Online Youth Program

Welcome to our online Youth Spiritual Education (YSE) program. We are here to support you and your family in experiencing the divine essence of who you are, increase your ability to share that essence within your family, and express it into the world. 

We invite families to use these resources as a time of experimentation, just like the ancient yogis, who were scientists of the body, mind and spirit. We try the experiments in our own life, ask the important questions, and find the truth within each of us. Our answers may not be the same as the person next to us. It is important to listen and accept each other, just the way we are.

If, while exploring these materials, you have questions, or would like to share your experiences, please contact me. May this time of spiritual exploration be a support to you and your family.  

With great love and respect, 
Rev. Elena Kanti Fritchle 
Youth Spiritual Education Manager

When we go back to school, we gather our material supplies, tools that are outside of us like pencils, pens, markers, rulers, tablets and computers. All of these tools help us to do our work. We can also gather our spiritual tools, tools that are inside of us like intentions, affirmations, agreements, breathing and meditation. These tools allow our minds to settle and focus. Bringing both our material tools and our spiritual tools to school can help us have our Best School Year Yet!

Gratitude leads to our highest happiness. It is part of Contentment practice, one of the 10 ethical principles given in Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras. When we practice one of these principles, we are guaranteed a specific outcome. Gratitude and Contentment bring unshakeable happiness. In this unit, families participate in fun and engaging activities to create a habit of gratefulness in our homes, receiving the gift of unshakeable happiness.

The Self is who we are at the very core of our being. It is our divine essence and pervades all aspects of our life. It is eternal and never changes. It is the source of all our inner qualities including: wisdom, courage, strength, power, kindness, love, creativity, compassion, and flexibility. The Koshas, or Coverings, give material form to the Self. They include our body, energy, mind, inner wisdom, and joy. It is through these coverings that the Self expresses into our material world. In this unit, we share ways to care for each of the coverings so we may fully experience and express our divine Self and all of its qualities.

Dharma Tales 
The 2019 Youth Summer Yoga Camp focused on dharma, living a life of higher purpose and following a course of right action. At the heart of living a purposeful life we find the virtue of kindness, or harmlessness (Ahimsa). This play demonstrates the important role this virtue plays in our lives, and in our world.
