Join Us in Praying for Others

Would you like to feel God’s healing presence flowing to others through your hands and heart? Ananda Healing Prayer Ministry offers instruction, based on Yogananda’s teachings, to those who wish to serve in this way.

Ananda supports a worldwide Healing Prayer Circle composed of members who wish to pray for others as part of their spiritual practice. We invite you to join us in this sacred service.

“I joined the healing prayer circle out of gratitude for the way you helped me. But I had no idea how praying for others with these simple techniques would deepen my own connection with God.

Thank you for teaching me how to pray for others, and transforming my own life in the process.” —TM

This movie highlights many of the wonderful things happening through Ananda around the world. Mary Kretzmann and her grown children are featured in the film, speaking of the power of growing up in a spiritually enriching environment.
