Weekend Retreat: Vedanta in Daily Life

Friday, April 12, 2024 Sunday, April 14, 2024 PDT

IN PERSON OR ONLINE
With senior teacher Swami Jnaneswariananda

You are the architect of your own fate. You are the master of your own destiny. You can do and undo things. You sow an action and reap a tendency. You sow a tendency and reap a habit. You sow a habit and reap your character. You sow your character and reap your destiny. Therefore, destiny is your own creation. You can undo it if you like – destiny is a bundle of habits.”
—Swami Sivananda

Vedanta is the science and the art of living one’s life at its highest and the best. It is not a question of abandoning something or holding onto something, but of a change in the vision of life. Vedanta is as simple as life; and it is also as complex as life is. 

Swami Jnaneswariananda joined the Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Centers in 1995 and has been director of centers and ashrams in Canada and Italy. She teaches Hatha Yoga, Meditation, Anatomy, and Vedanta at Teacher Training Courses in North America, Italy and India. Swami Jnaneswariananda took vows of Sannyas in 2001. She is currently a senior teacher at the Yoga Farm in Grass Valley. She teaches with great enthusiasm and humor.

Swami Jnaneswariananda has a PhD in Biomedical Engineering and is an excellent teacher of anatomy and physiology and yoga philosophy. She is a senior teacher and director of the Sivananda Ashram Yoga Farm and is part of Sivananda Institute of Health and Yoga (SIHY), the health branch of the International Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Centers.
