Our meditation classes are given by members of the Sri Chinmoy Centre. Our members are drawn from many different walks of life who share a common interest in meditation.



Aspects of Our Meditation Classes:


  • Breathing techniques– how to use calming breath to put out the fire of emotions and thoughts.
  • Mantra– how to properly use the repetition of spiritually resonant phrases to calm the mind.
  • Heart meditation – focusing on the heart center, the safest and most effective energy center (chakra).
  • Visualization techniques– guided meditations to invoke a peaceful and expanding inner landscape.
  • Illumining life habits– we are often painfully unaware of our own destructive habits and tendencies that continually bring unrest into our lives. Methods for awareness and transformation of bad habits are shared, as well as secrets for maneuvering through a challenging contemporary lifestyle. Tips are shared for more spiritually grounded and productive living. You’ll learn how to get centered in the city.
