If you’re interested in an extended stay that would offer a taste of community living while exploring Ananda’s spiritual path, Ananda Village offers the following programs:
While staying as a guest at the Expanding Light for anywhere from two weeks to three months, experience joyful service, establish (or deepen) your daily practice of yoga and meditation, study Ananda’s teachings, and attend events in the larger community. Participants serve at the retreat 6 hours a day, 5 ½ days a week, while helping with the general upkeep of the Expanding Light.
Serve 32 – 36 hours a week at the Meditation Retreat while practicing yoga and meditation and studying the teachings of this path. Service areas can include housekeeping, general cleaning, dishes, kitchen prep and gardening.
During the summer, Ananda Village offers three 1 week programs (each with a different focus) specifically for young adults interested in exploring spiritual living. Practice yoga, meditation and joyful service; attend inspiring, informal classes and enjoy nature outings while camping on the land with friends who share your spiritual ideals and aspirations. Come for all or part! More
