About the venue
Welcome to Ananda Gaorii
This year we celebrate our Gathering in Ananda Gaorii, an ashram, farm and learning center located in Denmark.
The centre lives as a sustainable community: growing organic food, practising meditation and yoga, following vegetarian diet and trying to be as mindful and sustainable as possible.
The vision of Ananda Gaorii is to provide experiences, training and information in the areas of yoga and meditation, community formation and leadership, personal development, health and healing, and sustainable and self-reliant living. It also aims to be a space where members of the wider community can come to enjoy music, entertainment and other social functions and meet to discuss means of cooperation for the well-being and progress of the local region.
