Surrounded by 72 acres of beautiful meditation gardens and wild forest in Northern California’s Sierra Foothills, the Ananda Meditation Retreat is an ideal setting for a rejuvenating, inner experience.
Our Meditation Retreat has been a place of deep meditation and sincere devotion for fifty years. Long before that, the Maidu Indians held this to be sacred land. The beauty and presence of the Divine is tangibly felt by all who come here.
The Gaiafield Project develops “subtle activism” practices, theories, and programs and works with like-minded groups to co-create local, national, and global networks of subtle activists to support a shift to a planetary culture of peace. Subtle activism involves harnessing the power of consciousness-based practices like meditation and prayer to support collective transformation, as in a globally synchronized meditation for peace. We believe that in our turbulent times there is a deep need for fostering greater coherence in the energetic fields that underlie communities at every scale.
