    Summer Program

    New Online 2022 How-to-Live Summer Program for Children and Teens

    • Girls Program: July 11 – 13
    • Boys Program: July 14 – 16

    We are pleased to announce the launch of an online How-to-Live Summer Program, which we are able to offer free of charge.

    The theme of this year’s program will be “Inner Strength,” which arises within each one of us the more we learn to live in harmony with God’s presence. Children and teens will learn that our muscles of inner strength grow through meditation and when we practice bravery, courage, and standing up for ourselves in our daily lives.

    Through participation in the Energization Exercises, meditation, satsanga, and engaging interactive activities that illustrate Paramahansa Yogananda’s teachings, children and teens will be able to discover the inner strength that is so needed in today’s world.

    Online How-to-Live Summer Program Schedule

    The new online How-to-Live Summer Program is a three-day program conducted using Zoom, with two available time options for participation.

    • Girls Program: July 11 – 13 (8:00 – 10:00 a.m. or 3:00 – 5:00 p.m.)
    • Boys Program: July 14 – 16 (8:00 – 10:00 a.m. or 3:00 – 5:00 p.m.)

    Note: There are separate classes for children (ages 7 – 12) and teens (ages 13 – 18)

    If you have any questions, please email helpdesk@yogananda-srf.org or call 760-421-5151.

    We hope that this new online offering supports your children and teens in developing the inner strength that leads to a deeply satisfying inner and outer life. May God bless you and your family!

    Online How-to-Live Classes for Children

    12-Week Series Beginning March 26

    Paramahansa Yogananda felt deeply for the welfare of children and took a lifelong interest in their all-around education. Carrying on in this tradition, Self-Realization Fellowship offers a variety of How-to-Live programs that teach young people how to live a balanced life of meditation and right activity.

    Last fall we had a successful 6-week pilot series of online How-to-Live classes for children. As we build towards a formal launch of this program, we are pleased to announce the next phase of these classes: a 12-week series which will serve several hundred children.

    Journey to Lake Shrine Video Series

    Journey to Lake Shrine Video Series

    We are happy to present an online experience especially for youth: “Journey to Lake Shrine.” This five-part video series was created by SRF’s Youth Services Department in light of our in-person youth programs currently being on hold due to the pandemic, and as a way to connect youth around the world in an ever-greater bond of joyful spirituality and supportive fellowship.

    Each of the five episodes in the “Journey to Lake Shrine” series is structured as a day of learning and fun, similar to a day at an in-person youth program.

    Though created especially for youth, this special video series can be enjoyed by all ages. Look for further installments in upcoming weeks!

    “Journey to Lake Shrine” includes:

    • stories about Paramahansa Yogananda and the Lake Shrine's early days
    • information about Lake Shrine’s wildlife, unique buildings, and special features
    • short guided meditations led by monastics and affirmation practices to help youth easily and effectively apply “how-to-live” principles.
