June 2 – 12, 2016
Join us this summer for two weeks of adventure in spirit, friendship and fun at Ananda Village, one of the world’s most respected spiritual communities.
In this program you will learn and experience:
- Spiritual yoga and meditation
- Intentional community and service projects, like gardening, building, and maintenance
- Various spiritual topics, including music, philosophy, education, and much more!
The basis for this dynamic program is at the very heart of Ananda: joy! In this spirit, together we will practice daily yoga and meditation, enjoy meals and satsang (spiritual company), and practice energetic, joyful service.
Ananda Village is the perfect environment for exploring many aspects of the spiritual path together. We’lll work together to accomplish meaningful, fun community service projects, and have time to enjoy and explore the stunning beauty of the Sierra Nevada foothills and Yuba River.
Special Pricing This Year
This program has long been important, inspiring, and fun for those who’ve attended, and also for our Ananda community. In order to make it possible for all who want to join, we’ve greatly reduced our pricing to $200 (for the full two weeks, including meals and all classes) for those who choose to live in your own tent. Other housing options are also available at a higher price.
Please know that our service projects will be hard work at times, for example, 4-8 hours on some days, in hot weather, serving with joy!
This program is led by Badri Matlock and various other Ananda teachers and members.
Our days begin with a morning practice of yoga postures, devotional singing, and meditation. After breakfast in silence, we’ll spend the morning serving in Ananda’s organic farm, larger community, or in our own kitchen, preparing delicious organic vegetarian meals. In the evening, we’ll have classes led by some of Ananda’s most experienced instructors, on topics including meditation, yoga philosophy, music, how to change your consciousness, and more. Finally, we’ll enjoy outdoor adventures in the beautiful Sierra Nevada mountains, including trips to the stunning Yuba River.
