ONLINE: How To Awaken Your True Potential

October 17, 2020 @ 10:30 am - 12:00 pm PDT

Online on Zoom


This class is based on the book of the same title by Paramhansa Yogananda. It is a compilation of Yogananda’s original writings not otherwise in published form. It retains his wit, wisdom, and inspired, fresh vitality. It could be truly said that the spiritual path is one by which, step by step, we awaken to our own highest potential. Here’s how we accelerate our awakening:

Topics we will explore include how to:

 ·      Control your destiny

·       Choose inner freedom, not misery

·       Free yourself from limiting habits

·       Cultivate good habits

·       Contact God through devotion, prayer and meditation

 Learn Yogananda’s counsel on how to overcome:

 ·      Temptation

·       Worry

·       Nervousness, and

·       Fear

 During the class we will:

 ·      Extract key passages from the text

·       Spend time journaling

·       Engage in experiential exercises

·       Have time for open discussion
