Tools for Success
Unleash Your Dynamic Heart-Centered Life

Not scheduled at this time.

"Change the trend of your thoughts—cast out all negative mental habits. Replace them with wholesome, courageous thought habits, and apply them in daily life with unshakable confidence.

"A strong will, by its dynamic force, creates a way for its fulfillment."

                 —from How to Be a Success by Paramhansa Yogananda

Whatever your long-standing desires, the question is: how do I accomplish these goals? How do I achieve my desired success?

This program is designed to help you clarify your goals and learn how to accomplish them. Your course instructor, Sabari, will lead you through a step-by-step guide for creating a positive new outlook on your own ability to manifest your goals. During this weekend, you will gain help to:

  • Refine your goals
  • Reveal emotional and mental blocks and how to move past them
  • Discover how to cultivate and sustain a higher level of inspiration and joy

To help achieve your goals, you will explore:

  • Affirmations to tap into your fullest potential
  • Visualizations for positive results
  • How to recognize and release unproductive emotions
  • How to create helpful mental attitudes
  • A simple and effective meditation technique brought to the West by Yogananda. He called it "one of India's greatest gifts to the world."

Expect to walk away with a clear understanding of the power of your own dynamic will to magnetize success.


My outer life is a reflection my inner thoughts. Filled with the joy of God, I express His joy and harmony in everything I do.

—from Affirmations for Self-Healing by Swami Kriyananda

Sabari shared her attunement to the yogic life and philosophy with deep sensitivity to each individual. She brings depth of experience and knowledge that naturally uplifts, supports and guides the students. I am so thankful. —Rebecca R., Oakland

Sabari was phenomenal! We felt welcomed and immediately energized with an amazing power that kept us open to each other and new concepts. The time at the Crystal Hermitage was a highlight of our experience.
