The Ananda Institute of Cooperative Living is a spiritual internship program featuring positions in organic farming and permaculture, and various fields of service in community and business. We offer inexpensive internships for those who qualify to experience spiritual principles at work in community and in daily life. Please see our website for more information or apply for programs here, hosted at The Expanding Light.

Additionally, we offer our favorite two-week Summer program, Living With Spirit, an intensive, fun retreat program featuring yoga, meditation, beautiful camping and hiking, classes on spirituality and sustainability, and more.

Participation in the programs of the Institute of Cooperative Living may be right for individuals interested in practical spirituality, which underlies all that we do. People from all faiths and backgrounds are welcomed and respected at Ananda.
