Jivamukti Meditation Curriculum

The Jivamukti method of meditation is a mantra form of meditation, instructed in three steps: Choose your seat; Be still; and Focus. Mantra provides the focus. After instructing the three steps, students are guided along these lines: Become aware of your breathing: feel each time there is breathing in and breathing out; don’t try to manipulate the breath; don’t breathe in any special way; you don’t even breathe: instead allow the breath to breathe your body, while you watch from the place of the non-judgmental witness, the sakshi. Use the mantra LET-GO. Silently say the words LET GO with the passing of each breath: breathe in “LET,” breath out “GO.” Let there be a continuous movement of breath through the body and thoughts through the mind while you let go of identification with your body and mind by letting go of each breath and each thought, allowing Self-realization to arise.
