Mantra Initiates Reunion: Rekindling the Fire for Spiritual Growth
with Swami Asokananda, E-RYT 500 and Special Guests
May 15 - 17, 2020
Receiving mantra initiation in the Integral Yoga Tradition was a critical juncture on your soul’s long, long journey. It was a big decision and commitment on your part.
Just as temples need to occasionally have their energies restored and re-infused, just as it is helpful for couples to renew their marriage vows, so also can disciples benefit from returning to their initial intention and re-establishing their desire for spiritual growth.
Some initiates may be practicing in environments that are not very supportive. Under such circumstances, it would be difficult for anyone to maintain their zeal. This weekend is a chance to have your enthusiasm reinvigorated and to be re-inspired by senior monks, ministers, ashramites, and each other.
Let’s come together to share how we are doing, practice together, and remind each other of the blessing of having a teacher, teachings, and a sangha.
“The glory of the name of God cannot be established through reasoning and intellect. It can certainly be experienced or realized, only through devotion, faith, and constant repetition.”—Master Sivananda
