Finding Happiness

Most of “Finding Happiness” was shot on location at the Ananda Village in northern California, near Nevada City.

Founded in 1968 on 67 acres of land near the tiny Gold Rush town of North Columbia, Ananda has become a thriving village, with 900 acres, 250 permanent residents, nearly 100 homes, schools from K-8 through college, an infrastructure that includes its own water, energy, and telephone systems, biodynamic and permaculture farms, a yoga and meditation retreat, a publishing house, and a wide variety of community-owned and private businesses. Ananda Village is part of a network of intentional communities that span the globe
