What we're about

Whether you are interested in managing stress or in exploring the spiritual side of meditation, you will feel at home in an Ananda Encinitas Meditation Meetup.

As devotees of the Great Yogi Master, Paramhansa Yogananda, and members of the Ananda Sangha founded by his direct disciple Swami Kriyananda (http://www.ananda.org), we are forever Blessed by extending our satsang to YOU!

Meditation is one of the most natural and rewarding of all human activities. It gives direct, intuitive experience of higher realities, and is the cornerstone of true spirituality.

It also brings balance, rest, and a growing inner peace.

While its highest and original purpose is to help us awaken our inner, spiritual nature, the benefits to body and mind are well established by medical research.

You'll learn a practical and powerful method of meditation brought to the West by Paramhansa Yogananda, author of the spiritual classic "Autobiography of a Yogi", and clarified further for us by his loving direct disciple Swami Kriyananda through over 92 books and 450 musical compositions. This ancient healing science will help you reduce tension and feel more relaxed with improved mental clarity and awakened inner vitality. In addition to their scientifically proven health benefits, these techniques can take you even deeper into an expanding connection with your spirit.

Practiced on a daily basis, meditation produces profound results on all levels of your being—physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual. It connects you with your own inner powers of vitality, clarity, and love.

Ananda Encinitas Meditation Meet-ups will help you:

* Reduce tension and stress at will
* Feel happier, more relaxed, and at peace with yourself
* Improve your health, mental clarity, and vitality
* Develop a more intuitive, heart-centered way of life
* Discover and explore your inner spiritual nature

Come join us and experience your highest potential!

Om, shanti, shanti,

Casey
