We are looking forward to an exciting summer retreat at Ananda Kanan from July 3 – 9, 2016. The whole week program will include classes on spiritual and social philosophy, creative workshop, Prabhata Samgiita workshop, 4th of July Parade, outing in the nature, and devotional evenings. The program will inspire us to go deeper in spiritual practice and includes Dharma Cakra (kiirtana, collective meditation and sharing), Akhanda Kiirtana (3 hours kiirtana followed by collective meditation), or Sadhana Shivir every day.
This year we are having the professional cooking team that is working with Sudhiira at Ananda Kanan during other events organised there. In this way the participants will have more time to attend the programs of the retreat. For those that would like to cook some special item or Prasad, that can be done in the small kitchen at the Jagrti (the White House).

If you haven’t visited Ananda Kanan recently you are in for a pleasant surprise. Several cabins have been remodeled with their own kitchens. Dorm beds are upgraded with linens available. Baba’s house and the meditation hall have new wood floors. And in from of the dining hall there is a delightful outdoor cafe, with tables, gardens and a fountain. All Margis are cordially invited to enjoy our beautiful sentient home.

Our head cook for the summer retreat is Naomi Minahan. Here she is picking fresh herbs from the Ananda Kanan patio garden to use in one of her delicious creations.

Testimonial for Kitchen Staff

Hi Michael,

Thank you so much for creating such a wonderful environment for our retreat this weekend. As someone who values healthy eating, it was so important to me to have healthy food during my stay. Knowing that I could arrive each day to an abundance of delicious, nutritious food made the weekend an absolute delight. I left each meal feeling nourished and full. Everyone was incredibly friendly and accommodating. I simply cannot wait to return!! (I’ll be dreaming of chocolate lava cake until then!)

With a grateful heart,

Shelly Ohlms
