Brother Craig Marshall

Brother Craig Marshall

Brother Craig Marshall (formerly Brother Mitrananda) spent 35 years as a monk with the Self Realization Fellowship (SRF) in Los Angeles before leaving the monastery to pursue speaking, counseling, and teaching ventures throughout the world. Craig was a child actor in Hollywood and later graduated from USC Film School. Then, at the age of 23, his life changed direction. He became a yoga monk and lived in a monastery. As a popular minister, Craig counseled thousands around the world, including many well-known people like George Harrison and Steve Jobs. Craig taught monks and householders how to develop intuition, face fears, and how people could realize their deepest dreams. His powerful communication skills have empowered many to take a stand for what meant most to them. Today, Craig helps individuals align their careers and relationships with their innermost dreams. Through a unique process of Self-discovery, he helps clients develop the clarity and confidence required to manifest their individual life-purpose in their personal and professional lives. This integration leads to greater material success while sustaining inner joy, the essence of Self-realization.

Ananda is a worldwide movement to help you realize the joy of your own higher Self. It is based on the teachings of Paramhansa Yogananda and was founded by his direct disciple Swami Kriyananda in 1968.
