New Class! Living Yoga: The Eternal Way

Welcome to The Blue Lotus Center

~ Return to Peace ~

Are you ready for more peace in your life, in your family, in our community, and in our country?
Do you want to learn practical, time tested techniques to calm your mind and 
live a wisdom guided life?
Would you like to experience the community support of other sincere seekers dedicated to peace?

If so, then join us at Blue Lotus Center, an oasis of peace for sincere seekers from all backgrounds.

During these challenging times, the Blue Lotus Center is a refuge for those seeking an alternative to the isolation and fear 

that arises when the reactive mind focuses on apparent differences, conflict and lack of abundance.

In the teaching tradition of Paramahansa Yogananda, one of the first Yogis to bring Yoga to the USA,

the Blue Lotus Center offers ancient, practical teachings of Kriya Yoga - the conscious use of our thoughts, words and actions (Kriya)

in the essential peace, love and wholeness that indwells us all the time, everywhere, and even when we forget (Yoga).

If you are ready for a change, 
then join our commitment to cultivate peace in our hearts, our lives, our families, and our world. 

The Blue Lotus Center is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization. All services are offered on a donation basis, unless otherwise specified. 

 Please click here for a current listing of our ongoing meditation groups and classes.

The key to the peace, security, and happiness we yearn for is within our own consciousness. The resources needed to make a difference in the world are hidden in our own hearts.
