visiting the ashram
Many people choose to stay at an ashram for a small or extended period of time because they are seeking a place where they can escape from their personal tribulations. Anuttara Ashram provides a supportive environment and community; leading those seeking to find practices and a way of being that may lead to a truer and more authentic way of living life. The ashram is a tranquil and silent space that supports self-discovery, self-love and spiritual understanding.
Being content with the simple living of the ashram helps us to see the deeper meaning and true necessities of life. Those who fully immerse themselves in the experience of living at the ashram leave with a feeling of wholeness, peace and an abundance of love.
