    Inner Renewal Retreat 2024 was truly a Divine experience! My heartfelt gratitude to Jyotish and Devi and to all the staff who helped to make this worldwide offering exceptional on all levels! The theme of Dharma throughout the week helped me to examine my own priorities and to commit to the changes I am being called to make in my life. I feel so blessed to be a devotee of Master’s teachings on this spiritual pathway. Many Blessings to all gurubais around the world! Thank You All!

    This was my first Inner Renewal Retreat, so I did not know what to expect. I was impressed with the organization of it via email, the quality of the live presentations, and the internet connection that was almost as good as being there. Thank you to all who participated on camera and off. The humor, stories, and facts blended seamlessly making it all easy to absorb. Thank you also for offering this program online and for making it free with optional donation. Now I know what an Inner Renewal Retreat is, and I am thankful to have been a part of it because I came away with greater insight and deeper understanding of dharma and of Ananda. Plus, having the recordings to listen to again is truly appreciated.

    Inner Renewal Retreat was so very special; there were so many helpful keys for me in every presentation. Erin’s mention of the children’s story “Are You my Mother?”and likening it to “Are Yo My Dharma?” really struck a chord with me, and made me chuckle. The impromptu performance by Ramesh and Bagabhati singing “Keep Calling Him” prior to Devi’s sharing brought tears. Thank you everyone! ❤️

    With so much gratitude for Inner Renewal Week 2024. Even being at a distance, as an on-line participant, I felt encompassed in the loving energy throughout the 4 days. i came away with quite a shift in my understanding of dharma. In many ways, I felt freed from my own thought restraints…what I do in this world. The music, chanting, prayers kept the energy uplifted. Will hope to go back and listen to some of the talks again. And humor was abundant, which lightens everything. The joy was pap-able. Thank you to all who gave of themselves so generously.

    I want to thank Ananda for this wonderful Retreat. It gave me so much light and joy every day.
    I hope to bring all this inner strength and love to all the people around me.
    My dream is to be able to connect all our light to create a world full of love. This could be possible with all of you.
    Thank you so much

    Hi friends,
    I wanted to say that I always feel uplifted and renewed during renewal week. Makes me more aware of how important it is to show up for satsangs to keep that energy flowing. Thank you all!

    Blessings and Love,

    What a beautiful kirtan! What inspiring talks! And at this time of world troubles, what an excellent guide to practising joy and staying centred in ourselves and in our kriya practice. In this way we can bring more Light and Love and Peace into the world. OM,OM,OM

    Thank you for an incredible 4 days.I thought the theme of following your Dharma was very important.
    I have been on the path for 50 years and the clarity of all the speakers really inspirited me to review my
    own life and my own life purpose. The evening of community praying just touched my heart. The four
    people who shared how they found their Path so clear, loving and full of light. The meditation togethers and
    prayer supported to raise my frequency. All in all I appreciated every moment and look forward to it again.

    Without doubt, the IRW is a highlight of my heart and year! Jyotish and Devi reminded us that the motivation & inspiration that springs from these IRW’s continues on for a number of days or weeks afterwards. This year I felt such a deep sense of family and belonging – the infectious humour, wisdom, grace and generosity was utterly divine.

    +Thank you for sharing this beautiful experience online. I am a newbie, and I was totally moved by everything I heard/learned. I pray for everyone on earth to be awakened to this way of life.

    Jai Guru ji. I am a beginner. I feel a little lost how to go about this path but listening to little that I could cleared my so many doubts raising my energy levels. Thank you. I hope I can tread on this path a little better. Om guru ji🙏🏻

    I found the Inner Renewal retreat most uplifting and inspiring, especially Jyotish and Devi. I also found the morning meditation with Nanda and Sundara particularly helpful, and hoped it would be recorded so I could use it again. Ananda has become an important part of my life, especially through the Virtual Community online, giving me real Spiritual support and encouragement.

  17. 5 out of 5

    So uplifting to watch this event on-line. Thanks, Ananda community members, directors Jyotish and Devi, for this event, keeping this center and for being guardians of Master’s teachings. God bless you all! I’ve been following you for some years now here in Brazil. It’s always very inspiring to follow your Sunday services and courses.

    Deep wisdom such as is rarely heard in this world…Jai Ma, Jai Guru!

