Description

Uma's precious suggestions will help you prepare for the long Christmas meditation—a tradition, still alive and powerful today, that Paramhansa Yogananda inaugurated in 1932.

You will learn how to devote Saturday to relaxation and how to direct the focus of your awareness from busy social activities to the tranquil peace of the inner world.

You will learn how to purify your home, your body and your mind so that they become the Temple in which to welcome Christ consciousness, with all your devotion and all your heart.

Last but not least, you will understand how to preserve the effects of this meditation to deepen your spiritual life and contact the infinite Source of inner joy every day of your life!

The long Christmas meditation, Sunday, December 20th, begins with a guided practice of the Energization Exercises and a  session of Ananda Yoga to prepare the body and awaken the flow of prana. This is on Ananda Live from 7:00 to 8:15.

The meditation is from 9:00 to 17:00 and is on Zoom. Here is the link on Zoom:

Opportunity

Next time you come to Ananda, sign up for the program Yoga in Action to get a taste of community service and receive a discount on the cost of the course. You can choose the option Yoga in Action for any course where this program is available and you can continue with this option as long as you wish. Your service project might change each day.

When we learn to serve with the right attitude, this is a spiritual practice and is called Karma Yoga. The daily practice of Karma Yoga is a joyful and practical spiritual discipline that will benefit every aspect of your life.

At Ananda, there are two levels of the Yoga in Action option:

Yoga in Action Level 1

75€/course of 5 days

With Level 1, you will serve for a period of one and a half hours. This experience gives you a chance to contribute to the beautiful atmosphere of Ananda.

Yoga in Action Level 2

35€/course of 5 days

Yoga in Action Level 2 is only available if you have had prior experience of the Yoga in Action Level 1 option, or any of the Community Living Programs. With Level 2, you will serve for a period of three hours, split into two periods of daily service.
