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.

He is the living incarnated Buddha and reincarnation of Christ, the Planetary Logos, and was born in Oregon in 1951. We would recommend working with Buddha Maitreya the Christ’s Shambhala Healing Tools & Soul Therapy Music® meditation music as invocations and blessings to resonate with this Truth.
Also there are many resources available on this site, such as the incarnations, recognitions, and enthronements sections detailing Buddha Maitreya the Christ’s externalization process up to this date and video teachings from previous Dharshans. You can also explore the many Monasteries he and Tara support and facilitate in Tibet, Nepal, and India.
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.
