Everyone experiences loss of some kind. Death. Divorce.
Loneliness.
Financial troubles.
Change is the only certainty in life.

When change comes, what is the right response? Fight or flight? To bend like the willow in the wind, or stand firm like the rock in the river?

It is easy to say, “Everything happens for the best.” What’s hard is to live that way!

We live in very tumultuous times. And there are lots of indications that things may get worse before they get better. Now is the time to develop inner strength. Not only for our own peace of mind, but so that we can be a beacon of hope for those we love.

  • Develop a personal way to connect with your own higher Self
  • Follow superconscious intuition rather than subconscious habit
  • Learn when to cooperate with, and when to resist, uninvited change
  • Face your fears with a clear mind and a calm heart
  • Accept reality and then, with willpower and devotion, create a new reality of your own choosing

An international speaker and author, Asha Nayaswami is a master teacher, considered by many to be one of the most nuanced and clear teachers of Yoga in the world today She has an unique ability to integrate spiritual teaching into daily, ordinary life, making spirituality practical and relatable.

Asha is a lifelong disciple of Paramhansa Yogananda, author of the spiritual classic, Autobiography of a Yogi. She studied and worked closely with his direct disciple, Swami Kriyananda for 45 years. She is a founding member of the spiritual community started by Swami Kriyananda in 1969 called Ananda Village, based on Yogananda’s dream of intentional spiritual communities for “simple living and high thinking.” She has served as one of the spiritual directors of another Ananda community, Ananda Palo Alto since 1987 and is also author of several books, Lightbearer, Swami Kriyananda As We Have Known Him, Loved and Protected: Stories of Miracles and Answered Prayers, and Ask Asha.

Asha means “hope” in Sanskrit. Her teachings are non-sectarian — sharing the truths that underlie the great religions. She draws freely from both the Bible and the Bhagavad Gita in her teaching.

Asha’s video talks on YouTube and audio recordings are a spiritual lifeline for people of all faiths around the world. Thousands of students have been immeasurably helped by her unusual insight and clarity. 

Asha is an amazing speaker. She has an incredible ability to explain the teachings so clearly that it’s really a joy to listen to her. I absolutely love to listen to her Sunday services.
