Meet our class instructors

Pradhan Balter

A native of New York, Pradhan moved to Chicago shortly after he became a student of Sri Chinmoy 50 years ago. His entertaining, inspiring teaching style makes meditation easily accessible. He has lectured across the United States and in over 30 countries on the full spectrum of meditation and the importance of meditation in daily life.

Sukantika Donovan

Sukantika began meditating with the goals of quieting her overactive mind as well as learning to be genuinely happy. Within her first month of daily meditation, she began to experience a deep sense of satisfaction and joy; she never turned back. Sukantika loves to offer personalized classes to assist students in making progress toward their individual goals.

Ranganath Carnahan

Ranganath has been a student of Sri Chinmoy for 48 years. An internationally-known artist for 35 years, and originally based in Santa Barbara, he now lives in Chicago. In his classes Ranganath emphasizes the spiritual journey through meditation and other disciplines.
