Full moon meditation is a powerful meditative practice that enhances the actual effects of meditation. Basically, during meditation, the mind of the meditator becomes a channel to receive the energies of divine light, love, and power. Although any time of the year is good for meditation, the energy cycles during the Full moon make the meditation process more easier and powerful.
As part of Yogavijnana Foundation (Non-profit organization) initiative, we conduct Free Full Moon Meditation sessions every month. Please check our event calendar to know the schedule for the next session. We welcome teachers who would like to lead this community initiative as well. Use the below links to register.

About Mary Whelan:
Mary started her Yoga journey 15 years ago with her own personal daily practice. This quickly developed into an early morning Sadhana lasting from 2-3 hours. The health benefits, personal growth and serenity of mind she receives from Yoga, has directed her life purpose into a desire to share her passion and ever-deepening knowledge of Yoga to others. She has always taught yoga as a deeply spiritual practice that guides the student to connect with their true self.
Her commitment and interest in imparting the purest yoga techniques to others whilst encapsulating the true essence of this spiritual practice, motivated her to train under a diverse group of teachers from a plethora of countries – learning and collecting knowledge from experts in Ireland, UK, France, Portugal, Italy, Thailand, India and Sri Lanka. From this array of esteemed gurus and teachers Mary formed her own style of teaching that she now offers to students in Ireland and Spain, and online with students from many parts of the world – throughout Europe, Thailand, South Africa and India. Mary teaches classes and workshops to Adults (all ages), teenagers, and children, with a wide range of physical, mental and spiritual requirements. In Ireland she provides Yoga classes and workshops (in-person and online), in a variety of settings including Primary and Secondary Schools, Youth Centres, Yoga Centres and for Mental Wellness Centres run by the Health Services. She also collaborates with holistic experts and yoga teachers, to provide an integrated experience towards better mental and physical health and purification.
Mary holds a Masters in Training and Development and has worked as a facilitator/teacher with both community and corporate groups. Her work involved training and facilitating personal development courses and workshops for over 26 years and teaching Yoga for the past 8 years. She has guided and helped hundreds of people on a journey of transformation through a combination of Personal Development, Positive Living and Yoga. Her caring, creative and graceful approach enables those who attend her classes and workshops to be relaxed, comfortable and feel completely safe as they gently move towards their inward journey of connecting to the true self – through various forms of Movement, Asana, Chanting, Kriya, the Breath and Meditation.

Benefits of Full Moon Meditation
The full moon has always been a sacred time for spiritual practices in many ancient religions and cultures for its magnifying effects on the earth and its people. Besides the calming and uplifting effects of meditation, many other benefits can be obtained through Full moon meditation, such as:
Deeper Purification – It has been observed that the waxing and waning of the Moon has a direct impact on the human mind and emotions. Often during the full moon period, people tend to get more sensitive and witness more emotional and relationship problems compared to normal times of the year. One of the means to neutralize such influences during the full moon is therefore practicing meditation and purification. Meditation in general helps to activate the crown chakra and bring down greater amounts of divine energy into the system, which is believed to be stronger during the full moon period. The effect is, not only improved physical and emotional health, but also clarity of mind, better self-esteem, and greater peace and happiness. Especially, if the meditation is done in a group, more divine energies will flow to the practitioners making it easier to have experiences that might be difficult to have, if done alone and during other times of the year.
Energy Anchoring- Meditation is done in any place, is said to anchor the divine energies that have been brought down, in that place. Especially Full Moon meditation if done in a group can even create a far greater effect as the group’s synergy can bring down more divine energy compared to individual practice. More so, when it is done under a Pyramid structure, as is the case at Yogavijnana which has a pyramid-shaped roof to facilitate the same. Repeated group meditation tends to anchor lots of divine energies in that place, which helps in the total wellbeing of the person.
Spiritual Empowerment – During the full moon, lots of divine energies enter the body through the spiritual cord, which acts as a communication channel between the person and the divine. Full moon meditation is one of the easiest avenues towards achieving it.
Recharged Body – Divine energy when received by the practitioner, will get absorbed by the energy body and the chakras, transforming their quality and improving their functions, and brings about greater physical health for the body. Furthermore, it increases the immunity and defense mechanism, which helps the body fight infection and various diseases in a better and more effective way, thereby providing more stamina and a recharged body.
