Multi-Media Course - Variable Participation Levels

Begin at any time!  Articles & Audios available all year

You yearn for the highest inner experience, while your relationships, work and life are also important to you.  How do you attain the highest while living in the world?  In 2020, explore this question and its many answers with Gurudevi Nirmalananda. 

These teachings are about your quality of life, both outside and inside.  Topics she will cover include:

  • Practicalities: Life in the World
  • Mysticism:  Beyond the World
  • The Juxtaposition of Opposites
  • Tantric Interweaving:  Inside & Outside
  • Pleasure, Pain & Sex
  • Working Both Ends Against the Middle
  • The Incredible Ease of Enlightenment

Gurudevi's ability to lead you through the process comes from her years as a disciple.  Grounded in the teachings and practices, she mastered both inside and outside at the same time.  Learn how from her in our upcoming course:

  • Listen to Gurudevi's Free Intro Call
  • Course Begins March 24 2020; enrollment continues through November 15

This multi-media course includes articles, audios and phone calls as well as a weekend retreat.  Choose your level of participation in our four enrollment options.  Gurudevi will be leading you through a sweet, yet powerful inner process that opens your heart and mind, grounding you in the inner infinity in a whole new way.

Choose Your Participation Level

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

Option 1 provides you with Gurudevi'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.
