Experience an immersive weekend at the Ananda Temecula Farm & Retreat as we share Satsang and sadhana to deepen your spiritual practice in the new year!

“Truth is one and eternal” and we are all moving in the direction of realizing our oneness with that truth. Over the course of three days and two nights, we will take a fresh look at the basics. From attunement, overcoming karma, finding balance and everything in between, revitalize your mind and body with a well-spring of practical tools and inspiration to keep your spiritual practice feeling “ever-new” all year round.   

In large part based on notes Swami Kriyananda took from his earliest meetings with Paramhansa Yogananda, then extrapolated from how he lived these teachings in his life, these talks will inspire beginners and longtime disciples alike.

This event is capped at 40 participants! All participants must register by Sunday, March 13th to save your spot. (Verbal RSVPs not accepted for this event. Please make sure to purchase your ticket.)