  20. 5 out of 5

    Inner Renewal Retreat has been so cheering, motivating, and thought provoking! Being able to go back to the sessions on you tube to hear and also write down some of the most inspiring moments is amazing too. A thread of affirmation wove through Retreat. Try to be even minded and cheerful and don’t postpone joy! So simple and wonderful. Also it was neat to hear some of the great ideas and wisdom they are learning in the ongoing Energization Teacher Training Program many there are attending. It sounds like an excellent retreat to go to in the future. Thank you so much for opening Inner Renewal Retreat to the public. We were connected from all over the world!

  21. 5 out of 5

    Even though I mistakenly started watching the classes in the middle of the series, the first talk I watched spoke to EXACTLY what I needed to hear. The universal message and lived experiences of the teachers apply not just to Ananda devotees, but to spiritual seekers everywhere. I highly recommend this series to anyone seeking wisdom and clarity on the path of living their Dharma.

    Thank you for the “online” opportunity! I am grateful to you all, and congratulate everyone involved in the making of a truly inspirational Renewal Retreat 2024! Earlier this year my 101 year old mom passed away beautifully and peacefully. I had been her caregiver for several years. I chose, with God, to care for mom, even though we had a very difficult relationship since my childhood. The inspiring explanations of dharma and karma by Devi, Jyotish, and others made it much clearer for me to see how this dharma of caring for mom was just what I needed for healing the bondage of karma I had with her. Prior to this retreat I did not give much thought to dharma. I had resolved to heal, in this lifetime, some kind of “bad” karma I had with mom, and I was pretty hard on myself – tending to dwell on the negative, if I did not meet my idea of success. The understanding of dharma brought me to the realization that my caregiving wasn’t so much about my attachment to outcome, but my commitment to do my best under all circumstances. This brings me peace.

  23. 5 out of 5

    Absolutely inspiring and enlightening. I think I say this of every Inner Renewal Retreat or Spiritual Renewal Week, they simply are incredible blessings to any devotee who is sincerely looking to grow and move forward on their path. I am eternally grateful for these teachings and the opportunity to come together with like-minded souls.

  24. 5 out of 5

    I really needed doable ways to be even minded and cheerful in these heart-wrenching times. Inner renewal has fortified me to stay calm, smile and know God, first and foremost. Gratitude and love for all the inspiring speakers who opened their hearts to us.

  25. 5 out of 5

    The highlight of my year. The classes are so inspiring. If you can make time for this. You’ll be very glad you did.

  26. 5 out of 5

    I have had a great time to be together with so many devotees over the world.
    the energy and sharing Joy together and Nice songs of Yogananda and Swamiji made it as
    a festivity for all of us.
    I also enjoyed the meditation , special on the thirth day.
    the subject was very interesting and well explained. Dharma!
    thanks to all who made and worked on this event. In Joy, Gyandevi.
    i give it a 10.

  27. 5 out of 5

    This retreat was a good reset. I was pleased to hear the bhajans and see younger people carrying forward this mission. I first read Autobiography of a Yogi and listened to records of Yogananda and Kriyananda singing bhajans in 1965 at the beginning of my spiritual journey in this incarnation. I’m 77 now and it is good to get a refresher.🙏

  28. 5 out of 5

    Thank you to everyone at Ananda for the beautiful retreat. It was very kind to offer it at no cost this year and I wanted to express my heartfelt thanks to the entire panel for a wonderful few days. I look forward to attending in person one day soon.

    Dear Friends,
    I have just finished watching online Inner Renewal Week where the theme of discussion was “Embracing your Dharma.” If you have ever wondered “what am I supposed to do with my life?” These talks given by NayaSwami’s Jyotish and Devi will certainly answer that question for you. Or at least get you headed in the right direction for discovery. Their clarity of the subject matter and deep love of the heart comes through moment by moment. It was as if they were talking to me personally! What a wonderful gift to have these souls sharing with us.

  30. 5 out of 5

    Jai Guru friends, it has been wonderful to participate in the renewal retreat and refresh our teachings, every time there is new learning, and new stories, and it’s never-ending. It’s amazing that even though connected online, I could feel such high magnetism & energy, thank you

  31. 5 out of 5

    Nayaswamis Jyotish ji and Devi ji and the other gurubais who were serving in this program are so humble and contagious in their joy, love, and light during every moment, that I found it a real jewel offered by Ananda. Graciously thanking you.
    In His Service

  32. 5 out of 5

    Online participation was wonderfully facilitated by those serving, behind the scenes, thank you. It is joy to share Deep vibratory insights with fellow disciples. Thank you for the full range of Dharma talks, and personal stories. My ancestors came to the mountains around Ananda in the 1850’s to find a better life. To this day, Ananda Village and colonies in it’s orbit provides a path, a better way in this life.

