Kriya Yoga: Retreats and Workshops

"The 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

What Are The Energization Exercises? Paramhansa Yogananda taught a series of exercises to increase your energy by drawing on the source of infinite power and cosmic energy.

Step 3 on the path of Kriya Yoga
What Is Discipleship and Why Is It Important?This workshop will introduce you to the Masters of Kriya Yoga and answer such questions as: Do you need a spiritual guru? What is a true guru?

How soon can I receive Kriya initiation
