About our meditation classes

Practical lessons for all levels

In our workshops you learn how to integrate meditation into your life. You receive exercises for practice at home, such as breathing exercises, visualisations and mantra’s. We also offer practical meditation tips about creating your own meditation space in your house and how to develop the discipline to meditate every day. And we talk about the spiritual dimensions of meditation and how to make inner progress in your life.

Offering free meditation classes is an inspiration given to us by our teacher Sri Chinmoy. He taught us that meditation is a birthright that cannot be bought or sold. In line with ancient Indian spiritual traditions we therefore offer all our classes free of charge.


Do you need happiness? Then do just three things:
Meditate regularly.
Smile soulfully.
Love untiringly.
