Sunday Service
Jul 15 @ 10:00 am – 11:30 am
Sunday Service @ Ananda Dallas Meditation & Yoga Center | Addison | Texas | United States

The Sunday worship service at Ananda is inspired by the meditation tradition of the East and the ancient teachings of mystical Christianity, with inspirational readings from both the Bible and the Bhagavad Gita. Service includes music, group chanting and meditation, an inspirational talk drawn from the writings of Paramhansa Yogananda, and a unique blessing ceremony called the Festival of Light.

Before service begins at 10 am, you are welcome to a period of silent meditation from 9 to 9:45 am. Those who wish can also participate in a ceremony of individual prayer for freedom or clarity about a personal challenge, called the Purification Ceremony. You may offer that prayer at the altar.

Our hearts and our sanctuary are open to people of all faiths, races, orientations, truth-seekers, people exploring meditation for the first time, and anyone who seeks a deeper understanding of the meaning and purpose of life.

After Service, you are invited to meet the ministers and others in the congregation over snacks in the foyer.

Ananda Yoga

Ananda Yoga @ Ananda Dallas Meditation & Yoga Center | Addison | Texas | United States

Ananda Yoga is a gentle and meditative approach to Hatha Yoga with emphasis on the physical, mental and spiritual benefits.  Learn more about Ananda Yoga here.

Our approach emphasizes dynamic relaxation through the various postures, combined with breathing techniques, affirmations and mental focus. Postures are adapted for individual needs and abilities and we encourage awareness and relaxation rather than physical strain. The result is physical rejuvenation, mental clarity and a deeper sense of inner peace.

Classes are suitable for all levels. Wear comfortable clothing. Please come a bit early for your first class, to meet the instructor and answer questions. Mats and blankets are provided, but you may bring your own gear. 

*Preregistration is encouraged, but not required. Drop-ins are welcome.

Jul 18 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm
Energization Exercises for Chronic Pain @ Ananda Dallas Meditation Center | Addison | Texas | United States

The Energization Exercises were created for the purpose of activating the body cells at the same time balancing the excess energy within us, thus relaxing the body and mind. This unique series of exercises can be done during the day to energize oneself, and at the end of the day for centering and relaxation.

You will be gently guided into meditation after the Energization. Your mind may or may not come to complete stillness but the beauty of meditation is to accept whatever is and to be in the moment. Allowing your mind and breath to be as is in your meditation; you will find yourself rested, calm and peaceful at the end of the session.
