Blessings everyone,
Mark your calendars! We are excited to announce that Amma Sri Karunamayi will be coming to Woodstock to grace us with her divine presence on Tuesday, June 30th and Wednesday, July 1st at The Bearsville Theater, Woodstock, NY.

Speaking to all faiths, Amma brings her message of peace, selfless service, divine love and compassion. Amma has extended her time in the USA and is now here for 6 months. Amma will be visiting the UN where she supports programs for peace, equality and justice for all, knowing the interconnectedness of all living beings. She will be adding more ayurvedic workshops, and more vedic ceremonies for the benefit of our health, wellbeing, and spiritual upliftment.

We ask that you participate in your local program by volunteering and donating to help pay for the local expenses. We cannot do this without your support! Donations and volunteering information is at bottom of the page.

Guru Purnima is a three-day silent retreat. It ends with a celebration of the Guru. It is a time to deepen your meditation practice and celebrate Guru Purnima with Amma!
You can sign up for individual days or stay at the hotel throughout the three days.
The first day Amma offers a chakra initiation.
The second day Amma blesses you with individual Shaktipat.
The last day meditation ends with the sacred Guru Purnima ceremony.

Again we ask for your assistance as we prepare for Amma’s visit. Each city on the tour is responsible for paying its own expenses, including hall rental, publicity, mailings, food and a myriad of other expenses. It is through your generosity alone that we are able to cover these costs. Your donations will allow us to bring Amma’s inspiring knowledge and blessings into many lives. Please find it in your hearts to donate what you can. Every small amount helps.
