About JCO Sessions

What do you talk about on your sessions?

……so sometimes at JCO you might hear a discussion about the energy (Universal Consciousness, God, Paramatma) or something to do with the teacher (Guru, spiritual teacher, spiritual guide, medium) or about someone’s experiences…sometimes you might just hear a lot of laughter. 🙂

Do I also have to talk on live sessions?

Some of us like to talk a lot….others are happy just to be quiet and listen…..there are no does or don’ts here, all is good 🙂

Do I have to agree with what others share?

Noooo! Once again, there is no does and don’ts at JCO… The main thing is that we honour all perspectives and respect each others views and opinions. We recommend that people take away from the sessions what benefits them and for the parts they don’t relate to ….. just know that hopefully it is benefiting someone else.

About Meditation

What meditation technique do you practice?

The meditation practice that we have chosen is Samarpan Meditation. Samarpan Meditation is not based on any religion so it can be practiced by anyone. There are no does and don’ts with this meditation; the belief is that once you start meditation, what is good for you will remain and what is not good for you will automatically fall out of your life.

Why have you selected Samarpan meditation as your main one?

To be honest, we believe that when it comes to meditation then its neither you or us are selecting anything here… Meditation practice is one’s Soul journey, so we leave it for the Soul to decide what is best for us. You (your inner-you) is to decide whether this meditation practice is for you or not, once you try

How do you do mantra meditation?

We begin our meditation by chanting, or listening to audio of the Samarpan Mantra. It is a beautiful tool to swiftly and smoothly take us into a deep meditative state and to connect us to the natural energy of Universal Consciousness. This mantra helps us to connect with universal energy, and it has strong effect and is full of vibrations. The Samarpan Mantra is being chanted and used in meditation centers all over the World. People from different backgrounds and cultures meditate through this Mantra.

After chanting the mantra we sit for half an hour crossed legged on the floor, allowing our thoughts to slowly disappear.

Do you have a spiritual teacher?

Yes, Samarpan Meditation practice has a spiritual teacher. His name is Shree Shivkrupananda Swami. He spent many years in the Himalayas receiving knowledge from Gurus, Sages and Saints who taught him this meditation that has been practiced in the Himalayas for over 800 years.

Is it important to have a spiritual teacher in this meditation practice?

While the focus of this meditation is on experiencing Universal Energy, for some of us our spiritual teacher is a very important; for others, neither the energy or the teacher is important – what is important is that they just feel good doing the meditation.
