                         Welcome to Chicago Brahma Kumaris

 

Special Greetings of the New Year 2021,

There is a longing in the world for reassurance and hope as we move into the year ahead. Many of us are reeling from loss, fatigued by the restrictions of the quarantine and worried about the future. We are hoping for a spiritual lift.

Though we often make New Year’s resolutions, we sometimes limit our success by continuing to act from our old natures. We resolve to lead a simpler life, for example, but we fail to remove our inner habit of wanting and buying. So, in the new year, for the benefit of humanity and of the natural world, let’s come together to invoke a new era, by clearing our hearts of what has restrained us in the past and calling in the light and strength from our higher, wiser selves and from God.

Can we set aside the harm others may have caused us and invoke good wishes and pure feelings for everyone? Can we shorten the list of things we want and locate a deep contentment with what we have? And, acknowledging the sadness we have felt in the face of irretrievable loss, can we apply the empathy that came from our loss and resolve to live with compassion for everyone?

May the opening of our hearts bring waves of inner peace, good wishes and blessings for the world and invoke an age of truth and peace.

We Serve Souls

Brahma Kumaris is a worldwide spiritual movement dedicated to personal transformation and world renewal.  It is the largest spiritual organization in the world led by women.  The Brahma Kumaris provides courses, seminars and retreats on a wide range of personal growth subjects. All our courses are inspired by the principle at the heart of Raja Yoga -- that there is a place of peace within all of us -- and by learning to experience it we can solve problems with greater compassion and integrity.

What We Offer

Instruction on subjects such as meditation, self-esteem, positive thinking, stress-free living and anger management, at our Chicago facility and also at suburban locations in Naperville, Schaumburg and Lake County. All classes and programs are free of charge as a community service.  Visitors are welcome by appointment. Please call us at 773 698-6339 to arrange a time to meet us.
