Multi-Media Course - Variable Participation Levels 

Make giant leaps into Consciousness with Swami Nirmalananda in her 2019 Year-Long Programme.  This multi-media course includes articles, audios and phone calls as well as a weekend retreat.  She will be leading you through a sweet, yet powerful inner process that opens you to your Self.  In 2019 she is focusing on Shaktipat:  what it is and how it works, as well as how you maximize the blessings it brings.

Her Year-Long Programmes always deepen your experience of yoga’s spirituality, but this year’s programme promises more.  in addition to her yogic depth and insight, Swamiji brings her experiences as an American woman, mother and business owner.  For 40 years, she has traveled the world to immerse herself in yoga’s teachings, thus combining tremendous depth with clarity and practicality.

Choose Your Participation Level

Enroll at any time for Options 1 & 2.  Swamiji's articles and audios are available all year.

Option 1 provides you with Swamiji’s articles, while Option 2 gives you the articles and audios.

For those in the (Option 3) discussion group, Swamiji is able to customize the course to your needs and readiness.  By hearing your reports and understandings, she adds more information to the course, not only in the call but also in the written and audio lessons that follow.  Thus, those in the calls have the opportunity to sculpt the course as it progresses throughout the year.

The Retreat in Lokananda is always amazing (Option 4).  You’ve been studying all year with other yogis, learning together and learning from each other, so the weekend takes you to a whole new level.

I Want to Know!

The yearning to know is as important as the study you do.  Yet yearning alone won't get you there.  Without study, you are stuck in the loop of what you have already learned.  it's time to explore more options.
