THE HAMPTONS MEDITATION CIRCLE is composed of members and friends of Self-Realization Fellowship (SRF), a worldwide nonprofit religious organization founded by Paramahansa Yogananda in 1920. The aim of Self-Realization Fellowship is direct communion with God in meditation through the practice of Kriya Yoga, an ancient and sacred scientific technique of meditation.
Our circle serves sincere seekers in the Hamptons, Long Island, and New York area, and visitors from all over the world. Welcoming all to a sanctuary of peace with which to help balance meditation and activity in their daily lives, to share and practice the teachings of Paramahansa Yogananda, provide spiritual support to one another through group meditation, and perform uplifting spiritual service to the world. Please see our schedule of weekly devotional and meditation services. All are welcome and there is no charge to attend.
If you are new to SRF, we suggest Paramahansa Yogananda's Autobiography of a Yogi. Copies of this spiritual classic are available in bookstores, public libraries, and online at the SRF Bookstore. We also suggest viewing the documentary AWAKE- The Life of Yogananda. In addition, you are able to subscribe online for the home study SRF lessons.