  33. 5 out of 5

    I was able to attend only a couple of sessions, but they had a deep spiritual impact within me. I feel a greater level of calmness and centeredness than I have ever felt before. I am embracing the coming year in gratitude and joy knowing that all will be well no matter what. Thank you for making the event online.

  34. 5 out of 5

    I enjoyed the Inner Renewal Retreat and the different voices, perspectives, and spiritual nourishment it provided. I appreciate learning more about Ananda and the teachings of Paramahansa Yogananda. Thank you for a wonderful event!

  35. 5 out of 5

    Thank you for the gift of being able to participate in the Inner Renewal Week. It was so amazing to have it right here in my home. All the speakers, music and kirtan were uplifting and healing.
    Everyday I would look forward to the sessions. The Ray of Ananda was such a blessing.
    Thank you

    Wonderful talks and truly Divine Inspiration filled the Temple and my life with upliftment. I will go forth in perfect Faith in the Power of Omnipresent good. JA!

    Another year of “best ever” talks and inspiration, this year in relation to dharma. Thank you all.

  38. 5 out of 5

    What a blessing to be able to awake and be guided in meditation. Then have such wonderful speakers to listen to as they explained everything which was so interesting. I am sad now for it to be over and cannot wait until it comes once again. Aum, peace, and amen to all.

  39. 5 out of 5

    True joy to be a part of IRW this year. I’m only 4 hours away, but it was a blessing to be able to watch online. Every talk was inspiring and joyful; seeing familiar friends faces was the highlight of my week!

  40. 4 out of 5

    Very well organized and executed program exposing the strengths of Ananda culture and religious life, transposing a part of Hinduism to an American setting and larger western audience.

  41. 5 out of 5

    Been enjoying talks in the evening, so glad they were recorded.
    It’s wonderful to listen to the teachers given insight on the joys and hard work needed to stay on the path.
    Hits more home to me, hearing from people alive on the spiritual path.
    Thanking everyone for giving so much to make this possible.
    May God, Gurus bless everyone always.

    I wrote and review and it only showed 2 stars! Not what I indicated! I am giving this 5 stars!

  43. 2 out of 5

    This was my first experience with Dharma talks, and I found Jyotish and Devi and the panel to be very engaging and felt they provided gentle, loving and clear guidance that resonated with me and is consistent with other practices that I do (mostly Landmark, but some Course in Miracles). I loved how they brought humor and personal stories into their teachings. I got alot of value out of this program (even though I did not take advantage of the morning meditation) and I am grateful that this was available online and at no charge as a way to expand my spiritual development. Having been onsite in the temple before, I could almost pretend that I was also there in-person. ♥️🙂♥️

  44. 5 out of 5

    It was my first time at the inner renewal retreat and I have to say I feel blessed and grateful .
    To me I understood the eight aspects of God in every moment of meditation and talk by Deviji and Jyotishji .
    I loved the last day where Jeetendra and others shared such wonderful and impacting stories of how they got deeper into this path . It just gave me enough reason inspiration to stay in my practices .
    Last but not the least I can’t help but say it was an amazingly organised event . The reminders via mails and information was a stellar job
    Thank you
    Aum guru

    It was an absolute Joy for my Spouse and Me to have experienced Inner Renewal Week 2024. We so looked forward to each day to meditation and the inspiring talks given by Jyotish and Devi. Thanks again for this very special week.

    Joy to You and Ananda

  53. 5 out of 5

    Thank you for the gift of Ananda Sanga right in my home for 4 days. It was a joy to be able to Meditate & Pray together in community with the world. Nayaswami Jyotish and Nayaswami Devi gave insightful & inspirational talks about Dharma, their open hearted joy was contagious.
    It is with deep gratitude & heartfelt Blessings , I give thanks for this gift of God & the great Masters. Channeled through Ananda.

    This is the first IRR I’ve attended as I’m just getting acquainted with Ananda yet I’m a devotee of Jesus Christ, Babaji, Krishna and all the ascended masters East and West. I attended online and so appreciated the warm, loving energy emanating from the group meditations and events. Everyone who spoke had a good sense of humor (a twinkle of mirth is needed on Earth!), and the personal stories were most engaging. Thank you.

  55. 5 out of 5

    Wonderful, Wonderful, Wonderful. After years of yoga and meditation, this has revived and awakened by inspiration and insights.

