Mata Yogananda Mahasaya Dharmaji’s mission in founding the Self Realization Meditation Healing Centres is to provide support to the general public and to those who are suffering on any level, to assist those who seek inner knowledge and personal growth in the pursuit of peace, health and happiness through meditation, yoga and spiritual living.

Whether through Pure Meditation, Progressive Counselling/Coaching and Natural Spiritual Healing, community, teaching, Retreat, prayer or other disciplines, we seek to help people find balance, peace and joy in life, respecting their circumstances and their faith if they claim one. We strive to help integrate body, mind and spirit for optimal health for each individual. The Centre itself is set in a serene setting, with a pond and beautiful gardens.

How the Centre benefits those who come:
In addition to a full programme of courses, the Centre is open for people in need of peace and healing at any time. We gather every morning and evening for Pure Meditation and silent prayer, with Winged Prayer for those in need at 9pm. Special gatherings include chanting at 8:15pm Friday nights and teachings from Mata Yogananda Mahasaya Dharmaji at 7pm Sundays.
Natural Spiritual Healing, Progressive Counselling/Coaching and Yoga Therapy are readily available.
Mata Yogananda Mahasaya Dharmaji through God’s grace has trained the spiritual teachers who work at the Centres, and we aim to always practise the universal teachings of Unconditional Love. Daniel Francis is an international Spiritual Teacher who resides at the Mother Centre, and teaches abroad, spreading the Light.
The teaching of Pure Meditation is the cornerstone of Mata Yoganandaji’s mission. It is taught by experienced teachers to small groups, to those who seek inner peace, fulfilment and intuitive wisdom in today’s busy world. The Course Programme also includes professional training courses to Diploma standard in Natural Spiritual Healing, Progressive Counselling & Coaching and Transformation Hatha Yoga. Other Courses on offer include Pure Meditation Foundation taught one to one or in a group; Animal Healing; Yoga – taught one to one or in classes; short courses including Being Still & Mindful for Children, Stress Management, and Spiritual Truths of Death and Passing. A full programme of Retreats is on offer, including Personal Development Retreats, technology-free Retreats and also Silent Retreats at Easter and Christmas. A New Year Gathering is on offer each year for those wishing to greet the New Year in a peaceful and spiritual way.
Our courses share spiritual truths, not dogma, that resonate in all faiths. For the full schedule, please see our Course Programme.

What you might not know: It’s easy for people to dismiss such an organisation as dogmatic, cultish, or manipulative. These characteristics are the opposite of what we teach, and we encourage people to call and ask, come and see, experience and learn, take what fits for them. We seek to find the common spiritual ground of each individual, that place where we as humans all come together, despite our upbringing, our education, our gender, race or age, or our religion. In lighting a spiritual path, we do not try to change people, we strive to empower them to change and liberate themselves. They don’t have to give up their everyday lives to grow, and in fact they can enjoy those lives even more.

How can we help: All are warmly welcomed – to take courses; receive Natural Spiritual Healing, Progressive Counselling/Coaching, Spiritual Guidance; pray and meditate; spend a retreat at the Centre; stay for bed and breakfast; and volunteer. Volunteers are needed all the year round.
