Ashram Weekend

Sep 16 - 18 2022

Lokananda in Downingtown PA

Dive deeper in a weekend of Ashram practices, shared with Ashram residents, including lots of swamis.  Chanting and meditation fill your mornings and evenings, plus you get to pitch in with needed tasks in the mid-day seva (selfless service) with your fellow yogis.  Your Ashram Weekend will uplift you through your deep yogic practices as well as your relationship with other yogis. 

Gururupaaya.h – Shiva Sutras 2.6

You need a Guru who embodies the Truth of Consciousness in their personhood, in their life and in their work.  Someone who lives and breathes Consciousness, who radiates blessings.

Gurudevi Nirmalananda lives and breathes Consciousness and radiates blessings to you.  She has set up the practices for your benefit, for the inner opening to the Truth of Consciousness within.  Your participation draws the Grace to you.

Your mornings begin before sunrise with chanting and meditation, followed by breakfast.  Evenings include teachings along with more chanting and meditation.  Punctuated by meals, snacks and rest periods, the rest of your day is devoted to seva, just as the residents do. 

Open your body, mind and heart with the Grace-filled practices that create the rhythms of our Ashram days.  Be nourished by sleeping in the energy of Consciousness in Lokananda.  And give back to the source of these teachings through seva, a great opportunity to serve. 

“Thank you for the opportunity to spend a weekend at the ashram and have time with Guruji and each other.  Everyone involved helped me get the most out of the experience.  I was able to bring it back to my family.” - Ellan C
