Participation in Karma Yoga is awareness in action and is part of the ashram lifestyle rhythm. The morning program of karma yoga – mindful awareness is where you may be assisting in the organic veggie garden, kitchen, grounds, maintenance or in one of the other interesting and creative projects in the ashram.
The task is only the medium but the practice is to watch the stream of passing mental traffic as an impartial witness whilst fully applying and engaging oneself to the action in the here and now.
By paying attention with a positive attitude to our work, we can lift any task from the menial to the meaningful. This mental attitude/spiritual ideal can be carried with you, away from the Ashram into your daily life and work for living an ongoing life inspired by a yogic culture.
A very unique and rewarding experience, opportunity for self development and reflection.
A fantastic way to have respite from a busy life, learn and experience to live life more consciously/meaningfully.
Wonderful and interesting and educative journey. It cemented things that I already knew and grounded them with a stronger spiritual base and deeper understanding of meditation and other yoga practices.