  56. 5 out of 5

    Deep inspiration coupled with practical ideas on how to incorporate them into daily life. This is a must for any earnest spiritual seeker.

  57. 5 out of 5

    Great gratitude to All presenters, participants and the devotees offering behind-the-scenes seva! Jai Guru!! Wonderful to be able to join in online and have the recordings for re-treating again and again. Blessings, All *

  58. 5 out of 5

    Just being able to feel enveloped in the energy of the event even though participating remotely is a demonstration in and of itself that space and separation are illusions. Indeed we are one in God. We just have to improve our knowing of this amazing reality. Thank you to all the wonderful speakers who shared so generously of their experiences on the path. Their stories inspire us all to keep trying!

  59. 5 out of 5

    Every year I look forward to IRW as the time to renew my commitment to God and Guru, and deepen my connection with them. I feel I am lifted from my every day concerns to deepen the relationship with Master and Divine Mother that is my reason for being. It’s also a time to appreciate what a blessing it is to be a part of the Ananda community and feel our support for one another as our Guru intended. Thank you Master, thank you Swami, thank you presenters, and all gurubais. Jai, Guru!

  60. 5 out of 5

    Pure joy to be a part of Inner Renewal… Year upon year.

    Uplifting and inspiring in the moment. AND, graspable tools are presented which can be put to use immediately in every day life.

    There is a precise clarity, along with the encouragement to attune one’s own inner guidance.

    Truly a wind of Grace to realign the mortal heart with the immortal soul.

  61. 5 out of 5

    Certainly a push upwards, and many moments helped me laugh again, and have fun. I love having the recordings that I use in my meditations. The talks are also great bedtime stories. A heartfelt thanks to all of you.

  62. 5 out of 5

    I am new to Ananda and this is my first IRR (online). I enjoyed being able to meditate with others in the morning, then hearing Jyotish, Devi, and others who were so inspiring! Not only did I love the content, I also appreciate the professional way in which everything is presented. The audio and video are excellent. That makes it so easy for me to relax and enjoy all the messages!

  63. 5 out of 5

    I watched the Inner Renewal Week online from what turned out to be mostly from my bed, having a pretty tough time with covid. I wasn’t prepared for the negative effects that the virus can bring to both body and mind. What transformed the week into the most amazing and timely gift for me, was taking part in IRW every day. Each day my questions were uncannily addressed. At my lowest point of what felt like real darkness, blessings of light were showered upon me. By the end of the week I felt renewed and filled with joy and with a deep enthusiasm to put all that I had newly been inspired by into practice and share. I hope to be able to somehow convey my gratitude to Jyotish and Devi, the inspirational speakers who brought such a smile to my heart and above all to our beloved Guru.

  64. 5 out of 5

    This was my first inner Reneal week, where I experienced the morning program live online.
    The energy felt so loving, joyful and warm. I experienced especially in my sleep what was released in terms of karma. This week inspires me to work even harder on my spiritual development. Thanks to all who made it possible.

  65. 5 out of 5

    Thank you brothers and sisters for sharing your energy. I feel very loved and supported.

    Every year we await this week to come, thinking it can’t get any better than in previous years, and then it gets better!

  67. 5 out of 5

    Inner renewal retreat was so inspiring. It continues to uplift and renew.
    It reminded me of things I know, but needed a reminder or had forgotten.
    Thank you so much for the high conciousness and energy.
    Many blessings to you all. Masters Blessings

  68. 5 out of 5

    Inner Renewal Retreat continues to inspire, deepen and encourage me to “stay steadfast’ in the practices with relaxed intensity!
    Coming together, even tho I was online from TX, reminds me of the “importance of satsang’.
    I’m so grateful for the Wisdom of the teachers and how they remind us that all we need to do is to remember that God and Master flow in and through us ~ all we need to do is allow Them to take charge of every moment.
    Gratitude, Love and Joy!

  69. 5 out of 5

    Inner renewal week in the company of wise gurubais help in the spiritual growth and transformation.
    I took a lot of understanding of why its important to keep working on the sadhana everyday even though it doesn’t feel
    anything is moving as Jyotish and devi mentioned. Learning from the experience of other gurubais like Jitendra, Dhyana and others help in affirming that one needs to deepen their experience with the divine.
    Also the science experiment shown by Jyotish and Tyagi Dhyana was amazing. very creative.

