Blessing at a Kriya Initiation

Kriya blessing

Paramhansa Yogananda taught Kriya Yoga as a comprehensive spiritual path, one that includes the technique of Kriya Yoga. This 4-day program (5 days during Inner Renewal Week and Spiritual Renewal Week) brings together all of the elements that will give new Kriya initiates a strong foundation to get the best results from the Kriya technique they’ll be learning on the weekend. It will also prepare new initiates to be the most receptive inwardly for the Kriya initiation, which for many people is the most important day of their spiritual life.

You will also review the techniques that are part of the Path of Kriya and other advanced practices to prepare you for Kriya Yoga. There will be instruction in deepening your discipleship to the line of Kriya Gurus, including a renewal of the Discipleship Initiation ceremony.

NEW: We are offering a new option for those who've taken initiation to stay on at The Expanding Light for an additional 2 days (until Tuesday lunch). During this time, you will have guided Kriya meditations, additional time to have your Kriyas checked and ask questions, as well as meditation time in Swami Kriyananda's Moksha Mandir. It is an extremely helpful way to feel strong in the technique before going back to your regular life. 

You'll see different price charts to the right: one for the basic 4-day course, and one for the 6-day version.

You'll also see special price charts for Inner Renewal Week and Spiritual Renewal Week.

Note: During Inner Renewal Week and Spiritual Renewal Week, the Preparing for a Lifetime of Kriya classes are offered Wednesday through Sunday (you need to arrive Tuesday night). Priority in housing is given to those who join us for the full 7 days. During Spiritual Renewal Week, you must register for a minimum of 4 days. The Kriya initiations are given on the Friday or Saturday evening of those weeks. We hope you can join us for the full weeks.

Prerequisites: Daily Hong-Sau, Energization, and AUM technique practice, Discipleship, study of the Ananda Course Parts 2 & 3.
