Claim Your Jewel Of Abundance Now!

Paula Whang-Ramos


"Go in. Sit. Remember. It only takes a moment to reorient our attention. When we do, we open ourselves
to the graceful flow of inspiration, strength, insight, and peace.  It's there within us, awaiting our conscious recognition."

Yogacharya Ellen Grace O'Brian, The Jewel of Abundance, pg. 71



We are blessed with 2 opportunities to realize abundance in action in our lives. First, this Friday is a soul nourishing evening with Yogacharya O'Brian. Yogacharya will be sharing readings and inspiration from her new book, The Jewel of Abundance. We will also have an opportunity to chant with the master musicians and students of Baba Hari Dass and our beloved spiritual friends from Mt. Madonna Center. This event will be held just over the hill in Santa Cruz. Invite your friends and gift yourself an evening of spiritual abundance! Please contact BLC asap if you are available/interested in carpooling. To register online and receive the discounted admission, click here.

Also, in divine timing, this Wednesday at BLC, we will begin our spiritual book study of The Jewel of Abundance. Join us as we open into the rich inspirational teachings and practical applications of ancient yogic teachings to intelligently guide us into the jewel of abundant peace, love and wholeness that indwells us all. Bring your spiritual journal and inspired themes, inspirational quotes, a useful practice, personal insights, and questions revealed to you through your reading of each chapter. On each page, look for that jewel of peace, joy and wholeness waiting to be remembered by you now. Join us for a time of meditation, inspiration, and personal reflection in our supportive spiritual community. All are welcome.

Meditate with us at Blue Lotus Center. Awaken, study and be inspired in a meditative community committed to live in the jewel of abundance that indwells us all.

Attuning To Higher Guidance

Paula Whang-Ramos


"With the skills of superconscious meditation, we learn to direct our attention at will,

hone our power of discernment, and inwardly attune to higher guidance."
~Yogacharya Ellen Grace O'Brian, The Jewel of Abundance, pg. 121



Imagine being able to witness your emotional reactions without becoming overwhelmed by them. Imagine being able to realize life stories and roles you have lived without being limited by them. Instead, what would our lives be like if we could actually hear and be guided by the still small voice of clarity and integrity that indwells us all? Meditation is the ancient time-tested practice that helps us have ears to hear inspiration and insight into the inner peace, love and wisdom that waits to be heard by us. From this deeper level of awareness, we can learn to recognize when we are getting caught up in our stories of limitation, and to choose a more spiritually conscious way of responding instead.

Join us this Thursday for "Learn to Meditate" class and learn a simple, ancient technique of meditation, or join us and refresh your meditation practice. Begin or continue reading Jewel of Abundance, in preparation for our upcoming book study group, Living In the Flow Of Abundance. In this group, we will dive into meditation practice and meditative living in the essential wholeness that underlies every single circumstance, experience, relationship, story and role in our lives. Meditate, study and be inspired in a meditative community committed to live in the jewel of abundance that indwells us all. Contribute to the realization of peace in our minds, our hearts, our families, our community and our world. Individuals from all and no traditions are welcome at all gatherings. All are welcome.

 Our Power To Choose Love Or Fear

Paula Whang-Ramos


"Arriving at that chasm stretching between the small self and the great Self is a moment of profound grace.

What does this moment hold? Love and fear, Self-knowing and doubt, courage and resistance.
Which will we choose?"
~Yogacharya Ellen Grace O'Brian, The Jewel of Abundance, pg. 92



In Yoga, the opportunity to choose love, Self-knowing, and courage is always available to us. This is because these divine qualities are always present within us. They are not present during good times and absent during challenging times. As individual expressions of Wholeness, these Wholeness qualities flow through our lives all the time. Regardless of where we are on our path of awakening, this choice is offered to us in each thought, word, action and moment. Will we choose to live in the inherent peace of Yoga Oneness, or will we choose to live in the doubting mind's fear of the unknown and resistance against that which it cannot control? We have the power to choose this trajectory in our lives.

This month save the dates and join us at BLC for the upcoming spiritual book study of Yogacharya O'Brian's newest book, The Jewel of Abundance. We will explore how the ancient teachings and practices of Yoga can help us learn to choose to live in the love, wisdom and courage that we are and that is needed in the world now.

Join us at Blue Lotus Center. Wake up, grow up and show up with us. Experience a time of meditation and spiritual contemplation. Study, meditate, and grow with others devoted to thriving in peace, love and wisdom. Contribute to the realization of peace in our minds, our hearts, our families, our community and our world. Individuals from all and no traditions are welcome at all gatherings. All are welcome.

“If anything disturbs your peace, practice having faith that divine grace is already actively at work restoring wholeness and well-being.

Then make any necessary adjustments in harmony with that insight.”
