What Others Are Saying

The staff are all extremely well versed in these areas and share all of what they know with students. Every meal served during the retreat was delicious, and if you are camping there are plenty of secluded and beautiful spots to pitch your tent. Enjoy the peace and tranquility that Ananda so willingly gives to all. J. M., Red Bluff, CA
