How to Be Your Best Self
Attuning Yourself with the Universal Power within You

  • Mar 6 – 8, 2020

with Nayaswami Krishnadas

Take two days to step back and assess your life. Are you moving in the direction that’s right for you? Are you expressing and enjoying the best parts of yourself in your life?

It’s so easy to move through life unthinkingly. Use this inspiring weekend, filled with useful, time-tested tools, to get a fresh start on your life—to help you move in the direction most satisfying to you.

You will learn to:

  • Gain clarity on your ideas
  • Identify your true life goals and assess your stumbling blocks
  • Learn to use meditation to connect with your higher Self
  • Consciously draw upon the “success powers” of your Inner Being

Gain new tools to help you make desired changes:

  • Overcome self-doubt and the doubt of others
  • Use willpower and concentration to move toward your goals
  • Explore the power of thought, through affirmations and visualizations

You will learn a classic technique of meditation and concentration, plus powerful proven affirmations, as given by Paramhansa Yogananda.

You will experience the power that lies within you always. You have the choice to become who you want to be--to enjoy being yourself!

“Use constructively the power you already have, and more will come. Tune yourself with Cosmic Power. Then you will possess the creative power of Spirit. Power from the dynamic Source of your being will flow through you so that you will be creative in the world of business, the world of thought, or the world of wisdom.” – Paramhansa Yogananda
