About our free courses
Our free meditation classes are designed as an introduction to meditation. Experienced meditators may find the free follow-up courses to be more satisfying, as they delve deeper into Sri Chinmoy’s concepts and allow longer periods of silent meditation.
To take full advantage of the course, you will want to set aside at least 10 minutes a day to practice the meditation techniques.
Following each introductory course, we normally invite keen participants to delve deeper into Sri Chinmoy’s philosophy by joining our free follow-up classes.
Our class givers
Our meditation sessions in St. John’s will draw upon a wide range of speakers from various Canadian and possibly international cities.
Brahmata Michael: I have been meditating with the Sri Chinmoy Centre for 15 years, primarily in Ottawa. Meditation and spiritual practice have added so much to my life: peace of mind, enhanced creativity, more energy, joy, and fulfilment. I believe that these benefits are attainable to everyone, which is why I enjoy teaching free meditation classes. Music is my favourite language. I play guitar and sing meditative songs with the music group, Sangit Surabhi. I enjoy spending time in nature, travelling, and meeting new people, and I look forward to meeting you!
In her spare time, Brahmacharini loves hiking the East Coast trail, practicing yoga, and painting.
Abhijit Emery will be coordinating the 2019 series of courses in St. John’s. Abhijit started the St. John’s meditation centre in 2004 at Sri Chinmoy’s request, and we have been operating continuously since that time (albeit in a modest fashion). The theme of his courses revolves around “Calm the body, quiet the mind, open the heart.”
Abhijit has offered meditation classes in Canada, USA, Australia and Europe. The process of sharing meditation techniques with new people is always uplifting and educational, for the facilitator and student both. Abhijit is usually keen to discuss spiritual topics, in case you have any questions.
Abhijit loves the great outdoors, especially hiking, running, skating, biking, swimming, power-walking & x-country or downhill skiing. Winter is a great season when you are properly prepared for it! (photo shows Abhijit after hiking to a summit across from Taos Ski Valley)
