Midweek Seminar: Going Deep into Being and Becoming

with Swami Gurucharanananda, "Mataji"

September 18 - 20, 2018

Life offers us an experience of infinite possibilities. It is a divine play; we are all actors, living out our unique script in each moment. The primary question to focus on throughout this cosmic drama is: are we becoming more peaceful and loving as a result of all that we do?

Go deep and explore the great potential of the script we’re following in this play. Is it serving our highest good? Is it making us more peaceful and joyful? Let’s make it so! During this seminar, you’ll receive guidance in meditation and pranayama from one of Yogaville’s beloved senior sannyasins (monks), Mataji. Join her as she shares the wisdom acquired during her years of experience in spiritual practice.

Midweek Seminars

Midweek Seminars not only offer special lectures to help you deepen your practice, but also allow the time, space, and guidance to relax and go within. This is the perfect opportunity to embrace the quiet of the Ashram and the knowledge of its senior teachers.


Mataji is a great yogi master. She teaches extremely well and it is a joy to be in her presence.

Mataji was a wonderful, compassionate guide for the class. Her stories [allowed] me to see how I can implement my meditation practice into my daily life.

Mataji is the real deal. She truly is a real teacher, and has such love which shows in every answer and every teaching. It was a privilege to be in her company.
