About Effortless Mind® Meditation

There are many forms of meditation. But as you know if you’ve looked around and tried some, not all forms of meditation are equal.

So what is unique about Effortless Mind?

Since 1970, Ajayan Borys, the developer of the Effortless Mind ® Meditation, has traveled the globe exploring, practicing, and teaching a variety of meditation techniques. Always, during that time, he sought out techniques that are simple to practice and yet deliver the greatest results. Effortless Mind is the culmination of that exploration. It consists of a balanced program of meditation combining various highly effective techniques into a simple, elegant form of meditation that anyone can do. Yes, anyone can do it, go deep into meditation from the first sitting, and effortlessly achieve peace, relaxation, and well-being.

Effortless Mind meditation is nothing new. It is just a name for a systematic teaching of deep meditation and related practices that have existed for centuries, put together in a fresh way, for our times, for the greatest ease and effectiveness. If there is anything special about it, it is unrestricted by any particular lineage or tradition—it draws from the best of many.

Ruchi Ritamavara is certified by Ajayan to teach to the Effortless Mind ® Meditation. 

Itinerary

We take the early morning Shatabdi Express from Delhi to Haridwar. (Flight option from Delhi to Dehradun and transfer to Haridwar) After we check in, eat lunch, and rest, there will be a talk to understand the significance of Haridwar and the Himalayas. We will then spend some time developing skills to enhance our awareness to appreciate the magic of this divine region. 
After tea, we will head to Har Ki Pauri to attend the world famous evening Ganga Aarti. Post the aarti we will walk thru the hustle and bustle of Haridwar and return to our hotel for dinner. 
Spend night at Haridwar

The day starts with an early morning session of asanas and pranayama followed by kriyas to cleanse yourself of negative thoughts and emotions. 
After breakfast, we will depart for a unique meditation on the banks of the Ganges at Har Ki Pauri. The purpose of this mediation is to fully imbibe the experience of  Ganga Ma and understand why millions of people come to this holy river to bathe and purify their consciousness. After the meditation, we will return to our hotel for lunch and some rest. We will then begin our evening with another kriya to help us deepen our understanding of our internal blockages and how we can change the quality of our results, by changing the quality of our thoughts. 
We shall then visit a particular ashram on the banks of the Ganga to immerse ourselves in the wisdom of one of the most influential teachers of Hindu philosophy. 
Spend night at Haridwar

The day begins early with some light yoga, pranayama, and kriyas. We check out and leave Haridwar immediately after an early breakfast and head to the Shakti Peeth of Kunjapuri. Your bags will be sent to the hotel in Rishikesh. 
Kunjapuri is one of the 51 Shakti Peeths in the world. According to mythology, when Sati immolated herself due to the arrogance shown by her father, Daksha towards herself and her husband, a grief-stricken Shiva picked up her body and in rage did the famous tandava across the Himalayas. Seeing Shiva in such a frenzy frightened the Gods. To allow Sati to reincarnate as Parvati, Vishnu sent his divine chakra that cut Sati’s body into 51 parts that fell on earth. Wherever a part of her body fell became a Shaktipeeth. Kunjapuri is where Goddess Sati’s Chest fell. 
We shall walk up (300+ steps) to this divine shrine which on a clear day offers us a spectacular view of the northern Himalayan range of Gangotri, Kedarnath, Chaukhamba, and Badrinath. After spending some time meditating on the divine energy, we shall return to Rishikesh for lunch. 
After lunch, we shall go to the hotel to rest and refresh ourselves. Thereafter we shall proceed to the well known Parmarth Niketan Ashram Ganga Aarti which will be followed by a private Satsang with Sadvhi Bhagwati Saraswati. 
We then proceed for special farewell dinner to celebrate our evolution and growth. 
Spend the night at Rishikesh

Our final day of the journey begins with a some light yoga, pranayama and the kriyas that we have learnt. After breakfast we will once again proceed to the banks of the Ganges to do a final offering of thanks and a meditation.
Thereafter we will return to the hotel, eat lunch, and depart for the airport to return to our homes. We take the early morning Shatabdi Express from Delhi to Haridwar. (Flight option from Delhi to Dehradun and transfer to Haridwar) After we check in, eat lunch, and rest, there will be a talk to understand the significance of Haridwar and the Himalayas. We will then spend some time developing skills to enhance our awareness to appreciate the magic of this divine region. 
After tea, we will head to Har Ki Pauri to attend the world famous evening Ganga Aarti. Post the aarti we will walk thru the hustle and bustle of Haridwar and return to our hotel for dinner.
