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

If you're coming from the north or east, set your GPS for 339 Main Street, Madison, Maine (Campbell’s Hardware). From here, it’s an easy 15 minutes (10 miles) to the ashram on paved roads.

The directions below take you on the shortest, fastest and safest route to the ashram from Madison. If your GPS wants to take you a different way, PLEASE IGNORE IT.

It may think it knows where the ashram is, but it doesn’t. This is a common problem in rural areas.
