Spirituality is the foundation of neohumanism; neohumanism arises out of a spiritual experience of life. Ananda Seva offers instruction in practices rooted in ancient yogic teachings that provide for the balanced development of body and mind while awakening direct experience of divinity. The activities through which Ananda Seva encourages spiritual life include: instruction in meditation and yoga by skilled teachers; regional and international spiritual retreats; and training programs for yoga and meditation teachers.
