During my stay at The Expanding Light, I was blessed to enjoy the delicious food they lovingly prepared for us day after day. The food was so good, AND good for me! I soon began to happily anticipate mealtime to see what delicious fare the divine kitchen staff had prepared for me next! I fell in love with the wonderful vegetarian dishes immediately, and soon discovered that my previous haphazard vegetarian ways would be transformed into a full-fledged vegetarian way of consuming upon my return home. With the Global Kitchen cookbook in hand (chock-full of the recipes they use in the Expanding Light Kitchen) I was ready to introduce my family to the delicious food I was so blessed to enjoy. I've tried a new recipe each night and my family loves it!! Now I get to share this wholesome, delicious food with the ones I love, and enjoy reliving the wonderful memories that surrounded each meal. :) Thank you Expanding Light Kitchen Staff!

"All of us just loved and truly enjoyed our stay at Ananda! We learned so much about Yoga and Meditation, our first goal of the visit, and felt so comforted and taken care of by the atmosphere and great teachers at the retreat center. We felt especially fortunate to have Maitri as our weekend guide; she was so gentle, informative, and caring and customized the retreat for our needs. Those of us who attended the Sunday Service were filled with love and joy. Thank you! We'll be back soon."
