God Alone
The Practical Wisdom of Sister Gyanamata
28-30 July with Nayaswami Devarshi, Brahmachari Jemal and Acharya Dharana

“She is of God, and God is with her. I hope that you might all have a little of the understanding that she has.” — Paramhansa Yogananda

Paramhansa Yogananda’s most advanced woman disciple, Sister Gyanamata, left behind a spiritual treasure-house filled with gems of clarity and wisdom to shed light on the difficulties that come to us in life. Most of those gems are contained in the book “God Alone,” which was also her life-long ideal and motto.

During this weekend retreat we’ll highlight and discuss some of the most helpful spiritual gems in this book, and how we can apply them to help integrate and express our spirituality in our daily lives. We’ll focus primarily on:

  • Right Attitude
  • The Guru-Disciple Relationship
  • Loyalty
  • Devotion
  • Courage
  • Endurance
