Spring 2017: We bring the Ashram to Australia! Workshops offered on April 26 & 27, 2017.

Join Swami Samayananda to experience the rich & inspiring teachings of Canada’s oldest Ashram right in Wollongong.


Conscious Living in a Time of Change

Date: Wednesday 26 April, 6:30-8 pm

Cost: By donation

Location: Old Court House, Belmore Basin, Wollongong

Light supper provided

We live in a world of fast-paced, continual change – processing endless input and meeting demands for flexibility and quick decisions. As life speeds up, we can lose perspective and a deep sense of meaning. How can we bring ourselves back to our ‘grounding,’ to stillness and to connection to our ideals and purpose? Join us for this evening presentation… an informal evening to slow down and meet with Swami Samayananda.


Finding the Still Point

Date: Thursday 27 April, 9:30 am – 1 pm

Cost: $25

Location: Yoga Room, 60 Woodlawn Avenue, Mangerton

Strengthen your ability to pause, be still and maintain perspective in the midst of daily demands. Gain tools that will help you find balance and well-being in all that you do.
