For those who come here for a precious time aside from their demanding life circumstances, the Ananda Reno-Tahoe Meditation Group is providing the atmosphere for the experience of self-realization, the awareness that our true nature is joyful, loving, peaceful and calm. Through the ancient practice of meditation and Kriya Yoga, brought to the West by Paramhansa Yogananda, you can expand your sense of harmony and oneness with the universe and your fellow beings and listen to God speaking from within.
Our meditations are open to everyone. From beginners to advanced practitioners, all can rejoice in the experience of sharing, listening and silence. Some evening meditations are guided by a visiting Nayaswami from Ananda Village in Nevada City, CA, which is an intentional spiritual community based on the teachings of Paramhansa Yogananda. Ananda Village was founded in 1968 by Swami Kriyananda, a direct disciple of Yogananda.
A typical evening of sadhana (spiritual practices) with the Reno-Tahoe meditation group might include Yogananda's Energization Exercises, devotional chanting (kirtan), spiritual readings, meditation and prayer. On special ocassions, we enjoy a scrumptous vegetarian potluck.
We currently meet on the first saturday of the month in downtown Reno. We also meet from time-to-time in Carson City at the historic home of Michael and Deborah.
To get complete details and directions to all current and future events, we suggest either calling Michael and Deborah at 775-461-3315 or emailing us at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
