WELCOME to the Siddha Yoga Meditation Center. Siddha Yoga is an ancient spiritual tradition passed on through a lineage of Self-realized masters known as Siddhas, or perfected ones. Swami Chidvilasananda, also known as Gurumayi, is the living master of this lineage. Siddha Yoga welcomes everyone with respect and love.

Baba's Lunar Mahasamadhi
This day marks the anniversary of Baba Muktananda left his physical body. The Indian scriptures explain that when a great being leaves his physical body it is not an ordinary death. Such a being merges with Supreme consciousness.

Global 2018 Mahasamadhi Shaktipat Intensive
The Shaktipat Intensive is one of the most significant Siddha Yoga teaching and learning events of the year. It is primary vehicle through which Gurumayi bestows shaktipat-diksha, the awakening of the inner spiritual energy, Kundlini Shakti. For Siddha Yogis, participating in the Shaktipat Intensive every year is a powerful and transforming spiritual practice.

Satsang
Satsang means keeping the company of the Truth. It's a time we set aside to be with others to chant, meditate and absorb ourselves in the wisdom and grace of the Guru. It supports and encourages our spiritual progress.

Shri Guru Gita
This beautiful 'Song of the Guru', a Sanskrit text chant of 182 verses, is traditionally sung every morning in Siddha Yoga ashrams around the world. Its verses describe the nature and transformative power of the Guru-disciple relationship.
