Give Peace a Chance: A Meditation Reboot

with Swami Divyananda Ma, E-RYT 500
Price: $125.00

Nothing sweetens life so much as a meditation practice. Join Swami Divyananda for a meditation reboot, with eleven days of practice progressing from 15 minutes of silent meditation on the first day to 45 on the last day. Time will also be devoted to the inspirations, instructions, and principles which put us firmly on the pathway to peace.

Beginners are welcome to this online workshop. For those who are new to meditation, concurrent sessions will be offered for the first 3 days to provide basic instruction and offer support. These beginner sessions will be led by Brother Arjavan.

Whether you are brand-new to meditation or experienced-but-struggling, these sessions will address your needs and give you the tools and support to sustain and advance a meditation practice.

During this online meditation program, you will have access to live lecture and meditation sessions with Swami Divyananda at 6:45–7:30 pm ET each day, plus Q&A sessions on May 11 and May 17 (sessions on these two days will be at 6:45–8:15 pm 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 July 12. Lifetime access to this course is available for a $25.00 fee.

In addition, you will have access to the Ashram’s Live Hatha Yoga classes at 5 pm ET, recorded Ashram meditations, and inspiring talks with Sri Swami Satchidananda. You will also have access to an online social community to connect and communicate with other participants about this course.

Senior Sannyasi, E-RYT 500

Swami Divyananda

Swami Divyananda Ma, E-RYT 500, has had a wealth of experience teaching Integral Yoga around the world since 1973. She has taught at corporations, universities, the Commonwealth Cancer Center, and for the Dr. Dean Ornish Reversing Heart Disease programs. She has also served as one of Integral Yoga’s Basic Hatha teacher trainers.

Swami Divyananda Ma took monastic vows in 1975 from the great saint and yogi, Sri Swami Satchidananda. Over the years she has served as the director of the Integral Yoga Institutes in Los Angeles, San Francisco, and as Ashram Manager at Yogaville. She also served for ten years as the director of the Integral Yoga Institute in Coimbatore, India; this immersion into the South Indian culture has given depth to her understanding and practice of Yoga.

Now an itinerant monk, Swami Divyananda is constantly “on the road.” She leads the annual Sacred India Tours to sacred sites in India in addition to international Yoga retreats and trainings. See more at sacredindiatours.org
