, 2015 - Enrollment Now!

"Without this online course and all the help and guidance I would still be where I was. I have had the book, Lessons in Meditation, for over four years and read it a couple of times but never put the techniques into practice by myself. By doing this week by week with you, one thing at a time, what a difference. Plus watching and participating in the online meditations was and is a blessing I can't even begin to describe. I'm going deeper and deeper into meditation. Thank all of you for doing this. You got me going on the right track."
– David Pugh - recent graduate of Lessons in Meditation

Right from the start, you will learn a simple yet powerful technique of meditation as originally taught by Paramhansa Yogananda. It will help you to be focused and calm, and obtain direct experience of the divine realities within.

In addition, you will learn Paramhansa Yogananda’s “Energization Exercises”, a unique set of exercises that will give you better health, more energy, and an ability to direct the energy in the body at will.

This course is open to anyone who wishes to learn to meditate, regardless of religious or spiritual background. Whether or not you are a new to meditation, these lessons can help you establish and develop a deep, consistent practice and help awaken within the peace, joy and divine love that are a part of your true nature.
