    "Meditation simplifies our outer life and energises our inner life. Meditation gives us a natural and spontaneous life, a life that becomes so natural and spontaneous that we cannot breathe without being conscious of our own divinity." – Sri Chinmoy. About Meditation »

About Us »

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, Whakatāne, 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.

Funding For A Vehicle – can you help?

We are in a position where we need to replace our vehicle as it is showing distinct signs of wear. The current workhorse is 20-years-old and has served us well, but it has now done a lot of kilometres and it is time to replace it rather than pour money into it to keep it going. If you would like to help, we have opened a givealittle crowd-funding page in the hope of raising some cash for the purpose of staying mobile and continuing to offer free meditation classes in the central North Island. Anything will help and be very much appreciated. Thank you!
