Service in Community
If you have liked your experience in the Service is Joy program and wish to extend your stay, the Service in Community Program will take you right into the heart of the community activities, serving alongside community members. The schedule can include morning and afternoon spiritual practices (sadhana) and a full day of service projects, five days a week.
The minimum stay is generally two weeks and spaces are limited, especially during the summer months. This program is available only to those who have participated in the Service is Joy Program at Ananda Assisi, or in a similar program in one of the other Ananda centers or meditation groups. You will also need the authorization of the Program Coordinators and the Retreat Manager.
