The Manhattan Meditation Center is an oasis of calm in the middle of the “city that never sleeps”. Our serene and tranquil environment, with friendly and experienced staff, provides the ideal space for you to learn to meditate and gain spiritual insights and experience the joy of elevated living.

Our silence room is a ready-to-use resource for you to experience clarity of mind and inner stillness, in the quiet or through guided meditations.

We offer a variety of lectures, courses, and workshops designed to deepen spiritual wisdom and help make meditation a joyful and regular practice. We encourage you to peruse our calendar for upcoming events, choose one or more of particular interest and to come visit us.

All of our activities are offered free of charge. The Manhattan Meditation Center functions with voluntary donations by those who have benefited from its activities.

You are warmly invited to join us on the journey into spiritual wisdom, into a celebration of life, and into the calm that comes through meditation.


Rona Schweitz is the Coordinator for the Brahma Kumaris Manhattan Meditation Center. She is a medical doctor by profession; but, her conviction that most of the ailments of human beings have their roots at the emotional and spiritual level inspired her to dedicate herself full time to the work of the Brahma Kumaris over the last 13 years. She is an avid meditator and spiritual student with the Brahma Kumaris for more than 25 years.
