Ananda is a global movement based on the teachings of Paramhansa Yogananda, who showed how everyone can realize God in their daily lives as a tangible, loving reality. Ananda was founded in 1968 by Yogananda’s direct disciple Nayaswami Kriyananda, widely recognized as one of the leading spiritual teachers in the world today.
Yogananda’s teachings embrace the truths that underlie all the great religions. People from all faiths and backgrounds are welcome at Ananda. We invite you to join us to experience the joy of your own being. You can learn more about Ananda Worldwide at www.ananda.org.
The Ananda Center of Sonoma County offers spiritual inspiration and support for truth-seekers, including Sunday services, satsangs, kirtans and meditation classes. The owner of Living Tree Yoga studio, Therese Smith, has generously offered the use of her yoga studio. This beautiful space with a glass wall looking out on a peaceful garden has wonderful vibrations and was built by disciples of Yogananda.
We meet every other Sunday at Living Tree Yoga, located at 216 Benton Street in Santa Rosa. All Sunday Services and Satsangs begin 10:00 am.
Sunday Service includes chanting, a short meditation, readings, affirmations, a talk, and the Festival of Light.
Sunday Satsang is a more inward gathering with chanting, readings, a half hour of meditation, affirmations and healing prayers.
See the Calendar for Sunday Service and Sunday Satsang dates.
