One way to boost our spiritual life is to take a pilgrimage to a holy place or a spiritually focused vacation. Below are some of our upcoming pilgrimages and vacations. Contact the Temple office for more information.
Pilgrimage to Ananda Assisi and Visits to the Holy Shrines of Italy

This pilgrimage will include all the wonderful experiences talked about below from our trip last year to Italy, and will also include time at the beach, basking in the blissful Italian sun!
In addition, we’ll offer many more options for people to choose from: elective day trips, time in the Ananda Assisi art studio, paddle boat rides at Lago Trasimeno, and much more.
Start saving up now; you won’t want to miss this trip with your gurubhais!
Our pilgrimage to Italy last year, in September 2014
The Ananda Sacramento community went on a pilgrimage to Italy in September! This Pilgrimage was a great opportunity to connect and grow spiritually with other gurubhais. We followed in the footsteps of Saint Francis and stayed 8 days at the Ananda community in Assisi.
We had many day trips to the holy sites in and around Assisi. We then traveled to La Verna for 2 days of pilgrimage at the place where Saint Francis had his stigmata. We finished the pilgrimage by traveling to San Giovanni Rotondo for 2 days and enjoyed being in the vibration of the holy Saint Padre Pio.
There was a final night to rest in Rome before our travel home. Everyone who went felt truly blessed.
