Recording: Higher Consciousness in Ancient Civilizations, May 23 2018

In the higher ages, the rishis established the four ashrams of life as a way to cure societal ills. There were the Students (age 0-24); the Householders (24-48); the Forest Dwellers (48-72); and the Sannyasi (72-120). Take a journey with Nischala Cryer, co-founder of Ananda University, as we explore what the higher ages might bring. Includes college tours in India, Egypt, Europe, and Peru. Some topics of the webinar are drawn from her new book, The Four Stages of Yoga: How to Lead a Fulfilling Life comes out April 15, 2018. More information on
