The prosperity curriculum for the Artha program was written by Yogacharya Ellen Grace O’Brian, Spiritual Director of the Center for Spiritual Enlightenment and spiritual teacher in the tradition of Kriya Yoga. She was ordained to teach in 1982 by Roy Eugene Davis, a direct disciple of Paramahansa Yogananda. The principles and practices taught in this program are drawn from the yoga tradition and from the timeless wisdom of universal Truth teachings.
