Live quietly in the moment and see the beauty of all before you. The future will take care of itself… ―Paramhansa Yogananda  

Surely it is the restlessness of our thoughts, whipped up by the busy world around us that creates thick barriers of delusion and makes the Divine Presences within us grow more difficult to perceive. It is harder, though not impossible, to see God in concrete pavement, heavy traffic, and tall buildings, than in a sparkling stream or a meadow full of colorful wildflowers.

Communion with nature brings out the purity and stillness within us. Relax and immerse yourself in silent inner communion as we enjoy an uplifting, evening meditation in the park. Rejuvenate your body, mind, and soul during this evening of chanting, meditation, and spiritual community.

This evening will include Paramhansa Yogananda’s energization exercises, chanting to open the heart and deepen devotion (harmonium, guitar, and percussion accompaniment), guided meditation, and a closing healing prayer.

Everyone welcome – whether you’re an experienced meditator or brand new to meditation! Bring your own chair, meditation mat, or props to sit comfortably.
