In this workshop you will discover realistic ways to take the mystery out of the mystical and ease the divide between ‘spiritual life’ and ‘real life.’

You will learn to:    

  • See work, family, and personal relationships from the perspective of spiritual practice
  • Recognize key opportunities for spiritual growth in everyday experiences
  • Elevate the ordinary into something extraordinary
  • Use spiritual applications for day-to-day activities
  • Assess your spiritual goals and what you can incorporate in your life

You will learn how to use your spiritual practices to face the often challenging and frenetic pace of daily life and the demands of social and personal obligations. We will look at the nature of the self and reality, definitions of ‘success’ and ways to approach life with wonder, gratitude, and concern for others.      

The workshop will be led by Uddhava Ramsden, an Ananda minister who has been a member of the community for more than 30 years. Uddhava is one of Ananda’s most engaging and pragmatic instructors.
