Self-Awareness and Personal Growth

Have you ever looked at your life and extracted lessons or guidance you recieved during the day? When we examine our lives more deeply on an everyday basis, there is a lot more we can learn about ourselves. This also helps us achieve our potential. Paramhansa Yogananda highly recommends this practice. He said, “You should record your thoughts and aspirations daily." 

We can accomplish much more on the spiritual path when we focus our energy in a systematic way. The practice of keeping a journal can help us to watch our lives more consciously, carefully, and deliberately.

This course gives you a deeper understanding of Spiritual Journaling, through classes, handouts, and many experiential exercises. Add to your current practice, or begin afresh with the power of keeping a journal.

"In true self-analysis, is, the greatest art of progress."- Paramhansa Yogananda

Writing about the day’s tests and lessons helps clear our mental state. This process also helps resolve experiences, ridding the mind of restlessness and worry. Yogananda said that one of the most effective ways to develop will power is to engage in creative writing everyday.

The purpose of this course is to help us work with ourselves in ways to heal every part of our life. To learn the lessons of life we need to integrate not only the glorious moments, but also the wounds. This course is structured into 4 units of: goal-setting, energy work to build a foundation, deeper contemplation to live a more examined life and self-healing to bring all the elements together! This is a journey deep within to achieve your full potential.

"At the end of each day you should sit down for a few minutes and review the day.” Say to yourself, “In the battlefield of today’s life, who won—my good or my negative tendencies? What have I learned? What have I seen? Am I more joyful today than I was yesterday? If not, what can I do to change that?" Paramhansa Yogananda
