Camano Farm Ashram 

Simplicity – Brotherhood – Self-Realization

The Farm-Ashram of Camano is a 25 acre Nature Farm and Yoga Ashram on Camano Island, Washington, founded  in December of 2012. There are around 12 full time residents who share three homes, and many surrounding friends, dozens of critters, gardens, orchards, meadows, and woodland. 

The Farm-Ashram functions as a plain-living monastery for the modern age. 

The twin ideals of the Farm-Ashram are:

1) Universal, Loving Service to all life.

2) Self-Realization for all Souls. 

A Natural Farm, and a Yoga Ashram, as One. 

The central tenets of the Ashram are Simplicity, Sisterhood/Brotherhood, and Sadhana 

As a community, we are established as a religious order. Residents are eligible to become members of the order, and to share stewardship of the community treasury. To become a member, one must have participated during each of the four seasons; feel inspiration to be a natural person, and have desire to seek God; cultivate humility and spiritual courage, and practice harmony and trust with the natural flow of the Farm-Ashram Life.  

We make our Living by Living

Our way of life is to meet all basic needs directly, through natural farming, building, healing, and living. In this path, we seek to become free, natural people; To live happy in the seasonal rhythms of life; To sow in the spring, and harvest in the fall. To expand and share in the summertime, and to internalize and rejoice in the winter. To live in harmony and oneness with God’s Creation. 

We are not run from donations, but rather are operationally supported solely by the return on the offerings we make to our greater community. Our prerogative is not to escape society, but to serve in loving and universal ways. These offerings include produce from the gardens, plants from the nursery, and medicine, food, and crafts from our hands.  We host events and education pertaining to natural farming, homesteading, and ashram life,  as well as meditation and yoga philosophy and techniques – all ways to share the natural abundance and happiness of our life lived for God Alone.

We participate in local farmer’s markets and events at the South Camano Grange, and host open hours, meals, meditations, and a farm stand at the ashram. 

We hope as a community-farm-ashram, to be a universal template to others, as one way to live a holistic, integrated and spiritual life in community, and also to inspire in friends everywhere, a simpler, more natural, and God-inspired life.
