    “The Inner Journey” is a wonderful course for the serious seeker on the spiritual path. As always with Ananda courses, there were many fresh and inspiring insights which helped me to focus more deeply on my own journey and meditation practice. Explanations of Patanjali’s Eight-Limbed Path were thoughtful, well-presented, and gratefully received. In the Q and A sessions, questions were answered with warmth and wisdom. I thoroughly enjoyed this course!

    I appreciate the time the Teachers take in their responses to the students’ submissions ~ feels like a deep and lovely blessing. I very much resonated with a particular statement, “And always remember that everything in our lives has been attracted to us at some point in time….” It has been quite a while since I came to understand and fully agree with those words. In addition to Karmic influences precipitating these events ~ I also wondered if possibly things happen as a catalyst and to “stretch the heart-mind a little more into one’s practice.” This is precisely my take on this course ~ a beautiful catalyst in waking more deeply one’s consciousness in attunement with our exquisite Master lineage.

    I highly recommend this course to anyone whether they are interested in moving toward Kriya Yoga or not. The course material is simply awesome and would be of benefit to anyone aside from their motivation for being drawn to its study. Disappointment will not factor in the end result of embracing this class!

    Thank You to All the presenters who made “The Inner Journey” so very meaningful, hopeful and practical. Meaningful, because it reminded us that the Inner Journey is us retracing our steps back to our Heavenly Father and our own Divine Nature. Hopeful, because it reviewed so many of the tools given to us by great Masters like Patanjali, enlightened teachers like Swami Kriyananda and All the Self Realized Masters in the linage of our Guru, Paramhansa Yogananda. And Practical, because each day we were blessed by studying the teachings of our Guru with examples of how to integrate them into our daily lives.

    For example, through Patanjali’s Astanga Yoga, we retrace our steps back to God and draw awareness away from the senses of the body inward and up through the astral spine to the Spiritual Eye as we move toward oneness. Energization of the body, mind and spirit helps us to focus and concentrate so that the energy can be moved to calm the mind. Ultimately, through the sacred practices of daily meditation and Kriya Yoga, we are able to surrender our Ego and to enter into a an elevated consciousness where we can One day unite with God.

    In essence, this Inner Journey, is what Jesus was referring to when He gave the Keys (techniques) to His disciples to enter the Kingdom Within. Then Jesus said, “The kingdom of God is Within You.”
    Luke 17:21

    And the Gita says that, “Every soul must take the long voyage through the barren land of delusion and it’s final return after countless trials and tribulations to the Great Source of All Life. This is the story through which every soul must pass once it enters upon the outward path of life and once it chooses to follow the inward path of Divine Awakening.
    The Essence of the Bhagavad Gita, Chapter 3, pages 13, 14.

    Thank you to everyone who made this Inner Journey a very enlightened and joyful experience. Many Blessings to One and All!

    It was a wonderful experience and we are so glad we were able to be part of this week’s program, The Inner Journey. Not only did it guide us to be able to go deeper during our meditation but helped us get more attuned to God and Guru in our daily activities. Also, the beautiful and clear explanation of Patanjali’s sutras was presented in such a way that we were able to better comprehend its deeper meanings.
    A big thank you to all the speakers for an amazing and inspiring week. God bless you!

    The week long course entitled “The Inner Journey” was just perfect. For those of us who visit The Expanding Light annually, and now during a pandemic can no longer gather, these classes offered wonderful nurturing from senior teachers + opportunities to do hatha yoga, chanting, etc with our Friends at Ananda Village.
    The course contained great content that was Universal spiritual teachings. For those already on this Path of Self Realization, it offered time to be together (online), to be supported in our practices, and to share the JOY of this Inner Journey.
    It was also good that classes were scheduled at different times on various days in the week.
    Would I attend again ~ ~ you bet!

    This series energized my spiritual search, with its warmth, wisdom, and extremely practical talks. I recommend it highly to sincere lovers of God from all spiritual traditions. The 8 fold path of Patanjali is as universal for finding our way back to God consciousness, as Maslow’s hierarchy of needs is universal for psychological growth. This series made the teachings of Patanjali accessible and inviting.
