About Us

The City Fringe Meditation Space in East Sydney is a centre for meditation and personal development.

We Conny Dietzschold and Florian Schaeffer have founded this centre in 2006. We actively practice, study and teach meditation since over 35 years part time next to our professional jobs as we love to give abundantly.

Our events, talks and courses are simple and explicit in nature and empower people to take charge of their lives and awaken them to their pure inner assets. Our events give an insight into how and why we think and behave in certain ways. Over time many of our subconscious beliefs and perceptions will become visible to ourselves. You  learn how to take control of your thoughts and feelings and the consequent behaviours. You are invited to join the journey of self transformation.

Teach this triple truth to all: A generous heart, kind speech, and a life of service and compassion are the things which renew humanity.
— Buddha

Together with our Presenters of experienced teachers and facilitators we have helped people overcome mental stress, depression, addictions, low self-esteem and unhappy relationships, as they took personal responsibility for their lives and altered their outlook towards challenges and became solution oriented.

Who is Brahma Kumaris?

The Brahma Kumaris is an international organisation and known for its grass roots work in spiritual education and for its role as a convenor of international projects and dialogues dealing with issues of world transformation.

When we give cheerfully and accept gratefully, everyone is blessed.

What we offer

We offer in the midst of a hectic city life an oasis of peace where you can recharge yourself by joining our group meditations or by listening to a variety of talks, seminars and courses on topics like meditation, self development, peace of mind, self-esteem, stress free living, overcoming anger and positive thinking / feeling.

Come, explore and take benefit like many did before you. All programs are self contained units suitable for beginners and advanced meditators alike. Please see our monthly Calendar for dates and topics.

Thoughts lead on to purposes; purposes go forth in action; actions form habits; habits decide character; and character fixes our destiny.
