Awake – The Life of Yogananda
Saturday, April 11, at 7pm at The Arts Station, 601-1st Ave
Tickets $10

Hindu mystic Paramahansa Yogananda brought yoga and meditation to the West in 1920 and authored the spiritual classic “Autobiography of a Yogi.”  By personalizing his own quest for enlightenment and sharing his struggles along the path, Yogananda made ancient teachings accessible to a modern
audience.  This documentary examines the world of yoga, modern and ancient, East and West and explores why millions today have turned their attention inward, bucking the temptations of the material world in pursuit of Self-Realization.
