An experiential workshop based on the teachings of Paramhansa Yogananda
Recorded in March 2023
Realize the life you were supposed to live: one of perfect spiritual freedom and harmony. What keeps us from this high consciousness? Our habits of mind. They can either aid our growth or hold us back.
Most of us are a mixture of qualities, though born also with the potential to rise above all limitations and to realize the heights of spirituality within.
Join us for a dynamically interactive, online workshop, exploring how we can loosen the chains of past habits and live a free, unhindered life of joy.
In this interactive workshop, you will:
If you covered a gold image with a black cloth, would you then say that the image had become black? Of course not! You would know that, behind the veil, the image was still gold.
So will it be when you tear away the black veil of ignorance which now hides your soul. You will behold again the unchanging beauty of your own divine nature.
— Paramhansa Yogananda
