  Community Life


♡ Community Member on focus ♡
Rhiannon (and her lovely daughter Molly in the back).

Rhiannon came to Ananda Valley in August last year together with her daughter Molly and her partner Scott. As they tell the story, they just decided to get out there and look for better living alternatives. Such that focus on well-being overall – physical, mental, and emotional. And preferably somewhere in nature with access to lots of fresh fruit! Rhiannon is a proud raw vegan so fruit & vegetables are a must.

She has been such a blessing to this community.
If you come here, you will mostly find her in the kitchen preparing healthy & delicious meals for us. Or in the river. Or doing something fun and educational with Molly.

“Do you require the help of a mirror to see your wrist watch on your wrist? No, you will never do that. Likewise, you need not go to the Himalayas in search of God, who is hidden in your own ‘I-ness.’ Living in the world, put forth your entire self for the service of society, and then you will attain God.”
