A Jivamukti Yoga class is comprised of 5 tenets: shastra (scripture), bhakti (devotion), ahimsa (kindness), nada (music), and dhyana (meditation). Classes are supported by chanting, breath awareness, flowing vinyasa sequences, alignment exploration, hands-on assistance, relaxation and meditation. Students experience all five tenets as part of the instruction and asana, not necessarily explicitly. Classes are intended as a journey to enlightenment and an expression of compassion for all beings.

What is self-compassion, and how is it different from self-pity, self-esteem or being self-centered? (Clue– very different). How can we use self-compassion to feel more connected to others? What does the new scientific research have to say about self-compassion as opposed to self-criticism? This lecture will discuss self-compassion as it is taught in the Stanford Medical School Compassion Curriculum and present ways to develop the skill of self-compassion.
Quite Place to Unplug: The Meditation Room
Date: Daily 7:30 am – 6 pm
Location: The Meditation Room, United Nations Headquarters
In the original plan for the new Headquarters, a tiny room had been provided as a place dedicated to silence, where people could withdraw into themselves, regardless of their faith, creed or religion, but Dag Hammarskjöld wanted something more dignified. In his efforts he was supported by a group, composed of Christians, Jews, and Moslems, the “Friends of the UN Meditation Room”, who combined their efforts and provided the money for a room worthy of a world organization.
