Take Your Meditation to a Deeper Level

Deepening Meditation“Meditate more and more deeply, until calmness and joy become second nature to you. To be ecstatic is not difficult. It is thinking that it is difficult that holds you apart from it. Never think of divine joy as distant from you, and it will be with you always.” — Paramhansa Yogananda

This course covers all aspects of meditation. It offers guidance on how to refine our meditation practices, until eventually, we can go beyond technique, entering into the deep stillness within. It is taught by some of Ananda’s most treasured teachers — each bringing nearly 50 years of meditation experience to each presentation.
