I am moved to acknowledge the generous gift of time and energy some of our community members made recently. We held a community Karma Yoga project one afternoon in which about a dozen of our friends joined us in deep cleaning the Institute from top to bottom.
Together, we practiced being fully present and putting our hearts into our tasks without expecting anything in return. We experimented with taking joy in the act of giving of ourselves in service.
We ended the day with a Deep Relaxation lead by Swami Divyananda and a fabulous meal. What fun it can be to work and relax together, both giving our service and receiving the lessons we learn from practicing Yoga. We will definitely do this again in the Spring.
Thank you all for your service,
