Meditation Group



For those who come here for a precious time aside from their demanding life circumstances, the Ananda Reno-Tahoe Meditation Group is providing the atmosphere for the experience of self-realization, the awareness that our true nature is joyful, loving, peaceful and calm. Through the ancient practice of meditation and Kriya Yoga, brought to the West by Paramhansa Yogananda, you can expand your sense of harmony and oneness with the universe and your fellow beings and listen to God speaking from within.

Our meditations are open to everyone. From beginners to advanced practitioners, all can rejoice in the experience of sharing, listening and silence. Many evening meditations are guided by a visiting Nayaswami from Ananda Village in Nevada City, CA, which is an intentional spiritual community based on the teachings of Paramhansa Yogananda. Ananda Village was founded in 1968 by Swami Kriyananda, a direct disciple of Yogananda.  

A typical evening of sadhana (spiritual practices) with the Reno Tahoe meditation group includes Yogananda's Energization Exercises, devotional chanting (kirtan), spiritual readings, meditation and prayer.  All are invited to stay for a simple vegetarian potluck following sadhana.

Our meeting space is located at 85 Washington Street in Reno.  The inviting and uplifting space is a large yoga studio on the first floor of the Institute for Inspired Living.  The Institute provides chairs and floor cushions.  There is plenty of on-site parking. We meet almost always on the third Saturday of the month.  Check calendar.
