Those who engage in it successfully will never have to experience anxiety or discouragement but will be able to remain calm and peaceful in all circumstances.”

IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT THE 2020 US FESTIVAL

Due to the current COVID-19 situation, this year's US National Festival will be streamed. The Festival Organizers are making this decision now to allow those who have already registered, and those yet to register, to adjust their plans accordingly.

What does this mean?
It means that the empowerment, teachings and retreat sessions will be transmitted online rather than in person to those who have registered. It will still be necessary to register for the US Festival if you haven't already, and more information about this will be shared over the next few weeks.

What happens next?
We will be updating our website and online registration form with full revised details of the Festival. Please stay subscribed to our newsletter to receive updates and keep following our social media platforms.

What if I have already registered?
If you have already registered for the US Festival, our registration team will contact you directly. There are a number of details still to be worked out, so we ask that you wait to be contacted by the registration team once they have full information to answer all your questions, rather than overwhelming them with emails at this point.

Thank you for your patience!I

You still have some time to register for tonight’s virtual meditation class! It’s the last class of our series, Inner Peace, Inner Strength, and we’re exploring how to draw inspiration and strength from others. Join us!
