Mental relaxation consists in the ability to free the attention at will from haunting worries over past and present difficulties. Mastery in mental relaxation comes with faithful practice. It can be attained by freeing the mind of all thoughts at will and keeping the attention fixed on the peace and contentment within. By faithful practice of meditation you can divert the attention from worry to peace.” —Paramhansa Yogananda


If you want to learn to meditate, or if you already meditate and want to bring more concentration and joy into your practice, this introductory weekend course is perfect for you.


Peace is the natural condition of the soul. Meditation leads you to that natural inner peace—and more than peace—meditation brings a real, dynamic, and uplifting connection with your higher Self.


Paramhansa Yogananda taught a number of “scientific” techniques of meditation—scientific, because they can be tested through your own daily practice.


Topics that will be covered include:

  • Benefits of meditation and the importance of concentration in meditation and in daily life
  • Exercises to help you increase your energy level and your awareness of the life force energy flowing within you
  • An effective concentration technique brought to the West by Yogananda. He called it “one of India's greatest gifts to the world.”
  • How to sit comfortably so your body is not an obstacle to inner peace
  • A simple routine to help you establish a daily practice of meditation
  • How to keep your meditation practice fulfilling and enjoyable that you will want to continue
  • Resources, such as books, cds and dvds, to help you in your practice at home
