The center offers programs that support peoples desire to lead lives of greater peace and fulfillment I have always been impressed with the character, respect, and sincerity of everyone I have met at Ananda, guests and staff alike. The ideals of simple living and practical wisdom that Ananda teaches have great value to anyone, regardless of spiritual background. The center promotes harmony among people while acknowledging the need for every individual to think and act freely. I would consider any community fortunate to have such a place in its midst.
