Sharing Ananda Meditation Resources with You

Ananda Meditation® is a practice for deep relaxation & stress reduction, and the practices can become guiding lights on a spiritual Path, a lifestyle, for people interested in connecting with the Divine through various breathing and mantra practices.

The introductory meditation practice is for anyone seeking to know themselves better, to feel more inward peace and to express more outward compassion & joy. Kriya Yoga is the comprehensive spiritual path that was brought to the West by Paramhansa Yogananda, author of Autobiography of a Yogi. The Expanding Light Retreat joyfully shares the initial meditation practice of Kriya Yoga with all our guests - the Hong Sau technique.