  70. 5 out of 5

    I’ve read above the feedback from the previous Renewal Week about a year ago, these are really profound reflections that I’m not capable to emulate now, even though my feelings are not least ones than theirs. Also I’m rather new this being only the second time I attended an event of this type. Nevertheless I wish to express very simply my comprehension regarding the importance of mediating with devotion, being the intensity a key factor more than the duration. Receiving light and expanding it in the way of service to others without expecting s return, because I understand now that we serve God. Attuning with my Guru is the most practical important matter for me today. Dhyan Jitendra Maria and Sagar explain it to all us in such a way that it reached my heart deeply. Of course Devi and Jyitish fulfilled all what it means to be on this spiritual path , sane as they both do every Friday with their wise messages. More to say I know there is but I hope this brief honest summary will encourage others to join us next time. Blessings to you too. In Master’s love.
    Ps. Being my native language Spanish I apologize if I did not express myself as good as it merits.

    Each year the IRW classes seem to get better and deeper. I think I don’t fully grasp the impact that, not only the classes but the energy behind them – and the added energy of so many devotees – have in my life. The renewed inspiration I feel from them is something I wish people everywhere could feel in their lives. I am so grateful.

    Dear Friends,
    “The happiness of one’s own heart alone cannot satisfy the soul; one must try to include, as necessary to one’s own happiness, the happiness of others.”
    Paramahansa Yogananda
    To those who offered song, to those who offered the heartfelt messages and teachings of Paramhansa Yogananda, the experience of the Inner Renewal Week was inspirational. Throughout the week I could feel deeply in my heart & soul God’s love being shared within the unity of friendship – within the unity of community – it was sacred.
    Thank you and many Blessings to all.

  73. 5 out of 5

    Deeply grateful…. And renewed …. And uplifted . Can’t thank you enough Om Guru

  74. 5 out of 5

    A fantastic week that included meditation, kirtan, interactive small group satsang and uplifting daily talks which transmitted a deep immersion of joy and hope amidst these often difficult times. Highly recommended. Truly a week full of bliss.

  75. 5 out of 5

    There are no words to describe the depth of my gratitude for these teachings, for Yogananda, for Swami Kriyananda, and for Ananda.
    Inner Renewal Week 2022 helped me deepen my understanding and commitment to my practices; and to Ananda and the message of Hope it brings for a better world. This has in turn aided a growing willingness to share and expand my greater self for the betterment of humanity.

  76. 5 out of 5

    The Blessings of IRW cannot be overstated. This was my very first year and my expectations were blown away! I was challenged, inspired and encouraged each day with the offerings! I was touched by the personal nature of the talks given by all of the lecturers, by the topics and their insights.
    I must say that my biggest take away was the deepening of my devotion! I have struggled with feeling a bit too intellectual on this path, sometimes over-thinking or feeling anxious over daily life pressures… IRW blessed me with tools that truly help transmute that nervous energy into focused determination and calmness.
    Regardless of where you are in life, what background you may have… the simple Truths presented at IRW will leave you feeling refreshed, refocused and reinvigorated… to think, speak and act with more centeredness, more awareness and more confidence.

  77. 5 out of 5

    I have been attending the IRW for decades and continue to find great inspiration with every Inner Renewal Week Program. The IRW 2022 was no acception, Jyotish and Devi are exceptional beings who continue to push our collective consciousness, beyond human limits to Divine Consciousness of Ever New Joy. Master’s Blessings bimal

  78. 5 out of 5

    IRW was a great and inspirational boost. My soul thrived on the vibrationd received.
    Apart from great and fantabulous vibrational sharing from Nayaswami Jyotish and Devi, I also enjoyed powerful sharing delivered by Dhyan.
    Humble request to you all. If Dhyan can share too his magnetism with devotees in India will be awesome.
    All speakers were awesome n they shared great.
    These kind of sharings should be organized on quarterly basis globally

    Aum Guru

    Dear Friends,

    Thank you for putting together one of the best Inner Renewal Week that I’ve ever attended. As Nayaswami Maria said in one of her voice messages to the community at Ananda Village, ‘thank you for the spiritual fellowship and the inspiration you bring to these events and the blessings of being together.’
    I tried to remember these words through out the week when I seemed to falter, and I didn’t feel like attending classes because there were too much work to do or there were other commitments that I had. These words from Maria reminded me that my participation was a form of service to others who are attending and to give energy to Nayaswami Jyotish and Nayaswami Devi and to others who were giving the classes and those behind the scenes putting on the events online and in person.

