Join us in celebrating the conclusion of the Year Long Meditation! Our global group practice has inspired nearly 9,000 meditators from 136 countries to come together with one common intention—to heal and nourish our connection to collective consciousness.

In this celebratory closing ceremony, Pandit Tigunait shares his reflections about what we can take away from the Year Long Meditation as we move forward in our personal practice and in our quest to create a bright and peaceful future. The closing ceremony features a guided group meditation followed by a special prayer by Panditji to officially conclude the Year Long Meditation.
