Summer Newsletter 2024

Swami Aliananda Paramahansa teaches Kriya Yoga breathing and meditation.

Dear Shambala Warriors, Students and Friends,

Peter Ballnik

Firstly, an important announcement regarding dear Peter Ballnik who has decided to step back from his organising role after 5 years. He’s been an immense help in pushing forward the WPM and has been the architect of much of what we are today. I am very appreciative of his efforts and he will be greatly missed.

March Gathering

Thank you all so much for the beautiful gathering in March in Goldegg for our sacred time together. After 4 years on Zoom, it was so fabulous to meet in person. We all had a sacred connection in our lives and it was great to see you in the flesh!

May Masterclass

Thank you so much to everyone that came for the May Masterclass. It was a miracle with the timing that I was just strong enough to do it. I had been very poorly in the lead up to the event but recovered sufficiently to do the seminars. I also found great strength and energy from seeing and being with you all so thank you!!

India Trip

As many of you will know I journeyed to India with my son Selwyn. We met a wonderful Swami who took us on a fascinating trip around the temples of Tamil Nadu in the south of the country. We had a very, transformational journey.

Unfortunately however, I fell ill with pneumonia and had to come home to Cornwall early, where I fell ill again. I have been advised by my doctor against travel which has led to me having to cancel the May/June trip to Austria.

November Trip to Austria

I have also been advised not to journey in November due to the weakness of my lungs and the cold weather.

I’m so disappointed not to be able to see you all in person BUT I will continue with the course on zoom and would love for you all to attend online and we can be together then.

The teachings will be 22, 23, 24th November – 10am – 12.30pm each day. I will also do the Sunday afternoon for the teachers as usual, 2pm – 4.30pm. Each session will be £50.

Bookings for the November event will be through Sapphire so please contact her.


September in Cornwall

As usual I will be welcoming you all to Cornwall in September as planned for the Michaelmas Pilgrimage.

The dates are 25th gathering at 5pm then 26th, 27th, 28th and the 29th is Michaelmas Day. I will be teaching every morning and visiting sacred sites in the afternoons. Stone circles and then the St Michael’s Mount on Thursday 29th with the service in the chapel. I will also be on zoom on 22nd September at 11am for the Archangel Michael meditation. There is more information on the website so please check there.

Angel of the New Year Workshop

We will have our usual gathering to welcome in the New Year on the morning of 1st January 2025 from 10.30am – 11.30am. It will held on zoom and is a wonderful time for us to gather together and welcome in the New Year. Please contact Sapphire to book: £40

Chakra Journey 2025 for your Diary

Earlier this year we had a wonderful gathering on Zoom over the course of four mornings through January. I would love to do this again next year so will be doing the Chakra Journey course in January and the first week of February. The dates are Sundays 12th, 19th, 26 January and 2nd February, 10am – 12pm. Further information to come but please make a note in your diary.


I hope all these dates and events suit everybody. I’m so disappointed I can’t travel to come and see you all but hopefully you’ll be able to come here to Cornwall. If not, I will see you all on zoom and we can spend sacred time together there. I have tried to cover everything with the planned upcoming events but also have to reduce my workload to take care of my health so I hope I have found a sensible balance with these dates.

Summer Thoughts

The river of life the ocean is ever moving, changing and fresh. If there wasn’t movement and change, we would become stagnated. Welcome to the new summer growth of fullness and light.

With much love and peace,
Swami Aliananda Paramahansa
