"You naturally love those who are dear to you,
and you must learn to give that
kind of love to the whole world."

-Paramhansa Yogananda


This week we will explore ways that we can expand our hearts and minds to the divine presence in everything- experiencing a greater depth in our lives.  A powerful practice of yogic meditation can allow us to "plug into the source" of innate joy in the center of our being- which we can share with those around us. Making space for others in our hearts is a vast, challenging, and rewarding subject. Yet, yoga allows us patiently and compassionately move from the loneliness of separation to sharing a central connectedness which is one of the clearest paths to true lasting happiness.

More than mere techniques, yogic lifestyle is a holistic way to find harmony in spirit, relationships, body, mind, and vocation. Based on the teachings of Paramhansa Yogananda, we will explore how to meet life's challenges with a greater ability to relax, laugh, and even expansive love.

All are welcome and no experience is required!

This meetup is the first in an ongoing, weekly series of meditation group
meetings at this location.

We are a non-profit group and donations are always welcome. If you would like to volunteer in any way, ie: snacks, tea, help clean up, etc.. that would be wonderful!

    I have found in my own experience that practicing Self-expansion this is truly a "way out" from my own all too human worries- and has afforded a richer and more adventurous life too. The "Self" mentioned is with a capital "S" because the yogis are referring here the spirit- which transcends any one individual's personality quirks.

    "A true yogi feels his heart beating in all hearts, his presence in all movement." -Paramhansa Yogananda

    This week we will explore a central yogic topic: expanding one's awareness of other's realities and beyond is essential to knowing the One reality (or heart) within all- and how we can go about doing this.
