How do I Participate?
How We Operate

Thinking of running a workshop? Post it on the Facebook event page to promote it and get people excited to attend. This is a lovely, intimate way to share your knowledge and skills.

If you have a musical instrument, please bring it along with you. There is usually a drumming/music circle each night with dancing, joy and laughter to restore your body/mind system.


Food is in the way of community cooking of vegetarian meals in the community kitchen. The kitchen will be stocked with basics such as grains and legumes, herbs and spices and Chai ingredients.

In the spirit of community, we ask that all participants bring ingredients to share in the community kitchen. The kinds of things we need are: Fresh fruit and vegetables, nuts and seeds of all kinds, protein foods such as eggs, cheese, various milks, tofu and good fats such as oils for cooking and salads.
