"With the opening of the New Year, all the closed portals of limitations will be thrown open and I shall move through them to vaster fields, where my worthwhile dreams of life will be fulfilled. "

–Paramahansa Yogananda

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
    • Tools to set your goals in accordance with your life purpose and stage of life
    • Daily meditation sessions
    • Easy to follow Hatha Yoga sessions and dietary guidelines
    • Instruction for creating a conducive home environment for spiritual retreat         

    Registration fee covers basic administrative costs. The retreat itself is offered on a donation basis to support the CSE ministry and to continue offering online programs like this one. You can offer a donation during the registration process or donate here at anytime. You will also have an opportunity to contribute throughout the retreat.
