Namaste Dear Ones
As the year 2018 comes to a close, Atmaram and Kashi would like to express their gratitude for all the love, support, and service you have given to the Kashi Nivas community over the years. That, along with your commitment to your own inner work, is what helps us maintain the experience of the 'clear space of good feeling' as Swamiji often describes it. It's the place where one's life is infused with grace, gratitude, clarity, and joy, and for that we wholeheartedly thank you!
Please Note: Atmaram and Kashi will be on retreat during the month of January 2019, and the Kashi Nivas Shiva Meditation Ashram will be closed for public events until the beginning of February 2019. Keep an eye on the calendar for updates.
Welcome to Kashi Nivas
Kashi Nivas is the name affectionately given to the Ann Arbor Shiva Meditation Ashram. The literal Sanskrit translation of "Kashi Nivas" is "shining seat". Kashi is an epithet of the Hindu God Shiva and another interpretation of Nivas is abode or "The Abode of Shiva".
Kashi Nivas, located in Ann Arbor, Michigan, is as a gathering place for the practice of yoga and other events that include chanting, meditation, and programs that support a spiritual lifestyle, interfaith dialog, and community service. Read more...
