  1. Eileen Reviews: Carried by a Promise

    December 21, 2010 by Eileen, Category: Reflection & Articles

    We are all leaders of our own lives, and the lessons Swami Radhananda has shared inspire me – to trust my intuition to guide myself with strength where I need to go.

    Carried by a Promise, Swami Radhananda’s new spiritual memoir, begins with her first exposure to the Divine Light Invocation in spring, 1977. As she stands in a circle in the dark, dingy church basement in Lethbridge, Alberta, she sees streaming droplets of light… shining bits like heaven’s rain. This first scene in her ambitious and far-reaching account of spiritual life demonstrates Radhananda’s natural receptivity and visual imagination, both of which guide and instruct her throughout her transformation from Mary Ann McDougall, mother and educator, to Radhananda, president of the Yasodhara Ashram in Kootenay Bay, B.C.

  2. The Path of Liberation

    “We are unique in the way we interpret the Kundalini system, because we’ve all had different life experiences. When we start to teach, we come from that place of knowing that the system is going to work, and that what we know from our own experience is what will help others too.”

    Following the recent Kundalini & Dream Teacher Certification, Swami Radhananda gave a satsang talk about her first experiences of the Kundalini system while taking a course led by Swami Radha, called The Path of Liberation. In this video, she reads from her upcoming book of memoirs and invites us to open the kundalini symbols for ourselves and bring them to life.

    Canadian micro-publisher experiments with sustainability

    July 2, 2010 by Gef Tremblay, Category: News & Events

    I have been working for timeless publishing for many years now, at first through my position at ascent magazine, and now through my involvement with the marketing and digital publishing of  books and audio recordings. Throughout all these years, the concept of ‘sustainable publishing’ has been talked about, dissected, analyzed, experimented with, and only now am I starting to have a better grasp of this multifaceted idea that is ‘sustainable publishing’.

  4. Eileen Reviews: Time to be Holy

    a deeper look into a timeless classic

    June 16, 2010 by Eileen, Category: Reflection & Articles

    “Take time to be holy”, Swami Radha says on the first page of her book of the same title. “Make this one of your key sentences for conducting your future life.”

    I look up after I read this, to think about what she has said.  She would be very happy to know that I have stopped to reflect.  Taking time to be holy is not what you might assume. It is not prayer, or mantra, or attending church, nor is it singing a hymn or meditating.  Swami Radha defines it further.  “Take time off to think, to reflect….don’t be so busy that you don’t have time to think.”
