Center Campus

Ananda Center is our new location. The Center is located in the rolling wine-county hills just west of Portland, Oregon – only about 15 miles north of our previous location at the Mennonite School. And the accommodations are upgraded! The dorm rooms are fully furnished with linens and all – it will be like our own B&B autoharp heaven for those of us more mature (ahem) after all those years of camping out. Costs will be similar to last year – with a camping option for those economizing.

We plan to enhance the shuttle service to assist back-and-forth between the classroom building and the dormitory.

Staff from Ananda Center have been enthusiastic about our event. The college emphasizes yoga, music and the environment. The college facilities are the result of rebuilding a former private school into an eco-village modeled on Ananda Village in California. The cafeteria menu is luscious vegetarian fare – and yes, we can have a yoga class if we want! We are excited to have a new home – one that wants to host us and grow with us for the long-term future.






Staying off site.
The campus is just west of Portland, Oregon.
The closest town is Hillsboro, about 10 miles away, where there are a number of motels available.
