“The temple of God is within your soul. Enter into this quietness and sit there in meditation with the light of intuition burning on the altar. There is no restlessness, no searching or striving there. Come into the silence of solitude.”

~ Paramahansa Yogananda

Mind Body Experience, 20-22 September 2024

Hall 4, RDS, Dublin 4

The Dublin Meditation Circle of SRF will be taking a stand at the Dublin Mind Body Experience event in the RDS in Dublin on 20-22 September 2024. Copies of Autobiography of a Yogi
will be on sale as well as other books and materials from Self-Realization Fellowship, along with information on in-person
group meditations held by the Dublin Circle. A Guided Meditation, along with a brief introduction to the teachings of Paramahansa Yogananda, will be held each day.

We look forward to meeting you at stand number 66. More information available here.


Paramahansa Yogananda emphasised the value of going on spiritual retreats. One of his teachings is that ‘Environment is stronger than Will Power’ meaning one’s spiritual resolution and efforts are greatly strengthened by being in the company of fellow seekers of God. Many find that the benefit is best experienced by joining a weekend Retreat. The Dublin Meditation Circle organises Spring and Autumn retreats held in Ballyvaloo Conference and Retreat Centre in Co. Wexford. Our next retreats will be held on Friday 4th October to Sunday 6th October 2024 and on 28th February-2nd March 2025. The cost will be €210 per person for the October 2024 retreat and the cost of 2025 retreats will be available later. Each retreatant has a private en-suite bedroom. If you would like more information on attending a retreat, send an email to and please copy your email to
