  1. Starting From the Beginning

    June 18, 2010 by Andrew Baerthel, Category: Audio & Video

    “Everybody starts at the beginning.” In this satsang talk, Swami Radhananda reads from the manuscript of her upcoming book. The book is based on reflections from her diary, spanning the time she has spent at the Ashram, including her first arrival in the 1970’s and the years of learning with her guru, Swami Radha. The excerpt that she reads traces the beginnings of her spiritual life, of her first steps on Ashram grounds, being introduced to yogic practices and reflection. She revisits many of the questions that she had begun asking at the time: “What does it mean to be a woman? Who am I?”

    In this satsang talk, Swami Radhananda speaks about the process of creating her upcoming book and the practice of reflection. The book is based on her reflections since first arriving at the Ashram in the 1970’s. (more…)

  3. The Aspirant: Asking Questions

    February 26, 2010 by Lightwaves, Category: Audio & Video

    Swami Radha“Watch what happens in your life, who you meet, whom you come in contact with… What can you learn from it?”

    In this video, from a series of Swami Radha’s talks on the Spiritual Aspirant, she talks about how questioning oneself is an important building block in one’s foundation for self-development. The path towards higher awareness is no different than being successful in business or athletics, where developing a thorough understanding of one’s direction and stamina is essential.

    Swami RadhanandaWhat is Yoga? In this Satsang talk, Swami Radhananda says the essence of Yoga emerges from the hidden desire to know, to understand and to realize who we really are.

    Yoga has to be experienced, it has to be lived…Yogic practices are the science of building the foundation, and progressing along your evolution to that place of self-realization, meeting with consciousness on that other level.”

    TwylaTwyla Kowalenko visited with us at the Ashram this Christmas for the Celebration of Light where she took time to look at her life in the Light. After swimming in the Fish pose she emerged with new insights that she will put into action in her life in Toronto.  Her story is a reminder of the power of the Yogic Teachings to heal those who are willing to dive into the ocean and shine the Light into the darkness.
