2019 Ananda New England Kriya Retreat
with Nayaswamis Dharmadas and Nirmala
Friday, October 18th-Sunday, October 20th
Rolling Ridge Retreat Center, North Andover, MA
Kriya Yoga is a meditation technique that quickly accelerates one’s spiritual growth toward the goal of yoga: union with the Divine. It was first made widely known by Paramhansa Yogananda in his Autobiography of a Yogi. Kriya consists of easy-to-learn techniques to increase concentration and awareness, promote deeper meditation, and increase our energy.
Join us for an experiential retreat in which you will practice the beginning techniques of Kriya Yoga through twice daily guided spiritual practices (Energization Exercises, Ananda Yoga postures, chanting, meditation). Additionally, through discussion, stories, and inspirational talks, you’ll learn more about the Kriya tradition and discover ways to live more superconsciously for greater happiness and success in all areas of life.
There will be three programs running concurrently at this retreat. Please note that one must be approved by Ananda beforehand to attend the Initiation(s), or have already received Kriya through Ananda Sangha. For more information, please send an email to Devalila Veenhof at firstname.lastname@example.org.
● Kriya Yoga Initiation into the full technique on —Saturday evening
● A separate Initiation into the Higher Kriya —Techniques for those who have been practicing —basic Kriya for at least three years.
● An alternate introductory program for those not –participating in either initiation.
We look forward to sharing the ever-new joy of meditation with you!
