OTTAWA MEDITATION CIRCLE OF SELF-REALIZATION FELLOWSHIP
For over 50 years, the Ottawa Meditation Circle of Self-Realization Fellowship has held weekly group meditations, kirtans (devotional chanting), readings, and other activities based upon the teachings of Paramahansa Yogananda.
Paramahansa Yogananda founded Self-Realization Fellowship to make available the universal teachings of Kriya Yoga, a sacred spiritual science originating millenniums ago in India.
These yoga methods quiet body and mind, and make it possible to withdraw one's energy and attention from the usual turbulence of thoughts, emotions, and sensory perceptions. In the clarity of that inner stillness, one comes to experience a deepening interior peace and awareness of the divinity within ourselves.
Our circle holds regular Thursday evening and Sunday morning and services. We also hold commemorative services, long meditations, and social events. (Our schedule has changed due to the Covid-19 pandemic, please visit the Meditate with us section for the up-to-date schedule)
All activities are free. Because we are completely volunteer-supported we have optional free will donation boxes at our services and activities.
All our meditation services are open to the public and all sincere seekers are welcome.
