Sahaja Yoga at the Vancouver Health Show Oct 25-26

Did you know that Sahaja Yoga Meditation has been the subject of research published in various scientific, peer-reviewed medical journals around the world?

Did you know that Sahaja Yoga Meditation has been shown in scientific studies to have positive effects on stress, depression and anxiety, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) in children, drug abuse, epilepsy, asthma and menopausal symptoms, to name a few?

We will be participating at the upcoming Health Show at the Vancouver Convention and Exhibition Centre at Canada Place on Saturday October 25 and Sunday October 26.

Through this health exposition, we hope to educate the public on the positive and healing effects of meditation.  Attendees will have the opportunity to experience meditation at our booth and receive free information on how to meditate at home, as well as our ongoing free meditation classes throughout Canada and around the world.

    Studies undertaken in Australia, Russia, India and the UK have shown the therapeutic effects of Sahaja Yoga Meditation on physiological and mental diseases and disorders. Some of the studies so far published have shown that:

    – Epilepsy: Several months of Sahaja Yoga Meditation reduces the number and the duration of epileptic attacks in patients with epilepsy. It has also been shown to improve the clinical electro-encephalographic pattern of epileptic brain activation (Rai, 1993, Panjwani et al., 1995, Usha, 1991, Gupta et al., 1991, Yardi et al., 2001)

    – Asthma: Patients with asthma and hypertension have been shown to significantly improve with Sahaja Yoga Meditation. The improvement relate to a significant reduction in the number of acute asthma attacks and an improvement in lung function (Manocha et al., 2000, Rai, 1993, Chugh, 1997).

    – Depression: A study in the UK has shown that several months of SY meditation significantly reduced the depressive symptoms in patients with major depression, as opposed to control patients treated only with behavioral therapy (Morgan et al., 2001).

    – Drug abuse: Sahaja Yoga meditation has been shown to have impressive effects on reducing drug consumption in 501 drug abusers treated for a year with Sahaja Yoga Meditation at the University of Vienna. 97% of chronic drug consumers stopped taking drugs, 42% after the first week of meditation, 32% after the first months. (Hackl, 1995)
