About our courses

All our workshops are free of charge.  Classes are based upon Sri Chinmoy’s philosophy and his approach to meditation. 

“Your mind has a flood of questions.  There is but one teacher who can answer them.  Who is the teacher?  Your silence-loving heart.”

“Do you want to be happy?  Then do not overestimate the power of your mind and do not underestimate the light of your heart.”

“Meditation means our conscious growth into the Infinite.  When we meditate, what we actually do is enter into a vacant, calm, silent mind and allow ourselves to be nourished and nurtured by Infinity itself.”

-Sri Chinmoy
