Our History

The city fringe meditation space began in 2006 at 99 Crown St, East Sydney. Its founders are two professionals who have studied meditation and personal development for over 35 years from different philosophies and practices. Both actively practice BK Raj Yoga meditation as taught by Brahma Kumaris, a worldwide organization who offers meditation classes and reaffirms the spiritual identity, inherent goodness, dignity and worth of the human being. city fringe meditation space aims to provide meditation and personal development courses, events talks on a donation basis to the local community. It seemed that money is often a barrier to people participating in such courses. The ability to participate on a donation basis is felt by people as a new and unifying force in the community. The quest to prove that the inherent goodness in everyone is an abundant resource is alive and growing with every event.
