Founded on 26.03.1978
Inspired by Fr. Bede Griffiths, many sisters and women flocked to Shantivanam time and time again and have been enriched by their experiences of traditional ashram life. As a result, in 1978 a hermitage for women under the name of “Ananda Ashram” was opened across the road from the original ashram.
As Shantivanam has been affiliated to the Camaldolese, the women who wanted to share the ashram life also came under the Camaldolese sisters.
