Isha Kriya – A Free Guided Meditation

gratitude for this art by Isha Volunteer Aman Dalal

Isha Kriya is a free guided meditation from Sadhguru. It’s a simple yet potent meditation practice. “Isha” means that which is the source of creation. “Kriya” means an inward action towards that. In research conducted by Harvard Medical School, this meditation has been shown to reduce tension, anger, fatigue, confusion and depression.

Last year, I took some training to become a volunteer facilitator for Isha Foundation to help share Yoga for Beginners and Isha Kriya at schools, universities, libraries, community organization and corporations. Since COVID-19 has us all stuck inside, I thought sharing Isha Kriya here would be a way to continue on that path.

Here’s the video with the practice. I’ll share one simple tip: it’s called meditation practice for a reason. Don’t be concerned if your mind wanders in the beginning. Just choose a time each day and practice. In time, you’ll be able to harness your mind, instead of it ruling you.

With love and kindness (and the grace of my guru!), Karen

Tip: You can access this video and other yoga tools, meditations, inspirational quotes and videos, chants and music on the Sadhguru app.
