The Six Hour meditations consist of periods of silent mediation lasting approximately 40 – 45 minutes. 

Chanting, accompanied by the temple kirtan group, occurs between meditation periods. 

To provide the optimum meditation experience, silence from all vocal sounds and stillness of physical movements is requested.

The meditation begins with the SRF Energization Exercises which were developed by Paramahansa Yogananda. Participation is optional.

Due to Saturday traffic and neighborhood parking we recommend planning to arrive early.



Learn to Meditate Class
