Welcome to

Golden Lotus Community

and the
Southeast Arizona Meditation Circle of SRF

We're Glad You're Here
Welcome to Golden Lotus Community, a serene haven of spiritual growth nestled in the heart of southeast Arizona on 40 acres. As a Self-Realization Fellowship (SRF)-based lay disciple intentional community, we live by the teachings of Paramahansa Yogananda, fostering a culture of inner tranquility and spiritual renewal.
Our mission is to provide an inspirational environment that leads to inner peace, contentment, harmony, and joy through meditation.
About Our Community
Golden Lotus Community is about a lifestyle centered around Paramahansa Yogananda's teachings. Whether you're seeking to deepen your spiritual practice or looking for a supportive community that values meditation, yoga, and spiritual discourse, you'll find a welcoming environment here.
Residents gain fresh perspectives on life, inspired by Paramahansaji's insight that, “You may be surprised at what seclusion with God will do for your mind, body, and soul . . . Through the portals of silence the healing sun of wisdom and peace will shine upon you.”
Regular Spiritual Practices
Here, every day is a personal retreat with the freedom to delve into regular spiritual practices according to your own rhythm.
We join in community meditation and inspirational services each Wednesday and Sunday, as well as for Commemorative services on the SRF calendar.
We participate in long meditations and one-day retreats whenever possible, most often via SRF's Online Meditation Center.  Click the button below for more information about this valuable resource.

Spiritual Journey
We integrate Paramahansa Yogananda’s teachings into everyday activities, emphasizing service, meditation, and community dynamics.
Golden Lotus Community is more than just a place; it’s a vibrant community dedicated to spiritual growth and shared learning.
“Keep life simple and enjoy what God has provided . . . There is much in God's hidden nature to fascinate the mind of man. Use your free time to read worthwhile books, meditate, and enjoy an uncomplicated life.”
