AWAKE: The Life of Yogananda is an unconventional biography about the Hindu Swami who brought yoga and meditation
to the West in the 1920s. Paramahansa Yogananda authored the spiritual classic "Autobiography of a Yogi," which
has sold millions of copies worldwide and is a go-to book for seekers, philosophers and yoga enthusiasts
today. (Apparently, it was the only book that Steve Jobs had on his iPad.) By personalizing his own quest for
enlightenment and sharing his struggles along the path, Yogananda made ancient Vedic teachings accessible to a modern
audience, attracting many followers and inspiring the millions who practice yoga today.
Free parking announced (Valley Art Theater in Tempe location)
We have made arrangements with the Tempe Valley Art Theater to have your parking ticket validated at two parking
garages when you go to see AKAKE:
- The Brickyard Parking Garage for 3-hour free parking; with entry access on 6th street or 7th street
- Tempe City Hall Parking Garage for 4-hour free parking; with entry access on 5th Street (across from the Tempe Police Department).
that free parking will not be honored on Saturday November 8, the second day of the showing. There will be a big football
game in Tempe, ASU vs. Notre Dame. This means both parking garages and surrounding parking facilities and lots will be charging $10. It is
recommended that AWAKE moviegoers should use an alternative mode of transportation on that day.
- The Tempe "Orbit" - small transportation busses used to connect Tempe residential areas to shopping and event destinations.
This is a "free" service. Please visit the Tempe Orbit Website for details.
