Blessings to you from Ananda Village.

Spiritual Renewal Week has been reshaped to be entirely online this year.  Devi, Jyotish and others have created a program and schedule that take advantage of what is possible online.  The result will be a rich, expansive pallet of offerings.  This is a rare opportunity for us as individuals and for the world.

The traditional morning presentations will continue.  A panel of inspirational speakers, including your favorites over the years, will lead these.  Following those each morning will be three or four short presentations from Ananda around the world, sharing deeper explorations of aspects of the day’s topic.  These all will be available for your viewing whenever is convenient for you.  There will be SRW sadhanas, opportunities to join Ananda Lightbearer for meditations in the sacred temples of Ananda  Village, tours of special and holy Village locations, and more.  This is an example of using the challenges we face as opportunities to reach new heights.

The teachings of Paramhansa Yogananda tell us that we have chosen to live at this time to fulfill our karma.  The question always is:  Are we facing and rising above our karma, or fighting it and creating more we will still have to face.  

We hope you will join us.  Be inspired with us.  Grow with us.  Spread the light with us.  Feel love and joy together as we remember and refocus on life’s true meaning. 

Blessings on your journey,
