Paramhansa Yogananda – sharing his teachings through community and groups
Nestled in the hills of Umbria, Italy, is the European Ananda Yoga Centre, a peaceful guest retreat centre and community that lives and shares the teachings of Paramhansa Yogananda. Nalini lived here for many years and continues to be an active member of the Ananda community here in England, holding regular meditation meetups and a yearly weekend retreat (with Leon Deith, Yogaananda, Reigate). Ananda Italy hold many courses and it is a truly joyful place to visit and enter into a community spirit whilst practicing yoga and meditation. There is no part of life that meditation cannot improve and learning to meditate brings us in deeper contact with ourselves and with the Divine.
Above all, Yogaananda is probably best known as the author of the spiritual classic ‘Autobiography of a Yogi’, a fascinating and deeply inspiring account of his life and the deeper aspects of yoga. A worthy read for anyone, and a delve into the true meaning of yoga for any student of yoga or meditation. Written with great wit and humour, it is a treasure that grows richer with each reading.
If you are interested in the path of Kriya Yoga or would like to learn to meditate, please contact Nalini for more details. She is available to teach meditation in West Sussex, share the teachings, and give an insight into living in the Ananda spiritual community.
Regular monthly Ananda Meditation Group – we are creating satsang and community together! Held at one of our homes each month. Get in touch if you would like to join us. (Next date 21 July)
