Meditating at sunset

True meditation is a way to commune with the divine within yourself. In order to touch this deep, inward place, it’s invaluable to learn in a calm and focused environment.

Over the past 40 years, thousands of people have meditated here, creating a uniquely peaceful atmosphere. We offer you the practical, in-depth approach to meditation brought to the West by Paramhansa Yogananda. These techniques can take you beyond relaxation to a profound connection with your own higher Self.
