Path of Kriya Yoga @ Ananda Meditation Temple
Aug 28 @ 7:30 pm – 9:00 pm

Presented by Hriman & Padma McGilloway

in Bothell
Thursday, August 28, 7:30-9: o0 p.m.

What is this “Kriya Yoga” that one hears so much about? Is it a meditation technique or is it something more? How does it work and why would I want to undergo the training in preparation for learning it? What commitment, if any, is required of me? What will I learn during the training and how will kriya yoga benefit my life?

Kriya Yoga was brought to the West and made internationally famous by Paramhansa Yogananda’s life story, “Autobiography of a Yogi.” Kriya Yoga is both a meditation technique and a complete spiritual path to soul liberation in which one accepts Paramhansa Yogananda and the line of preceptors that sent him as one’s spiritual guides. As is the tradition from ancient times, a period of training and preparation (9 to 12 months) is necessary to prepare the body, mind and heart to receive and benefit from such an advanced technique and begin one’s journey to Self-realization on a true and life-changing spiritual path.

In this class you will learn:
The history of kriya yoga
How the kriya technique accelerates working out of karma
How the four core techniques of the kriya path work together
The importance and role of a disciple and of the guru
Why breath control leads to energy control
The importance of the astral body and chakras for enlightement
The eight stages of spiritual awakening taught in the Yoga Sutras
The secret behind the science of astrology
What classes are part of the training course for kriya yoga

Two (free) classes are offered this August so that can help you decide whether you want to take some first steps toward kriya yoga.

Price: $0.00
