George Johnston


George Johnston is a graduate of Yale University, where he majored in philosophy. In 1962, he started to practice meditation and read the spiritual writings of Paramahansa Yogananda, which changed his life and gave him the answers he was seeking. He has led meditations and taught yoga for over fifty years and written many articles on spiritual subjects, drawing on Yogananda's teachings, and truths received from Jesus in our time. George and his wife, Mary Ann, lived in the Clear Light Community at Song of the Morning Retreat for many years, and in 2016, moved to Onekama, Michigan.

In the 1980s, while living in Grand Rapids, George wrote a manual - A Course in Yoga - for students in his yoga classes at Muskegon Community College. It was revised in 2016 and includes spiritual teachings and practices, the nature and purpose of meditation, and general information about nutrition and yoga postures.

In 2002, Jesus and several other masters appeared to Mary Ann in ethereal light and form. He told her she was to write books and, over a period of several years, answered her questions and gave her many messages, including profound truths about God and the divine kingdom of peace, love, beauty, wisdom, and joy within the soul. Two thousand years ago He hinted at some of these truths, using symbols and metaphor. Mary Ann has written three books, which contain inspiration and guidance from Him and other masters and address our spiritual and material needs in this world of modern technology and a rapidly changing way of life.

As we enter an age of greater awareness and understanding of spiritual truth we are greatly blessed that new teachings from Jesus, uplifting messages from Yogananda and Babaji, and the physical presence of other masters who are here on earth have been given to us to open our hearts and minds and guide us.
