About Us

 

The Amma Center of Michigan in Ann Arbor, Michigan was incorporated in 1997. The center is located on a 54 acre property just 5 miles away from downtown Ann Arbor.  The property is now home to a 1500 tree apple orchard, a sacred grove to protect biological resources, provide sanctuaries for native flora and fauna, provide oxygen to surrounding area and to provide deep groundwater reserves.

Since 1997, weekly satsangs have been going on every Saturday. 

 

Feeding Programs
Since 1997 we have been cooking and serving nutritious lunches at the Staples Family Center.  We also participate monthly in the Ann Arbor Meals on Wheels program whose purpose is to reduce hunger and food insecurity, and promote the dignity and independence of the homebound in the Ann Arbor area who are unable to shop and cook for themselves by delivering nutritiously balanced meals six days a week.
Nature Projects
 
Permaculture classes, Michigan native plant classes, and other such classes are conducted at the center and we are attempting to follow many of the principles taught.
Currently, there is an ongoing project of designing, developing and planting of a meditation garden. We focus on working with the Nature and trying to use Her challenges as a way to learn more about native plants which are hardy, beautiful and beneficial for many species.  We have also planted trees – crab apples, oaks, tupelos, and redbuds (all are Michigan natives).
