Kirpal Meditation and Ecological Center

Kirpal Meditation and Ecological Center holds a 1000 foot Yoga Studio (Yoga Hale) with kitchen, private bath and an extra two bedrooms overlooking the ocean. There are more than nice fully equipped (some with private toilet and shower) cabins tucked away here and there on our 10 acre property with over 102 different kinds of organic fruit and of our most popular get-away cabins are hidden in a jungle like setting. Close to safe swimming at Isaac Hale park and also we are within walking distance to our almost private thermal heated warm ponds and snorkeling. Volcano is near by for those interested in watching lava flow. Organic markets with local music and food stalls are close by and open at least twice a week. Our fully equipped community kitchen kitchen is open to all. We have safe drinking water, free internet reception and ATT telephone reception. We are open for all kinds of groups, weddings and programs and can accommodate vegetarian and non-vegetarian alike. We have a raw food gourmet chef on site.

KMEC was brought into existence out of devotion to His Holiness Param Sant Kirpal Singh Ji Maharaj (1894 - 1974). KMEC's calling is to assist all guests and spiritual seekers in their transformation into Oneness by providing the most tranquil & serene environments for their practices.

In support of the above, we operates a strictly lacto-vegetarian kitchen. No alcohol, drugs, eggs, meat, or fish is permitted. This is what is traditionally referred to as the monk's diet in the East, in support of great meditations.

Kirpal is completely off the grid, 100% solar powered and aims to preserve power. (please leave your hair dryer home and bring a flashlight) All of our water is collected rainwater, which is purified by state of the art filtration systems into the purest drinking water for you to drink and shower in.

We stand for simplicity and nature immersion as therapy for busy minds. It is a jungle experience, be prepared for all the wonderful night noise and friendly wildlife encounters with geckoes, birds, pigs etc.
KMEC's screened off cabins are simple but with comfortable beds. The showers are partially open with a jungle view. This is not intended to be a 5 star experience.

This was an amazing trip. Everything was great. The volunteer's were very helpful, the food was amazing, the yoga was perfect for stressed muscles. They gave amazing facts about the land and area where we stayed. They provided recommendations on where to go for amazing sites and great memories. Such a great trip. You typically need a vacation from your vacation. Definitely not this one. So perfect!
