Inner Renewal Week was created by Nayaswami Jyotish and Nayaswami Devi to help us all refocus and enliven our quest for God. The week features five powerful morning classes offering inspiration and tools for living, as well daily guided sadhanas, an uplifting  kirtan, and a guided, informal afternoon gathering to connect with soul friends everywhere.

“Behind the wave of your consciousness is the sea of God’s presence” ~ Paramhansa Yogananda

The World we live in has its unique challenges as all ages and times have had theirs.  Strife, whatever its nature, whatever its cause, paralyzes us if we identify with it and lose sight of that which has ever united us.  In whatever times we live, ours is the opportunity to rise above circumstance and give expression to a vision of unity.

Morning Sadhana: 6:30 – 9:00am PST

Evening: Live Kirtan: 7:00 – 8:00pm PST

Tuesday: Be the Change:  Change Yourself, then Change the World

10:30am to 12:00pm PST
with Nayaswamis Jyotish and Devi

 “I vow from this day forth to be true to my higher super-conscious self” ~ Swami Kriyananda

 Accepting responsibility for our part in contributing to positive change begins with changing our own consciousness for the better.  The Masters of our path lived lives exemplifying how to behave, living super-consciously in service to others and the world, how to establish good spiritual habits and right attitudes.   By attuning to their consciousness, we can make a difference.

Morning Sadhana: 6:30 – 9:00am PST

Wednesday: What Did Master and Swamiji Bring?

10:30am to 12:00pm PST
with Nayaswamis Jyotish and Devi

“The time for knowing God has come.” ~Paramhansa Yogananda

 Paramhansa Yogananda and his direct disciple Swami Kriyananda have shown us how, in modern times, to seek first the kingdom of God.  This is the underlying foundation of all paths and spiritual orientation.  It binds us to one another as children of one God, one Father, one Mother, and waters the seed of hope in all hearts.  By illuminating the Guru-Disciple Relationship they have revealed to us a path forward that is practical, relevant, and rich with meaning.

Morning Sadhana: 6:30 – 9:00am PST

Evening: Q&A with Nayaswami Jyotish and Nayaswami Devi: 7:00 – 8:00pm PST

Thursday Panel: How I Find Solutions for the Challenges of Our Times

10:30am to 12:00pm PST
with Devalila, Badri, Erin, and Tyagi Dhyan

I will make myself successful through my own efforts and the power of God in me” ~Paramhansa Yogananda

The Challenges of our times affect each of us in unique ways depending upon our karma and that which we have been called to do.  They demand that we be creative, superconscious, flexible and ever listening to inner guidance.  As we live these solutions as instruments for the divine, we become increasingly free inside and serve as channels of inspiration and beacons of light to others along the way.

Morning Sadhana: 6:30 – 9:00am PST

Afternoon: Interactive Zoom Chat Session: 5:00 – 6:00pm PST

Friday:  Ananda’s Mission:  Our Work, Our Goals

10:30am to 12:00pm PST
with Nayaswamis Jyotish and Devi

“I want God and I want to share Him with others” ~Swami Kriyananda

 These words give us a daily barometer by which to measure our progress as we seek to align our lives with the mission our gurus and Swamiji have placed before us through the gift we call Ananda.   Keen observance, a joyful heart, and treasured divine friendships help us to selflessly and victoriously claim our divine birthright.

Morning Sadhana: 6:30 – 9:00am PST

 Evening: First Kriya Initiation (for Ananda Kriyabans only)
