The hallmark of our Christmas season, Yogananda called the 8-hour meditation our true spiritual Christmas. This is the time we tap into the open-hearted energy of this blessed time of year, taking it inward to renew our spirits in the Christ Consciousness. It creates the perfect conditions for us to truly experience the sacredness of this holy season. Come for any portion or all and let the deep peace and joy of inner communion permeate your whole being, baptizing you in the true spirit of Christmas.

“Christ is born in the cradle of each loving heart. So you must prepare your consciousness to receive him. Instead of enjoying just the material aspects of this Christmas celebration, make your heart a cradle where Christ can be born again. Celebrate Christmas upon the altar of the vast inner silence…”
– Paramhansa Yogananda

8–hour Christmas Meditation 2022
(All times are approximate): May God and Gurus bless your meditation deeply. In consideration for others, we ask that you observe the following things: Please do not enter during meditation. Wait for the chanting breaks before you enter the temple. The vibration builds throughout the day, so stay all day if you can. All times, enter and leave as quietly as you can. We will be in silence during the day and throughout the sangha house and grounds. Thank you and have a blessed meditation!
