Invitation to Kriya Yoga 5-Day Retreat with Kambiz Naficy

We are pleased to announce the Second five-day Joy of Life retreat in Atlanta, GA, USA from 12-18 June 2014.

The JoL retreats are a blissful immersion into Kriya Yoga practice of up to six hours a day, tempered by mild Hatha Yoga exercises and communion with nature. Kambiz will be presenting a set of talks that include Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras, the Spanda Karikas, and medicinal scriptures related to Ayurveda. Kambiz Naficy will also be expanding on other topics such as the understanding of the quantum God, the smooth integration of your material and spiritual life, measuring your progress on the spiritual path, inner-contentment and how to develop it, the meaning of true self-love, and the fastest route to enlightenment or Samadhi.

Kambiz Naficy and his Joy of LifeOrganization promote joy and well being through the ancient science of Kriya Yoga, the nurturing of empowering beliefs, and the manifestation of success in a quantum world.

At this 10-minute video called “Art of Happiness” Kambiz speaks about The foundations of lasting happiness: Right Mind, Right Love, Right Livelihood, Right Balance, and Dharma:

The retreat will take place at The Lodge at Simpsonwood Retreat and Conference Center.

The Lodge at Simpsonwood is a Christian adult and family retreat center nestled in the heart of metro Atlanta, Georgia. Surrounded by 227 acres of woodlands and walking trails along the Chattahoochee River, The Lodge at Simpsonwood provides an ideal location for conferences and retreats. Designed to harmonize with nature, all facilities on the attractive campus are within easy walking distance of one other. Currently, Joy of Life students will reside and experience the 5 day workshop at Gibson Lodge.

When you arrive into Hartsfield–Jackson Atlanta International Airport, Joy of Life will have someone standing by during a three hour time span to pick all participants up and bring you to the retreat center approximately 45 minutes away.
