"Mindful Eating"
with Charlotte Hammond

Learn to make meals matter more! Join Charlotte Hammond, MS, RD, LDN, RYT, Registered Dietitian and Hatha Yoga instructor, in nourishing mind, body, and spirit with mindful eating practice. Mindful eating is, simply, bringing mindfulness to the eating experience. When we slow our eating, focus on food, and allow ourselves to be present, we are able to be truly nourished-- improving digestion, reducing stress, and connecting with the life that was sacrificed for our own. Mindful eating reminds us that with every bite, every day, we have an opportunity to reflect and experience deep nourishment. A small sampling of refreshments will be served for educational purposes.

Free to attend. All are welcome.

Kriya Yoga Seminary

New session begins in April!

The Temple of Kriya Seminary was developed more than 30 years ago as a bridge between the Temple of Kriya Yoga and dedicated souls who are called to a life of spiritual service; a life devoted to benefiting others. It is a home study course that will cultivate your spiritual unfoldment, prepare you for the priesthood, and help you to assist those who seek a deeper understanding of themselves, God, and Life.

One of the fundamental principles of Kriya Yoga is the understanding that each of us has the ability to be happy and fulfilled in this very lifetime. One of the best means of achieving this is to share our wisdom and compassion with the world around us.

Students are saying …

"Of all the words I have heard and read in my life, Sri Goswami Kriyananda's are the ones that continue to inspire me the most. What he distills from his thorough knowledge of the major mystical schools is a set of practical techniques that encourage self-awareness and compassion.

For many, it is his humor and down-to-earth sensibility that is so appealing; for others, it is his rigorously scientific and mathematical mind; for others still, it is the power of his insight regarding the fusion of the mundane and the spiritual. His is the brilliant achievement of the true Master."
