This retreat is open to all qualified Ananda Kriyabans and first time initiates, but everyone is invited to join us for the Sunday Service and Indian Banquet as we celebrate together our new kriyabans!

This fall, Ananda in Texas is blessed to be offering for the third time, an amazing opportunity to come together as Kriyabans IN PERSON for a three-day Kriya retreat. During this time, we will be able to experience together the deep practice of Kriya meditation facilitated by Nayaswami Pranaba. First Kriya initiation as well as all the Higher Kriyas with reviews will be offered to qualified participants. (contact [email protected] for more info on initiations)

There will be ample time for meditation, nature and satsang as we enjoy the beauty and quiet of the Springhill Retreat Center located in Richardson, Texas. (View schedule also on the bottom of this page) All meals served will be vegetarian with special dietary needs taken into consideration.
