Happy June 27, 2022 – Trataka (Flame Gazing Meditation)
Good morning Yogis! We are in the middle of a special Upper Limbs week of meditative practices. Today we will focus on Flame Gazing Meditation, a Dharana practice I particularly enjoy during winter with the wood stove. A candle is usually best for summer, and traditional Trataka is practiced with the flame from a candle or oil lamp.
Today’s Positive Practice suggestion
Today’s Daily Yogi Practice is to try a form of Flame Gazing, a Dharana Practice. There are a few different forms of this you can try!
Flame Gazing Meditation – Trataka
- Try an outdoors flame-gazing meditation with a bonfire – read more about campfire meditations here.
- Try the most traditional version – with a candle flame! Make sure you are in a dark room, and set the candle flame at eye-level. Read more about Trataka or Candle Gazing here!
- If you cannot get a candle or real fire today, or if you prefer guided meditations, try this video to accompany your candle-gazing.
