Ananda Meditation Retreat

Here are a few comments from recent participants:
"In the 3 weeks here, I had more sublime, expansive and revelatory experiences that I have had in most years of my life. This is a magical place with the perfect balance of support and freedom. In addition to meditation, yoga and spiritual explorations, I swam in the Yuba Rive, hiked in the Sierra Nevada mountains and seeped myself in the beauty of this land." --Rosemary H., Massachusetts

"This program exceeded my expectations. The balance of free time and helping out was just right, and the staff was very helpful and welcoming. The support here in incredible and I loved the meditations." -- A.P.

"Thank you for all the love, warmth, generosity and experiences I cannot put into words. I have learned so much in this short amount of time and I cannot wait to return to learn more. I share my stores of the Ananda Meditation Retreat with every person I meet and they are speechless at the fact that a place like this is available. It is a gem." -- Nishti M, Los Angeles

Ananda is a wonderful place to immerse yourself in nature and meditation. I very much enjoyed my time. I had a great little cabin to sleep in and there was nourishing food prepared everyday. The work is easy enough and if you show a liking or talent for something in particular it is noticed and often encouraged. Everyone was super kind and helpful. Lots of love and understanding. A very peaceful experience. I'm inspired and will most likely return when life allows.

This experience has changed my life in ways I can’t explain. From the moment I arrived, I felt Love. And I mean that sincerely. Everyone, in their own unique ways, inadvertently taught me what family truly means. They have all created an open and emotionally safe environment with kindness, compassion, and respect as the foundation. This app doesn’t allow enough words to explain how this has impacted my life. In short: Spiritual values, how to meditate, amazing yoga postures, the ability to work in a team and much more, are all things I have learned from this experience. I am forever grateful.

My experience at "Ananda Meditation Retreat" was beautiful. I felt very welcome when I first arrived, I remember that as soon as I arrived, Anandi wanted to make sure I felt as comfortable as possible, and I'm very thankful for this. Also, the place is magical and full of good energy, I was able to learn a lot from Paramahansa Yogananda and his teachings. What I loved most about this place is the people that I met there. All the staff members are very good people, they all helped me answer any question that I had, not only regarding the tasks, but about life as well! I'll definitely come back!
