directions from Farmington



From I/95—Boston Area or Lewiston Area
Via Farmington, Maine

Please print these directions to make sure you have them when you need them!

This route takes you from I-95 through Lewiston/Auburn, Turner, and Livermore to Farmington.

Set your GPS for 222 Broadway, Farmington, Maine (a café called “Soup for You”). From here, it’s an easy 20 minutes (14 miles) to the ashram.

As you leave Farmington, please TURN OFF or TUNE OUT your GPS. GPS is not reliable close to the ashram. It frequently directs people down impassible snowmobile trails that it "thinks" are roads, causing delays and vehicle damage. Please don’t take chances. Follow these simple directions.
