Amma in San Ramon - Summer 2019



MA Center is located at 10200 Crow Canyon Road in Castro Valley. Print directions > Park only in MA Center's designated lots. The Alameda County Sheriff's Office will ticket and fine anyone parking or walking on Crow Canyon Road. Parking lots are up to ten minutes’ walk from the main buildings, on unpaved trails and roads. Parking lot map > If you are disabled, ask the volunteers at the Crow Canyon Road turnoff for assistance. 


Because of limited parking at the MA Center, the best way to help everyone get to the Devi Bhava program is to carpool. Devi Bhava parking opens at 4:00 pm. If you have two or more people in your car, please go directly to the MA Center to park. If you have fewer than two, please go first to 18 Crow Canyon Court in San Ramon where you can carpool or take a shuttle to the MA Center.


If you can, please carpool. Carpooling makes the most of MA Center’s limited parking, spares the air, and helps everyone get to Amma's programs. The best time to carpool is one to two hours before a program begins. For a ride back, go to the Carpool Center, located near the Peach Cottage. Volunteers can help you find a ride through the end of every program.
Carpool Center hours:
Public programs: Opens two hours before the morning programs and closes half hour after the end of the evening program.
Retreat and Devi Bhava: Carpool center is closed during the Q&A session with Amma on the second day of the retreat. And from 7 am on June 15 until end of the Devi Bhava program.
