Community and Satsang Experience

"Presence is freedom. When the mind is quiet
there is nothing to take us away from this moment now."

Hello XXX,

Thank you for your interest in our Community. You are welcome at any time.

I am happy to send you some information about us.

We live here in a beautiful 17th century mansion directly on the river Rhine with 20 people from several countries. The main spoken language is English.

We are an international Satsang and Arts Community centered around the English spiritual teacher Premananda, focusing on the question “Who am I?”. We share the daily life like cooking, cleaning, gardening as well as painting, playing theater and making music.

We have a Zoo with lots of animals and birds in our beautiful courtyard and garden. There is a very warm and heartful atmosphere in the house. We come together through our interest in Satsang, being self-aware and being in presence. We start and end our working day with a community meditation.

There is Satsang every Friday, Sunday and Monday evening at 8pm. Go to Premananda’s website and you will find the link to Premananda Satsang TV.

There is also the possibility to join the meeting through Skype and have a dialogue with Premananda, ask him a question or just say hello. The skype address is: premanandasatsangtv.
On you find a big satsang archive, also with translation in seven different languages.

Every Wednesday at 7.30 pm there is an Energy Darshan with live music and mantra singing. There are also monthly Retreats and Intensive Weekends. Premananda is available for private meetings and formal sessions.

On Tuesday evening there is the opportunity to do improvised theater together and on Thursday evening there is a painting/drawing class.

The Open Sky House offers a 'Community and Satsang Experience' program, where you live, work and play alongside Premananda and the Community.
Normally we suggest staying for a week minimum and then for a month, possibly two. In this longer time some often decide to join the community. All food, accommodation and weekly Satsangs are covered by a contribution of 75 € per week. Come for a month or longer and attend a Retreat for a reduced price.

You also can come as a Satsang guest for 25 € per day with full board in our beautiful dormitory. Or you can rent a room in our guesthouse for 45 € per day with full board. Satsang costs 20 € each Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday.

Retreats are a very nice opportunity to meet yourself, Premananda and the community.
The next Retreats:

Whitsun Retreat from 22 - 25 May 2015
This intimate retreat suites everybody who wants to spend Whitsun in silence and community and nourishes the deepest and real part in us.

Summer Retreat from 17 July - 2 Aug 2015
These two weeks are an opportunity to live Satsang twenty-four hours a day with the loving support of a close community.

We look forward to hearing from you! You can email or call +49 –2173 - 4099203.

Warm greetings,




With a lot of humor Premananda takes the reader on a spiritual journey of knowledge and shows an alternative, which points inside. The journey leads through the path of the heart, the pitfalls of self-sabotage, the growth of awareness, exercises in presence, the discovery of grace, and up to a life in freedom. As he teaches in the community, he brings many examples from living together with his students, and so brings spirituality wonderfully alive in everyday life.


An intensive experiment in conscious living. One spiritual teacher and 20 people with a strong longing for a true understanding of what is real, living together in one house. This film shows the residents in their search of Awakening, with Premananda guiding them from the misunderstanding of separation to oneness. He explains clearly how we are trapped in our conditioning and points us to our true nature.


This film is about a woman in our community who experienced a powerful energy phenomenon unexpectedly and spontaneously in the community office. In this film Premananda and Lakshmi dialogue about her experience of that moment and what happened since then. You can watch the trailer and find more information on our website
