Join devotees from the greater Seattle Sangha in October 2014 on a pilgrimage to Italy to visit holy sites blessed by its great saints, and enjoy some of the greatest art and architecture ever created. The pilgrimage will visit Rome, Florence, La Verna and Assisi – renowned as the birthplace of St. Francis, whom Paramhansa Yogananda called “his patron saint.” While in Assisi, pilgrims will be hosted by the Ananda Assisi international community, and we will meditate together daily in the beautiful “Temple of Light.” The temple here in Ananda Washington was modeled after that beautiful temple! We will also enjoy guided tours of the great art and architecture in Rome and Florence, birthplace of the Renaissance.

This six week class is designed for those who would like to learn more about the core precepts of Ananda, and about the history and many expressions of Ananda’s work, both locally and worldwide. No one class, service or event among the many that are offered here at Ananda, embraces this “big picture.” All are welcome.
At this workshop, you will learn simple, sustainable, and effective ways to manage stress. First, we will introduce some basic principles of these systems of energy medicine, sharing with you time-tested and dependable ways to attain balance and harmony. We will explore the main five elements in nature (earth, water, fire, air and ether) and how each can support health and wellness.
Let the sound of silence in the trees and the voice of silence in your own soul bring peace, wisdom, and refreshment to body, mind and spirit! Space is limited on this popular annual retreat, so register soon.
Let us take a break from our normal activities on Saturday, May 17 at 10 am to honor the life, teachings, example, and living spirit of Master’s beloved disciple, Swami Kriyananda. From the Ananda Meditation Temple in Bothell, we will join with Ananda members throughout the world to participate in the groundbreaking for Swami’s Moksha Mandir, the astral-designed building under which Swami Kriyananda’s body will be interred.
“… without your assistance, the work cannot go on… All of you who wish to offer much-needed help, now or in the future, I bless.” – Paramhansa Yogananda
