Meditation is one of the most important skills you can
learn. With its practise, you will find yourself becoming
noticeably calmer, happier, and more loving.
Swami Kriyananda, the founder of Ananda, has said, "The
peace of your soul awaits you at the centre of your own
being", and it is meditation—more than anything
else—that will help you discover, and live in, this
Kriya Yoga is the most advanced technique of meditation,
brought back after long dormancy to the world by Babaji.
Our sequence of meditation classes help prepare you increasingly
for this great gift, if you choose to accept it.
The meditation practises we offer are based on the teachings
of Paramhansa Yogananda, as taught by his direct disciple,
Swami Kriyananda. These teachings are nonsectarian and offer
practical solutions to the challenges of modern life.
If you are new to meditation—or have not yet established
a strong daily practice—we encourage you to begin

The technique you will learn is one of the most sacred and
ancient of all yoga practices. If you have tried other meditation
methods before, but without real success, the depth of this
technique can work wonders for you.
