  • Description


    For over 40 years, our centre has been a container for both personal and communal exploration. Inspired by the living example of a dedicated teacher and master yogi, Baba Hari Dass, the community’s projects and schools formed organically into a vibrant space for all those who consider it a spiritual home. The Center stands as a modern translation and exploration of the ancient philosophy and practice of yoga.

    As a community of practice, the centre provides context for experiential learning, allowing both personal and collective exploration for those seeking a path to peace. An economy of giving, sharing, service, and care offers a viable alternative to the separation and isolation of much of modern life. Life at the Center is both active and reflective, where those things that have heart and meaning structure everyday life.

    Our place is an intentional space for people choosing a lifestyle of conscious self-development. Meals, classes, and common spaces are shared among residents and guests. Social life arises naturally from the founding principles of collaboration, service, practice, play, and devotion. We work together, play together, chant together, meditate together, and serve together. At this time, we are bringing on new resident volunteers who can stay for a minimum of 2 months.

    This is a project within the Hanuman Fellowship. The Hanuman Fellowship has additional projects in India, Canada, and in Santa Cruz, CA. By providing a healthy, supportive container for transformation and reflection, the Center works to fulfill the Fellowship’s mission: Hanuman Fellowship is organized, as inspired by the example and teachings of master yogi Baba Hari Dass, to promote the principles and practice of Yoga by means of Sadhana (spiritual practice), Karma Yoga (selfless service) and Satsang (supportive community), as well as other spiritual disciplines and learning that foster personal and spiritual development and wellness and that create an environment for the attainment of peace.
