Kriya, Karma, and the Chakras:Each samskar constitutes a subtle vortex of energy. There are countless such vortices in the spine. . . The energy of these vortices, when released to flow upward, combines to produce a mighty river of energy before which no obstacle can stand.” Swami Kriyananda


This retreat dedicated to the Higher Kriyas begins on Friday afternoon, and includes initiations in the Second Kriya and the Third and Fourth Kriyas on Saturday. It concludes with a revision of the Third and Fourth Kriyas on Sunday morning.

If you have already received the Third and Fourth Kriya Initiations, this weekend will be an opportunity for you to clarify your understanding, deepen your practice, and lovingly support those who are newly entering into the higher dimensions of Kriya.

Please note: it is in the Second Initiation that the blessing and actual initiation occurs. Therefore participating in this initiation is required to participate in the Third and Fourth initiation.

For many years Mayadevi has been involved with the Kriya Sangha, helping devotees prepare for Kriya initiation, then following them in the proper execution of the techniques.

Mayadevi spends most of her time with correspondence and talking to devotees about their spiritual lives. Her joy and satisfaction is found in helping others to deepen their understanding of kriya and to practice it with ease.
