Three Programs Offered at Ananda North East Kriya Retreat
Ananda Centers, Rhode Island, Boston and Maine/ New Hampshire, are co-sponsoring a residential Kriya Retreat from May 5 to 7, at the beautiful Rolling Ridge Retreat Center, in North Andover, Massachusetts. Kriya Yoga is a meditation technique that quickly accelerates one’s spiritual growth toward the goal of yoga: union with the Divine. It was first made widely known by Paramhansa Yogananda in his Autobiography of a Yogi. Kriya consists of easy-tolearn techniques to increase concentration and awareness, promote deeper meditation and increase energy.
This is an experiential retreat in which participants will practice the beginning techniques of Kriya Yoga through twice daily guided spiritual practices such as energization exercises, Ananda yoga postures, chanting and meditation. Additionally, through discussion, stories and inspirational talks, participants will learn more about the Kriya tradition and discover ways to live more superconsciously for greater happiness and success in all areas of life.
There will be three programs running concurrently at this retreat: Initiation into Kriya and Higher Kriya for those that have prepared and been approved by Ananda beforehand, and An Alternate Introductory Program for those not participating in either initiation. The retreat will be led by Nayaswamis Pranaba and Parvati, two of Ananda’s most engaging and experienced ministers.
Cost: Fees are based on chosen accommodations $275-$370 (until 4/13) and include lodging, meals and all programs. For more information and registration, call Jiavanna at 401-524-4766 or visit AnandaRhodeIsland.org.
