23 – 25 February, 2024  Kriya Yoga Initiation Retreat | STOCKHOLM (English)                                         Free Public Lecture: Friday 23 February 19:30

Join us for a special initiation weekend in Stockholm, with Swami Sahajananda Giri. Kriya Yoga is an ancient method of living and meditation that cultivates body, mind, intellect and awareness of the soul, using powerful meditative and yogic disciplines. It helps us to experience the three divine qualities of light, vibration and sound using concentration, posture and breathing. This develops a one-pointed mind, which enables us to penetrate the deepest levels of consciousness and change our lives.

 Kriya Yoga teaches us that any action, kri, is done by ya, the indwelling soul. It is a universal spiritual discipline that crosses all divisions and boundaries. 

For newly initiated people we offer the price of 150 euros initiation donation, no extra retreat fee for the weekend. For the initiation ceremony you would need to bring three offerings. The three offerings are five fruits, which represent the fruits gained from activities throughout life; five flowers, which represent the five senses; and a financial donation of 150 euros. The three offerings represent the causal, astral, and gross bodies, respectively. You can find more information about the initiation and Kriya Yoga here.

People already initiated into the Kriya Yoga technique are also very welcome. Retreat fee for already initiated is 100 euros for the weekend. A free public lecture about Kriya Yoga will be held on friday evening February 23 at 7:30 pm.

Location: Hälsans Hus, Fjällgatan 23B, 116 28 Stockholm. For the program schedule please click on the link here or contact us. For more information and registration email us at info@lakesideretreat.org
