The Academy is centered in Italy (In Umbria near Assisi) with satellites in the United States (California, Oregon and Hawaii) and emerging in India (Pune and Delhi 2015).

ITALY   The heart of the Academy is ideally situated in the rolling Umbrian hills outside the medieval town of Assisi, a center of spiritual pilgrimage, the International City of Peace, and birthplace of St. Francis.  Integrating East and West, the Academy’s sister organization, Ananda, is an international yoga retreat center located next to the Academy which draws thousands of guests from around the world.  MAP

OREGON  The Laurelwood campus, near Portand, Oregon hosts ‘higher education for higher consciousness’.  The campus overlooks snow-capped peaks in a pristine valley 40 minutes outside of Portland.  Situated on a 150 acres of verdant land, the site is shared with Ananda College and Cities of Light, with plans for sustainable development and permaculture farming.  MAP
