"Very particular teachings"
from United States, June 2018
The center is beautiful. Melody is a wonderful, caring instructor and has put together a helpful binder with a lot of information. The format was also excellent. I learned a great deal in a short time.

"Short But Satisfying "
The property was beautiful and the entire staff was wonderful. The Village is self-contained with everything you would need or want. There are more affordable options than booking a room. You can plan a day experience or visit the tourist places there.

The people were awesome, a great energy and everyone was so kind, caring and lovely. They make it difficult to go back to the "normal world" outside Ananda!

"A great place to reconnect with your own light"
The personal retreat was a great experience. The staff provides as much structure and activity as you like and there is also plenty of time to reconnect with nature. It is a beautiful place filled with great energy for healing and centering.

"Perfect opportunity to connect in an amazing place "
Food was very tasty, and prepared with care and creativity. Everything organic and healthy was a plus.
Double room was nicely decorated, towels and sheets were clean and well arranged.
During meals it was great to meet other people, also some employees who shared their experience at Ananda. The place and scenery was fantastic and the overall energy really inviting to dive into a meaningfull and profound experience.

The Expanding Light Retreat website
My time at Expanding Light was extraordinarily rewarding and peaceful. I wanted a lot of time alone to deepen my meditation practice, and to read, write, and walk, and Expanding Light met all of my expectations and more. It took me a little while to adjust to the quiet, but I quickly got over that and worked myself into a pleasant daily routine, albeit only for three days. When I returned home, I still had four days off before I returned to work , and a couple of my co-workers told me how relaxed I seemed. I will always carry my experience with me. A little lady named Adrienne who was in the Karma Yoga program at The Expanding Light came across my path and told me that I'd probably leave there with the Ananda Glow, and I do believe that happened. Thank you so much for everything.
