Advanced Meditation Classes
The Chakra Class is usually offered twice a year, in the Spring and Fall. It is taught by Nirmala and is based on Gurudev Shree Chitrabhanuji’s book, The Psychology of Enlightenment: Meditations on the Seven Energy Centers. An eight week class, each week focusses on one of the seven chakras, with a mantra for each chakra.
Prerequisite: at least two months of mantra meditation.

The Brow Class  is another advanced meditation class, channeled by Chetana, in which elements of Jain and Hindu meditation traditions are integrated. Given by Nirmala, the focus is on meditating at each of the seven chakras using the mantra for the brow chakra.  Mudras, yantras and affirmations augment the mantra. The class is given in four four week sessions, Brow I-IV. For more information, contact Prachi Thiel at 734-417-5804,
Prerequisite: Chakra class at least once.

Meditation Sponsors
Many people attending Nirmala’s Introductory Meditation Lecture have asked if they could call someone or talk with someone if they had questions about meditating. So, we have decided to offer a Meditation Sponsor to each person attending the lecture. After the lecture, you will be given the name and phone number of a Lighthouse member who will be your Meditation Sponsor. You can call her or him with any questions or concerns you have about your meditations. You will exchange phone numbers with your sponsor.
