Rev. Devaja Cicolella and Rev. Vimala Pozzi

Nora Vimala Pozzi has been ordained as an Integral Yoga Minister in a ceremony at the Guru Bhavan meditation hall, in the Satchidananda Ashram at Yogaville. Rev. Pozzi’s intention has been to deepen her understanding of the integral yoga teachings and its founder, Sri Swami Satchidananda, a world-renowned spiritual peace leader who, according to Father Thomas Keating, tirelessly promoted transcultural values and understanding among world religions.

Ministers are called upon to officiate at ceremonies and functions that mark the milestones in people’s lives, as well as teach classes, lecture and provide spiritual counseling. Pozzi states, “Although this event marks a big event in my life, it will not change the service I have been offering for years, from prison inmates to people with cancer or chronic illness, as well as creating sacred space for those with pain and suffering to help them find healing resources within themselves.”
