Long (3-hour) Meditation

All are welcome!

Every Saturday morning, we will have 3-hour-long meditations. These long meditations are a great opportunity to go deep in your practice with other meditators there to help support each other.

These will include Paramhansa Yogananda’s Energization Exercises, Prayer, and Silent Meditation.

There will be Devotional Chanting breaks, so you can come for any or all of the meditation.


Kirtan (Devotional Chanting)

Paramhansa Yogananda said “Chanting is half the battle!”

Inspiring music has the power to open the heart, uplift the soul, and transform the consciousness. Most of Yogananda’s chants were written in English, and are simple and easy to learn. Words will be provided.

Join us for devotional chanting of his spiritualized chants to the Divine, as we lift our hearts and voice in joy, inspiration and Divine communion.
