 AM London

          Every day, 8 occurrence(s)

          Jan 1 - Jan 8 2021 10:00 AM

        

 

ZOOM LINK WILL BE THE SAME FOR THE WHOLE WEEK 

Morning Sessions on Zoom: 10.00 am - 12.00 noon (also webcast)

Evening Sessions on Webcast only: 7.00 - 8.30 pm (Conference Hall)

 

How the sessions will be run: 

The morning programmes will be on zoom and these will be webcast also, for those who do not understand zoom. Evening programmes will be on Webcast only, except for the last evening, which will be on zoom.

 

All sessions will be in English with facility for translation into Hindi and Tamil (by selecting the required language on zoom).

 

During morning sessions, there will be breakouts in the zoom sessions. There will be no translation available during breakout (so suggest you stay with the main group, instead of going into breakout).

 

We look forward to being with you over the week.

With much love,

Sister Jayanti and the London family
