Karma Yoga Retreat, March 30-31, 2019 at Ananda Dhiira


It was a very inspiring and meaningful weekend for all of us during this retreat. A weekend filled with spiritual vibration, love, service, sharing, and joy.  We had daily yoga, meditation, spring cleaning, planting, hiking, sharing, enjoying the beauty of nature, and delicious sentient food was served. Kathy (Sister Krpa), Jack, and Daniel have been helping to do the work days earlier before the retreat trimming some tree, preparing the land for plantation, and clearing the grass. Adriana (Sister Arpita) with her sons Max and Agustin were very helpful during the retreat to clearing up the dry wood and grass. Brother Slava, helped in all-round fixing in the house, his wife Sister Anandinii, and their daughter Bhozana were also very helpful.  After the karma yoga, we had a nice walk, enjoying the beauty of nature, fresh air, chirping birds, cute deers, friendly turkeys, and pleasant weather of spring season made our days complete.   In the second day, Sister Padma and Brother Pranesh came with their adorable rabbits.  Everyone enjoyed the softness of the rabbits, and of course, we all enjoy the company of each other.  What a blissful and inspiring weekend we had.  All happened by His grace, thank you, everyone, who came from far away from Toronto, Vancouver, Los Angeles, San Jose. Though most of them meet for the first time, we felt very connected and as one family, a spiritual family.
