Spiritual Renewal Week Online
The Road Ahead: Paramhansa Yogananda's Path to the Future

Not scheduled at this time.



What does the future hold? And, more importantly, what do each of us hold within ourselves to meet the future with courage and confidence as children of God? Paramhansa Yogananda incarnated to bring the very tools we need to connect with the divine power within us. Here, we find the wisdom and strength to make the most of this lifetime. And to live in the joy that comes from our own souls.

Live Event Schedule



Monday Class: The Dawn of Superconsciousness

Superconsciousness is our connection with the presence of God within us. How did God create us "in His image"? How do we connect with Him? In Yogananda's teachings, science and religion come together – enhanced and expressed with love and devotion.

Themes and Teachers:

with Nayaswamis Jyotish and Devi, Spiritual Directors of Ananda Worldwide



Tuesday Class: What Does the Future Hold, and Why?

We instinctively long for peace in our society, yet we live in a time in history called Dwapara Yuga, the Age of Energy, according to the great master Sri Yukteswar. Dwapara Yuga always brings social upheaval. Yet it also brings tremendous opportunity for personal growth – more than any time in recorded history. While society faces confusion and uncertainty, we look to the wisdom of Sri Yukteswar and Paramhansa Yogananda to give us the clear vision and inner strength to move forward with calmness and purpose.

Themes and Teachers:

Yugas – Joseph Puru Selbie of Ananda Village

Hope for a Better World – Nayaswami Hriman, Ananda Washington

What does the Future Hold: Yogananda’s Predictions – Nayaswami Dharmadas, Ananda Sacramento

Wednesday Class: The Way of Dwapara Yuga – Working with Energy

The wisdom of the East and the creative spirit of the West come together in Yogananda’s teachings to give us tools to use every day of our lives. Energy is the key! How do we channel it in these times?

Themes and Teachers:

World Brotherhood Communities – Atman of Ananda Village

Education for Life – Aryavan, Education for Life Teacher

Money Magnetism – Nayaswami Narayan, Ananda Los Angeles

Energy and Health – Dr. Aditya, Ananda India

Thursday Class: A New Dispensation- Yogananda's Path to God

Meditation, service, and discipleship are the foundation stones of the spiritual life throughout history. What does Yogananda teach us to bring these powerful tools into full expression in this Age of Energy? How can each of them provide the answer for living not only in joy, but in a powerful connection with God?

Themes and Teachers:

Meditation – Nayaswami Gyandev, Director of the Ananda School of Yoga & Meditation

Service – Nayaswami Maria, Ananda Village

Ananda Village Discipleship – Nayaswami Devarshi, Ananda India

Friday Class: Finding True Happiness: The Search for Self

Who are we in truth? For what end were we made? This is the question that propels each of us forward. How do we find the answers? And what does the answer to these questions bring? – God’s perfect bliss and the longing to share God’s love with all.

Themes and Teachers:

Finding God in Changing Times – Nayaswami Jaya, Ananda Village

Our Part in Shaping the Future – Nayaswami Asha, Ananda Palo Alto

Conclusion of the week – Nayaswamis Jyotish and Devi

Saturday Class: Sharing Yogananda's Light in Today's World

Each of this morning's speakers has been living Yogananda's path for decades and serving as a channel to bring his light to others. As they share how they keep their inspiration strong and share with others, we will gain insights for our own lives.

Theme and Teachers:

How I keep my inspiration strong and share it with others –

with Nayaswami Kirtani of Ananda Italy; Nayaswami Dhyana of Ananda India; Dr. Shanti Rubenstone of Ananda Palo Alto; Nayaswami Padma of Ananda Washington; Nayaswami Ananta of Ananda Village

Adi Shankara’s greatest debate: Is a life of virtue and faith enough to end pain and suffering?"
Great Masters across the ages have said that in addition to a life of virtue and faith, something else is necessary. 

Over a thousand years ago, along the banks of the holy Narmada river in India, a lowly housewife named Sharada Devi and her famous husband Mandana Mishra, challenged the great Adi Shankaracharya to answer this question. What ensues is a scintillating debate of epic proportions; the pious housewife, with the unfailing logic of a sinless life lived in humility and faith, brings Shankaracharya to the brink of defeat. Finding himself unqualified to answer her questions, Shankaracharya uses his formidable yogic powers to enter the body of a dead king to gain new experiences. Come join us to find out what happens next…and to find out the missing ingredient

At the end of Spiritual Renewal Week, guests made these comments:

"After 37 years of attending Spiritual Renewal Weeks, I am always uplifted by the fact that there is a true blessing in the whole event.... There are moments that are so pure and perfect that you instantly know that being there is right for the body, mind, and soul. The morning practices start the day with active self-connection....many different instructors with unique skills lead the way into the morning.  The classes are more than educational - they offer a joyful challenge to the mind to act and think in a more wise and expansive way.   The afternoon programs deepen the knowledge, and the evening concerts, plays, and chanting all serve as frosting on the cake, as days pass and calmness grows.  At the end, I felt blessed and grateful for another week of renewal.  I look forward to life and to my next Spiritual Renewal Week with you all.  May God bless and keep you."  Jeff K., Madison, WI 

“Incredible. I received quite a lot of clarity on issues that have been on my mind for some time.”

“The feeling of openness and the welcoming nature of the Ananda environment and people made my experience so beautiful! ALL the classes and talks were helpful and inspiring.I felt great love and support from all of the staff and community members.”

“It proved to be more than I ever expected. The atmosphere, people, and power of the Divine were life transforming. Will definitely be back.”

“Fantastic. Deeply inspiring. Life-changing.”
