Free meditation classes in Boston
About the Boston Sri Chinmoy Meditation Group
We have been offering free meditation classes in Boston and Cambridge since 1975. We have also sponsored running races in keeping with Sri Chinmoy’s appreciation for sports. Over the years, our members have typically included health care professionals, office workers, computer programmers, administrators and owners of restaurants and retail shops.
Meditation Boston - Free Class Schedule
We offer free meditation classes at various locations around Boston, most often in Cambridge and Arlington. Class-givers in the Boston area have been practicing meditation and teaching workshops for the last 30 years.
The classes offer practical guidance and inspiration for making meditation a daily habit. They are designed for beginners as well as those looking to brush up on incorporating meditation more deeply into their daily life. We give classes every October and March but also seasonally – so please inquire about our schedule year-round.
We welcome people from all walks of life and at all stages of meditation and hope to provide meditation techniques of lasting benefit to all. To learn more about our meditation classes or the Boston Sri Chinmoy Meditation Group, kindly call us at 617-299-0970 or send a message on our contact form.
Meditation instructors from the Sri Chinmoy Centre
More recently she has opened a practice as a homeopath and natural health consultant (GreenHealing). She offers free meditation classes for the Harvard community through Harvard’s Center for Wellness (listed as “Calm Your Mind, Open Your Heart” on the HCW calendar). Inspired by Sri Chinmoy’s promotion of marathon running as a metaphor for the spiritual journey, she has completed 50 marathons, ultramarathons and triathlons.
Ganapati J. Coleman, Ph.D. became a student of Sri Chinmoy in 1974 and joined the Boston Sri Chinmoy Centre while studying Electrical Engineering at Harvard in the mid-70s, later earning MA and PhD at Brown University in biomedical engineering and electrical engineering respectively.
Born in Africa (Monrovia, Liberia), Ganapati has maintained an ongoing interest in Centre projects there since the running of the first World Harmony Run (then the Peace Run) in 1987 and offers ongoing meditation classes in the Boston area.
Sri Chinmoy in Boston
Sri Chinmoy offered many lectures, concerts and public meditations in Boston, including a public meditation (in 1978) and later an organ concert (in 1988) at Trinity Church. He also offered lectures at colleges in Amherst and on Cape Cod.
Most of his Boston-area appearances were at Harvard, however, most notably a series of seven lectures at Harvard Divinity School in the spring of 1975 published as Earth-Bound Journey, Heaven-Bound Journey.
