Do What You Love, Love What You Do
Apr 2 @ 3:00 pm – 5:00 pm
Do What You Love, Love What You Do @ Ananda Dallas Meditation Center | Addison | Texas | United States

Are you loving what you do and doing what you love?

In this workshop Donna will take you through the process to help you answer that question. Everyone’s life is based upon a set of values. How can you be yourself if you don’t know yourself? This is an important question for everyone.

Are you an effective in all areas of your life? If you don’t know your highest values, you’re not as successful as you could be. 

Working with Donna, you’ll discover the areas in your life where your values are already demonstrating your life’s purpose. More importantly, you’ll discover the areas where they are not. When you know your highest values, you will activate your genius, attract new clients, increase your income, deepen relationships and ultimately, discover who you truly are. The values determination process and Donna’s coaching makes the difference between living a life of inspiration or one of quiet desperation.

Fire Ceremony and Purification
Apr 3 @ 9:00 am – 9:45 am
Fire Ceremony and Purification @ Ananda Dallas Meditation & Yoga Center | Addison | Texas | United States

Fire Ceremony

Fire has historically symbolized purification and transformation. All ceremonies are as meaningful and powerful as our faith and sincerity when we participate in them. In this ancient and revered vedic ceremony we light the fire and chant two sacred mantras together, each one repeated seven times.

Meditation

Following the fire ceremony there is an approximately thirty minute silent meditation. During the meditation participants may use the burning bowl to offer up a prayer or intention and ask God to help change those traits and behaviors that are obstacles to spiritual growth.

All are welcome to attend.

Sunday Service
Apr 3 @ 10:00 am – 11:30 am
Sunday Service @ Ananda Dallas Meditation & Yoga Center | Addison | Texas | United States

The Sunday worship service at Ananda is inspired by the meditation tradition of the East and the ancient teachings of mystical Christianity, with inspirational readings from both the Bible and the Bhagavad Gita. Service includes music, group chanting and meditation, an inspirational talk drawn from the writings of Paramhansa Yogananda, and a unique blessing ceremony called the Festival of Light.

Before service begins at 10 am, you are welcome to a period of silent meditation from 9 to 9:45 am. Those who wish can also participate in a ceremony of individual prayer for freedom or clarity about a personal challenge, called the Purification Ceremony. You may offer that prayer at the altar.

Our hearts and our sanctuary are open to people of all faiths, races, orientations, truth-seekers, people exploring meditation for the first time, and anyone who seeks a deeper understanding of the meaning and purpose of life.

After Service, you are invited to meet the ministers and others in the congregation over snacks in the foyer.
