Mini courses are inexpensive ways to quickly absorb, embody and apply a spiritual principle, by way of focused instruction. Mini courses are designed to help us examine all the aspects of the principles and methods taught in our curriculum, one at-a-time, in short, focused bursts, and on an experiential level that can be reflected in all the areas of our lives.
Mini courses meet once each week for 2-3 hours, in parts that are spread out over several months. Each part is a separate module that can be attended without having taken the previous part.

Course 113 – For Adults.
How To Cultivate A Strong Experience of Bhakti – Part 2
This is Part 2 of a two-part mini course.
Bhakti, the devotion and mad longing for God, the living Sadguru and that Guru’s state, is a spiritual principle that every sage of our lineage speaks about as being an absolute necessity for spiritual transformation and Liberation. Without Bhakti, God cannot be experienced, Love cannot be properly understood and the attachment, attraction and aversion (the ego idea) cannot be destroyed. Bhakti is so essential to permanent spiritual transformation that the Sages of steady wisdom all program it as the highest, the greatest of all spiritual attributes.
There is no Shanti (peace) without Bhakti. With the right leadership and practice, this Devotion, this Longing can be cultivated and fully realized.
In this two-part mini course led by Sadguru Kedarji, all of the instruction and methods necessary to fully cultivate and protect your Bhakti (including the steps to cultivate Viveka and Vairagya) will be taught.
Advance Enrollment Required.
$60 per person, for Part 2.
All parts of this course will be taught by Sadguru Kedarji.
Part 2. Two consecutive Thursday evenings. May 10th and 17th of 2018. 7-9pm.
