Open House & Meditation Intro. Evening!

New members, beginners, and experienced meditators alike are all invited to participate in an evening of spiritual and social connections. Learn about meditation and yogic lifestyle to aid in experiencing a deeper connection within while meeting like minded friends.

The Ananda Meditation Group is unique: exploring energy awakening exercises and meditative hatha yoga postures as techniques to help increase focus, and expand the body’s life-force, with a powerful healing effect on one's state of consciousness. Our evening's practice will culminate with a guided meditation.

Meditation is one of the most natural and rewarding of all human activities. It gives direct, intuitive experience of higher realities, and is a supreme method of deepening one's spiritual awareness of the "oneness" of all with inner clarity, joy, and compassion. Learn the ancient and effective techniques of meditation from the teachings of the yoga master Paramhansa Yogananda to not only expand your own sense of inner harmony, but also to share that increased calmness in your life with others. There will also be ample time for Q&A, socializing, and food afterwords!smile

    A special surprise in the person of Swami Kriyananda attracted a very large turn-out of spiritual seekers with good questions that the Swami answered with practical insights. The usual good vibes of the group were multiplied by thousands.

    What a surprise pleasure to have Swami join us and give a spirited talk. His light shines the way for all of us! I look forward to sharing in his insights in the months to come. Namaste.

    I found this meeting very interesting. As an introduction to the group meeting it was a little overwhelming because I was a little lost as far as the customs, practices. But it was inspiring to listen to the talk and I really had (and continue) to think about it. Thank you!
