Center for Holistic Living and Self-discovery
About Mauna House
The community of the Mauna House was formed in 2011 under the guidance of a spiritual teacher, Ajiit. As the Center for Holistic Living and Self - Discovery, our goal is to practice the art of conscious living in harmony with our natural environment and discover who we really are behind our stories and personalities.
The main goal of Mauna House is to provide tools by which we can learn in practical terms how to bring the attention to the present moment, to be in the state of Here and Now. This conscious presence is the key to become free from our physical, mental and emotional difficulties and find that universal and yet unique beauty that exists inside every human being.
By actively participating in the life of the Mauna House, we are able to start a new relation with ourselves and our environment, based on clear communication and free expression, sharing and discipline. In the supportive environment of the community we learn to start a new relation with ourselves and others based on clear communication, sharing and acceptance. In this open space we can connect to our inner being and find happiness in everyday activities.

Mauna means SILENCE in Sanskrit (spiritually motivated silence). Mauna can be practiced on different levels: by the complete control of the act of speaking or by absence of any means of communication such as written messages, gestures, and head movements. Our main goal is to come to the highest state of silence, Maha Mauna, the inner silence, the stillness of the mind. When the mind is quiet, we can move in harmony with the flow of life.
The natural environment plays an important role in the life of Mauna House. Our huge garden allows us to experiment with different plants, veggies, herbs and flowers and to grow our raw materials for food production. By gardening we witness the growing of new life forms and by caring for them we actually start taking more responsibility for our environment on a bigger scale. The beauty and generosity of our natural environment teaches respect and appreciation of the gifts we receive.
Mauna farm has goats, sheep, chicken, doves and bees. Keeping animals and spending time with them is joyful and at the same time teaches us to take more responsibility. They help us see our own patterns as they appear clearly in the way we treat them, we touch them and care for them, whether it is with love, fear, worry or expectation. As we work with them and form a closer relation with them, we come closer to our own selves as well. Their natural and instinctive way of relating to their environment, to other animals and also to us is a reminder of the simple beauty of life.
Beekeeping has a special place in our farm life. Bees have always been appreciated even in ancient cultures for their remarkable qualities and their example is a direct teaching about the most important values a spiritual seeker needs to follow.
