The Ananda Community

By stress on spiritual values, and Self Realization, a community exemplifying world brotherhood is empowered to send inspiring vibrations far beyond its locale. – Paramhansa Yogananda

Experience daily meditations, meals three times a week, a Community vegetable garden, fruit trees, and hoop house, lawns, forest, pool, and much more.

Ananda Communities could be described as modern “ashrams” that include individuals, couples, and families from all walks of life and from around the world. Community life offers opportunities for group meditation and yoga, spiritual friendship and service to the ideals and work of Ananda.

An Ananda Community near Lynnwood, just 10 miles north of Seattle, offers opportunities for residency for those seeking to live and share the Self-realization teachings and practices. Prerequisites for residency may vary but all who are sincere are welcome.

Wouldn’t you like to experience a spiritual community of friends whose ideals find practical, serviceful, and devotional expression?

Ananda Communities can also be found in Italy, near the town of Assisi; in Portland, Oregon; Mountain View, California: Rancho Cordova (near Sacramento), California; Nevada City, California; Los Angeles, California; and near Pune, India.
