WHY MEDITATE AT A FULL MOON
The full moon is a time of great opportunity. It brings energy and amplification to the world - for better, and for worse.
If you're feeling sad or angry, a full moon can make you sadder or angrier. This powerful energy amplification is one reason that Emergency Rooms are at their busiest during a full moon. Likewise, if you're feeling happy, balanced or calm, a full moon can be a catalyst for more happiness, balance and calm.
Understanding this truth and the powerful energy that comes with a full moon is why meditating at this time is so powerful and transformative.

MANTRA FOR FULL MOON MEDITATION
"saa ray saa saa, saa ray saa saa,
saa ray saa saa, saa rang
har ray har har, har ray har har,
har ray har har, har rang"
FULL MOON MEDITATION POSTURE
Place the hands flat together in Prayer Pose at the Navel Point. As the mantra starts with "SA RE SA SA", start to bring the palms up the center front of the torso, about 4 to 6 inches in front of the body. As you pass the heart center, begin to open the hand mudra to make an open lotus (base of palms touching, thumbs touching, pinkies touching, other fingers spread open) by the time it reaches the level of the brow point.
As the mantra begins "HAR RAY HAR HAR" turn the fingers to point down, with the backs of the hands touching - in other words, reverse prayer pose. Slowly bring this mudra down the chakras in rhythm with the music until the fingertips reach the Navel Point on the sounds "HAR RANG".
Turn the hands around and begin again.
