If you repeatedly call on Him with ever deeper concentration, He will answer your prayer. A joy and peace will strike your heart. When that comes, you know that you are communing with God. –Paramhansa Yogananda

Join special guest Mary Kretzmann as she shares her wisdom and experience as a minister, long-time director of the Ananda Healing Prayer Ministry, and a founding member of Ananda.

Come learn:

  • Tools for strengthening your connection with the Divine Energy by deepening your faculty of concentration, willpower, and prayer
  • How to pray effectively for the appropriate kind of healing in difficult circumstances for yourself, an individual, for situations involving groups of people, or the world
  • Common misconceptions and pitfalls related to channeling healing energy and how to avoid them

Mary moved to Ananda Village in 1978, and with her husband, Tim, raised their family of three children. A gifted channel of divine energy and hands-on spiritual healing, Mary has healed many through the power of prayer.

In her early years at Ananda, she began to explore Yogananda’s healing techniques very deeply with a small, dedicated group who were praying for others. She felt inspired to put more energy into this healing ministry, developing it from its humble beginnings into what is now the Ananda Healing Prayer Council. She helps beginners learn the practices, and through newsletters and personal guidance, as well as the classes at The Expanding Light, helps those interested to go very deeply into the experience of God through healing prayers. The Prayer Council has grown to over 650 members worldwide. Each of these members receive a list of three people to pray for each month.

Mary shares her insights and inspirations through the classes she teaches on Energy Healing Techniques. Many people feel their own healing energy open up during the workshops when given even brief coaching from Mary. Mary has also coauthored a book on Yogananda’s prayer techniques called Divine Will Healing. The book contains extensive chapters on healing by Paramhansa Yogananda and Swamiji Kriyananda, in addition to chapters by Mary showing how a person can effectively apply those teachings.
