How we teach the course

Course is held in a classroom setting directed by our course coordinator described in About Us.

It spans 8 or more weeks from enrollment to give students time to read the course textbook.

Reading Period

8 or more weeks

Students read Paramahansa Yogananda’s Autobiography of a Yogi (AOY)* writing down a question or comment on each chapter.

Main Course

12 classes over 6 days totaling ~40 hours

We go through AOY chapter by chapter. We cover all course topics using students’ comments as spingboards for discussion. We heavily reference Ammachi and other modern day, fully Self-realized masters as well as Jesus, Buddha, Krishna and other past masters. Classes build on one another.
