From the Spiritual Diary, July 21, Practicing the Presence of God: Once when I was meditating I heard His voice, whispering: "Thou dost say I am away; but thou didst not come in. Come in and you will see Me. I am always here, ready to greet thee." - Paramahansa Yogananda, "Man's Eternal Quest"

Welcome to Greenfield Retreat

The Self-Realization Fellowship Greenfield Retreat in Front Royal, Virginia is a branch of Self-Realization Fellowship, a worldwide religious organization founded by Paramahansa Yogananda in 1920 to teach scientific techniques of meditation that will lead to a direct, personal relationship with God.
