Easter Sunrise Meditation

Join us for our yearly Sunrise Meditation on Easter at Charles Memorial Park (99th St. & 165th Ave – Howard Beach)!!

Let’s expand our consciousness during the Easter season by meditating on Christ Consciousness — the projected consciousness of God immanent in all creation; the universal consciousness, oneness with God, manifested by Jesus, Krishna, and other avatars.

Christ Consciousness is open to anyone, of any religion on any spiritual path. For those who follow this path, it is associated with being open to love and truth, practicing devotion as a means to seek enlightenment and bliss. It means recognizing one’s birthright as a child of God, just as Christ was said to be.

The reason Jesus is seen as an example to all who follow this path is because he embodies the wholeness of every individual. It is said that this Christ “pattern” is in every being on Earth. Jesus, in this sense, becomes a guide to help yogis rediscover their true nature. In seeking Christ Consciousness, the idea is to transcend one’s physical existence and experience one’s own divinity and God-like nature.
