Retreats and Workshops
blessed role of Kriya Yoga in the West has hardly more than just begun.
May all men come to know that there is a definite, scientific technique
of Self-realization for the overcoming of all human misery!"
From Autobiography of a Yogi, by Paramhansa Yogananda
Kriya Yoga is a technique of pranayama (energy control) which, when practiced
during meditation, greatly accelerates ones progress toward God.
Kriya is one of the most effective techniques available to help us reach
the goal of union with the Infinite and is the heart of the spiritual
practices for disciples of Paramhansa Yogananda. All are welcome to these
weekends to explore the path and science of Kriya. Initiation is limited
to those who have completed the preparatory work.
