Free meditation classes in Reykjavik

Our free classes take place every month or every other month. Join, us and tap into your own inner reserve of peace and happiness.

Currently happening…

As well as free meditation classes every month or every other month, the Sri Chinmoy centre organises concerts, peace initiatives and other events that promote inner harmony and well-being.

Our next free meditation class is scheduled for January/February 2019

The first evening of the class will be an introduction to meditation, and after that a free follow-up will be offered. Our teacher, Sri Chinmoy, asked us to give these classes free of charge, to honour the ancient Indian feeling that inner peace is the birthright of every person, and something that should not be for sale.

For more information, contact 697 3974 or 551 8080 or use the contact form at the bottom of the page.

We aim to offer free meditation classes every one or two months – so if you miss this one, please get in touch and we´ll tell you when the next one is scheduled!

Oneness Dream – free meditation concert

Oneness-Dream is a male acapella choir founded to sing Sri Chinmoy’s meditative songs in spiritual and religious places of significance all over the world.

This performance was to celebrate the release of an album created from a tour of Tuscany in Italy earlier in the year – you can hear a little of the music in the video….

SEEKER – a short film in RIFF

Snatak from the Sri Chinmoy Centre here in Reykjavik founded the Oneness Dream choir. Even though he can no longer sing due to having being diagnosed with MND in 2004, he is still the group’s musical director and an enthusiastic participant in it’s tours.

Documentary-maker Sanjay Rawal travelled with the group to Italy earlier this year and the result was the short film SEEKER, which was shown in the Icelandic Panoramas section of the Reykjavik International Film Festival.

What is meditation?

Meditation is a state of being where your mind is still, allowing you to naturally experience a spontaneous sense of peace, purpose and satisfaction.

Meditation is not an escape from the world – quite the opposite. Meditation allows us to face the daily ups and downs of life without letting them affect us. In other words, a daily practice of meditation leads one to develop real inner strength.

Who are we?

We who practice meditation and spirituality under the guidance of our teacher, Sri Chinmoy. There are Sri Chinmoy Centres all over the world. We also hold free and open meditation classes, which have introduced the basics of meditation to thousands of Icelanders.

The Icelandic Sri Chinmoy Centre was founded in 1974. Currently, the Sri Chinmoy Centre in Iceland is located at Ármúli 22, 2nd floor, approximately 15 minutes walking distance from Laugardalslaug swimming pool.

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 the book 'Yoga and the Spiritual Life'
