How SOL Works
Sahaja Online is a complete online offering of Sahaja meditation. With just a few clicks, you can attend introductory sessions and periodically scheduled meditation sessions in the comfort of your own home. And you’ll also have an opportunity to meditate in real time, with a large group of people logging in from all across the world. All our sessions are led by experienced, skilled instructors who have been practicing Sahaja for several years.
This real-time, guided meditation is very powerful in the context of how Sahaja is actually designed to work. When you connect your individual energy to the energy of hundreds of others, you harness the collective energy of the collective unconscious, or the cosmic energy, and it’s a powerful experience that nourishes your individual energy centers.
Secondly, the subtle energy travels through the medium of ether, the very same medium that cell phone signals, radio waves and other types of signals are transmitted. This makes Sahaja meditation ideally suited for a fully online platform. You are not — and do not need to be — restricted to just a classroom setting where a group of people are perhaps being taught breathing exercises or mind-balancing techniques. This living energy inside you and the energy source you connect to during Sahaja meditation sessions is infinite and all-pervading, working through the power of your attention and consciousness.
Sahaja Online is meant to take advantage of this mechanism to offer everyone across the globe the first complete, free, unique form of collective meditation with an unlimited capacity to expand and increase the number of meditators.
SOL’s mission is universal integration of the global community and helping human beings collectively transcend the boundaries of their homes, cities, countries, cultural backgrounds and faiths. And for them to come together to experience and enjoy the limitless power of meditation.

Finally, as a registered meditator on this site, please know that we only use your information to structure and improve our sessions to accommodate audience profiles and meditator preferences. Location information helps us determine whether there’s a sizable group of meditators in your community or neighborhood so that we can possibly arrange In-Person meditation sessions in the future, if you’d like us to. Such sessions help you learn advanced Sahaja concepts and have deeper meditative experiences. We do not sell any of your information and have zero commercial intent in using any information you provide to us.
The Science and Health section is an ongoing effort to present the growing body of scientific evidence corroborating the various effects of a Sahaja meditative practice and the why behind these outcomes — the physiological mechanisms through which meditation may work. It also includes comprehensive discussions of key cognitive and emotional (e.g., self-esteem, emotional intelligence, attention) and physiological (e.g., immunity, neurochemistry) concepts and attempts to connect the dots in terms of how Sahaja meditation can help each one.
The Spirituality section offers a historical perspective of spirituality and religion in America and explores the differences between the two. It offers you a simple definition of true spirituality that you can apply to your own life and see the results unfold, not as a charade or a “religious facade” driven by dogmas, rituals or societal pressures. It greatly simplifies and demystifies concepts of spirituality by demonstrating that what ultimately matters most is your own personal connection to the higher, all-pervading power. Spirituality has, all along, been very a much D.I.Y. approach in which we can benefit from some basic guidance and teaching by a guru. Sahaja — and Sahaja Online — delivers just that.
If you’d like to know more about the personalities and perspectives of your Sahaja Online instructors, visit the video library where they offer insight into Sahaja concepts and discuss their individual experiences. You can choose to correspond with us on the Contact Page or with your coach for any follow-up questions you may have, or for personal guidance or assistance relating to how Sahaja meditation can help you.

We are all committed to the goals of Sahaja Online, and devoted, every day, to making people’s lives better.
Please keep in mind, however, that we operate entirely on volunteer time and resources, so response times may vary. Our coaches are all also seasoned Sahaja practitioners who can guide you based on their own experience. If your question happens to be very specific to a situation they’ve not experienced, they’ll find the answers for you within the Sahaja meditation practitioner community.
In summary, Sahaja Online is designed to deliver the goods in terms of a complete meditation package available to you when you want it.
