About Darshan Lotichius

Jan Lotichius was born in Holland, in 1960. In 1985 he met Swami Kriyananda in Italy who gave him the spiritual name Darshan and since then, as a member of Ananda Sangha, the spiritual movement founded by Kriyananda, and as an active practitioner of the meditation techniques brought to the West by the great Master from India, Paramhansa Yogananda, Darshan has been experimenting with integrated ways of applying spirituality to every field of social life. In 1992 he founded the Ananda Rome center which he co-directed for several years. Darshan has graduated in Italian and French literature at the Amsterdam and Rome universities and in music and violin at the Bari conservatory. He is a creative writer and choir director. In the late eighties he read Kriyananda’s book Education for Life and since then he has tried to integrate this approach to child education in his many actitivities with children, both as a teacher and a father. Darshan is a founding member of the Living Wisdom School Assisi which he co-directed for three years. He has conducted many summer camps at the Ananda Assisi community and is currently expanding his activities to Holland and America.
