AWAKE: THE LIFE OF YOGANANDA is an unconventional biography about the Hindu Swami who brought yoga and meditation to the West in the 1920s. Paramahansa Yogananda authored the spiritual classic “Autobiography of a Yogi,” which has sold millions of copies worldwide and is a go-to book for seekers, philosophers and yoga enthusiasts today. By personalizing his own quest for enlightenment and sharing his struggles along the path, Yogananda made ancient Vedic teachings accessible to a modern audience.
AWAKE: THE LIFE OF YOGANANDA co-director Lisa Leeman will be at the Royal this weekend to participate in Q&A’s after the Saturday and Sunday morning screenings. AWAKE co-director Paola di Florio and producer Peter Rader will participate in a Q&A after the 3:10 PM showing at the Playhouse 7 on Saturday, 10/18.
