Sunburst is dedicated to personal and planetary awakening and transformation through spiritual practice, conscious living and sustainable Earth stewardship. Our purpose is to nurture each seeker’s direct experience of the divine. This is Self-realization! We are cooperative communities of men, women and children and a global intentional fellowship. Our endeavors include organic gardening and farming and a Sanctuary dedicated to higher learning and conscious living. Founded in 1969, our universal teachings are based upon the message of founder Norman Paulsen and his teacher Paramahansa Yogananda. Explore our site – discover soul-awakening teachings.
