The American Meditation Society Center for Peace and Unfoldment


New AMS National Center in Knoxville, TN.

As most of you know by now AMS has surpassed our initial fundraising goal to build the American Meditation Society for Peace and Unfoldment. Thank you all who helped with the campaign and to those who generously donated to the fund. We are continuing our open fundraising for anyone who would like to be a part of this effort. There is still plenty to do (and to buy) once we have the facility, think beds, kitchen and dining room equipment, office computers, sound and video gear…you get the idea. We are finalizing our search for the property and will keep you posted as soon as it is acquired. 


Center Mission Statement:

The AMS Center for Peace and Unfoldment will provide instruction in meditation as taught by the founder of AMS, Gururaj Ananda Yogi through classes and courses.

It will work to preserve and share the universal teachings of Gururaj with integrity and wisdom.

The center will provide a physical place where those who wish to nurture peace and unfold the inner self, may do so in a nurturing environment.

The AMS National Center will:

  • Be the official legal and operational office for the organization.
  • Serve as a location for national, regional, and local courses/retreats.
  • Be equipped to hold live webinar courses and stream programming as it develops.
  • Offer all levels of meditation classes taught by AMS certified teachers.
  • Be the center for teacher training and certification.
  • Work to partner with local likeminded organizations.
  • Be a base to connect with local groups in need of these practices and teachings.
  • Run all sales and shipping of books, audio content, and merchandise.
  • House and curate Guru Raj’s works as they are collected and donated.
  • House all institutional documents.
  • House the original media archives in a secure vault
