Welcome to Meditation Central

This website provides information about the free meditation classes and workshops being offered in Taupō and other towns in the central North Island by members of the New Zealand Sri Chinmoy Centre. Our classes are free of charge at the request of our spiritual teacher Sri Chinmoy, who felt that meditation and the inner peace that it awakens are the innate birthright of every human being. Our goal is to inspire others to explore their inner potential and to discover the many positive and practical benefits that meditation has to offer.

Our free meditation classes are offered in a number of towns in the central North Island each year including Taupō, Rotorua, Kawerau, Tokoroa, and Turangi – and we plan to go further afield as time passes. We invite you to visit our upcoming meditation classes page to view our current schedule, or to contact us to register your interest for the future.
