Lila Devi—an Ananda minister and member for over 4 decades—is an engaging seminar leader with 40 years’ experience lecturing nationally and abroad. She has authored 4 books, published in several languages, her first being used by Doctors Across Borders to train their physicians. Her fourth book, From Bagels to Curry—a spiritual memoir about a Jewish yogi’s journey from a traditional religion to a spiritual community—provides the foundation for this weekend’s seminar. As the founder of Spirit-in-Nature Essences, the oldest flower essence firm within the U.S. and globally outside the U.K. since 1977, Lila is considered one of the foremost flower essence developers in the world today. She graduated with honors from the University of Michigan with a Bachelor of Arts degree in English and Psychology and a secondary teaching certificate. She lives at Ananda Village. .

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.
