Event Series Event Series: Intro to Self-realization

Love is a far greater science than any modern science. -Paramhansa Yogananda

Based on the teachings of Paramhansa Yogananda, this is an introduction to the larger 12-week series “The Art & Science of Raja Yoga.”  Raja Yoga offers a scientific AND heart-based approach to the spiritual life, with techniques for stilling the mind and expanding our awareness of spiritual realities. It offers techniques for self-mastery in every aspect of life, from calming turbulent emotions to awakening deep compassion and love for others. Ultimately, Raja Yoga offers a millennia old system for realizing one’s spiritual destiny.

The teachings of Raja Yoga are compatible with the core teachings of all great world religions. Devoted members of all faiths are active in Ananda.

Topics discussed in this smaller, introductory class will include: 

  • What is our true nature?
  • Do we need a Guru?
  • How much free will do we have?
  • Meditation’s role in our spiritual life
  • The path of Kriya Yoga

This is an introduction to the path of Self-realization. For information about Ananda’s longer 12-week series visit here.
