You are in this world to grow.


The Movement Center offers you the opportunity to tap into the highest potential that exists for you as a human being. We support your growth as you awaken to the power of life within you, discover the dimensions of that power, and become empowered to live a life of your own design.

“Love is alive inside you and is the very essence of your life.”
— Swami Chetanananda

The Movement Center is a place for spiritual practice, for refuge and retreat, for meditation, yoga and service. It is an intentional community gathered in an ashram with Swami Chetanananda as the principal spiritual teacher and guide.  We welcome all, with open hearts: all races, religions, national origins, genders, sexual orientations, ages, and disabilities.

We invite you to make contact with your deepest self, develop a natural alignment between your essence and your daily experience, and live in a state of flow that will transform you and your entire life. In this place of genuine connection, compassion and kindness automatically arise. This process is what we call growing, and it’s the purpose of our life on earth.

Our practice embraces the tantric traditions of Kashmir Shaivism and Vajrayana Buddhism with individual and group meditation and rituals. 

We offer:

  • Daily meditation, chanting and puja
  • Hatha yoga classes for students at all levels
  • ealing practices to relieve disease and distress
  • Personal retreats
  • Retreat programs with Swami Chetanananda
  • Books and other products to educate and inspire you
