Experience a truly spiritual way to celebrate the inner beauty of this holy time. Highlights of the weekend include a visit to the glorious, 5-acre tulip gardens at Crystal Hermitage; and the Oratorio, a magnificent concert about the life of Jesus, written by Swami Kriyananda.

The program includes our traditional 5 hour meditation on Saturday, a blissful way to uplift your consciousness at this special time. (You may attend all or part).

If you would like a longer stay, there’s a place on the registration form to either add extra nights or come early for a personal retreat or seclusion.

“The celebration of the resurrection of Jesus on the first Easter morn should not end only in gifts of colored eggs to the children, feasting, and new spring hats. One must learn to resurrect the soul from its long sleep and from its sense attachments.” — Paramhansa Yogananda
