Joyful Arts Festival
You’ll learn and experience how joyful self-expression can be a doorway for spiritual growth. All of us are creative in some way in our lives. During this weekend, you’ll explore principles of creativity and self-expression that uplift your consciousness. You'll hear talks by Swami Kriyananda (if his health allows him to travel here from India) and other excellent Ananda speakers.
You will enjoy music, dance, drama, and fine arts and crafts throughout the weekend. Featured are the Ananda Orchestra and World Brotherhood Choir sharing the beautiful music of Swami Kriyananda. The weekend culminates in a colorful and soul-stirring performance of Kriyananda’s play, The Peace Treaty.
