Paramahansa Yogananda, founder


Welcome to the Santa Rosa Meditation Group of Self-Realization Fellowship. For more than forty years our group has been participating in Paramahansa Yogananda's worldwide work by regularly meditating and seeking God together.

We meet in a comfortable office space which we have transformed into a beautiful chapel. This central location is easy to find and has plenty of well-lighted parking. The chapel room is on the second floor, accessible by stairs only.

In our chapel we hold meditation services every Tuesday and Thursday evening, and Saturday mornings. Two or three times a month we also have a Sunday morning Readings Service (see schedule) which is especially appropriate for people new to these teachings. Our services include prayers, chanting and silent practice of Kriya Yoga meditation. We also join the Worldwide Prayer Circle in praying for healing and world peace.

In addition, we occasionally hold potluck social gatherings at members' homes or outdoors at one of Sonoma County's many beautiful parks.

If you are new to our group or SRF, we extend our spiritual friendship and invite you to join us in the peace and joy of deep meditation and spiritual fellowship. Paramahansa Yogananda specifically encouraged students to participate in regular group meditation to strengthen concentration and spiritual aspirations. Please join us as often as you are able to attend.

"The Kingdom of God is just behind the darkness of closed eyes, and the first gate that opens to it is your peace." - Paramahansa Yogananda

Everything else can wait, but your search for God cannot wait!
