The members of our community share a passion to embrace a simple, healthy and productive life. We joyfully let go of some of the complications and “attachments” of the modern world to turn our focus more inwards. A typical day includes:
- meditation, contemplation, or prayer (personal practice – not taught)
- yoga asana or other exercise for physical health
- “Karma Yoga”: serving the community with household tasks such as cleaning, cooking, gardening, DIY
- enjoying nature
- reduced Internet and no TV
Many people in the West seek contentment mostly by changing the outer circumstances. We aim to let the outside world fall into a simple pattern, then relax and let go of our worries. We seek to do everything full of enthusiasm and aspiration. As the mind becomes quieter we start to see our deeper needs; to discover what actions and choices will fulfil our heart.
We find that it helps to establish a daily rhythm, allowing flexibility to adapt as necessary. We encourage guests to join some of the practice times however your are free to create your own schedule. We aim to all arrive punctually for lunch, keeping the other meals flexible within the time range.
