In modern life, many of us are caught in patterns of distraction and dissatisfaction, unable to find lasting peace and inner fulfillment. This discontentment often stems from ignorance of our essential nature, leading to personal and planetary suffering. But without knowing how to access that we look everywhere for it, in ways that do not satisfy the heart.

Yogacharya Ellen Grace O’Brian helps people from all walks of life discover a path to knowing and embodying our essential nature, and with it a profound experience of freedom, wisdom and inner wholeness. Her time-tested method, rooted in the tradition of Kriya Yoga, is accessible and inspiring both for newcomers to inner work as well as experienced spiritual practitioners.

The programs below offer a variety of entry points to this path, with classes, courses, and events designed to empower your growth toward a more awakened and soul-nourishing life.
