About Nayaswami Padma
Nayaswami Padma McGilloway is the co-spiritual director and a kriyacharya of the Ananda Washington Sangha and Community located in the greater Seattle area.
Padma offers classes in spiritual counseling and inspired parenting and she is the lead teacher for the very successful seven month kriya training program which she established many years ago. Padma has organized and directed the weekly kriya satsang groups for over twenty years. These groups have grown to include upward one hundred participants. She also oversees the activities of the Sangha (events, personnel, fundraising and counseling), Ananda’s East West Bookshop and Living Wisely Thrift store.
Her leadership and teaching skills were honed in her many years of working with Swami Kriyananda in the publishing, including the foreign rights licensing of his nearly 150 books (in 33 languages).
Prior to accepting Swami Kriyananda’s invitation in 1993 to move to Seattle to guide the work there, Padma, and her husband Hriman, were residents of Ananda Village in California since the 1970’s where they raised their two children. They led retreats, taught classes and were ministers and counselors as well as leaders in various aspects of Ananda’s work throughout those years.
