An extraordinary opportunity to discover the underlying principles and inner teachings which are the basis of the Western wisdom tradition.
Transformation of the Dragon
In the Western tradition, we slay the dragon, as in “St. George and the Dragon.” In the Eastern tradition, however, we do not slay the dragon, but transform it, much like the ox, which is not to be slain but trained to cultivate the food-field. Learn how to transform the “dragon” of your mind-body complex and break free of deep-seated conditionings of your past-lives and hurts of this lifetime.

Mantra and Your Mind: Integration through Sound
Mantras are thought forms that generate a specific vibration and stimulate the mind. Their vibratory sounds feed oxygen to the brain, prana to the chakras and awaken spiritual consciousness. The use of mantra is fundamental to Kriya yoga practice because it can soften confining karma and manifest positive past-life karma.

Kriology- The Sacred Science of Creation
Kriology is a system for experiencing a transformation in consciousness, which will enrich your life on every level. Its unique approach is rooted in karma (the law of causation), and how karma is generated and activated, and can be softened, modified or dissolved. Kriology deals directly with your mind, its structure and dynamics. Embodied within is a mystical psychology which offers a profound recognition of how you create and sustain the circumstances of your life.
Kriya Yoga and Depth Psychology
Kriya Yoga is a path of study and meditative attunement that induces a direct perception of the nature of consciousness, the structure and dynamics of the mind and Life itself. It is a system of psycho-biological techniques that rebalance the mental/emotional patterns of the past and cultivate greater self-awareness. Embodied within it is a mystical psychology that reveals how we create, sustain, and can transform the experiences of our lives.
The Mystical Science of Kriya Yoga
There are as many paths to enlightenment as there are individual souls. Recognizing that spiritual unfoldment manifests through four intentional actions, the ancient sages designed four primary paths to cultivate your spiritual memory, and thus the realization of greater health, happiness, and spiritual fulfillment. These four primary paths are:
- Karma Yoga — The path of unselfish service
- Jnana Yoga — The path of esoteric knowledge
- Prema Yoga — The path of love and devotion toward all life
- Raja Yoga — The path of inner practice and mystical techniques
The primary purpose of these lessons is to help you establish a firmer foundation for spiritual evolution. Each lesson contains approximately 20 pages that systematically explore the fundamental principles and practices of the mystical science of Kriya Yoga. The lessons include a focus for each month, recommendations for additional study, and a series of spiritual practices. The practices include postures, breath work, meditation techniques, and kriya ritual. Each lesson also includes an affirmation, prayer, and mantra for the month. In addition, you receive detailed instructions for each technique and a Sanskrit glossary that provides a quick and easy reference for the terms used in each lesson.
