Practical Meditation, Part 2: Exploring Eternal Reality

Enrollment is Closed

About This Course

The Practical Meditation, Program of Courses, give an introduction to the knowledge of Raja Yoga. In the first Course, Developing Spiritual Awareness, we explored the first aim of Raja Yoga which is to regain mastery over the self. In the second Course of this series, we explore the second aim of Raja Yoga to recharge the soul by establishing the connection with the Highest, the Supreme.

Yoga can be described as a deep absorption of my mind on a Being that is full of love, full of peace and full of power. This will start to reawaken the original experiences in the self.


We recommend that you complete the first course, Developing Spiritual Awareness, before starting to explore the content of this second course.

Charlie Hogg, National Coordinator of Brahma Kumaris Raja Yoga Centres Inc

Charlie Hogg has practised meditation for the past 45 years. From his own experience he believes meditation is an extraordinary tool to maintain mental, emotional and spiritual health in a world increasingly challenged by anxiety, stress and depression.

Charlie grew up in Melbourne and studied Architecture at Melbourne University but his lifelong interest in spirituality and philosophy meant that he left his architectural studies and traveled through Asia, the Middle East and Europe. During this time he lived in a variety of communities including Buddhist, Christian, and Sikh, Muslim, Hindu, Taoist and more.

In 1975 Charlie had settled in London and came across the Brahma Kumaris Raja Yoga Meditation Centre where he learnt meditation. He also took teacher training and returned to Australia in 1977 to open a Brahma Kumaris Centre in Melbourne.

In 1980 Charlie moved to Sydney where he became the Director of the Brahma Kumaris Raja Yoga Centres in Australia.
