New York Center

The Science of Spirituality Meditation Center in New York is located on the south shore of Long Island in the peaceful town of Amityville,just minutes away from the beautiful Long Island beaches. A house of worship, lovingly built by the members of its original congregation in 1957, the meditation center sits slightly elevated on a tree-lined street and is surrounded by blooming foliage. It's graceful architecture and expansive space is adorned with high-pitched ceilings, large wooden beams and stained glass windows. All are welcome to enjoy the quiet, peaceful atmosphere where one can enhance one's meditations, grow spiritually and connect with others who are working toward bettering themselves and the world we live in.
