Nalini moved to Ananda in 2001 and lived and served in the community for the first two years. Afterwards, she lived independently nearby and continued to serve in the community, working with Mary in the boutique, and teaching at the Living Wisdom School. Nalini says that living in and around Ananda for years completely reshaped her life and moving there was the best decision she ever made! She returned to the UK unexpectedly in 2014 and continues to serve as Ananda UK, holding satsang, a yearly retreat, and a regular online meditation group. She is very interested in creating a community in England. A piece of her heart will always be in Assisi, and she returns regularly to connect with her spiritual family there, and to recharge her batteries!
