Awaken to Your True Potential: A Yogananda Retreat

Inner Awakening Retreat

how-to-awaken-your-true-potentialLed by Stephen J. Hopson, a spiritual teacher, bestselling author and Awakening Specialist, this weekend retreat will offer spiritual seekers powerful tools to expand and deepen awareness of their divine purpose in life through meditation and spiritual principles.

Partially based on his best-selling book, “Obstacle Illusions,” and Yogananda’s “How to Awaken Your True Potential,” participants will dramatically alter their perceptions of their life’s challenges and transcend limiting beliefs.

We are in a period of massive global awakening where millions are waking up.  Do any of these characteristics of awakening apply to you?

Characteristics of Awakening

  • no longer watch or read negative-fear based news
  • recognize that “horrific events” that have happened to you actually have a divine purpose
  • difficulty doing things you don’t want to do or don’t enjoy
  • require more solitude than the average person
  • move with the flow of life rather than force your hand at “making things happen”
  • strong desire to help raise the Planet’s vibration and those of your own
  • laugh and smile a lot more
