FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What you may be asking is...
WHERE IS SPIRT KIN LOCATED?
Spirit Kin is currently based out of Assisi, Italy, in the heart of Umbria. We are 2.5 hours from Rome, by car or train. Although Spirit Kin's founder Rachel Andersen began her journey in the United States, spending significant time in Hawaii and California, these days it's all Italy! Our programs are mainly based here. There may be a potential future for programs based out of Ananda Palo Alto's more rural center, near Half Moon Bay in California.
DO I NEED TO APPLY FOR THE SUMMER PROGRAMS?
Yes, actually. We are hoping to put together a very short, hassle-free application that just gives us a chance to get to know you better. Once you reach out to us, we can send you a link to our application.
DO I NEED TO ALREADY BE SPIRITUAL TO JOIN?
Uh, definitely not. We think you wouldn't be here reading this if you didn't already have some "spiritual" inclination, whether to improve yourself, suffer less, make a breakthrough, or experience more joy in life. Spirituality is not what it looks like on the surface, but what it feels like inside. Spirit Kin's very mission is to reach out to young adults from all walks of life, even those who haven't had any experience in a spiritual community, with meditation or yoga. You don't need to already come with a daily spiritual practice, even if that is of course appreciated! Many young folk come to us for the first time without any prior experience and walk away transformed.
