The Siddha Yoga Meditation Center in Seattle (SYMC – Seattle) is open to people of all ages who wish to engage in the Siddha Yoga practices of meditation, chanting, service, and giving. Rooted in the wisdom of India’s ancient sages, Siddha Yoga welcomes people of all faiths and cultures, teaching that divinity lies within each human being.

We warmly invite you to chant and meditate from 7:30 to 9:00 every Friday evening and every second Tuesday of the month. We also invite you to join us for the Guru Gita chant every Sunday morning at 8:10, and for light breakfast afterwards.

The Siddha Yoga path is one of inner transformation, based on the study and implementation of the timeless teachings of the Siddha Yoga Gurus and enlivened by the grace of Siddha Master Gurumayi Chidvilasananda.


Dear One,
The Siddha Yoga® Meditation Center in Seattle will host a Prison Project celebration satsang for Kishors and Yuvas (ages 13-24) on March 1st from 1-2:30 p.m.
This special learning event will celebrate the fortieth anniversary of the first Siddha Yoga satsang in a prison. The first prison satsang was offered by Baba Muktananda in the Union Correctional Facility in Raiford, Florida, on January 15, 1975.
The Seattle Prison Project celebration satsang will include a video share from the Prison Project’s first incarcerated student, Atmaram, who met Baba on that first day and continues his practice of Siddha Yoga in prison to this day.
The satsang will be led by a young Prison Project sevite who will be visiting us from Oakland.
Please invite any young people you know to participate in this wonderful celebration for Kishors and Yuvas.
