How to face trials & change with calmness & strength. Live online workshop with Rachel and Ruby from 10:00 to 13:30 and from 15:30 to 19:30.

Dive deep with fellow spiritually-minded young adults in a powerful online, one-day workshop designed to give you the tools you need to implement change and create lasting fulfilment in 2021.



We are living in challenging times. The global pandemic has altered the landscape of our daily lives. Many people are living with greater anxiety, doubt, and fear due to feeling alone or at risk, experiencing financial hardship, or simply feeling uncertain of the future.

The time has come to become the Master of your Destiny. Learn and actually practice together simple and time-tested techniques that bring you a deeper sense of calmness, strength, reassurance and peace. Discover ways to magnetize your aura: to draw to yourself greater prosperity, health, vitality, and joy. Visualize, reflect, and expand into the new year with a greater sense of self-confidence, faith, and a renewed and embodied affirmation of how you want to live your life.

We plan to work on all levels: body, mind and spirit. The course will include a series of mini lessons presented by Ruby, Rachel & Jivanta, as well as a thematic and guided practice of Energization, yoga, meditation, chanting (or devotional singing), yogic breathing techniques, and affirmation. There will be group discussion, giving us a platform to address the many different areas of our lives, as well as a Q&A and moments of heart-to-heart sharing.

The course also includes the opportunity to participate in three future, one-hour webinars to both stay connected and keep us on track to manifest the positive change we seek.

For any questions, please reach out to Rachel, Ruby, or Jivanta at The course will be offered in both Italian and English.

A minimum of 5 participants is required for this course.

Your teachers:

Ruby Stoppe

With her joyful, energetic and nature-loving spirit Ruby has been part of the yearly family summer programs in Ananda Assisi since age 7.

Her search for an alternative and holistic lifestyle drew her first to working on organic farms in New Zealand for 6 months, but then her appreciation for Ananda and its principles of “Simple Living and High Thinking” drew her back to Italy where she lives and works right now as the coordinator of Ananda Europe’s communications and serves as an Ananda Yoga teacher. She always loves to share some fun, but also deep moments with people from all over the world and help bring them to their own Higher Self.

Rachel Ariel Andersen

Rachel is a high-energy, visionary and magnetic leader and teacher with extensive experience in creating conscious community, developing dynamic content to serve the spiritual needs of young adults, and serving as a creative manifestor of all kinds. She envisioned and founded Ananda’s Living with Spirit summer program that has run continuously since 2008, in both America and Europe. She was the Assistant Program Director at the educational nonprofit organization Polestar on the Big Island of Hawaii where she also co-led their youth program, Adventures in Spirit.

Rachel worked for five years as a tour guide for an American active travel company in which she toured Italy and the US and learned how to better serve people from all walks of life. Rachel is the founder of Spirit Kin, an online network of spiritually-seeking young adults. She spends her free time adventuring in nature, cycling, hiking, climbing, doing yoga; singing and playing music; and loves working with passionate, inspired people.
