Proper visualisation by the exercise of concentration
and willpower enables us to materialise thoughts,
not only as dreams and visions in the mental realm,
but also as experiences in the material realm.

SRF Paramahansa Yogananda AWAKE 2

Sydney Centre devotees have been meeting for meditation in various locations in and around Sydney CBD since the first group was founded circa 1950 on the lower north shore. Our most recent residencies were in Redfern Street, Redfern (1991–2004) and Cooper Street, Surry Hills (2004–2018).

In February 2018 we relocated to our current premises in Mascot. However, we are now seeking to relocate closer to the CBD and with a view to purchasing our own property.

We formed a Relocation Committee to oversee this process. If you know of a suitable property for our growing membership that is close to public transport, or would like further information, you are welcome to email the Relocation Committee.
