About our courses

  • We offer a structured series of meditations. The upcoming events will be held in English, if not everyone speaks Icelandic.
  • We also offer meditation mornings every Friday in May, June & July, read more…
  • Everything we offer on our website and our courses is free of charge. For us, giving these classes is such a fulfilling experience, and we feel grateful and privileged to be able to share this gift with you.
  • Our approach to meditation is not religious, but it is spiritual: it helps you discover who you are.

The initial classes are for everybody, no matter what level of meditation they are at. After the initial events are over, we may hold an ongoing series of classes, where we further explore the secrets of meditation and spirituality.

Who (and where) are we?

Our centre was founded in 1974, and since then has introduced the basics of meditation to thousands of Icelanders through our free meditations, classes and workshops.

At the request of our spiritual teacher Sri Chinmoy, our classes are always given free of charge.

More about us

Currently, we are located at Ármúli 22, 2nd floor, approximately 15 minutes walking distance from Laugardalslaug swimming pool.

Also – If you happen to be in the city centre, one good way to get a ‘feeling’ for our Centre and the type of meditation we offer is to pop in to Garðurinn (Ecstasy’s Heart-Garden) café or the Sangitamiya music store, both located on Klapparstígur. These are both owned and staffed by members of our meditation centre, and aim to have the same kind of meditative vibration that we have in our centre. The staff are always very happy to talk about meditation and answer any questions you might have.

Our meditation teacher, Sri Chinmoy, asked us to give these classes free of charge, because true inner peace is the birthright of every person, and something that should not be for sale.

Other things we do…

  • 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!
  • We also regularly organise concerts of meditation/mantric music and other cultural events throughout the year. If you’d like to stay informed, let us know via the contact form…

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.
