If you are meditating properly, you will get spontaneous inner joy. Nobody has given you good news, nobody has brought you any gifts, nobody has appreciated or admired you, nobody has done anything for you, but you will have an inner feeling of delight.Sri Chinmoy
About our meditation classes
Our meditation classes are open both to meditation beginners and to those that have tried meditation before and are seeking inspiration to deepen their practice. We hope to help you develop your own meditation practice and provide an inspiring environment of a spiritual community where you can practice your meditation with other experienced meditators and spiritual seekers.
Seattle-meditation.org classes are taught by experienced instructors from the Seattle Sri Chinmoy Centre, a meditation community offering free classes, public concerts, sport and inspirational events in the Pacific Northwest for over 35 years. All our events are offered free of charge, in harmony with the ancient Eastern principle that inner peace is not a commodity, but our birthright.
The Sri Chinmoy Centre
Our meditation center is one of the many dozens of meditation centers founded by Sri Chinmoy (1931-2007) around the world. With Sri Chinmoy’s encouragement and his idea that the path to self-discovery is one’s free birthright, we started offering free meditation classes in the Pacific Northwest in 1974.
Sri Chinmoy was born in 1931 in Chittagong, Bangladesh (then India) and lived in New York from 1964 to 2007. Sri Chinmoy was a renowned and prolific author, artist, poet, athlete, spiritual leader and a visionary of world peace.
Meditation classes for businesses and non-profit organizations
In addition to events organized directly by our meditation center our instructors can also give a talk or a workshop at your non-profit organization, business workplace or a special event. This short meditation course will cover simple and efficient meditation techniques and, as our other offerings, is free of charge.

No price is too great to pay for inner peace. Peace is the harmonious control of life. It is vibrant with life-energy. It is a power that easily transcends all our worldly knowledge. Yet it is not separate from our earthly existence. If we open the right avenues within, this peace can be felt here and now.—Sri Chinmoy, from 'Yoga and the Spiritual Life'
