How to Rise Above Your Karma
Use Your Life Experiences to Empower Yourself

  • Oct 14 – 16, 2022

with Brahmachari Sagar and Sundara

There are certain mechanical features in the Law of Karma which can be skillfully adjusted by the fingers of wisdom. By a number of means—by prayer, by will power, by yoga meditation, by consultation with saints, by use of astrological bangles—the adverse effects of past karma can be minimized or nullified. — Swami Sri Yukteswar

 

Understand How the Law of Karma Works, and How to Make it Work FOR You

Comprehending the deeper intricacies of karma and gaining clarity on your karmic patterns and lessons helps you be more at ease with yourself and with your own journey. 

  • Find peace with your past
  • Calmly navigate the roads that lie ahead
  • Release bound up energy to be successful in all areas of life

Comments from Guests:

"I'd like to let you know that the value of the Rise Above Your Karma retreat really has stayed with me. Since the weekend I've felt quite noticeably more resilient in dealing with life's downdrafts, and have an easier time remembering that the benefit of these spiritual lessons is so often only clear later." — A.B., Marin, CA
 

"This was a life-changing experience that brings peace to my soul. With sensitivity and kindness the teacher related how we may all rise above our karma and be born anew in each moment. The meditation instruction gave us the opportunity to go deeply into stillness and connect with the insights and reflections that surfaced during the course. The Expanding Light Retreat Center at Ananda Village provided a beautiful and supportive environment where our personal relationship with God was renewed and strengthened.." — J.N., Prescott, AZ
