Spiritual Renewal Week 2009, Pt.1
August 12th, 2009
My guess is that at least 300 people were at The Expanding Light amphitheater to listen to Swami Kriyananda give the opening talk on Monday.
That evening we were treated to a beautiful concert. You can listen to a recording of Life Mantra on David Eby’s blog. David directed the choir and orchestra and as usual, it felt like we were being serenaded by the angels. The evening ended with Swamiji singing his song, Peace with the choir. He always invites the audience to sing the final Amens, which is a surprisingly sweet thing to do.
Tuesday, Nirmoha, from Ananda Palo Alto sang for us and then Jyotish and Devi gave amazing talks. They will be up on ananda.org very soon and I highly recommend listening to them. They were inspiring, encouraging, and at times hilarious. Today, Wednesday, the talk was given by a panel of speakers, Gyandev, Nirmala, Hriman, Anandi and Bharat. Those talks will also be on ananda.org
Tonight is The Peace Treaty, Swamiji’s play. This year there will be many new actors and costumes. I will post photos as soon as possible.
