The longing to belong, we’ve all experienced it: the soul’s longing to unite with itself and to serve each other along the path. Come experience Ashram living, come for a short or long stay or with a strong commitment for change on a 40 Day Personal Intensive. Serve your own consciousness while serving in the community.
Keep Up and You’ll be Kept Up!
It’s important that you come with a strong commitment to morning sadhana (which begins at 3:40 am). You’ll be with others who are likewise developing their practice and your positive influence on each other makes a significant contribution to everyone’s success.
Short & Long Term Personal Stays have a fee of $22 a day
