Some people are so poor, all they have is money...

Duwara Consciousness Foundation helps people from all walks of life regardless of social status or beliefs to come together in a comfortable and safe environment to share meals, experiences, life events, and even deep friendships!

Many people are longing to belong to a community.  Duwara Consciousness IS that community.

We understand many people come to California for the perfect temperatures and the sea regardless of personal circumstance. Southern California has a large community of wealthy individuals, homeless individuals & everyone in between.

Most homeless people have fallen out the "system". Once this happens, it's difficult to get back in.  With the same token, the wealthy individuals seem to have gone to the complete other end of the spectrum, becoming so disconnected with the truth of the system, that they have become a mouse on a treadmill burning themselves out, not having time for anything (including their own children) but the upkeep of their possessions and wealth. One thing is for sure, all suffer from the same symptoms and issues (explained below). Therefore we are building a sanctuary where all can let the mask come off and become who they really are. Simply a human being in touch with themselves. A break from the rat race. A sense of peace and ultimately self realization.

We are here to help bring unity to ALL people whether you are rich with assets, rich with love and health through our yoga & nature programs.

Why we are doing this?
Regardless of what you consider your status in society, we all have personal issues- from the richest of the rich to the poorest of the poor, we suffer with mental stress, anxiety, depression and addiction.

Stress, anxiety & many other issues can lead to devastating results such as varies forms of cancer, MSD and chronic diseases. By getting back to nature, working and spending time with one another, doing yoga & speaking to your fellow man or even having some time out time for once self, you will realize that whatever your problem is, it can and will be fixed through support of the community around you.
(Wo)Men have been put on the world to help one another through Love. This is scientifically true -  if we were put on this earth for war or anything else but love, we would not need to be trained and forced to change our mindset to hurt, kill or destroy.

Greed and the need of wanting material possessions has destroyed these feelings and we have become lost in the dark. We are looking for something but we don't know what. Our organization will unite all people from all walks of life, regardless of your personal beliefs, gender, or background.

What we do
As a charitable organization, we are pushing the boundaries by acquiring a large piece of land (contributions from local, national, and international residents) where all folks, rich or poor, can come together and build a community within the facilities by working together on organic land creating an organic farm. By setting up food farms and simply getting back to nature, individuals have the option to come onto our community farm, help cultivate our fruit and vegetables, and have daily breakfast, lunch and/or dinner. This will be 100% free! We have simple facilities for anybody who would like to stay on sight such as showers, a place to lay their head at night, restrooms for as long as individuals want or need.

In return we simply ask for your "seva" (Sanskrit word for selfless service) by keeping the facilities upkeep, clean & tidy.

In 2019, we will be adding yoga & meditation retreats to bring visitors peace of mind from their hectic lives and a renewed sense of life purpose.

Any contribution for the upkeep of both facilities will be greatly appreciated by going onto the website and donating. If you feel you can't donate any money, we thank you dearly & deeply for your seva.

All organizations start from a simple thought. Its our job to believe we are doing it for the greater good. This rings true for what Gandhi, Mandela, M.L King & Mother Teresa did. The universe will provide us with everything else. This is truth. It will always be truth.

"Be the Change you want to see in this world"--- Mahatma Gandhi

-Provide hunger relief
-Create a community of unity
-Bring spiritual upliftment
-Promote equality regardless of: gender, color, nationality, ethnicity, social class, faith/religion, age, disability, maternity, marital status, political views, or sexual orientation.

Duwara Consciousness has discovered over a 1000 homeless people in the local San Diego north county area and many thousands more in San Diego proper. The problem is deep-rooted and complex involving many associated issues such as immigration status, addiction, alcohol/drugs and mental health- something we had no previous experience of dealing with. It was a whole new world for us. We looked at the local councils for help, faith leaders and even the police. After looking at every avenue, the roads lead back to us. We acknowledged we had a shared responsibility to help and to make a positive change to the lives that are living on our streets of San Diego and beyond. We (as many others) feel compelled to help as our duty as good citizens to serve in our communities we live in.

We have decided to take the necessary steps to purchase a food trailer and truck so we can serve good, live, wholesome vegetarian food to our community all over San Diego. We plan to be fully operational and take to the street by early 2019.

The food trailer has been estimated to cost up to $49,000. This will include a fully working kitchen that has been passed by San Diego County for Health & Safety, A truck to Haul the trailer to each destination/site on a daily basis, the wrap design and wrap of the truck and trailer.

Any help with designing the trailer (internal or external) would be greatly appreciated. If you would like to participate to help distribute food, locations and times will be added here soon. if you know of any location within San Diego that has a dense population of food deprivation that needs out attention, please do contact us.
