During her 20 years of studying African Dance, Transcendental, & Guided Meditation, Queen Najla found the numerous similarities in these ancient & modern practices. She further realized that the awareness and presence we bring to each task we engage has the capacity to transform it into meditation.
Queen Najla is also an 'AWARD WINNING' children's African Dance and Drumming Choreographer.
Queen Najla invites you to join her in African Dance, where learning the steps and moves, one by one, then combining them become a powerful & passionate dancing prayer: A Moving Meditation Practice. Transcendental Meditation teaches the practitioner to focus the activity of the mind on the breath, the senses, and redirect each thought as they arise: transcending the domino effect of one thought leading to another.
