Sunday Service

Sunday worship service at Ananda is inspired by the meditation tradition of the East and the ancient teachings of mystical Christianity.

Sunday Services involve group chanting, meditation, and an inspirational talk drawn from the writings of Paramhansa Yogananda. We finish with a unique blessing ceremony called the Festival of Light.

Prior to service at 10:30 a.m., join us for energization, spiritual readings and silent meditation from 9 to 10:15 am.

We are located at 221-A Mt. Hermon Road (near Starbucks).
