About Inner Growth In Silicon Valley
The purpose of these pages is to present spiritual teachings and practices with which I (the webmaster) are intimately familiar with and find to be beneficial to my life. All of these are located within Silicon Valley in the San Francisco Bay Area. The order of presentation is unimportant. Omega Fellowship Yogananda Adyashanti
Omega Fellowship (also known as the South Bay Center for Conscious Loving) is located in Los Gatos, California. The organization sponsors the following:
- White Spirit Tantra Classes
This form of Tantra is innovative and taught nowhere else. It is often confused with Red Tantra which
focuses on sex. The power of this practice is the unfolding of your ability for profound emotional intimacy.
A spiritual community has evolved around these ongoing classes.
- Women's, Men's, and Couples' Groups
These groups meet once a month, or more often, to explore techniques for profound inner growth.
- Relationship Coaching with heart
Baba provides practical and intuitive guidance to those seeking better relationships.
- Weddings and Memorial Services
People from all over the San Francisco South Bay area attend the groups and use these services. For a schedule of classes and other information, you are invited to visit the Omega Fellowship web site. Baba Nicole Herrick is the facilitator/innovator.

Paramhansa Yogananda tells us how! Yogananda lived from 1893 to 1952. He was born and trained in India and was sent to the West in 1920 with a mission of teaching Americans the value of balancing the material life with an inner, spiritual life. Yogananda wrote the classic Autobiography of a Yogi which was published in 1946. He stressed the unity of all religions, with a special emphasis on the teachings of India and what he called the "original teachings" of Christ. Much of his teachings were absorbed by his student disciples, one of which was J. Donald Walters (Swami Kriyananda) who later founded Ananda Sangha, a spiritual fellowship and community. Learn more.
