Join us for a weekend immersion in the practices of Kriya Yoga as taught through the lineage of Mahavatar Babaji, Lahiri Mahasaya, Swami Sri Yukteswar, Paramahansa Yogananda and Roy Eugene Davis.

In this 3-day event, you will learn Kriya Yoga techniques which help to facilitate
superconscious meditation. Mr. Kurczak will hold satsangs to explore the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali and the Bhagavad Gita, as they relate to effective practice of Kriya Meditation and serve as a supportive guide for yogic living. At the end of the weekend, it is our intention that participants have learned to bring forth a greater sense of spiritual awareness through the dedicated practice of Kriya Yoga philosophy and meditation practices.

Day one and two of this immersion weekend will focus on teaching and practicing prime Kriya Yoga meditation techniques and Kriya Yoga philosophy as lifelong support for encouraging greater spiritual awareness and superconscious meditation practice. Kriya Yoga, as a lineage, includes spiritual initiation for those who feel a connection to the tradition. Day three is an optional session for those who are prepared and are inspired to be formally initiated into Kriya Yoga practices and the Kriya Yoga lineage. During initiation, typically, a fruit, a flower and a monetary donation are accepted during the ceremony. Therefore, day three is on a donation basis.
