Spiritualizing your day to day activities may seem elusive, but only when you look for happiness in the wrong place—outside of yourself. When you gain the simple tools to re-focus your energy inward, you discover that a deeply fulfilling happiness is part of your own nature.

You will learn and experience:

  • An extremely effective, classical technique of meditation taught by Paramhansa Yogananda.

Walking meditation at The Expanding Light Retreat

  • How to be positively magnetic using simple affirmations that re-train the brain
  • Walking meditation to draw more uplifted awareness and creativity to your life
  • Seeing the Divine Hand in your own life and in each person’s unique expression
  • Guided sessions of Ananda Yoga that re-instill deep calm and rejuvenation to the body and spirit
  • Techniques to draw upon your own intuitive guidance.

Do you like the idea of blending a deep spiritual awareness with your job, family, and daily activities? Learn how to use simple tools to experience the hidden meaning, success and joy in everyday moments.

What you learn here can be used to transform your life on a daily basis. We look forward to sharing this time with you!
