Communing with Aum

With Nayaswami Sagar and Sundara Traymar

April 5 - 7, 2024

Go Deep in the Cosmic Vibration

The more you listen to OM,
the more youwill feel yourself
entering into it.
In time you will feel it, and yourself, permeating the entire universe.

All knowledge is contained in that sound. You have only to ask for it,
and it will be given to you.

All power is contained in that sound. You have only to call on it,
and it will be given to you.

You will be able to attract success, true friends from past lives,
all understanding, all knowledge,
and all inspiration. 

When you are in that vibration,
you need never fear anything;
nothing and no one
will be able to harm you
—Swami Kriyananda

The All-pervading AUM
This retreat is designed for those with a deep interest in the all-pervading, omniscient vibration of AUM. You will acquire tools taught by Paramhansa Yogananda for merging into Sacred AUM. Through visualizations, guided activities, devotional AUM meditations, chanting, inspirational stories, and deep yogic teachings, the Cosmic Vibration will come alive for you as never before.

Create Your Own AUM Practice
The weekend will have a dynamic flow of lecture and experiential activities for deep communion with AUM. You’ll learn how to make your AUM practice more devotional, expansive, and God-reminding throughout the day. You will also hear how saints from all traditions have found God through His Holy Vibration.

Key Techniques
The Hong Sau technique and Energization Exercises are valuable aids for experiencing AUM. Learn how to go deep into them. For those who have received the Aum technique through Ananda there will be a review.

Learn from Long-time, Dedicated Meditators
Brahmachari Sagar and Saiganesh both have, for many years, inspired and taught hundreds of people with the deeper teachings of Paramhansa Yogananda. Gifted teachers, they will guide you deeper in your spiritual practices.

The Healing Balm of Spirit

Your weekend activities will be enhanced by the uplifted atmosphere of The Expanding Light Retreat. Visiting Ananda temples and the Crystal Hermitage Gardens, all steeped in holy vibrations, are highlights that will help you experience deeper meditations, and the rejuvenating power of AUM.
