1 pm Q&A

For many people, there is little distinction between work and service. For those searching to connect with the Divine, all work becomes service (seva) when it done with the thought of serving God alone. Seva is our love for God, the purest love of our hearts, expressed through all activity. It is love in action. Join Nayaswamis Jyotish and Devi for a day of deep meditation, satsang over brunch, then a talk and Q&A based on Jyotish’s soon to be published book, Ananda Seva.

*Guest presenter program costs apply to everyone, including tithing members. Scholarships available upon request.
