Welcome to the Minneapolis Meditation Group of SRF

We welcome you to this website of the Minneapolis Meditation Group of Self-Realization Fellowship (SRF).  SRF is an international nonprofit religious society founded in 1920 by Paramahansa Yogananda. The society is dedicated to carrying on the spiritual and humanitarian work that he began—seeking to foster greater harmony and understanding among those of all races, religions, and nationalities, and introducing to truth-seekers all over the world his universal teachings on the ancient science of Yoga.

Please review the Covid Updates page before attending the service. Thank you in advance for your cooperation with the group’s Covid-related policies.
