We all need time for renewal and rejuvenation, especially now.

For many years, Spiritual Renewal Week has been a transforming event for truth-seekers from around the world as an opportunity to connect with long-time devotees, meditate with lifetime meditators, and enjoy classes from some of Ananda’s most magnetic teachers.

This year, for the first time, it is happening entirely online.

It will be an exceptional week. The entire program is being re-created by Nayaswamis Jyotish and Devi, the Spiritual Directors of Ananda, and others to share a dynamic, online experience.

Not only will there be the usual morning talks, but each day there will be three or four additional short presentations by speakers from around the world.

You will even be able to take tours, join live meditations held in some of Ananda Village’s sacred temples, and more.

Exclusively Online

No need for expensive plane tickets or trying to find available rooms! This year everyone can attend at an affordable cost.

This year’s online approach will allow for many things that haven’t been possible in previous Spiritual Renewal Weeks:

  • Enhanced energy: Profound inspiration from a wider variety of Ananda teachers than ever before
  • More programming: Your reservation gives you advanced access to over 20 pre-recorded talks created just for this event, including two very special guided meditations
  • You choose your schedule: Watch the live talks at your leisure, select from the pre-taped sessions menu when you’re ready, and choose daily guided meditations and evening enrichment. Watch what you love over again as much as you like.

Not possible in person this year, but still a reality in spirit!



Each day of the week will have a special keynote talk, guided yoga and meditation, classes, and an evening program.

Keynote talks will be broadcast live from 10:30 am to 12:00 pm PDT. Additional talks expounding on themes of the live sessions will be pre-recorded and available to you any time.

  1. 5 out of 5

    After 37 years of attending Spiritual Renewal Weeks, I am always uplifted by the fact that there is a true blessing in the whole event…. There are moments that are so pure and perfect that you instantly know that being there is right for the body, mind, and soul. The morning practices start the day with active self-connection…. many different instructors with unique skills lead the way into the morning. The classes are more than educational – they offer a joyful challenge to the mind to act and think in a more wise and expansive way. The afternoon programs deepen the knowledge, and the evening concerts, plays, and chanting all serve as frosting on the cake, as days pass and calmness grows. At the end, I felt blessed and grateful for another week of renewal. I look forward to life and to my next Spiritual Renewal Week with you all. May God bless and keep you.
