Overcoming Obstacles to Spiritual Growth
We’re guaranteed to have challenges in our lives since life is a school for learning our lessons. It doesn’t matter how many times we fall down, if we have also learned to get up again. This class will focus on tools of expansion so you can find blessings even in the midst of struggles. Come and explore how to make the most of life. Based on the teachings of Paramhansa Yogananda.
This class will include:
Ways to work with productive energy – opening to greater potential
Uncovering your “energy drains” and fixing them
Relaxation – reduce stress with simple techniques
Gaining balance in your life – nurturing a holistic approach
How to be grounded – standing on your own two feet
How to be flexible – flowing with the challenges of daily living
How to remain focused – cutting through the entanglements and distractions
