Meditation Retreats & Meditation Training
Meditation is much more than physical and mental relaxation. Meditation can help you experience your own highest qualities of calmness, joy, wisdom, and love. It can provide solutions for your most difficult life situations.
At The Expanding Light you will experience the depth and power of a meditation technique used by millions of seekers for centuries. You’ll learn the science of redirecting your energy inward, to experience the rejuvenating stillness of meditation.
Your teachers here have devoted their lives to this profoundly useful style of meditation and will guide you from their own love of the practice and love of people.
Whether you have already learned meditation (and practice it or not), or whether you know nothing about meditation– you can benefit from the meditation techniques of Paramhansa Yogananda, which are offered at The Expanding Light.