    I remember what our beloved friend Nayaswami Seva said. She said ‘just show up’. And I glad I did. I showed up every day, and I attended the different classes and events. I prayed for my mind to be open and my heart to be receptive, and I asked Master and Swamiji to help me feel the inspiration during that class, that talk, or that event.
    One of the things that I took away from this year’s Inner Renewal Week was that my meditation practice CAN make a difference to the world. In one of his talks, Nayaswami Jyotish reminded us that each time we sit to meditate we are helping to uplift the consciousness of the whole planet. What a powerful knowing. Our concentrated efforts to improve and uplift our own lives with our meditation practice can have a positive effect on the whole picture or the whole world.

    A friend provided this image of how we can affect the whole picture. Imagine we are all putting dots on this round circle that is a coloring book. And imagine this round book as the whole picture or the whole world. Each one of us can add our own dots to complete this whole picture. Each time we sit to meditate, we are adding a blue dot of peace, and a red dot of love, and a yellow dot of light, and on and on until the whole picture is filled with beautiful dots to make the whole picture.

    Thank you for adding your beautiful dots of joy and love and wisdom to the coloring book, to the whole planet.

    Joy to you!

    This was my first attendance at Inner renewal week though I have been a Kriyaban since last 4 years. It wasn’t just the words but the vibrations and magnetism shared that truly uplifted me. I was able to have clarity on one of the key decisions I was making in my personal life. Staying up awake in night as I was attending from India was amply rewarded more than words can convey. Attending the chat session helped me a lot as I met Gurubhais and formed personal connections. And attending the Kriya ceremony with Nayaswami Gyandev was the best. All these 4years of Kriya I wasn’t able to feel the currents in the spine and during the ceremony the way he guided and shared his magnetism that for the first time I was able to feel the warm and the cool in the spine. It was an Eureka moment. Since then it has been easier to feel the warm and the cool to some extent atleast. Profound Gratitude to everyone who worked tirelessly to bring it all together. Aum Aum Aum

    The many blessings, insights and healing that came with IRW 2022 truly elevated the consciousness of humanity! It also affected me profoundly because the many Gifts that were shared Deepened my devotion, gratitude and commitment to this Spiritual pathway and our linage of Masters!

    Thank you Ananda for all the offerings provided during IRW as well as for All that is given everyday to all gurubais around the world! May all devotees continue to serve in the Love, Light and Magnetism of God, Master, Guru!

    In Divine Joy and Gratitude,

    It was very helpful to gather myself and have meditations with my gurubhais and hear the wonderful teachings together.

    IRW is a wonderful offering and I would like to express my deepest gratitude to all who worked hard to make it possible! Jyotishji and Deviji beautifully imparted Master’s teachings in a way that makes it easy to assimilate them in our lives. The singing was beautiful and the talks by Erin, Badri, Devalila and Dhyan were uplifting and inspiring. Thank you all!
    I highly recommend it and look forward to the next one.

    This was my first IRW. Everyday was a deep blessing given to us through talks that touched and opened my heart wide. I couldn’t wait for the next appointment! It was so inspirational, uplifting and profound. It was exactly inner renewal. To listen to the teachers that we know so well give their personal stories and take on situations, to hear Master speak through each, to give us solid ground to stand upon in these times of world crisis – with the guidance of inner security was exceptional. Each talk, each song, each expression of love was like the touch of Master placing his hand on my head in blessing. So profound I honestly have no words to describe it, except THANK YOU.

    I love this event…grateful to Lila Devi for reminding me after missing the first day because I was unaware that the event was in progress. The words and speakers were all inspiring with such heartfelt expressions of Master’s love. I was also especially touched by the courage expressed by Devalila Veenhof. Thank you Devalila for your authenticity and showing us how to overcome our fears. Jyotish and Devi’s contributions always reflect a sense of humor mixed with love that never fails to fill my heart to the brim with gratitude for being a part of this community. And finally, the musicians and singers always add their harmonious touch that centers me and reminds me to remember and give gratitude to Swami Kriyananda for all his great music. Thank you all!!

    This week was inspirational, uplifting, and perfectly orchestrated to my day. Meditation in the mornings, talks that were recorded I could listen while working or after work, chanting/meditation or satsanga in the evening. The talks were helpful by being focused throughout the week on a general topic. I really felt like my practice deepened this week and my need for spiritual community was definitely met. I love having a retreat in place!!

    The classes during inner renewal week 2017 were amazing in their depth and impact. I was astonished to see how my spiritual insight deepened and helped with a specific personal issue which concerned me.
