Upcoming Programs

Movie Screening
Finding Happiness: When you change, your whole world changes.

Sunday, 22nd July – 11 am to 12:45 pm (Free for all) . 

We will show the movie ‘Finding Happiness’, first released in India in May 2014

A film that brings a new perspective to docudrama, Finding Happiness presents real people living dynamic, harmonious lives in real communities around the world, viewed through the eyes of fictional magazine journalist, Juliet Palmer.

A somewhat skeptical and jaded Juliet meets extraordinary people who not only answer her questions, but welcome her to a reality she had never imagined — founded on inner happiness and freedom. Filmed on location at the Ananda communities in California, Italy and India.
