Self-Awareness, Karma & Reincarnation: How they Function, How Yogananda Taught them

Saturday, Nov 9   
1:30 – 4:30 pm
with Maitri Smithhisler and Eric Shaw

Learn what the masters taught about the reality of life, death and rebirth

Does reincarnation seem like murky science?

Have you ever wanted it clearly explained–in terms of yogic metaphysics and Yogananda’s thought?

Yogananda taught reincarnation through delightful stories illustrating its principles.

In this workshop, we’ll start with yoga postures that explore the cycling of the body, then learn in detail about India’s 2500-year-old doctrine of karma and rebirth–accessing texts like the Bhagavad Gita and the writings of Swami Kriyananda–including the wisdom of Paramhansa Yogananda.

We are pleased to introduce Eric Shaw to our center to teach along side Maitri Smithhisler for an informative and inspiring afternoon!
