The Mystic Heart Interspiritual Meditation Program at Chautauqua

We serve Chautauquans by providing opportunities for the study and practice of meditation, contemplation, and related disciplines drawn from world religious and wisdom traditions. Our mission is to help participants discover and manifest peace, compassion, and kindness in themselves, in their relations with others, and in their communities.

We offer a full schedule of meditation practice sessions and classes throughout the Chautauqua season. We do not promote any one faith or path but practice in the spirit of inter-spirituality, introducing the essential truths and practices of many paths. They are offered side by side, as equally valid approaches to the divine in each of us.

This year we will offer six morning sessions, Mon-Sat, to investigate and practice meditation and related disciplines under the guidance of our experienced faculty. The 7:45 to 8:30am sessions are largely experiential, with sufficient instruction for beginners. Please click on our Calendar for complete details.

Everyone is welcome. No prior experience is necessary and newcomers will be comfortable in these sessions. No pre-registration is necessary and no fees are charged, although a donation at the door is requested to help support our program.
