Discovering and Maintaining Your Peace

with Rev. Bhagavan Metro
Price: $85.00–$125.00 – Sliding Scale Tuition

One of Sri Gurudev Swami Satchidananda's most profound teachings was: "Always maintain your Peace". The philosophy and practices of Yoga support us as we pursue that goal.

In this online workshop, you will learn and practice powerful techniques to discover the peace within you, which is the basis of all consciousness, and ways to maintain that peace.

Topics include:

  • What is the "I am" state and where do we find it?
  • How do we maintain peace once we have found it?
  • What are the obstacles to keeping our peace?
  • How does peace do all the work for us?
  • How does peace speed us to self-realization?

Live sessions with Reverend Bhagavan on Saturday at 9:30–11 am and 2–3:30 pm, and Sunday at 9:30–11 am ET.

The main program sessions are live and all sessions are in ET. The live sessions will be recorded and posted to the Online Programs access page if you are unable to join us live for that session. Recordings* are usually posted within one day and are available to program participants and presenter(s) only.
*You're welcome to turn off your camera if you don't wish your image to be recorded.

You will have access to the video recordings for 8 weeks after the program ends, until March 14.

In addition, you will have access to the Ashram’s Live Hatha Yoga classes at 5 pm ET and access to an online social community to connect and communicate with other participants about this course.

Steady meditation practice and at least a basic understanding of Jnana Yoga, the Yoga of wisdom and self-inquiry.
