Featured Events

Pilgrimage to India 2017

February 24 –March 11, 2017 Optional extension to March 14
**Final Registration Deadline is Nov. 20th! Late registration is possible but subject to conditions. Please inquire.**

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.”
—Paramhansa Yogananda

Christmas Meditation Retreat

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.
