Meditation, Yoga, Bringing Spirit to Life
The Ananda Meditation Temple is a sanctuary of inner peace, where “yoga” comes “to life!” Here you will find
- Meditation: Learn it, teach it.
- Yoga: Hatha Yoga, Raja Yoga and Kriya Yoga. Find the inner dimension of yoga.
- Spiritual Living Classes, Retreats and Seminars, including Sunday Service
If you are one who steps apart from the crowd, who cherishes truth and high ideals and quiet time for the more important things of life, we think you’ll feel right at home here, at Ananda. Families, couples, singles–all are welcome! Come and find like-minded people. Most of all come and find inner joy!
We invite you to join us in this Peace and Harmony Initiative for the world as suggested by Ananda Worldwide spiritual directors, Nayaswamis Jyotish and Devi Novak. All are invited for this new year to take up a prayer-affirmation practice as a way for us to stand up for peace in a world troubled by uncertainty, violence, and disharmony.
Nayaswami’s Jyotish and Devi Novak are visiting Seattle this weekend and will offer a day-long retreat at the Ananda Meditation Temple. As the Spiritual Directors of Ananda worldwide, they travel each year to India, Europe and America giving programs, counsel, and sharing inspiration with spiritual seekers in all walks of life.
This retreat includes continental breakfast and lunch, meditation, Ananda yoga and much more…
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.
11 Weekends Beginning September in Bothell:
We will learn the classic Hatha Yoga postures (asanas) with a focus on the subtler aspects such as breath awareness (pranayama), prana (energy) in the spine and chakras, affirmations, safe yoga practice, individual modifications, 8-Fold Path & yoga sutras, spiritual awakening, anatomy, and much more!
Classes & Events Coming Soon
The teaching of reincarnation is the single-most important doctrine underlying the teachings of the east. It brings comfort, hope, and understanding to humankind. It has been validated by great saints and rishis down through the ages — including Jesus Christ!
In this workshop we will cover such vital subjects as:
• Why do we see a world of suffering and inequality?
• How should we handle the challenges in our lives?
• What happens at death? After death? Is there a heaven? Hell?
• What is evil and who is responsible for it?
It is time once again for our International Dinner! Our Chefs Buddy and Lisa will be serving up a vegetarian cuisine from Mexico!

Again this summer, Ananda Farm Camano Island offers a series of delightful farm suppers. Enjoy several courses, all made with food grown on the farm and freshly harvested. Before dessert, Zach and Hailey will take you on a personally guided tour of the natural permaculture farm.
Open your heart and still your mind to the Divine presence through devotional chanting! Chants by Paramhansa Yogananda, Swami Kriyananda, and mantras from India. We follow the chanting by going inwards and meditation for about 45 minutes.
