Making the Kriya Yoga teachings of Mahavatar Babaji, Lahiri Mahasaya, Sri Yukteswar, Paramahansa Yogananda, Roy Eugene Davis and their successors available to all sincere seekers.

CSAC is a non-profit CA corp. founded in 1985 by a small group of students to promote the teachings of Roy Eugene Davis and the Center for Spiritual Awareness, Lakemont Ga. in California. Over the years many Seminars and Retreats have been sponsored where Roy Eugene Davis taught the Kriya Yoga practices and procedures he learned from his Guru, Paramahansa Yogananda. In 2011 a new board of directors were elected and they began the development of the Retreat facility in Placerville and the promotion of Kriya Yoga and Ayurvedic programs in Sacramento. After the passing of , Roy Eugene Davis,  in 2019, CSAC started to promote and facilitate CSA Minister's classes throughout California. We manage many programs at the Meditation Retreat facility in Placerville, Infinite Life Retreat. We rely on donations from attendees of our programs and our friends around the globe who support CSA’s mission. Our goal is  to be debt free and able to provide programs and classes on a donation basis. We don’t want the cost to prevent anyone from attending our programs and events. We are here to pass along the teachings that have been passed from, Roy Eugene Davis, to us.
