Living Discipleship is an invitation to deepen your discipleship to Paramhansa Yogananda, and to expand yourself as an Ananda Global Citizen. The program is offered exclusively to Ananda Kriyabans who are established in the core teachings, and have made their sadhana and service to Ananda a central part of their daily lives. Through shared meditations, service opportunities and satsangs, you will practice living a dynamic life of discipleship. You will also have the opportunity to foster deep bonds with fellow sincere gurubhais, and to especially cultivate a deep inner relationship with Master.
The program is offered in two parts that are best taken in succession (but can be taken independently of one another depending on circumstances). Part 1 is comprised of a 16-week interactive online experience, during which you will engage with Ananda ministers and teachers worldwide, studying and dynamically applying Master’s teachings to your everyday life.
Part 2 is a 25-day fully-immersive experience, hosted at Ananda’s original site, the Ananda Meditation Retreat in California, USA. In Part 2, you have the blessed opportunity to step away from day-to-day responsibilities and worldly influences to embark on an inner pilgrimage to God communion. In addition to time in group meditation, study and service, you will enjoy time for reflection, introspection and time in nature.
Experience the joy of sharing this program with fellow gurubhais from various communities and from around the world.
