Welcome to our Community
Our community began in Boston in the early 1970s. People gathered in homes and church basements in Cambridge and Dorchester to practice yoga, explore spirituality, and personal transformation. In time, we decided to leave the city and create a spiritual village in Millis on Village Street. Our hope then, as it is now, was that we could create a place for people to connect with the earth, with each other, and with their spiritual disciplines, in a deep and meaningful way.
The people who live and work at the Ashram are at the core of our community. Many of our neighbors have lived at the Ashram in the past and regularly participate in programs at the Gurdwara and Yoga Center. People move to the Ashram to participate in the life of the community, its rhythms & celebrations, to deepen their spiritual practice, and to help build its programs and maintain the grounds.
The Ashram itself consists of some 20 acres of land with various construction styles reflecting its past as a rural retreat. Ashram members living on the grounds live in a cabin, in private garden-style apartments, and in our New England camp-style apartment building, all complete with modern amenities. Community activities include daily group sadhana, kirtan (spiritual music), Kundalini & Hatha yoga classes at our yoga center, and the opportunity to serve and contribute to the work of the Ashram.
Located in a quiet country setting, the Ashram is a peaceful refuge to call home and we believe ideal for personal retreats, weekend workshops, and yoga teacher training getaways, as well as weekly Sikh Gurdwara services and community meals.
