Ananda meditation groups are places of spiritual satsang for like-minded souls. Ananda NYC meets regularly for meditation, kirtan and satsang based on the teachings of Paramhansa Yogananda. All are welcome!
The purpose of this group is help you experience the joy of meditation in a relaxed and supportive setting with sincere like-minded souls interested in meditating, learning, sharing, and connecting. You'll learn a practical and powerful method of meditation brought to the West by Paramhansa Yogananda, author of the spiritual classic "Autobiography of a Yogi." This ancient healing science will help you reduce tension and feel more relaxed with improved mental clarity and awakened inner vitality. In addition to their scientifically proven health benefits, these techniques can take you even deeper into an expanding connection with your spirit. No prior meditation experience is required to join or attend.
If you do not know how to meditate, we will teach you an authentic method that Yogananda himself recommended and taught: it is an easy-to-learn, transformative, and profound technique. In addition to a guided meditation, each meeting is unique with a different theme and will usually include: Chanting, Breath work, Spiritual Reading from Inspiring Books, Healing Prayers...
Everyone is welcome to join us. No prior experience is required. We are ecumenical, non-denominational, non-dogmatic, and all-inclusive for those of every religion, race, creed, color, orientation, or belief. The group meets approximately every two weeks.
We have a fairly large distribution email list outside of MeetUp. So typically many other members come to the events, but may not be RSVP'd on MeetUp.
