"Undertake the pilgrimage rooted in dharma. To pursue knowledge and to live a self-disciplined life is a great pilgrimage. In the pilgrimage of the mind, bathe in the water of truth that hold the heart with faith in what endures. " –Mahabharata

The New Year stretches out before us as a dharmic field of divine possibility. Enter that field purposefully with your innate soul powers of intention, clear discernment, and surrendered devotion.

Join Yogacharya O'Brian for this opportunity to be immersed in spiritual practices that illumine the mind, balance the body, support well-being and offer the life-enhancing keys to Self- and God-realization. The retreat includes:

      -  Kriya Yoga philosophy, practice, & initiation
      -  A sankalpa (intention) mantra ritual to begin the New Year
      -  Instruction in mantra, pranayama, and superconscious meditation
      -  Tools to set your goals in accordance with your life purpose and stage of life
      -  Methods for insight and experience of higher realities
      -  Daily meditation sessions
      -  Easy to follow gentle Hatha Yoga sessions


    This retreat will be livestreamed online for all participants. We are also offering a hybrid option to attend a portion of the retreat in-person, which includes the opening session, morning sessions, lunch, and afternoon sessions. All meditation sessions, hatha yoga, and Friday/Saturday evening sessions will be online only for all participants.
