We dedicate only one day a month to the care and upkeep of Master’s sanctuary in Houston so that it remains a magnet for those seeking to meditate together or to learn of Self-Realization Fellowship for the first time.

If you own a personal harmonium, we request that you please bring it with you to the workshop.
