Meals & Accommodations
Nourishing meals – breakfast, lunch and dinner – are served in the dining room or on the deck overlooking the lake in the warmer months. Vegetarian, vegan and wheat free options are always available. Organic or naturally sourced fish and poultry are occasionally served for those who include them in their diets. Organic fruit and vegetables from our gardens and orchards are used as much as possible. We are committed to buying local and organic products and our menus are designed around what is available seasonally.
All meals are in silence.
We cannot accommodate all special dietary needs, although there is a fridge and cupboard space for guest use. An ingredient list is posted at each meal for those concerned with food sensitivities. Please call ahead to clarify your options.
If you have severe allergies, it is essential to check with us prior to registering. Please see Medical Considerations for more information.
As a guest, all meals are included in your fees. For day or drop-in visitors, meals are:
Breakfast, $9; Lunch $13; Dinner $18.
The Ashram guest accommodations overlook the lake, mountains and forest. Rooms are designed for comfortable, shared accommodation, although single rooms may be available upon request for an additional fee.
We have two primary guest lodges – The Barn and Saraswati Lodge – plus a number of other residences that house short and long-term residents, and dorm-style accommodations for young adults (seasonal).
There are separate women and men’s residences.
Families are welcome and will be accommodated together or in neighbouring rooms.
We have a limited number of options available for the elderly or people with mobility issues. Please contact the office if you have special accommodations needs.
Accommodation is included in your course, retreat or program fees.
We do not have camping facilities on the Ashram grounds. And we are sorry, we cannot accommodate pets.
