It is our pleasure to announce that Self-Realization Fellowship monastic disciples will be visiting Washington, D.C., April 3–5, 2020, to meet with members and friends of Paramahansa Yoganandaji’s spiritual family.

On Friday, April 3, we will have a Free Public Lecture starting at 8:00 pm. Please go to the Facebook or Eventbrite pages to reserve your free ticket. The Kriya Yoga Teachings of Paramahansa Yogananda will be presented, along with a Guided Meditation. A Reception will follow where you can meet and greet all attendees, including the SRF monastics. All are welcome.

During this weekend there will be inspirational programs, meditation classes, and a Kriya Yoga initiation. We hope you will be able to join us for this time of divine fellowship—a wonderful opportunity to commune with God and Gurus, and to delve deeper in the understanding and practice of Paramahansaji’s teachings.

Our Center is blessed to receive frequent visits from SRF monastics. The SRF resident monastic of SRF Greenfield Retreat in Front Royal, VA, Sister Brahmani, leads our morning services several times a year and attends the potluck luncheon and social that follows. SRF monastics also frequently lead our All-Day Christmas Meditation.

Occasionally, SRF monastics will conduct weekend long conducted retreats at our Center where they will conduct review classes of some of the SRF meditation techniques, give How-to-Live talks from the writings of Paramahansa Yogananda and conduct meditation and Sunday services. Other times, they visit and lead our Thursday evening service.
