Sahaja Yoga Meditation Australia is delighted to invite you and your friends to a free screening of a unique documentary, “Freedom and Liberation”.
“Freedom and Liberation” is a biography of Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi (founder of Sahaja Yoga meditation) who, inspired by her political parents and Mahatma Gandhi, dedicated her youth to the resistance against the British Empire for Indian freedom.
Throughout her entire life, Shri Mataji kept to her vision – a vision which goes beyond the political freedom of her motherland India, a vision of inner freedom and transformation of each individual, a vision that is worth fighting for and that would take her to the five continents to spread her message. A message that has the great capacity to touch people’s hearts and desire for a better life.
“Freedom and Liberation” is the work of young German director, Carolin Dassel, who shows the many stages of this adventurous life in a very subtle way. The timeless impressions and beautiful music, as well as the original locations and archival material, combine to produce an atmosphere of meditative authenticity. The film has now been shown nationally and internationally.
When: Monday 30 March, 7.00pm
Where: Cinema Paradiso, cnr Ocean View and Schnapper Rd, Ettalong Beach
(70 minutes north of Sydney - Google map))
Admission is free of charge and no booking is required.
We look forward to seeing you at the theatre!
On the weekend of 11-12 October 2008 a Sahaja Yoga seminar/workshop was held in Northern Tasmania at Golden Valley. “Mountainside Nature Retreat” was the venue, set on the side of an old volcano-shaped peak amongst blooming blackwoods, daffodils, and very happy birds.
The Goddess of Spring gave Her best show with warm clear sunshine, morning mist and many flowers. On the Friday night there was a welcome, and then the Theatre of Eternal Values’ production of “Friends” was played, followed by songs and meditation.
This was followed by a sumptuous dinner that set the standard for the weekend. The twenty people who came were very generous with food and marvelled at the quantity and quality.
Meditations and workshops happened on Saturday, using the elements: water for foot-soaking and sitting on the earth. The film, “Freedom and Liberation”, was played, before the usual scrumptious dinner.
Sunday morning’s meditation was very beautiful and strong. A talk given by Shri Mataji in Brisbane was played on video.
The barbeque lunch was very joyous and everyone enjoyed the open air, eating a local butcher’s chicken sausages and patties.
Here are some comments from the people who attended the workshop:
“When I go to meditation groups, after a while I need my own space. I couldn’t stay away from you all!”
“I didn’t know people could be so happy and beautiful. ‘Spirituality’ is usually serious.”
“Her photo fills this room with love and joy.”
One lady was monitoring her acid levels, and couldn’t believe they were neutral after all the food she ate at the weekend!
