Today, more than ever, young women and men are change-makers, building new realities for themselves and their communities. All over the world, youth are driving social change and innovation, claiming respect for their fundamental human rights and freedoms, and seeking new opportunities to learn and work together for a better future.

Paramhansa Yogananda, author of the spiritual classic, Autobiography of a Yogi, along with many other books, including Man’s Eternal QuestHow to Be a Success, How to Have Courage, Calmness and Confidence, one realizes that he recognized this current reality even back in the 1940’s.

The upcoming Ananda Youth workshop will provide the framework for constructive platforms and partnerships to be developed with youth.  It is built on the premise that youth will carry the next wave forward. In our World Brotherhood Communities, envisioned by Paramhansa Yogananda and made reality by His direct disciple Swami Kriyananda, will be carried forward by the young people at Ananda today.

In this workshop, topics which will be shared and discussed are:

What is Fate?

During our youth we sometimes question what it is we truly believe. Especially in India, we tend to think of “Fate “ as the reason for things that happen to us, our life direction, and the people and situations in our lives. We’ll dive into this topic, and take a look at how much we should accept, or not, the belief in “fate.”

The Mind- Repository of Infinite Power

In this section, we will learn to tap into the unlimited potential that human mind has to offer.

Controlling your Destiny

Our thoughts, words and deeds, past and present, forge the chain of our destiny. Let’s take a look at the vast tapestry of our lives, and understand how one can become a “Master of our Destiny.”

Spiritualizing your Career

Spirituality is not in contradiction to career; in fact it is the very basis of a successful career.

Maximizing your Potential

In this section we’ll explore the tools can we use, and the skills can we develop, to move us toward achieving our highest potential.

“It isn’t academic education alone that makes people happy. It is “how-to-live” education-how to develop a harmonius,moral life, stronger will power, and spiritual understanding-that will bring happiness.”

– Paramhansa Yogananda.
