Who we are

What is an Ashram?

Ashram’s originate in India, and are traditionally the home of a sage, Guru or mystic. People come to an ashram seeking spiritual guidance, and to discover and deepen their connection with the inner Self. Ashram’s are often residential, and also offer programs to the public.
