Physical Release
 with Sandra Amrita MacLanahan, MD

Sunday, June 26th, 2 to 3:30 p.m. EDT * 11 to 12:30 p.m. PDT

What happens to the physical body as it moves toward and ultimately achieves release? Dr. MacLanahan, who spent decades practicing medicine while learning from Swami Satchidananda, will cover the process of aging, what actually happens to the body in our final days, and the mysterious yet fascinating topic of after-life experiences. She will share experiences from having aided her father so he was able to spend his final six years at Yogaville and to die in his bed at home.

At every age but especially in our later years, each of us must address death in all of its manifestations—releasing attachments to this life, disposing of our bodies and belongings, and helping our loved ones cope with their losses. The Integral Yoga End-of-Life Project honors this journey by providing an array of spiritual guidance and practical advice on a topic we may have avoided but that is inevitable. Discover and implement the ideas of six unique, new workshops from Integral Yoga to save your family and friends from these daunting obligations and to prepare and liberate yourself to enjoy the rest of your life.

These workshops are based on the teachings of Sri Swami Satchidananda and taught by his senior students. The companion website,, is an offering built by one of the first Integral Yogis, Karuna Kreps. It provides clear and even inspiring advice and resources to help you make this experience easeful and, maybe even, joyful. Rather than seeing death as frightening and sad, we can embrace liberation from the human form to return to our eternal cosmic consciousness.

Each workshop is offered at a low price of $15.00.  No one will be turned away for lack of funds.  Instead, please choose the “FREE” option.
