Lay Disciple Intentional Communities Forum

“A nation is built of small communities, and they are built of individuals. The right ideals must begin with the individuals; and you must begin with yourself.”
-Paramahansa Yogananda

Supporting the manifestation of devotee communities 

Welcome! We are devotees interested in developing or joining SRF-based intentional communities.

The mission of the Lay Disciple Intentional Communities (LDIC) Forum is to aid and serve devotees who wish to manifest Paramahansa Yogananda’s vision of Self-Realization Fellowship disciples living the aims and ideals of plain living and high thinking in a community setting.

What is the LDIC Forum?

The Yogananda Seva Lay Disciple Intentional Communities Forum is a resource center, incubator for ideas, networking environment, and place of dialogue for those interested in growing intentional living communities grounded in spiritual harmony.
