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 be a part of a unique 11 day intensive experience or personal retreat, or with your own group. 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 or $33 / day.
Scholarship options are available – please contact us for more details

11 Day Themed Intensives have a fee of $350.
