Dear friend,

Do you want to live a better life? Do you feel you are too often caught up in the challenges of modern living? Do you question whether you are good enough? Are you always worrying about whether you are going to "make it?" Do you want to live a happier life: more centered, more calm, more satisfying? There is a way.

Live for a higher purpose. You do not have to quit your job. You do not have to join a monastery. You do, however, have to consciously make some changes.

Change your priorities. Change what you think is most important. Dedicate yourself to a new direction. When you fall short, pick yourself up and keep going. Stop letting your emotions drive your life. It is not always easy. However, sustained effort always brings results. Make the commitment. Life is a challenge no matter what you do! Why not at least live it for better reasons? You'll be happier.

Take steps. Build your toolbox. Get some help.

Learn How to Meditate. Techniques for Peace of Mind and Balanced Living.
Live from the Inside Out. Find Solutions to Life's Challenges.
Join us for A Christmas of Inner Awakening. Experience Joy and Spiritual Community
Come to the Retreat for New Year Renewal: Relax, Recharge, Refocus.

One of the greatest moments of my life was when I became a disciple of Paramhansa Yogananda. I put my life in his hands. I do it again every day. It is so freeing!

No matter your path or your religion - put your life in God's hands. Live for more. As you move forward God's love will become more real for you. You will more deeply feel that you are secure in God. Then you can more deeply relax, and you'll find yourself finding more enjoyment in what you do.

Blessings on your path,
