Heartfulness meditation is a state of mind, a way of being that enriches self-awareness that we carry with us all the time. We need to prepare our body and breath to enter into the state of meditation. Yogic lifestyle (dinacharya) practices prepare our body and mind for meditation. In this webinar we will demonstrate the dinacharya practices.
