An Easter Retreat
Christ Lives in You!

  • Apr 10 – 12, 2020

with Sundara Traymar

Come experience a joyful and refreshing weekend of spiritual teachings, glorious tulips, and musical inspiration! Paramhansa Yogananda came to bring a new expression of Christ’s teachings – showing how we can attune to the light and presence of Christ within ourselves, bringing lasting happiness into our lives.

During this weekend you will experience:

  • Musical Inspiration!—Friday night, you will be enthralled with a special choir performance of Christ Lives: An Oratorio—a musical expression of the life of Jesus.
  • The Teachings of Jesus—You will gain a deeper, more inward understanding of Christ’s teachings and his non-denominational, practical wisdom for your spiritual journey. Includes experiential activities, discussion, and storytelling.
  • Springtime at Ananda—Nature’s glory awaits you at Crystal Hermitage with over 17,000 blooming tulips! We will have time to enjoy the breath-taking floral display, as well as to meditate in some of our most sacred temples (course fee includes admission to see the tulips).
  • Easter Sunday Service—Join Ananda community’s Sunday Service, led by Nayaswamis Jyotish and Devi, Ananda’s spiritual directors
  • Special Guest Appearance—By the Easter bunny and her assistant!
Inside the Moksha Mandir at Ananda Village
