COVID-19 Update: Our Commitment to Well-being

Mount Madonna Center suspends onsite programs until February 1st.

Our commitment to our community and to the pillars of our mission -- service, self-study, and satsang -- remains strong.

Due to health and safety concerns for both our visitors and our staff, and following the guidelines issued by the state and county regarding gatherings during the COVID-19 pandemic, the Hanuman Fellowship Board of Directors in cooperation with the Sankat Mochan Hanuman Temple and the Mount Madonna Institute made the difficult decision to close the Mount Madonna Center (MMC) for the rest of 2020 and reopen again on February 1st, 2021. MMC Programs, Mount Madonna Institute offerings and Sankat Mochan Hanuman Temple have suspended all on-site visits and participation until that time. We remain committed to providing access to the broad range of teachings and practices through online platforms.

During this unique time, we are choosing to reaffirm our values, rejuvenate our physical and organizational structures, and strengthen our community--all in preparation for a healthy and sustainable re-opening!

We look forward to welcoming you back as soon as possible with open arms! Until then, know that our hearts and minds are connected through the blessing of our shared practices and values.

Our core mission and teachings are being offered in creative new forms.

Join us:

  • Online Offerings include weekly Yoga Sutra and Bhagavad Gita classes, daily yoga practices, and satsang offered by our teachers and associated centers.
  • Morning and evening arati continues at our Hanuman Temple; to view videos and live streams, subscribe to the Temple YouTube Channel.

We are unable to host groups at this time, but the physical work continues on the ground and the teachings continue to inspire our community online. Donate to support the Center's efforts during this time and into a brighter future!

Sheltering on the Mountain

Our campus closed to the public in March, but the resident community and essential staff continue to maintain the land and basic functions. We are distancing physically, wearing masks, and observing safety standards applicable to communal life.

But work is underway! Our staff have created a pickup service for our vulnerable population and reorganized our kitchen facilities to meet new standards. We are also tackling maintenance projects and improving our garden systems. More to come!
