Online Ananda Spiritual Counseling® Training
Be a channel of higher consciousness for those in need
Join Nayaswami Diksha for this one of a kind course exploring the art of Spiritual Counseling. Spiritual counseling is different from psychological counseling. It’s about counseling others from a space of uplifted consciousness in order to help them find deep, personal understanding and direction.
This training will enhance your interpersonal skills as you learn to listen actively, respond with clarity, and open the doorway for superconscious understanding and solutions. You’ll explore spiritual skills and effective communication principles that will help you guide others to find their own solutions. Nursing CEU 28 hours.

Dear Leticia, Thank you for your question. What you are experiencing is not an unusual occurrence in families — especially now with difficulties on the planet surfacing from the worldwide pandemic. We need to be vigilant, be safe, and stay in the ... Read More
Dear Radhika, Swami Kriyananda explained how the entire creation is structured, according to Yogananda. There are three worlds, causal, astral, and physical. Here is the story of creation: God, out of His pure Consciousness, first created a very subtle causal ... Read More
Dear Varun, I recently read a quote from someone well-known in the fitness world encouraging people to “widen the aperture of what’s possible for yourself”. These are inspiring words but often the ‘aperture’ people are encouraged to expand into, in ... Read More
