Frequently Asked Questions

About the practice, benefits and what to expect

About our Online Meditation

What do I need to start practicing Sahaja online?

A computer, tablet or smart phone with a good Internet connection. Or even just a regular cell phone or landline in case you don’t have access to these.You do not need to learn specific postures or sit in a particular place wearing specific clothing. Select a clean room where you can freely focus your attention on the online meditation sessions without too much noise or distraction.

What steps are required to set up my Sahaja Online account and attend various sessions?

  1. Once you’re ready to start attending our online meditation sessions, the first step is to registeryour profile with Sahaja Online by providing a few bits of information about yourself.
  2. Once you’ve registered, you can check our Meditation Calendar  page for Introductory programs and Ongoing meditation sessions. You’re welcome to attend multiple Introductory sessions if you feel you need them, although most people don’t need more than one Introductory program.
  3. If you begin to benefit from our meditation sessions and at some point would like to attend our Intermediate sessions with an Instructor, please visit our Contact page  and submit your request to do so. Or drop a note to one of our coaches if you’re already interacting them.You’ll be asked some questions that help our instructors determine if you’re ready, and will be able to benefit from our Intermediate level sessions. You can typically expect a response within 2-3 days.
  4. Once you’re confirmed for our Intermediate sessions, you’ll receive email notifications along with a link and time to join these sessions. These sessions are not displayed on our Meditation Calendar page and are by email invitation only.

   You may continue our Intermediate-level sessions for many months or even years. Upgrading to our Advanced    Sessions can be handled in a few different ways…

  1. We may periodically send you intimation regarding potential In-Person Sahaja Online Contact Sessions in your area, provided there are other meditators within driving distance who are interested.
  2. If you really want to attend an Advanced Session soon, you can contact your instructor and we’ll try to route you to the closest upcoming session nearby, provided you can arrange your own travel. There are many possibilities for attending these sessions, including large Sahaja events or seminars for advanced practitioners.

How long are your online meditation sessions? What is the typical schedule of sessions?

All our sessions typically range from 30 to 60 mins. We try to have 3-4 Ongoing sessions and at least one Introductory session every week. Instructors may vary across these sessions depending on their availability. We also offer a variety of different sessions and a particular type of session, such as a energy balancing session or a collective foot soak session, may not be repeated each week. A lot of our scheduling is also based on audience preferences and feedback, so please feel free to indicate your preference through our online polls when conducted in our sessions or through the Contact page.

What preparation or set up is required for attending your sessions?

No prior preparation is required. Just start attending and we’ll guide you. For Introductory sessions, you may find that doing some steps listed in our Quick Start Guide is very helpful to help you get going. You will need to find a quiet and clean space, however to benefit from the meditation session.

What are the technical requirements (connectivity, devices etc..) for attending your online meditation session?

We have signed up with zoom.us as the platform for offering our online meditation sessions. This is a proven platform for large audiences with facility to join the session over a PC or Mac, any handheld device or over telephone. You will require necessary internet bandwidth for streaming video, so you should be mindful of this especially if you have a limited internet bandwidth plan or a limited data plan. You can always dial in over telephone into our sessions in such cases. For PC or Mac, a simple one time automatic installation of the zoom application happens for the first time you try to join an online session. For handheld devices such as tablets and smartphones, you need to install the zoom us app. You can use either the link provided or the Meeting ID to join our online sessions on any PC or Mac or Device. Joining via telephone requires you to dial the number and enter the meeting ID. Some of our Intermediate Level Sessions may also be two-way interactive video sessions. For these, you will need a good quality broadband, but typically these sessions are not very frequent.

Can I share the online session joining information with friends or family so they can join even without registering on Sahaja Online?

Absolutely. Keep in mind however that you will need at least one registration on SOL to know when our sessions are scheduled and we also change our meeting information every once in a while. You cannot get this information without at least one person logging in. Besides there are other benefits to registering with Sahaja Online, which you can read here.

Do you keep track of attendees in each session?

No. At Sahaja Online, each person is his / her own master. We do track the overall statistics on the number of attendees and may sometimes do an analysis of the number of people joining from various locations, but there is no individual level tracking. Also, if you’re expecting that our coaches are doing this in order to motivate and mentor you for your progress in Sahaja, they do not. The onus is on you to establish regularity in attending the meditation sessions.

I’m facing technical issues. Who can help me?

Normally, you shouldn’t face any issues as zoom is a proven platform being used by large corporations and audiences. If you are facing issues, then it’s likely something to do with your computer or device. At present we do not have technical support or help available from zoom or Sahaja online. You can always drop us a note or let us know over our Contact page about issues you are facing. We understand that this may not help you immediately in joining a session, but there are always future sessions you can look forward to. You can refer to the zoom.us website for troubleshooting tips.

I’m unable to join a session due to a limit on the number of attendees. What can I do?

We’ll throw our hands up in glee and rejoice if this is the case because this means that our audience is overflowing beyond the limit we’ve planned can attend. That’s a great problem for us to have – more people wanting to attend our sessions. Anyways, on a serious note, it’s unlikely that you’ll face this situation as we constantly upgrade our capacity available to accommodate the expected audience. This means that there is no limit at this present time on the number of attendees. In future, if we hit this maximum limit in our sessions, we plan to introduce the RSVP feature for every session. For now, it’s not required.
