Swami Satchidananda Satsang: Yoga for the City

In 1973 newsman and documentarian Jeff Kamen, who was also a devotee of Sri Swami Satchidananda and had taken the Sanskrit name, Ananda, made one of the first documentary films about Yoga in American life. At the time he was working at WNET/13 which was where many great documentarians had worked. He collaborated with some colleagues and they made a 30 minute long film that we will watch together as our video and have Mr. Kamen present to discuss it, please join us. 

In Sanskrit, sat means truth and sangha means community. Satsang offers an opportunity to come together with IYI senior disciple, Jeff Ananda Kamen, to share how the spiritual teachings affected New York City in the early days. The philosophy of Integral Yoga is explored through this documentary about IYI’s founder, Sri Swami Satchidananda, followed by an informal discussion. Although spiritual paths may diverge, the act of sharing spiritual teachings with others is inspiring and creates a solid foundation for continued practice. People of all faiths are welcome.
