The Oneness-Heart Centre – our meditation centre in Queens

Oneness-Heart Centre 2.jpg

The Queens meditation location, named The Oneness-Heart Centre by Sri Chinmoy when he inaugurated it in 2004, was created for the ethnically diverse community in Queens.

Introductory meditation classes are offered in English, Spanish and Bengali. Advanced meditation courses are also taught for those who wish to deepen their meditation practice. The Centre is easily accessible through public transportation.

Students of Sri Chinmoy, as well as those just beginning to meditate, meet weekly for group meditation, singing and just plain fun at this small and beautiful centre. Once a week sessions where students learn to sing and play Sri Chinmoy’s music are a big draw. Newcomers can also attend meditation events at the nearby beautiful meditation garden.

Other events we offer

Sri Chinmoy also felt that sports and meditation were natural complements to each other. We offer many running races in the local area where the public can come and participate or cheer on runners – the Saturday morning 2-miler at nearby Jamaica High School, or the variety of races we put on in Queens, Brooklyn, and the Lower Hudson Valley..

Sri Chinmoy’s conviction that human potential is limitless has also inspired the creation of  the annual 3,100 mile race – the longest race in the world – which takes place nearby every summer.

We also frequently offer free concerts of meditative music, and other artistic and cultural events.
