Alternate All-Day Christmas Meditation

Keeping the tradition alive with Devotees around the world, we have an 8-hour meditation to inspire a deep sense of Christ-Consciousness to hold the light and open our hearts to the beauty and joy of this season.

For those unable to be with us for the traditional All-Day Christmas Meditation (on Dec. 23 this year), you are invited to join us on this alternate date.
