The blessings of pilgrimage, and the power of being in places blessed by saints, will change you and deepen you in ways you never would have thought possible.
“If you go to places where masters have lived, the vibrations there will quicken your realization. That is the value of pilgrimages to holy places. The masters’ divine vibrations are still there, just as strong as when they were physically present. Those who are in tune will feel that presence. But first, one has to meditate and prepare himself.”
Ananda’s most popular and comprehensive course!
At the Raja Yoga Intensive, you’ll learn how to meditate, and how to practice the yoga postures in the way they were originally intended: as a priceless aid to inner unfoldment.
12 weeks offered both at the Ananda Bothell Temple and at East West Bookshop in Seattle.
Classes & Events Coming Soon
The tradition of a day of meditation on Christ (both in form and formless) was begun by Paramhansa Yogananda many decades ago. Schedules are published the week before and you may come for all or part of the day. There are chanting breaks, a mid-day snack break, and a musical interlude towards the end of the day. This is the heart of the Ananda spiritual Christmas activities.
Bring the whole family for this festive, joyful and inspired Ananda tradition of celebrating the birth of Jesus and the promise of our own immortality in the universal Christ consciousness of our soul. Awaken the sleeping Christ child which is our own true Self within. Children “of all ages” will participate in this annual pageantry which is followed by the annual Christmas party to which all are welcome.
Christmas Eve enfolds us in the sacred glow and promise of the rebirth of divine love and joy in our hearts. This popular Festival of Light Service brings out the sacredness and inwardness of our soul’s eternal longing for peace.
Free – all are welcome! Please join us for this “moment” of silence and candlelight to welcome Christmas day.
The Northwest Yoga Conference aims to celebrate and promote the benefits of yoga while cultivating a unified yoga community through learning, sharing, and growing together. We strive to offer an affordable, inspiring and educational experience that welcomes everyone.
The conference features workshops for beginners, advanced students, teachers and studio owners.
