In these increasingly uncertain and divided times, Swamis Jyotish and Devi remind us that the solutions to life’s difficulties remain ever-fixed within our own souls! Yoga Union is both the path and goal for awakening the divine potential within us. Experience an evening with Jyotish and Devi as they share inspiration to awaken inner strength, courage, and true Joy!
Drawing inspiration from How To Awaken Your True Potential, a new collection of Paramhansa Yogananda’s teachings, Nayaswamis Jyotish & Devi will speak on how to live from one’s center, to know one’s higher self, and to be the change we wish to see in the world. Don’t miss the opportunity to meet these two great spiritual teachers in this rare public appearance!
Meditation is natural and deeply rewarding. It offers a direct and intuitive experience of states of consciousness that are peace-full, health-full, mind-full and soul-full.
Each month, at the Ananda Center in Bothell, AND, at the East West Bookshop in Seattle, we offer four classes for you to choose from. You can take any one of them or all of them, to suit your interests. Each class offers a particular emphasis and specific techniques:
Class 1: Mind Fullness
Class 2: Health Fullness
Class 3: Peace Fullness
Class 4: Soul Fullness
Have you taken a Learn to Meditate class series at Ananda before? You may take any or all of these new classes at no additional charge! Refresh your practice; Recharge your life!
Classes & Events Coming Soon
In this hour-long class, we will explore how to develop intuition by:
• Exercising common sense;
• Daily introspection and analysis;
• Depth of thought and concentrated activity;
• Calmness, and:
• Holding onto the calm aftereffects of meditation.’
Learn how to:
- Identify what may be blocking energy flows and concentration
- Reprogram the subconscious while working more with the conscious and superconscious minds
- Raise your energy level and increase your will power
- Become more centered and attuned to higher levels of awareness
In this experiential course, each week will include a presentation of new material and practical techniques, individual and group exercises, time to share experiences, and a brief period of gentle movement and meditation.
Paramhansa Yogananda came to America in 1920 and described his life’s work as “to show the underlying unity between the teachings of Jesus Christ and of Mahavatar Krishna.”
He sometimes called his work “The Second Coming of Christ.” When asked why he emphasized the teachings of Jesus Christ and of Krishna he replied: “It was Babaji’s wish to do so.” Thus an aura of mystery surrounds the deeper connection between Yogananda and Jesus Christ.
Come explore with us the deeper aspects of this relationship.
Our Easter Service theme is the promise of immortality and spiritual resurrection through self-effort and divine grace, and, through the courage and wisdom to face life’s tests and trials with faith and equanimity. The service honors all traditions and all are welcome! Followed by a planned potluck banquet.
