Founded by Mata Yogananda Mahasaya Dharma, the Centre is run with unconditional love, without dogma, encouraging all who come here to develop their full potential. Ongoing support is always available.

The Centre teaches PURE MEDITATION, incorporating the highest Raja and Kriya Yogas. This meditation has been passed down by a line of Masters, Self-Realized Souls and is brought to us now by a living Master – Mata Yogananda Mahasaya Dharma. Ancient and sacred, yet ever-new and scientific, Pure Meditation is perfectly suited to busy 21st century lifestyles. Pure Meditation enhances the process of evolution and is given by the Masters for this purpose. This should not be confused with visualization, relaxation or other meditative states. By the practice of Pure Meditation we are consciously tuning in with Cosmic Consciousness, withdrawing from our five sense telephones, until we can transcend to a state of extreme awareness, with blissful joy. In this way every aspect of our lives becomes enriched, for Pure Meditation is our spiritual food. It gives us all we need to live our life in peace, with love and wisdom. It helps deepen our work and play. We become at one with Life.

Pure Meditation is taught at the Centres as a 5 day course under the loving guidance of Mata Yogananda Mahasaya Dharma. In this way you are able to learn and absorb the techniques on a deep enough level and truly find the peace. This is followed approximately 6 months or more later by a 2 day Meditation Refresher, where all who are ready may receive the Kriya ONE Breath. The course also covers skills pertinent to dealing with busy lifestyles and for looking after your energy. We pass on spiritual knowledge that will deepen your understanding in all areas of life and help you to become Master of yourself on every level.

Meditative Peace – as a valuable first step towards learning the Pure Meditation, the Centre also teaches Meditative Peace, which only takes an hour to learn either by individual appointment or in a group. This technique will enable you to reduce stress, improve concentration and bring relaxation.
