June 2024 – 4th Annual Kriya Yoga Solstice Celebration – 3 Day “Stay at Home Retreat” – June 28th, 29th & 30th, 2024

You are invited to join us June 28 – 30, 2023 for an online yogic meditation retreat from the comfort of your own home.  Rather than travel to an exotic or distant location, I invite you to  take time from your work and your family and consciously dedicate these 3 days to commit to your spiritual path, further deepen your spiritual  well-being, and to give your self permission to rejuvenate your soul.

It is a great joy to have this opportunity to celebrate this Solstice with you and my fellow Kriya Yoga teachers. Each presenter/facilitator participating in this online offering are devoted Kriya practitioners and students in the lineage of Mahavatar Babaji, Lahiri Mahasaya, Sri Yukteswar, Paramahansa Yogananda, Roy Eugene Davis and their successors. Each teacher possesses a depth of knowledge and life experience worth sharing, and a presence that is uplifting and grounding.

During this retreat we will come together online for:

  • Guided meditation practice and training
  • Yogic philosophy lectures – how to think, act and be like a yogi – Given by a thoughtful and diverse collection of Kriya Yoga teachers and/or facilitators.
  • A 2-Hour Group Meditation honoring the Solstice, the time when the Sun is as close to the North Pole as possible.
