Live the
Eternal Way

The Art and Practice of Self-Realization

Are You Ready to Live Fully, Live Well,
and Awaken to your Full Potential?

“Decide. Decide you will fulfill your highest potential…
Every day is a chance to wake up. Every day is a chance to live the divine life.
To do it consciously, we must decide.”

- Yogacharya O’Brian

There is divine potential in the heart of every person that awaits our recognition and cooperation.

“What you are is much greater than anything or anyone else you have ever yearned for. God is manifest in you in a way that God is not manifest in any other human being.
