Nestled in the forest on the original land on which Ananda was founded, the Ananda Meditation Retreat provides the perfect environment for guests who wish to tap into deep inner stillness.
Ponds, shrines, garden benches and paths are interspersed throughout 5 acres of lush flowering plants and trees. The domed Temple of Silence, a sanctuary of meditation for over 45 years, provides a powerful place for yoga and meditation.
