Progress of the Ananda Maya Jagrti in Guatemala


The renovation of the new retreat center, Ananda Maya Ashram, is done, and we are now preparing for the inauguration retreat, which will be from 23 – 26 November. This first retreat will be for Margiis only, while future events will also be for the general public. It’s our great pleasure to invite you to come and attend! As we can only host 12 participants, we recommend you inform us by email at the earliest: The renovation has been a tedious process, and it’s inspiring to see the end of it. At one point, the project started to be too much for one person, so I asked Baba if he could send some help. Two days later, Brother Tarak called me and asked if he could become LFT. So, for the last two months, Tarak has been living here and has helped a lot in the process. 

We are now working on the final touch-ups of the website,, promotional materials and strategies, etc. But though the physical renovation is done, we are still missing a few things like kitchen equipment, decoration items, curtains, etc., and should you like to help with a little donation, it would be much appreciated. Okie dokie, that’s all for now, and we are looking forward to receiving you in Guatemala. We are located just 30 minutes from the airport.
