Indralaya, a Theosophical retreat camp and community

Indralaya.org * Orcas Island, WA


Background

Indralaya was founded in 1927 by members of the Theosophical Society as a practical experiment in applied theosophical living. These principles continue to form the basis of our philosophy, community life, and programs. 


The rustic camp is located on Orcas Island in the San Juan Islands in Washington State, on 78 acres of forest meadows and trails situated along ¾ of a mile of coastline. Indralaya derives its name from Sanskrit and means “a home for the spiritual forces in nature.” We share the space with bald eagles, deer, rabbits, sea otters, and other wildlife. In this unique environment, individuals and families are encouraged to live in cooperative harmony with nature and each other, experiencing the interconnectedness of all forms of life while exploring individual pathways to wholeness. In keeping with this principle, it is mandatory that no meat, fish, drugs or alcohol are used on the premises, and that there are no dogs, cats, or other domesticated pets. 


As participants in an ongoing experiment in theosophical living, volunteers, staff, and camp program participants partake in vegetarian meals in a community dining room and share in after-meal chores and other endeavors. Indralaya is sustained throughout the year by community work parties. The maximum occupancy is 95 people and visitors are accommodated in rustic sleeping cabins, plumbed cabins, and shared communal spaces. 


The Theosophical Society is a worldwide organization founded in 1875 and dedicated to understanding our place in the universe as well as the purpose and meaning in our lives. As a theosophical camp, Indralaya offers the participation of all peoples of all races, religions, and beliefs. The three founding principles of Theosophy are to form the universality of all humankind, to encourage the study of comparative religion and science and philosophy, and to encourage exploration of the latent powers within humankind. To this end Indralaya offers a wide variety of programs starting in April and ending in October, along with work parties at the beginning and the end of the seasons.
