Thousands of people from every walk of life have learned to meditate in Ananda meditation classes over the past forty plus years.

Through some easy-to-learn techniques and tips, you will create a meditation practice that will help you to achieve lasting calmness,  a strong center, energized and focused concentration,  solution-consciousness and increased self-confidence.

The series generally comprises 3 classes. Each class includes instruction and practice of the techniques, along with opportunities for questions and discussion.
