Lecture Tours and Regional Retreats

Attend free lectures and regional retreats based on the teachings of Paramahansa Yogananda, presented by SRF monks and nuns.

Cultivating Divine Fellowship Around the World

Each year Self–Realization Fellowship monks and nuns visit cities around the world to help fulfill the ever-growing demand for Paramahansa Yogananda's soul-liberating teachings. They conduct weekend retreats and inspirational programs that include classes on Paramahansaji's "How-to-Live" teachings, review of the SRF yoga techniques, group meditations, kirtan chanting, audio-visual presentations, and Kriya Yoga initiation ceremonies.

Lecture tours offer an introduction for newcomers to the teachings of Paramahansa Yogananda, and in-depth guidance in the SRF meditation techniques for Lessons students.

Member programs and regional retreats include classes on the SRF meditation techniques and provide opportunities for group meditation and satsanga (informal talks).

Programs also cover many other important aspects of Paramahansa Yogananda's teachings, such as:

Thank you for sending the monastics to instruct, inspire, and encourage us....The healing effect of all monastic visits continues long after the Brothers depart, and I am profoundly grateful for this time of divine communion and fellowship.
