Feedback January 2018

The last eleven weeks at Rocklyn have gifted me with deep peace and nourishment of my inner spirit. It has been pure joy to serve, love and give at the ashram. I was part of the continual cycle of energy as I mixed the sourdough, fed the steaming compost, weeded the garden, kindled fires, freshened rooms, scrubbed and swept. Here, what is once considered 'work' becomes life.

I have found delights abound in every moment, depending on whether your heart is open to notice them. Not only has my activity here been for the benefit of the whole community, but each task has some wisdom for me, each interaction, whether it be with person, animal or earth, contains some hidden treasure.

So in that way I have found a perhaps simple daily life to be immensely enriching. There is a particular feeling you get from sharing with others who are connected to this circle of life at the ashram. I so warmly thank everyone who was part of my life there, it has been such a pleasure to learn and grow with you all. I travel back out into to world feeling brighter, stronger and uplifted!"  Fiona July 2018
