A Spiritual Gap Year

Before college, career, or during transitions, discover your Self, your passions, and the world…..

autobiography of a yogi

All participants learn a deeper meditation technique called the path to Kriya Yoga, the ancient science of the Rishis, which was brought to the west by the great yogi, Paramhansa Yogananda, whose groundbreaking book, “Autobiography of a Yogi” chronicled the many miracles of the hidden saints of India.

Many of our programs are based on “The Yuga Cycles of Time”, the 24,000 year Vedic Calendar that is comprised of four descending and ascending “Yugas” that repeat themselves throughout time itself. Viewed through the lens of The Yuga Cycles, life here on earth makes more sense, and we can compassionately address history, our present circumstances and the future of our planet.

You’ll have the chance to experience life in a spiritual community that’s been in existence for over 50 years. You’ll have the chance to travel internationally with like-minded friends to experience other cultures and their spirituality. And you’ll receive academic and leadership training that will help you on your journey.
