I know God can be realized through meditation, by intuitional perception, but not through the restless mind.
The Coming of Christ Consciousness
Advent is a time of preparation for the coming of the Christ Child. There are many advent traditions and rituals that have been passed down through the ages by the faithful, but what can we learn about preparing for Christ if we look through the eyes of a yogi?
Using the teachings of Yogananda and some fun and inspiring observations of the players in the Christmas story, we will explore how we can learn from their example and open our hearts to the newborn babe who offered the path to freedom and union with God.
Week #1 / Dec 2 – Hope and the Three Wise Men (click through for the video)
Week #2 / Dec 9 – Faith and Mary and Joseph
Week #3 / Dec 16 – Joy and the Shepherds
Week #4 / Dec 23 – Light and the Angels
Each week will include story telling, teachings from Yogananda and Swami Kriyananda, brief meditation and music.
