The Ompalace is a small hermitage
in the Queens valley in Grey Bruce county. It is a secluded DEVI mandir dedicated
to studies of the Navgraha worship of the nine planets, thru mantra, yantra and
tantra and daily pujas to the DIVINE MOTHER. Situated close to the hamlets of
Bognor, Walters Falls and Woodford, it is about 30 minutes from the Owen Sound
Bus terminal with daily connections to Toronto. The airport bus serves this route
three times daily and you can arrange for pickup for a nominal fee.
As a sanctuary it is ideal for
periods of personal reflection and deepening all aspects of relationship with
the DIVINE. We offer ongoing classes, workshops and longer retreats for serious
students. Please inquire for details and availability. You may camp or stay in
nearby Bed and Breakfasts within a few miles on either side of the hermitage.
