“Awake” The Life of Yogananda

Saturday, June 24th 2017, 6pm-8pm, $10

You’re invited to join the RYK community for a night of nourishment for the mind & spirit by enjoying an uplifting and inspiring movie. Get cozy, grab a bowl of popcorn, and enjoy the show!

We will be screening the award-winning film about the life of one of the greatest yoga masters and mystics of our time: Paramahansa Yogananda.

AWAKE is an unconventional biography about Paramahansa Yogananda, the world-renowned author of the spiritual classic Autobiography of a Yogi who brought yoga and meditation to the West in the 1920s. Many highly influential people — including Steve Jobs, George Harrison, and Russell Simmons, all of whom are featured in the film — have been deeply impacted by Yogananda.

In bringing the once-secret techniques of yoga to the West, Yogananda was committed to democratizing these teachings. “He knew the power of initiative,” says renowned Yoga and Ayurveda instructor Mas Vidal, who is also featured in AWAKE. “He didn’t wait for anybody to get this wisdom out.”

Here’s what the New York Times wrote about AWAKE: “Compelling… enough to make a modern soul look inwards.”

The LA Times calls it: “a vivid, elegantly assembled portrait… an absorbing glimpse into the life and times of the world’s first superstar swami.”

Come and enjoy a beautiful movie for your mind and heart! Light refreshments will be served. Yoga mats and cushions are provided to sit on and you are welcome to bring pillows or a blanket to make yourself more comfortable!
