The Expanding Light Retreat


At the Expanding Light, a retreat is likened to a spiritual seed which, watered with consistent practice, will eventually blossom into joy and peace - plant that seed by going on one of the many regular retreats on offer at this dedicated center in northern California, founded in the sixties as part of a spiritual community dedicated to the teachings of renowned Indian sage Paramhansa Yogananda, author of “Autobiography of a Yogi”. The center emphasizes the spiritual essence of Yoga, be it in asanas, meditation, pranayama, or philosophy, and teaches Kriya Yoga’s energization and affirmation techniques and further steps in meditation. You are free to take part in the various group activities, or you can schedule private instruction, spiritual counselling, individual prayer, or healing massages. The natural grounds on 800 acres in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada mountains open up a space of beauty and tranquility to help you step out of your busy life and into more expansive wisdom. Accommodation indoors is in standard or deluxe rooms (private and shared), or you can opt to stay in a cabin or your own tent, and three delicious vegetarian meals can be enjoyed on every day of your stay.
